The latest in the Wario series of games has finally arrived, but will Master of Disguise be worth your time?
First Impressions: Whenever possible, we try to give our loyal website viewers the most video footage and most in depth unbiased reviews imaginable. Part of that development is our "initial impressions" where we offer up our first impressions of the title that we are playing.This gives our website visitors more of clear understanding of what to first expect out of the game when they initially pop it into their consoles. If you scroll to the bottom of the page in the Rent vs. Buy section of the review and do not see the "final impressions" assessment then it's safe to say that you are reading our initial impression of the game. Once the final impression is up, there will be no further video or review done to that particular title.
Final Impressions: The final impression is just that, our completed breakdown and overall thoughts on the game based off of our entire game playing time.You can locate the final impressions assessment in the "Rent vs. Buy" section of the review (always located at the very end of all of our reviews). Here you will be able to read our final thoughts on the title and also see any potential grade changes that were made to the game as well (higher or lower). Should a grading change occur, it will be clearly noted with the previous grade, the new grade, and why the change occurred. Although this approach is more time consuming and requires many more man hours, our entire goal has always been to provide the best and completely unbiased reviews possible and we feel that the inclusion of the Initial Impressions and Final Impressions sections will give you a better view of what to expect from a new game. All that we ask in return is for you to continue to support Krakrabbit.com by visiting the site and letting others know about our cause. Together we can supply our fellow gamers with the most impartial information so they can make an informed decision on whether to buy or rent this particular title.
Waaaario: The story of Wario: Master of Disguise features Wario, the greedy, selfish, fat (er) version of Mario. While watching a TV show about a master thief, Wario decides to jump into the TV to start his own thieving adventures.As you can probably tell, the story isn't the strong point of Wario, and while the story is weak, the gameplay can be genuinely enjoyable. The gameplay revolves around using a variety of different disguises that each give you unique abilities. The Cosmic Wario for example allows you to pack a laser gun, and also give you the ability to make low-gravity jumps. The fact that you need to utilize each suit gives the game some sort of depth, but its nothing that will give you huge satisfaction.
WHY: One of the only big flaws with Wario is the crushing difficulty. Wario is supposed to be a game tailored to smaller children, and while they can understand the concept of the different suits and their abilities, the core of the game is punishing even to adults.Each and every environment look confusingly similar, with maybe one very subtle, almost unnoticeable different thrown into the mix. Travelling around the environments often takes countless backtracking and careful inspection of your surroundings!
Rent vs. Buy: Overall, Wario: Master of Disguise is a decent game with DS level graphics and an interesting aspect with the disguise element. The arduous difficulty takes the game out of children's hands though, and makes this an average game to adults.
