Introduction



Virtual Boy Wario Land was released in North America on November 27, 1995 and would be released on December the 1st, 1995 in Japan. Not even a month later, the Virtual Boy was announced to be discontinued in Japan (Europe never even received the Virtual Boy). Virtual Boy Wario Land is the swan song of a console that was doomed from the start. It's widely recognized as the best Virtual Boy game and the only reason to even get a Virtual Boy nowadays.

The game itself is actually rather straight-forward. It plays very much like an advanced version of Wario Land 1, with less floaty psychics, reworked power-ups and a somewhat faster speed. Its soundtrack is quirky and tries to get the best out of the Virtual Boy's rather lackluster soundchip. It's a game that tries its best to be memorable and fun.

However, I personally have a lot of complaints with the game which we'll dive into with the videos themselves:

These videos are made with 3D in mind and are best viewed in 1080p. If there are issues with Youtube's 3D videos however, I have uploaded 2D version as an alternative.
