Storyline and Gameplay
Wario receives an antique globe and telescope that allow him to travel to the once-idyllic Shake Dimension, now conquered by the tyrannical pirate, the Shake King. With the assistance of his longtime rival, Captain Syrup, he must rescue the Merfles, denizens of the Shake Dimension imprisoned by the Shake King. Only by defeating the bosses of all five continents of this strange world can Wario find and confront the Shake King, rescue Queen Merelda, queen of the Merfles, and, most importantly, claim the Bottomless Coin Sack, a never-ending supply of gold.

Each stage has Wario navigating an obstacle course of dangers and traps to find an imprisoned Merfle. Once he frees the little fellow, the countdown begins and he must find his way back to the starting gate before time runs out. Wario must also defeat a boss in each continent, and then buy a map of the next continent from Captain Syrup. Once all five continents' bosses have been defeated, Wario takes on the Shake King himself.

Characters
Wario Land: Shake It features a wide cast of off-the-wall characters including: Wario, our "hero." Captain Syrup, a female pirate (and rival from previous games) who aids Wario on his quest. The Merfles, helpless natives of the Shake Dimension, and their queen, Queen Merelda. The Shake King, leader of a ruthless pirate band who has conquered the Shake Dimension.

Key Game Features:

  • Shake Things Up With the Wii Remote - With the Wii Remote controller turned sideways, veterans and newcomers alike can run, jump and smash their way through hectic side-scrolling stages. By shaking the Wii Remote, you can shake down your enemies, free coins from treasure bags and even cause earthquakes.
  • Side-Scrolling Fun - Each stage is a masterfully crafted side-scrolling obstacle course of puzzles, enemies and assorted hazards. Every stage holds numerous secrets and treasures to discover (and steal). And each stage has multiple "missions" to keep you coming back again and again to unlock everything, collect more coins or just improve your best time.
  • Classic Wario Action and Attitude - Wario returns to form, with all the jumping, power-dashing and butt-stomping we've come to expect. This is surly Wario at his finest.
The Wii Remote: Powers, Weapons, Moves & Vehicles
Wario can jump and dash, as per previous Wario Land games. New to this game is the ability to shake the Wii Remote for various effects. By default, a shake of the Wii Remote makes Wario punch the ground, causing a small earthquake and dazing enemies. Wario can then pick up dazed enemies and, with another shake of the Wii Remote, shake them for rejuvenating garlic and occasionally gold. Enemies can also be thrown, and you aim by tilting the Wii Remote.

Wario also takes control of three different vehicles during the course of the game, all of which are piloted in part by tilting the Wii Remote. The controls are standard for a Wii Remote held sideways (D-pad, buttons), but with an important twist: most of Wario's special moves are accomplished by shaking or tilting the Wii Remote. This allows great versatility but without forcing the player to remember complicated button combinations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 2D Platformer From Nintendo October 4, 2008
By T Boz
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First, do NOT listen to the review from the irate parent because their child couldn't figure this game out. This is a traditional 2D platformer from the people who invented the platformer, Nintendo. Similar to recent releases like Super Paper Mario, Bionic Commando Rearmed, and Mega Man 9, this game goes back to the roots of what made gaming fun back in the 80s, the levels. Holding the Wiimote sideways, you use the traditional button layout to control Wario, and shake it to release coins from enemies and money bags. Another cool feature of this game is the excellent hand-drawn animation from Japanese studio Production I.G. Not only do the animated cut scenes look great, but the in-game animation of Wario and especially his enemies is amazing to watch, and enthralling to play. If you remember the good old days when gaming wasn't all about the polygons, then this one's for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Casual Gamers who Enjoy Fun 2D Platformers October 23, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased WarioLand ShakeIt! primarily because I'm a fan of old school 2D platform games. The Nintendo Wii was the first console I've owned since the Super Nintendo. This game harkens back to the days of yore, when games were fun and engaging.

WarioLand ShakeIt! features excellent graphics, catchy soundtrack tunes, and more importantly, engaging playability. The game uses the Wii controller at key points throughout the game. The level of control in using the controller can range from intuitive (shaking coin bags) to downright frustrating (controlling a unicycle). This is part of the challenge of the game. With practice, I expect to have more command over some of the controls.

The game serves as a perfect introduction for people who like casual gaming. There is an introductory level where you can practice techniques to get a feel for the game mechanics.

Each stage of the game includes several missions, which are above and beyond the task of clearing the level. These missions are challenging, and will require multiple replays to clear. That's part of the fun this game has.

I'm working my way through the game methodically - playing each level and trying to complete each mission before moving along. I've had this game for almost 3 weeks now, and it's still as fun and engaging now as it was when I first purchased it.

Advanced gamers may be quick to put this game down (I've heard reviews complain of the game's short length -pegged at 6 hours or so) - but I think there's really more here (especially with the missions) that makes the game a true challenge.

Do I enjoy WarioLand: ShakeIt? Yes, wholeheartedly. Would I buy this game again? Absolutely.

Positive:
+ 2-D cartoon graphics look very sharp
+ solid gameplay with some great elements new to the series
+ smooth controls that also don't over use motion capabilities
+ tons of treasures and missions add a lot of replay value
+ full of that funny, weird Wario personality and style

Negative:
- main adventure is pretty easy

Wario Land was my favorite game from the original GameBoy, and I don't think I've ever enjoyed a 2-D platformer as much as I enjoyed it. When I heard the series was going to Wii as a full retail game, though, I had my doubts about how worthwhile it would be at full price. 2-D games have been very overshadowed by 3-D in this generation, and now gamers (myself included) are starting to feel that 2-D games are inferior to those in the third dimension. Does Wario Land: Shake It only further push those assumptions or does it prove us wrong?

Wario Land has a funny story, but it doesn't show up very often. Basically the Shake King has taken over the Shake Dimension, imprisoning all the cute little residents, kidnapping the princess, and taking the great treasure: a coin bag that always gives you coins when you shake it. The only one to escape this horrible occurrence (named Merfle) somehow finds Wario in his own dimension, going on with his normal daily life. Captain Syrup and Merfle enlist Wario's help in getting back the land, the princess, and most importantly the coin bag, and that's the last you hear about the story until you defeat the Shake King. Both the beginning and end cutscenes have the sheer comedy you would expect from a Wario game, and the greedy hero takes nothing seriously and always loses out in the end.

The game progresses over the course of five areas, each with four levels and one boss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Kids August 17, 2009
By B.L.
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is in the style of a 2d platformer game, but updated with some new tricks to suit the Wii Console.

I was particularly impressed with the way they handled the tutorial level, where you proceed through the level in much the same way that the other levels in the game work. The great thing about it is that they have set up small obstacles for you to get past that require you to try out each of the main actions that you need to do to be able to succeed in the game. Instead of relying on looking at the book or written instructions on the screen however, they put pictures of the Wii-mote being moved as needed in the background of the scene.

My nephew was just a couple months past his 5th birthday when we got a Wii and once he got the hang of it he went absolutely wild for this game. It was nice that they gave the instructions in such a way that he could understand what he was intended to do (though there were some cutscenes where all of the dialog was given in subtitles, and that I had to read to him).

For the most part they also do an excellent job of gradually making the game more complex in what it's asking you to figure out or achieve to move forward while also mixing in challenging optional goals (such as beating an area within a timer, or beating an area without killing any enemies). The optional challenges also create some extra interest if you need to play the same area repeatedly to get more gold.

My nephew did struggle at times to figure things out, so I think freshly turned 5 may have been just a bit on the young side for this game, but he also didn't have very much background experience in video games (beyond things like v-smile) at the time so he wasn't used to solving the kind of puzzles that come with a platformer game.
