A game starring the lumpy, flatulent Wario is an odd candidate for such an appellation (as is any
Wii game, for that matter), but Wario Land: Shake It!
may be one of the best-looking games ever. It is an absolute delight
to look at screens of the beautiful Production I.G.-animated platformer.
GamePro has an expansive gallery of screens featuring the man in the yellow hat
running, jumping, shoulder tackling, shaking birds, carrying robots, being on fire, and falling on his face -- all done very smoothly
and gracefully. Sort of. We hope Wario manages to shake some treasure out of Wii owners soon, because we'd love to keep looking at this kind of thing.
