If you were hoping that Game & Wario would show off imaginative uses for the Wii U gamepad that you could never have dreamed of otherwise, it's going to be a disappointment. Actually it’s a bit of a disappointment regardless. Of the 12 single-player minigames, three are brilliant, three are good, and the other six are forgettable. A few retread ground that Nintendo Land broke last year. Others are just gyroscope games that don't really make much use of the second screen at all. Game & Wario might be simple and surreal, but it's shockingly short-lived too, and unfortunately it doesn't have enough of the inventiveness and experimental feel that was previously the series' hallmark.
