La jouabilité, "à la Nintendo", ne pose aucun problème. D’autant qu’une sorte de pense-bête est disponible dans le menu principal pour se rappeler des manipulations. Les bruitages sont très variés et la musique soutient au mieux l’action. Le seul reproche concerne l’unique fichier de sauvegarde disponible. C’est dur!
This is simply one of the best portable games ever made. It'll suck away hours of your time and leave you begging for more. No gamer should go without an experience like this.
As far as platformers go, Wario Land 3 is a game that fires on all cylinders. Massive replay value rounds out perfect gameplay, a battery save keeps your progress, and a plethora of cutscenes further serves to delight one's senses past the point of pleasure. Additionally, a variety of plot twists and gotchas helps to make the story one of the more engrossing in recent memory, with an end boss that simply has to be seen to be believed. In many ways, it's as if Nintendo set out to make Wario 3 into a 2D RPG. Whatever the intent, Wario 3 raises the bar that all other platformer titles must meet in terms of fun, eye-candy, and replay value.

Auch grafisch weiß Wario Land 3 zu überzeugen. Eure Jagd auf Goldmünzen, Schlüsseln, Schatztruhen und Spieluhren wurde hervorragend in Szene gesetzt. Untermalt wird das Geschehen durch passende Hintergrundmelodien, die nie langweilig werden. Zwar bietet dieses Game nicht mehr so viele Innovationen wie noch sein Vorgänger, aber aufgrund seiner guten Spielbarkeit und Grafik wird wohl kein echter Jump&Run-Fan um diesen sehr unterhaltsamen Titel herumkommen.

The chunky and colourful graphics look very good most of the time and form the multi-colored icing on the cake. This game packs more challenge and substance than most recent N64 titles. If you're looking for something to kill time during this summer's car travel or beach-bound tanning sessions, Wario's your man.
Wario Land 3 is a prime example that there's definitely a lot of great ideas to inject into the 2D platform genre on the Game Boy Color. While third-party companies are sticking Buzz Lightyear, Kermit the Frog, and the Rugrats babies in generic been-there-done-that game design, Nintendo's making the effort to give us what we want in our handheld gaming -- originality.
All Game Guide
Wario Land 3 is a work of such artistry and craft, that no gamer should miss it, especially if you're the kind who usually scoffs at handheld games. Rest assured that Wario Land 3 is every bit as meaty as the very best console action-adventure games. Far from being limp, dumbed down, and simplistic, Wario Land 3 shows that a Game Boy title can have all the muscle of its bigger brothers.
Game Informer Magazine
With colorful graphics, and a hearty quest filled with mind-bending puzzles and out-of-this-world solutions, Wario Land 3 is a game no handheld should be without.
Un juego muy recomendable para pasar unos buenos ratos, la duración es ideal y tiene unos gráficos y sonido al nivel de los mejores en Game Boy Color. El único fallo que se le puede echar en cara es que la dificultad de los niveles más altos pueda llegar a cansar o a aburrir.
Mega Fun
Technisch präsentiert sich Wario Land 3 auf einem sehr guten Niveau. Klare und saubere Grafiken geben dem launigen Spielchen seinen Reiz. Die Bedienung ist ins Wesentlichen intuitiv, ihr müsst aber des Öfteren Wario sehr genau platzieren, um beispielsweise eine Tür in einen anderen Level zu öffnen. Insgesamt gesehen ist Wario Land 3 ein hübsches Spielchen, das so manche Rätsel aufgibt.

Wario Land 3 lijkt veel op Wario Land 2 maar dat neemt niet weg dat het gewoon dope shit is als je ervan houdt.
Super Play
Men mest är banorna som plattformsbanor brukar vara, och det är lite synd för den rena och fina grafiken i Wario Land 3 hade behövt vägas upp av lite mer genomtänkt spelkänsla och upplägg.
