Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Players are given about four seconds to figure out how to complete tasks and even less time to absorb the hilarity of the scenarios before being given another command. But really, having more time to complete the task would ruin the fun. This version is more complicated than the original, and packs a lot more challenges. The later levels can involve both swinging and button-pressing action, and it gets very complicated trying to remember which games require which action in the blink of an eye.

The new Spindex feature helps by allowing you to return to practice any game you've already played. There is also a Souvenir section where the goodies you win after completing any Boss Stage (the last great challenge of any given round) are kept. Souvenirs range from wind-up music boxes to kaleidoscopes to new games utilizing the motion technology. Wario Ware Twisted! is sure to suck in the kids, and is potentially just as enjoyable to adults -- it's perfect for kids without a lot of video game experience.
