Let's face it: Even spin-offs of Mario are viable mascots for Nintendo, a notion which they have liberally abused with the Luigi- and Wario-centric games. Frankly, we have no problem with it as long as the results are enjoyable. Wario Land: Shake It! fits the bill, incorporating some unique motion controls for those who want their games make them less flabulous. We just hope there's no truth to the rumor of a Wario Land: Shake Weight! sequel or else we're boycotting.

FUN FACT: Wario Land: Shake It! featured hand-drawn graphics, a first for the series.
