"So, in the end, what makes this game such good clean fun, asides from the humour, the beautifully colourful graphics, the catchy tunes and the great gameplay? It's that none of its special and unique traits are overused, conserving their said uniqueness. Vehicles don't appear again and again, while the tilt and shake functions are tastefully and sporadically used, feeling natural and fluid instead of intrusive. All the other little quirks never overshadow the core of the game, making Wario Land: The Shake Dimension exactly what it should be; a game that throws you back to the days where you immediately had fun and enjoyed yourself playing videogames."
