Top Critic Average
WarioWare Gold is a culmination of all the wacky and wonderful Wario titles we have had over the last 15 years. Although it is missing, for obvious reasons, some content from the other games, you are getting the definitive version of WarioWare.
The Franchise was always known for their curiosities and it's good to see that it keeps up with that promise for fans of the series. Besides the short story mode you'll get a best of from the mini games of the series that offer around two hours of regular gameplay before the credits roll.

WarioWare Gold is packed with hundreds of microgames and unlockable goodies, but rehashed levels and a lack of innovation leave it feeling a bit too similar to previous series titles
WarioWare Gold doesn’t really add anything new to the franchise. You know what though? I think that, although it’s a tad disappointing, that’s absolutely okay. It’s brilliant to actually get a brand new WarioGame after nine long years, and this one boasts of of the best WarioWare has to offer, which is frantically fun microgames, lots of little things to play around with, and totally bizarre content… though I’ll always miss Wobbly Bobbly from WarioWare Inc. Mega Party Games, I destroyed people with that in game nights. Whether you’re entering a relay race with a gorilla, wasting bog roll, playing an extreme version of patty cake, you’re in for a barrel (or 3DS) full of fun and laughs!
WarioWare Gold takes the best games since launching on the GBA and brings it to the 3DS with over 300 playable microgames. It's fun, wacky and will keep your attention throughout story mode. It's unfortunately very short and comes with a multiplayer mode that requires your friend to own the game as well. Perfect for newcomers, but veterans might want to give it a skip.
While not a great departure from past entries, WarioWare Gold serves as both a love letter to longtime fans of the series, as well as a perfect starting point for new ones.
WarioWare Gold is simple unadulterated fun which is perfect for those “pick up and play” sessions.
By and large, WarioWare Gold is a great collection of microgames with some funny moments and an oddly charismatic Wario. It’s certainly much better than Game & Wario
Full of personality and using the features of the system to the fullest, it’s a shining example of pure and simple fun. Just like Wario, the game’s a little strange and it has some flaws, but these all end up coming together to make it stand out as a gorgeous addition to your 3DS.
WarioWare Gold is a must have in the 3DS catalogue. With hundreds of mini-games and extras to unlock, it will become one of those games that we must not give up. It's a bit of a challenge having so many recycled mini-games from other games, but they're still just as much fun. Pure addiction.
