Like the gaming equivalent of binge-watching a playlist of the funniest Vine videos, WarioWare Gold provides some enjoyable short attention span shenanigans, particularly for newcomers. But in the absence any substantial new additions and a paucity of worthwhile extras, WarioWare Gold is more like a runner-up silver for long term fans of the series.

Clever tweaks make this far more than a greatest hits package.

It's a shame this is a greatest hits compilation and not a sequel but seeing the full madness of the series in one game is a wonderful journey of imagination and surreal humour.

From its start 15 years ago, WarioWare has always been an exciting showcase of Nintendo's creative ingenuity delivered in seconds-long chunks. Gold continues this bizarre tradition while paying homage to the original games

The "ultimate" WarioWare game mixes together all three different handheld play styles we've seen before.

My main concern with WarioWare Gold, exacerbated by the lack of download play and only one real multiplayer gametype at that, is that it doesn't really have legs. Many of the extra modes are homogenized to the point where if you've played a few of them you've played them all, and it only took me a few days to unlock every game and peruse them individually. It's a step down from the Wii U's Game & Wario; a flawed but creative romp that I still play to this day.

WarioWare Gold it's like a "greatest hits" album, but from the craziest Nintendo IP. 316 five seconds minigames that requires speed and reflexes, and above all, sense of humor. An enjoyable crazy idea that, maybe, this time, falls short in some areas (story) and it doesn't offer multiplayer with one cart or 3D effect.

A good package that pays tribute to the long running WarioWare series and a great opportunity for all the newcomers.

Probably the best entry on this series. Instant fun that lasts while the microgames last... And that may not be for a long time. At least it's an intense and true love.

WarioWare Gold is an off-the-wall title bursting with content and creativity. The 300+ microgames and myriad side modes will keep you coming back to this game time and time again, even with its lacking multiplayer and padded unlockables. WarioWare Gold is easily the best game Nintendo has released in 2018 so far, and a great addition to any 3DS owner's library.
