Wario Land II ist nicht nur ein würdiger Nachfolger der hervorragenden Super Mario Land-Reihe, sondern sogar ein innovativer Spitzentitel, den jeder Game-Boy-Besitzer haben sollte – sofern er keinen Ausschlag von Jump&Runs bekommt. Also: zugreifen, es lohnt sich!

La palette de teintes a été choisie avec goût et apporte une nouvelle jeunesse à un jeu que nous avions déjà très bien noté en noir et blanc. Non seulement le jeu ne perd rien de son intérêt mais, en plus, il gagne en qualité de réalisation.

Ogólnie gra stoi na wysokim poziomie, jest bardzo długa i gra się w nią bardzo dobrze. Ukończenie jej w 100% jest dosyć trudne i wymaga poświęcenia grze dużej ilości czasu. Wiele przejść jest ukrytych lub trudno dostępnych, a ich odkrycie podczas przeczesywania planszy jest wielokrotnie dziełem przypadku. Autorzy gry wcisnęli jeszcze jedną bonusową grę, która pojawia się po przejściu gry. Jest nią - znana dobrze z serii Game & Watch - gra Ball. Gra dostępna jest także na składankach Game & Watch Gallery 2 i Game Boy Gallery. Wracając jednak do Wario Land 2, to według mnie mnie należy się w ten produkt bezwzględnie zaopatrzyć. Polecam go z czystym sumieniem.

Si le troisième épisode le surpasse certainement, Wario Land II reste quand même l'un des meilleurs jeux de plates-formes de sa génération et propose une aventure délirante et vraiment comique. Le gameplay est très bien pensé et la chasse aux trésors sera ardue si vous décidez de terminer le jeu à 100%. Un must-have Game Boy qui ravira les gens en manque d'aventure et d'univers décalé.

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.

Wario Land II is another reason why Nintendo is best at creating entertaining platformers. It has been a while before a game had me craving for more and Wario Land II had me doing just that. It's the perfect game to accompany you on a long road trip because of its lastability and replayability. I can honestly recommend this to anyone and everyone.

I was quite satisfied with this game. For a long time I had wished there was a platformer, where you couldn’t die, and now I have it. The graphics are the best I’ve seen on GBC, the control is good, and this game is innovative. However, I have two, related nit-picks. I was disappointed that this game only had one save slot. After Super Mario Land 2 and the first Wario Land having 3 save slots, I expected to have more save slots. For families where more than one person uses the Color Game Boy, having only one save slot could be a problem. The other nit-pick is that, if you save a game while playing on a Game Boy Color, you can’t play it on a Game Boy Pocket or an original Game Boy. This can be a pain for those who want to compare the two systems with a single game.

Value for money? Certainly. This game is a great way to show off the Game Boy Color's abilities? Definitely. Is it the best 2D platformer to come out of Nintendo in years? Far and away, yes. Get this game.

Wario Land II är ett spel som känns väl genomtänkt. Det räcker länge med sina 52 banor och invecklade labyrinter och eftersom Wario är odödlig kan man spela så länge man vill. Och när man klarar spelet behöver man inte vara ledsen för att det är över. Då kan man spela igen, för det finns flera olika slut.

Warioland 2 devient donc, à ce jour, le meilleur jeu de plate-forme de la portable de Nintendo, reléguant ainsi Donkey Kong à la triste condition de pantin !

Warioland II is een prima platformgame. Het enige nadeel is dat er maar één positie is om het spel te saven, dus je broertje of zusje zal moeten wachten tot je het spel helemaal hebt uitgespeeld.

Replay is probably the game’s high point. I mean, sure the game itself is fun, but considering the fact that there are six secret chapters, making a grand total of 11 chapters (that’s 55 stages in all), it’s also got quite a bit of staying power, especially since it takes ingenuity to find the secret routes. There’s also the collection system, which involves the treasures hidden in each level and the 50 map pieces. All-in-all, this game is one of the Game Boy Color’s finest.

If you've never played this game on the original Game Boy, you owe it to yourself not to miss it a second time, particularly when it looks so great. If you've played it before, the experience may seem new in color. I can never get enough of this game...and now it's in color. Who could ask for more?

In the tradition of previous Mario and Wario games, it's fun, funny, and challenging. What more is there? If you like side-scrollers, you've got nothing to lose.

Graphics are outstanding; some of the best the GBC has seen easily. Everything is bright and detailed and almost could pass as an early GBA game. Sound is where this game falls flat again. The sound effects pass but need help. Wario's jump sounds like a thud and the others don't always fit the action they accompany. Music is pathetic; too much of it sounds like it's from a pre-NES console at best and the early stages are just crude blips and bleeps, Nintendo could have done way better. I would recommend this game for any Nintendo fan and Mario fan alike. Just don't expect a groundbreaking game experience though.

Warioland II's innovative elements sadly stop the game from being much fun. Although it is big and pleasing on the eye, you'd be best off getting Warioland I. If you've already got it, though, and are desperate for a new GB platformer, then Warioland II is a solid, if annoying, bet. Technically head and shoulders above its predecessors in the series, gameplay-wise it is bitterly disappointing.
