It would be quite easy to make a case for either Super Mario Land 2 or Wario Land as the original Game Boy system's best platforming experience, but given how different the two games are, it almost seems unfair even to attempt to compare them to one another. With Wario Land Nintendo completely re-invented their portable platformer and gave their greedy new character his own game instead of merely plopping him down into the middle of just another standard Super Mario Land presentation. A wealth of new gameplay combined with a unique visual and musical style make the game stand on its own and gives fans of the previous Super Mario Land releases a fresh spin on the series and a game that, at times, feels even more playable than either of the first two releases.

There's nothing better in a video game world than a well-done side-scroller and this is one well-done side-scroller. If you're a fan of Mario's, then rush out and get Wario Land. If not, check it out anyway. There's enough fun here for everyone.

Alles in allem unterscheidet sich Wario Land nicht sonderlich von seinem direkten Vorläufer. Das zeitlos-geniale Spielprinzip der Mario-Spiele sowie das hervorragende Leveldesign garantieren enormen Spielspaß. Die dezent eingestreuten Neuerungen und die Suche nach versteckten Schätzen fügen sich nahtlos in das Geschehen ein. Der eigenwillige Charme des neuen Helden Wario wird vielleicht auch Skeptiker überzeugen, die von Mario langsam die Nase voll haben. Für die Zukunft würde ich mir jedoch wünschen, daß sich Nintendo für die nächste Mario-Fortsetzung doch einmal etwas Neues ausdenkt. Bis dahin bleibt Wario Land unbestritten einer der besten Game-Boy-Titel.

Well Wario Land is quite different from the other Mario titles as Wario can "charge" down his enemies and then pick them up and throw them at other enemies. Wario can also stomp on the enemies like Mario and can fly and "breath fire" using special "hat powerups". The courses isn´t just a matter of getting from point A to B because on all the courses you must find a special coin so that you can open the exit gate. The game is big and average hard. Personally I think Wario Land is the best of the 3 Mario Land games!

He looks cumbersome but the powers of his head-dress collection provide the opportunity for a great deal of skillful exploration. Wario Land is still no match for Super Mario World on the Super NES. This, it seems, is a luxury Game Boy owners are never to have. However what this game does offer in large amounts is fun gameplay. The big bloke is always kept busy with something - be it trying to figure a way to attain a certain level or simply aiming bombs at hapless islanders in one of the two entertaining sub-games. Certainly praise for Wario Land goes beyond those expected of it. Yes it's another platform game stretching the Mario Land theme yet further, but Wario Land's steadfast quality is undeniable.

I still miss Mario, but I'm glad to have the chance to get to know Wario. His clenched fists and crinkly curled "Snidley-Whiplash" grin give me the impression that not only could he hold his own against the plumb plumber, but he could also take out Sonic in a fight. Besides, his greedy grab-all-the-coins attitude might just make Wario a better Nintendo spokesperson than Mario.

Mario's tegenhanger Wario moet het gouden standbeeld van Prinses Paddestoel veroveren op de Brown Sugar piraten. Super verslavend, lang en afwisselend en daarmee een waardige opvolger van de eerste twee super succesvolle delen van Super Mario Land.

Ottima prima prova della gialla nemesi di Mario. Assolutamente consigliato per la sua immensa simpatia e l'ottimo prodotto in generale. E' anche molto semplice da trovare. E costa pure poco. Che volete di più?

There are 6 different endings, depending on how many coins Wario has accumulated throughout the game, extending the replay value much. There’s also the game’s fun factor, which is the game’s main draw for replay. In the end, this was a great spin-off that led to a good series in its own right.

Ce Super Mario Land 3 apporte son lot de nouveautés et le moins que l'on puisse dire c'est que le changement apporte un peu de fraîcheur. Nous faire incarner un nouveau personnage était risqué mais en donnant une vraie personnalité à Wario, le titre bénéficie d'une identité très forte et d'un univers qui lui est propre. Univers que l'on pourra retrouver, avec plaisir, dans d'autres épisodes sur Gameboy et plus récemment sur Wii. Alors venez au pays où l’égoïsme et la cupidité sont des vertus, venez à Wario Land.

Una gran entrega que gustará mucho a los seguidores de las plataformas. También, a los que no les gustase Mario, tendrán una oportunidad de empezar las aventuras de Wario. Es, por descontado, uno de los grandes de Game Boy.

Wario Land still has what it takes to stack up against the platformers of today. A classic through and through, this is just one of those games that no Game Boy should be without.

The fact is, Wario Land never works completely. It is a very easy game that hasn't quite found its direction, and yet it packs the tiny Game Boy screen with as much personality as anything else Nintendo had put out. Wario was simply born to be a star, and he doesn't have to bring any wanna-be in blue overalls with him anymore. Wario Land marked the end of original handheld Mario games until 2006's New Super Mario Bros. – and as long as Wario was there, I could hardly miss him.

Das Game hat einen nicht allzu hohen Schwierigkeitsgrad und ist gut gemacht. Positiv ist die Speicheroption, die nicht nur am Ende eines Levels aktiviert werden kann, sondern auch mittendrin.

At the end of the day, Wario Land does a lot right. It's a great handheld title, even today, and it could manage four-to-five hours of play by itself. It gives you everything you need to know about everyone's favorite anti-hero before he became a CEO of a videogame giant. It's not the most memorable title Wario has thrown himself into, but it's a damn good one, and it really makes me wonder why I love that fat, egotistic, greedy, uncultured, disgusting, abusive, lazy, homoerotic, unkempt slob of a jackass of a princess so much.

Så trots den ganska platta karaktären finns det en obeveklig charm med Wario som förmodligen bottnar i att han är så långt ifrån det vi är vana vid från Nintendo. Ibland älskar vi att heja på skurken, även om han som här enbart drivs av en av människans sämsta drifter – girighet. Wario land är därför ett utmärkt val för den som är ute efter att utöka sitt Gameboy-bibliotek med något kvalitativt som bryter normen.

Wario is a great twist on the typical Mario theme. Best of all, it's all new and that is what I want to see in a game. The music is pretty good, and it's a nice change from the usual Mario theme. It controls well, but Wario looks like a big blur on the screen, and this adds to the difficulty. The play mechanics are just right and as usual Nintendo comes through with another hit. Now how about this on Super NES?

Que de bon souvenirs que ce Wario Land : Super Mario Land 3 ! Si la courte durée de vie et la difficulté moyenne du titre le pénalise, le jeu garde un capital sympathie suffisamment fort pour qu’on replonge sans hésiter dans les aventures loufoques de Wario, un personnage décalé mais rafraichissant. On traversera les différents monde avec plaisir et les plus assidus essaieront évidement de voir la meilleure fin parmi celles proposées et toutes plus drôles les une que les autres. Attention à la sévérité de la note, le jeu mériterait sûrement plus mais le fait que des bugs se soient immiscées dans cette réédition eShop, 18 ans après la sortie du titre, est quand même révoltant !
