This is a pretty long game, complete with branching paths, multiple endings, and secret exits. Even today, Wario Land II is a fantastic title that is the cream of the Game Boy crop. It's as close to a must-buy as you can find on the 3DS Virtual Console.
Wario Land II has quite a few good things going for it. Its excellent gameplay, varied environments, good graphics and sound (for the time), and its impressive selection of transformations and puzzle elements make it easily one of the best Game Boy games ever conceived. Admittedly it doesn't hold a candle to the inventiveness of its successor and the excellent gameplay, graphics and sound of the Game Boy Advance episode. With that being said, it's still a must-have classic for any Nintendo fan. The drastic change in gameplay, taking the franchise farther away from its Mario roots might not be to everyone's taste, but ultimately turns out an excellent choice that gave the series nowadays most of its unique personality, even though we quite loved the gameplay with the different hats.
