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. A lack of local download play is a blow, and even though it features fully voiced cutscenes this time around, you will still grow bored and skip them altogether. If you are new to the series, this is an amazing place to start.

Wario Ware Gold is the best of Wario Ware and more, and a reason to pick up a 3DS again. It’s got a super weird sense of humor that isn’t replicated, it pays loving tribute to Nintendo’s history, and most importantly it’s pure fun. There’s plenty of game here for the price as well, with it all being unlocked the more it’s played. A must own in handheld gaming and a good sign that the 3DS isn’t dead yet.

WarioWare Gold is a perfect example of how to take the insanity of microgames from the past and shove them into one packed setting while still having each one stand out. With tons of different ways to play and a multitude of things to unlock, Gold is filled to the brim with wonderful content that’s easy to pick up and play at any time.

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 has always been a fantastic oddity in Nintendo’s library and to gather much of what has made the franchise such a joy into one large collection is great. For anyone new to WarioWare, this is a great place to start. For veterans, it has more than enough new content to make playing it worthwhile, plus you get to have a greatest hits compilation of the best microgames.
Dave AubreyJul 30, 2018
WarioWare Gold has so many tiny things in it that make me smile, and smile I certainly did. This game has so much charm and personality it's hard not to love. Highly recommended for anyone that knows what they're getting into.
Steve BowlingJul 31, 2018
WarioWare Gold is proof that there's life yet in the venerable 3DS line of handhelds. The microgames on offer are some of the series' best, and the fully-voiced cutscenes in the Story mode are hilarious. Challenge mode will give you plenty of reason to come back and the unlockable souvenirs are our favourite in the series to date.
Lee ForgioneAug 06, 2018
Overall, WarioWare Gold for the 3DS may not make waves in the way of new content, but the mash up of microgames from the entirety of the series makes it an ideal entry for fans both old and new. It has everlasting replayability and is a fine example of Nintendo's weirder side.
Daan KoopmanJul 29, 2018
WarioWare Gold is grand game for veterans and newcomers alike. The title features a top notch selection of microgames, which kept me glued to the screens for hours. Even now, I still feel that I’m not done yet. There is an intention to get the highscores on everything and complete a bunch of objectives when I can.
James O'ConnorJul 31, 2018
WarioWare Gold might not be entirely new, but it's the best representation available of what makes this series special. It's a true greatest hits package that showcases Wario's unique weirdo vibe, and this style of play remains inventive and thrilling 15 years after the original Game Boy Advance game. We're still hoping for an entirely new title on Switch in the future, but for now Gold is a compelling, generous victory lap.

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.
Alex Santa MariaAug 22, 2018
The fact that WarioWare is ringing out the last bits of novelty from an old handheld just fits. Everything in WarioWare always feels a little off, a little slapped together. That’s the feeling I get whenever Nintendo announces a new 3DS game at this point, so good on them for the proper theming. Even though it’s weird, there’s a lot to love about WarioWare Gold as long as you’re willing to stomach it.
Tomas FranzeseAug 06, 2018
The game’s hilarious cutscenes impress and add some interesting new characters to the WarioWare universe, the microgame collection is the best the series has featured yet, and some of the unlockable side content is hilarious. If you are fine with WarioWare Gold‘s short length, there is no reason not to pick this quirky title up as the 3DS reaches the end of its lengthy lifespan.
Trevor GouldAug 10, 2018
It’s been fifteen years since the series’ début, but WarioWare remains frantic fun. This fully voiced Gold edition is no exception, offering an addictive and humorous collection of classic microgames that are sure to entertain existing fans, while offering an even better value for those new to the series. Chasing high scores gives the game strong replay value as well. Try the demo if you’re on the fence, but WarioWare Gold would make a great addition to any 3DS library.
Brittany VincentAug 03, 2018
If you've enjoyed the rest of the WarioWare games, there's no doubt you'll find something to love about this fantastic entry in the series. While it would have been great to see more new games added into the fold, it's still very entertaining with a wide variety of different microgames to enjoy, whether you've been there from the beginning or are just jumping onto the bandwagon.
Dan LipscombeAug 15, 2018
The story mode of Warioware Gold only lasts a couple of hours, but those few hours are bursting with enjoyment and madcap humour.
Nick Gillham Aug 24, 2018
WarioWare Gold is a great slice of Nintendo craziness, it’s a celebration of their unique gameplay, their retro history and tight design on minimal inputs. There’s the right mish-mash of microgames in here as well, with returning games mixing brilliantly with new ones and the best elements of past titles. My son is eight-years old, and to be honest if a game isn’t all that good then he’s not playing it, and he absolutely loves this. Granted it’s not like the gameplay has evolved over the last fifteen years, but if you’re in the market for a bit of madcap fun this WarioWare is indeed Gold.
Perry Burkum Aug 17, 2018
Keeping to its roots, WarioWare Gold is a wonderful showcase of the crazy, wacky and quirky history of both its own franchise and Nintendo in general. Acting as a remastered collection of microgames of it’s 15 year span - while also adding new ones for good measure - Gold both encapsulates the essence of WarioWare while also ushering it into a new era. Whether you are new to the series or a mega fan, there’s lots to enjoy here that no one should miss out on.

Boasting the largest amount of content to date, Wario's latest entry is a masterclass in reinvention, breathing life into old games and somehow making the same three-second long mini-games fans have been playing for years feel new exciting. Just as fresh for series fanatics as it is for those who haven't yet delved into WarioWare's absurdist world, Gold is far more than just a collection of the series' best moments; it's an entirely new game, and a great one at that.
Jonas MäkiAug 01, 2018
We had pretty much retired our Nintendo 3DS after the introduction of Switch, but thanks to WarioWare Gold we're going to have to bring the unit with us on our next trip. We enjoy it tremendously and we hope to an edition similar to WarioWare Inc.: Mega Party Games of WarioWare Gold will make it onto Switch sooner rather than later. Fingers crossed.
Derek HeemsbergenAug 09, 2018
WarioWare Gold‘s biggest draw—being a collection of the series’ best microgames—is also something of a weakness. Part of WarioWare‘s appeal is the sheer unpredictability of its bizarre moment-to-moment gameplay. I didn’t feel the sense of wonderment I’m accustomed to feeling with a WarioWare title during my time with Gold.
A.J. MaciejewskiAug 15, 2018
WarioWare Gold is the ultimate collection of microgames. With so many ways to play, oodles of unlockable goodies, and hilarity lurking around every corner; you'd be a goof not to enjoy Wario's latest fun-filled cash grab.
Jesús BellaJul 30, 2018
El carácter de WarioWare no es tan explosivo como en pasadas entregas, pero como recopilatorio de microjuegos puede suponer una excelente alternativa. Le han faltado ganas de innovar, con un mayor énfasis en coronar la propuesta, que aún así no podemos decir que esté incompleta. 300 microjuegos que dan para un modo historia interesante, muchas modalidades adicionales y abundantes elementos desbloqueables.

WarioWare Gold es un auténtico juegazo y todo un regalazo para los fans de la saga. Reúne en un solo título una cantidad ingente de microjuegos y contenidos extras, y estructura su desarrollo y progresión de tal forma que siempre tendremos algún incentivo para seguir jugando y desafiándonos a nosotros mismos.
Alberto LloretJul 30, 2018
WarioWare Gold es como un "greatest hits" de la serie más loca de Nintendo. 316 mininijuegos de apenas 5 segundos que exigen reflejos y velocidad y sobre todo, sentido del humor. Una divertida locura que, quizá, en esta entrega, peca de "corta" y con algunos fallos inexplicables, como la ausencia modo descarga para el multijugador o efecto 3D.
RedacciónAug 02, 2018
La guinda, cómo no, la pone la personalidad de su apartado audiovisual y de su tono. Wario sigue siendo un personaje único y la serie Ware permanece fiel a la intención de Goro Abe y su equipo cuando idearon esta locura. Es una oda al canallismo risueño, una rareza tan maravillosa como el primer día.

Si quieres ser testigo de dónde es que ha nacido más del 90 por ciento de juegos que se publican a diario en plataformas móviles, entonces tienes que checar WarioWare Gold en cuanto tengas la oportunidad. Seguro que si eres seguidor de la serie y fan de Nintendo que se ha interesado por revisar casi cualquier cosa que haya hecho la marca, entonces sobra decir que este título debe estar en tu colección a como dé lugar.

Wario Ware Gold regresa a nuestras vidas por la puerta grande. El descanso dado a la saga nos ha servido para encontrarnos, precisamente, con el mejor, el más completo y el más loco de todos los Wario Ware que han sido creados hasta la fecha. Un videojuego sencillo en su base que no pretende más que una cosa: divertir al jugador.
Marta TriviJul 30, 2018
WarioWare Gold puede parecer pequeño o resultar algo cutre pero eso sólo ni no vamos más allá. Gold es toda una lección —y una reivindicación— de lo simple y efectivo. De la perfecta sencillez. Un recordatorio de por qué Nintendo es la reina en lo que hace y de por qué lo hace tan bien. Aprendamos.
Nicolas VerletJul 26, 2018
C'est aussi l'occasion de goûter à Wario Ware à toutes les sauces, y compris celle de la version Twisted ! et son gameplay tout au gyro restés injustement à quai à l'époque de la GBA. Dommage que le jeu se contente de modes relativement similaires et d'éléments à collectionner pour gonfler artificiellement la durée de vie alors qu'il y avait sans doute moyen d'y greffer un multijoueur digne de l'épisode GameCube au passage.
AnagundJul 26, 2018
Grâce à un concept toujours aussi efficace et grisant, mais aussi de par sa direction artistique déjantée, il fait exactement ce qu’on lui demande, et il le fait bien ! Si vous accrochez, vous pourrez vous amuser pendant des heures, cependant notez tout de même que les quelques variations censées nourrir le contenu ne sont pas des plus prononcées, et que la lassitude pourrait balayer les moins persévérants d’entre-vous.
Thomas PillonJul 26, 2018
Pour profiter de ses incroyables modes de jeu et de ses bonus toujours aussi débiles (sinon encore plus qu'avant), il faudra donc accepter la rengaine, qui ne laisse sans doute pas présager du meilleur pour la série. Mais qui sait, la commercialisation d'un Greatest Hits peut parfois relancer une carrière...

Ed è anche un peccato che, rompendo un po’ la tradizione, il gameplay non sfrutti le peculiari caratteristiche di Nintendo 3DS, che dopo anni di onorato servizio ha letteralmente alzato bandiera bianca per quanto riguarda la questione “funzionalità 3D”. Se siete dei novizi della serie e state cercando un gioco perfetto per l’estate, però, WarioWare Gold fa proprio al caso vostro!
Andrea PalmisanoAug 02, 2018
WarioWare Gold è un compendio della serie che racchiude oltre 300 microgiochi, la maggior parte dei quali sono tratti dai precedenti episodi della serie. Per questo motivo, e per la pubblicazione su 3DS in questo momento della vita della console, appare evidente come sia dedicato più alle "nuove leve" che ai veterani del franchise.

Но все же, как видеоигра WarioWare Gold не совсем состоятельна. Микроигры быстро приедаются, не смотря на свое разнообразие, к тому же, со временем они начинают повторяться. Веселые видеоролики служат единственной целью проходить WarioWare целиком, но этого преступно мало, чтобы назвать ее полноценной игрой.

Met de meer dan driehonderd games is op een enkele suffe niks mis mee en zijn deze zelfs na al die jaren nog hilarisch om te spelen. De grind na de story mode is het door een grote hoeveelheid nutteloze collectibles niet waard, maar de achievement-achtige missies zorgen voor wat meer replayability.

WarioWare Gold is als een greatesthits album van The Beatles: het is verre van origineel en je hebt alles wel een keer gehoord, maar de kwaliteit blijft onverminderd hoog. De krankzinnige microgames volgen elkaar in hoog tempo op en toveren meermaals een lach op je gezicht. WarioWare is even weggeweest, maar het is goed om te zien dat de gameplay na al die jaren nog als een huis overeind staat.

Nemá zmysel opisovať grafiku a zvuk. Každá ha ponúka svoje vlastné spracovanie a to len podčiarkuje, koľko toho vo WarioWare Gold vlastne je. Aj tak ale vydrží len niekoľko hodín a plná suma za túto hru je niečo, čo v rámci herného obsahu pôsobí snáď až cynicky. Dostanete síce naozaj parádnu porciu zábavy, ale za cenu, ktorá vás od kúpy skôr odradí. A to je obrovská škoda, lebo táto kompilácia je poctou pätnásťročnej histórii série plnej invencií, zábavy a absurdného humoru.
