    Mike it’s great to see game reviews get out to this sight and I got to say it is great to see reviews of games that may have never been as popular as it should be like your I-ninja review, hope to see more especially like sega cd, sega saturn, or dreamcast even, because they are crazy underrated, and if you don’t personally own these consoles you gotta ask James to borrow a console.

    Why in the name of fuck wasn’t WARIOLAND 4 on GBA wasn’t mentioned? Especially after talking about the first Warioland and Wario Ware?
    It’s like everything you complained in this review was done right in it. It is difficult (it even has Hard and Super Hard modes), the gameplay and level design is truly fantastic with lots of unique enemies (IMO it’s more enjoyable than any of the Mario games) and there are LOT of puzzles (including optional tube areas which get really complex on later levels). There aren’t that many bosses (5), but they have multiple forms and the final boss is truly an epic battle.

  • September 3, 2012 at 2:34 am

    Nice to see a GameCube review for a change. I love that console.

    Your reviews are great Mike but if I can say one thing is that you tend to drag your reviews a bit too long than necessary. Don’t get me wrong. It’s great that you take the initiative to elaborate the best and worst moments in a game but sometimes it’s best to simply cut to the chase and get to the point.

    Anyway, it’s my opinion. I hope you’ll take it under consideration and will not take my comment the other way. Cheers.

    Mike the fact you even MENTIONED Ikaruga is awesome!
    Easily one of the best top down shooters, very very difficult 5 levels.

    I would recommend any gamecube (or Wii, I guess) owner to look it up on amazon or ebay. It only cost $20 brand new when it came out, so should be plenty cheap and worth the gamble.

    WariolWorld for the regular Wii would of been cool. im still not sold on the WiiU.

  • September 3, 2012 at 3:26 am

    This review was definitely a treat. As someone who played this game when it first came out and played it again in 2010 for a series of YouTube videos, I was able to reassess the game and drew conclusions similar to the ones in this video. You really hit the nail on the head with the enemy repetition bits, and the slowdown really was pretty dreadful at parts. Even so, it’s a game I have fond memories of – if only for being a new idea for a then-unexplored character.

    And speaking of fond memories, I see that copy of F-Zero GX back there! I would love to see a video on that game. I adore it and make it a point to spread the word of its quality to those who were unlucky enough to miss out on it. Sadly, F-Zero is a series that’s really gotten shafted in the last decade. I can’t tell you how much I would love to see it revived for the WiiU – maybe a video on it would give fans the boost power to push Nintendo for another title?

    But I digress! Good job on the video, looking forward to what else you dig up.

    You are great with your reviews, Mike!
    I actually just started playing “Wario Land: Shake It” for the wii (the shake dimension PAL title). And it is great! You should try that one, if you haven’t already 🙂

    Hey Mike,

    Nice Review. Im interested in seeing an Ikaruga review, too. If you plan to do so, please check out the Luminyx Acropolis review on youtube to get some information on it if you like. The channel is “Darkmatter0lumina”. I never would have guessed the same company who would make a Wario game would come out with a shooter game like Ikaruga.

  • Keith the Genesis Geek

    September 3, 2012 at 8:12 am

    Perfect Review/ I agree 100% about this game!

    I hope to see an “Eternal Darkness” Gamecube review in the future.

    “Here, they just give you everything on a silver platter… That’s really awful because you don’t learn the importance of failure”

    I didn’t expect to get some philosophy in a gamecube game review, but I really like it! Keep putting out videos Mike!

  • JayRam

    September 3, 2012 at 9:39 am

    if you haven’t done so already–I can’t really remember–you should consider making a video showcasing your video game collection.

    “Lives are a holdover from the days of arcade gaming, when each one symbolized another shiny coin to be begged and whined for from your unfeeling mum. They were made obsolete when it was realized that it made for better home entertainment if any player could finish a game rather than just the obsessive psychotic ones.” – Yahtzee

    I don’t know about you Mike, but I would rather play a game that was possible to finish without spending several months trying to master it.

    Besides, in case you didn’t notice, you still fail, but get right back up and try again, without having to go through all the bullshit you’ve already beaten. Just because you’re not punished heavily doesn’t mean you don’t fail.

  • September 3, 2012 at 10:13 am

    Cool Review Mike i love wario world i got the game a day early when it first got release and next review please do luigi’s mansion because you did wario now do luigi since luigi’s mansion 2 comes out next year also james did mario is missing so you should review the better Luigi Game which is my fav. game in the world and say something about jame’s review about mario is missing thanks

  • ActCinema

    September 3, 2012 at 10:26 am

    Nice review, I always wondered how this game played.

  • Myrskalle

    September 3, 2012 at 11:22 am

    Nice review.

    But seriously, stop saying “Super Mario Brothers”, it´s “Bros”.
    Look at the box, B-R-O-S, not Brothers.
    Both you and James say brothers, and it´s wrong.

  • Pyrrhuloxia

    September 3, 2012 at 12:05 pm

    What about Wario Land: Shake It!?

  • zelda-chan

    September 3, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    @Myrskalle, Bros means Brothers. In one of the old Super Mario Bros games you hear both Mario and Luigi say “Super Mario Brothers!” They put Bros on the cover and in the titles cause they can fit the whole thing and make it eye catchy. Mario and Luigi have been brothers sense the very first time Luigi was in a game.

    Also what I originally wanted to say, great review 🙂 speaking of Wario, am I the only one who thinks New Super Mario Bros 2 should be a Wario game? Like the point of the game is to get a bunch of coins! lol that sounds more like something Wario would do, not Mario.

  • JustBurn

    September 3, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    Mike getting better in each review, keep it up 😀
    Maybe you should check/review “Wario Land Shake It!!” for the Wii 🙂

    Also note that there’s Ikaruga port for XBox360 which allow online multi-player. For anyone that though the game was hard, try to achieve over Rank A by doing a huuuuuge chain without breaking it (MAX CHAIN… MAX CHAIN… MAX CHAIN) !!

    Myrskalle: Sorry, but you’re the one that should look better at the box, it’s “Bros.” B-R-O-S-Period (which is a short for Brothers), not “Bros”.
    If you still don’t beleive me, check Nintendo itself spelling the game name: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXppbQwmb0o
    So James and Mike are the ones saying it right.

  • September 3, 2012 at 12:34 pm


    It’s not Super Mario Bros, it’s Super Mario “Bros.”.

    Bros. being a written abbreviation for “brothers”.

  • JustBurn

    September 3, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    aww… Pyrrhuloxia and zelda-chan posted first … didn’t even noticed. xD
    I completely agree with you zelda-chan, New Super Mario Bros 2 coins system is more like a Wario thing 😛

  • DON

    September 3, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    Great review Mike.
    I always appeciate your different and more serious way of reviewing games
    I have to admit that I really passed on this game in my Gamecube years for some reason – seems like a mistake.

  • Midorei

    September 3, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    Ikaruga is not a GC game. It originally appeared on the Dreamcast.

  • Myrskalle

    September 3, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    @zelda-chan and Justburn

    Are you serious? Yes bros is a short version of brothers but it´s still a word of it´s own and you don´t say brothers when it says bros.
    Do you also say “Grand Theft Automobile”? Because you know, auto is short for automobile.
    Do you say “Jet Set Radiotelegraphy”?
    No, you don´t.
    Bros is pronounced /broʊs, and in no other way.

  • Peter449

    September 3, 2012 at 1:30 pm

    Wind Waker doesn’t just give you different clothing when you beat the game. You also get to read the Hylian language that you couldn’t understand the first time around. And a colorpicture camera too, I think.

  • Knarkus

    September 3, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    @Myrskalle/dumskalle 🙂
    Super Mario Brothers is right, bros. (with dot) is an abbreviation.

    Great video Mike, and nice to see Wario Land get a mention. I put a lot of hours into that game back in the day.

  • FrankieSmileShow

    September 3, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    They did release super Wario Land: Shake It! for the wii. It isnt as diverse a game as that one though, its more like a modern update of the old Wario land titles than a sequel to this particular game. More of a regular somewhat gimmicky 2d platformer with a lot of money bouncing around. It was still pretty fun though.

  • Another Guy Named James

    September 3, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    Aaahh, Wario World…

    Despite being short and overly generous, it happens to be my favorite game ever made for The Nintendo Gamecube.

    I keep saying this whenever the subject is brought up, but they should make ANOTHER Wario World with a 2-Player Option. Waluigi needs some non-party game appearances, after all…

  • s1y1n1

    September 3, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    Thanks Mike, keep doing videos!


    September 3, 2012 at 2:15 pm

    I remember renting it one time from Blockbuster (Back when Netflix was never invented yet…)
    That game was soooooo much fun!
    Thanks for giving your personal opinion on this game!

  • Daniel82

    September 3, 2012 at 3:57 pm

    i´m confused reading Mike´s comment i googled megaman 9 and saw a modern game with 8 bit graphics , i always tought mega man 9 was that one that starts on a museum and you get to choose between megaman or forte (bass)….

  • mtfink117

    September 3, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    Loved Wario World, since I’m a huge Wario fan. You mentioned that you didn’t want to make this a Wario retrospective. Well I think you should make a video that is. Go through all the classics, like where he got his start, and Wario’s Woods, and of course through all the Wario Land games. Talk a little about the newer games like Wario Ware and Shake It, and basically give Wario his moment in the sun, since he is in fact awesome.

  • Hyroero

    September 3, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    Listening to your opinions of NES games i really feel like you should try the game Dark Souls.

    Its on PS3, Xbox360 and just recently PC.

    Its pretty much everything you mentioned, challenging but rewarding and very minimal if any hand holding at all.

    Brings back that sense of satisfaction that really is missing from games these days.

  • primus24

    September 3, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    I agree with Hyroero! However, play Demon’s Souls. It’s much better and it just gives you that feeling of accomplishment that modern games simply can’t give you!!

  • themarioo0

    September 3, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    I was thinking about getting this.

  • September 3, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    Sorry Mike, I’ll pass on Toon Link. I didn’t like that art style at all (BUT it was still a fun game.

    BTW, I really like these straight up, honest reviews you’ve been doing. This is one of those games I missed and just never got around to getting.

  • Master Control

    September 3, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    I really enjoy Mike’s game reviews. He touches on many aspects of a game that most reviewers don’t. He has his own voice and comes across as a man with true knowledge and experience.

    Although, I’m always surprised when a GC review is posted and its not for Luigi’s Mansion. In fact, alphabetically, I don’t see it on the shelf there behind WarioWorld.

    That can’t be possible right? There’s no way MFMike doesn’t own a Luigi game about catching ghosts with a vacuum inside a haunted mansion. Not to mention Wario’s ‘coin suck’ technology is a shameful ripoff of Luigi’s vacuum.

  • TheProfessor

    September 3, 2012 at 10:37 pm


    Please tell me that you are kidding. Fake trolling? Please? I’m not gonna insult you, but please tell me you knew that “bros” is an abbreviation for “brothers”.

    Do you say “der” for Dr. or “mer” for Mr. before a name?

  • TheProfessor

    September 3, 2012 at 10:59 pm


    oK, I couldn’t resist. Your comment just made it to meme status.


  • awesomesauce

    September 3, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    @Mike, yeah I agree in almost every aspect except for one thing, the open world environment. I agree with bigger space on disks, you should make worlds bigger, but I think that zelda should stay linear. If you just mean size wise, yes, but they need to have easy access to any part of the map, like a quick travel. I think an open world would be suited more towards metroid or pokemon (if they make any GOOD console game). But other than that I agree 100%. Cartoony graphics, yes, go for it as long as it fits the style. It fit for wind waker because he LOOKed like a cartoon, but cell shading for me didn’t fit for skyward sword, because link looked normal next to these cartoonny people and cartonny graphics. no stupid controls, only for menu navigation, but no moving link around with it, like in the ds games. I kindof agree with no boats, If you can travel quickly to your destination, yeah no boats. you a smart guy.

    Great review! Thanks, I never heard of this game before.

    I disagree with the “back in my day, games were hard!” argument so many classic gamers make. Why is it necessary for a game to kick you in the balls for it to be good? When you were 12 you had time to waste trying to beat these games. But things are different now. There’s so much more we can do with our time now, like posting opinions on the internet!

    I’m not ashamed to say that I used a Game Genie as a kid. That way I could rent games for the weekend and see most of the levels or even finish. I couldn’t afford to own many games when they were $50! My family had the poor.

  • Nebuchadnezzaurus

    September 4, 2012 at 12:59 am

    Great review. I would really like you to review the Mass Effect series, seeing as they’re available on consoles.

  • hammondkelsey

    September 4, 2012 at 1:19 am

    i love this review for three reasons.
    1- “give you a blowjob while feeding you grapes” is a really awesome way to describe how easy a game is.

    2- the later part of my childhood i had a gamecube, and i always really liked the games on it, but i always felt like other gamers thought it was too kiddy or just not as good, like an in-between console. so, it makes me really happy to see Mike doing a gamecube game review.

    3- the fact that Mike stated that NES games were harder is exactly how i feel. when i was very young (from birth to about 10), my dad had an NES, and i remember the games being really hard. im 18 now, and i still haven’t beaten Super Mario Bros 3. New games, while some do provide a challenge, they certianly aren’t as hard as the older ones, simply because the new games always seem to have a cheat code, hints or easy way around a hard level. old games are just like “fuck you, figure it out yourself.”

    anyway, thanks for the great review Mike! even though some people don’t like your videos, i love them because you do all the games on the consoles i love.

  • Clutchkman

    September 4, 2012 at 10:37 am

    Excellent review Mike. I was always curious about this game, and now I don’t have to be anymore! After your thorough review, I feel kinda like I’ve played it and it wasn’t as fun as I hoped. Warioware for the GBA has been my favorite Wario game so far, but I do wanna check out that Warioland game that you mentioned, 3 I think it was. I think you’re right that Nintendo could do more with Wario though, he’s got a cool/different angle than Mario, and some nice moves. I always enjoy your work Mike, rock on brother!

  • Gameking125

    September 4, 2012 at 3:30 pm

    Great review, Mike. I actually have “Wario Land Shake it” on my Wii and I highly recomend it. Though the gameplay may get redundant after a while, its still a great installment in the Wario franchise. Once again, awsome review!

  • Palmerama

    September 4, 2012 at 3:44 pm

    I love the Wario games! Warioland 1, 2, & 3 for the Game Boy were brilliant! Realy want to pick this game up! Let’s hope Nintendo make a Wario game for the Wii U! Heck why not a Wario Bros. game & give Waluigi something else to do!

  • Luktom100

    September 4, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    Seriously, another Mike reveiw. I preffered when Mike was sitting behind the camera
    than making a reviews. Also what the hell happened to the Nerd. James is reviewing everything these days. The real Nerd died for me, when James started to review everything besides games. People could say that, this is an evolution of Cinnemassacre, but you cant really make an evolution when there are only 2 reviewers, becouse then the revolution turns into a long piece of turd which doesent want to came out, for expample if someone Visits the site, becouse he only likes the Nerd game reviews, he wont be interested in any other content and waiting for another episode will be a a long boring anticipation for another episode becouse meanwile James is making a movie review and then hes going to make a Bullshit episode or something else.
    What im saying is that You should find more People for reviewing each content or just leve it be

    If you were in the same room as me right now I would probably kick your ass. Get lost man, your negativity is a waste of everyones time here. Mike rules. I really enjoy his stuff a lot, and I’m worried that people like you will really bring down the great content and free spirit of this site. Mike and James should be able to do whatever videos they want without getting so much shit from people like you. It’s free content, and its awesome. You act like you have ownership over it or something. Get lost whiner.

  • Roger Wilco

    September 4, 2012 at 5:50 pm


    Thank you for what you do, man. I really enjoy your videos and its motivating to other film makers like myself to see the amount of content and hilarious reviews. Don’t lose the freedom of doing whatever the hell you want. For the record, I laughed my ass off at the inspector gadget video way back and actually sent it to my friends. I was bummed when it went down. Keep up the great work, please keep making videos!

    Ignore the negative people and/or delete their comments as they have no place here.

  • Luktom100

    September 4, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    Dear Roger Wilco

    First of all
    If i were in the same room as you, ive probaby would have been screwing you mom right now, becouse i would feel sorry for her to be rasing such an society abomination as you and only my sense of empathy for women, would bring me to this.

    Second of all
    If you hate my for criticising Mike becouse of his review, which in my opinion i didnt like that much as you, than you should hate Mike as well, becouse Mike is doing the same thing as me. He grades and criticise by doing a game review, the same James or any other reviewer, ohh and if you call films making by James and Mike “motivating to other film makers” such as yourself, then you must be a pity and wortlhess filmaker, becouse some of the movies are made litterly about shit and there is nothing motivating making a “Toilet humor” internet movie about a giant Picle with shit on his head, or making a review of how bullshit is made or also complaining about growning grass. The only videos which can be an inspiration for young filmmakers are the independent movies which james made in the past and the last expression of this what could be an inpiration are the Nerd episodes which there is fewer and fewer of them every year. But of course if you like all of the Cinemassacre content than i respect it, but im also a little bit sad becouse that means, that the public got less expactations for their favorite filmamakers these days.

    Soo dont worry bro, people like me wont bring down the “great” content and”spirit” of the Cinemassacre, becouse it has already died a long tima ago:)

    but its a hack for sega genesis sonic1/2/3 very impressive modders made this!

    Good review! Please, do a review of Ikaruga. It’s one of my favorite games, and I’d like to hear what you have to say about it.

  • Roger Wilco

    September 4, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    @Luktom100 and everyone

    First of all, I’m not a kid. I’m as old as Mike and James and I already make a living making movies and doing special fx for television. I still love their stuff. It’s inspirational because they have created lots of content, gotten excited about what they love to do, and now have turned that into a full time job. I love seeing other film makers from the same generation as me incorporating all the stuff they were excited about as kids and being successful at it, it is inspirational.

    I’m sorry to target you, but I feel very angry about all the shit Mike has to put up with here on the boards and elsewhere. I really enjoy his stuff, I think he is hilarious. There has been a lot of jerks on here lately. If I were Mike, I would feel very stressed out when reading some of the things people say, its just so fucking cold and out of nowhere. After Mike initially took over for James, he was very loose and fun with the content he was putting out, doing his own thing and not trying to just imitate James’s videos. There are some similarities in talking points, but only because these dudes are good friends. James and Mike have been very generous with content on here, turning out weekly videos and such, which is a lot of work to do. All the negative people are ruining the fun and spontaneity of this site, and I wonder if Mike and James perceive cinemassacre differently now. Many of the people here behave as if it no longer belongs to James and Mike as if these two didn’t create it. Even though they don’t know Mike and would probably be his friend if they did, they target him as if what he does is somehow under their control.

    As far as Mikes place here. If you go back and watch, some of the funniest Nerd skits were with Mike involved. Mike was helping behind the scenes a lot too I think, that is why he is here. Mike and James are friends. That said, I really do enjoy Mikes videos, I look forward to Mikes videos, and I hope he continues to do stuff out of the love for doing it….I think this whole thing started because of love making movies and a great friendship between these two guys. Don’t poison this site with your negativity. Go do something positive with your life and make movies on your own.

    For everybody who has or ever rips on Mike, I say this: “Fuck you.”

    Check out warioland for the Wii, I just recently discovered it and it’s just the same kind of game: really fun to play and great to finish in one sitting. I don’t really like the 3d environment in this game, the wii warioland goes back to classic 2d platforming and great cartoon like animation. I have to say I think the wario franchise has a lot of potential, from the original game boy game, to the gameboy color, advance, gamecube, wii, they’re all fun games, but they always end up not getting much attention when they come out. The warioware games are also an awesome concept, and the wii version is one of those great party games pretty much anyone can enjoy (and the multiplayer mode only requires one wiimote, which is great when you just own one or two but have friends over)

    Mike is a mother-fucking gangster. If it was’nt for Mike, James wouldnt have done alot of reviews on this site (finding him games, etc). The man has a fucking reel-to-reel projector for god sakes! Want more? The man has a sweet donald duck comic book collection!!! Great review Mike. agreed. bitches have it easy these days with games.

    I agree that Mike helps a lot with the development of the movies and game reviews, but really his not such a good game reviewer. He might be a decent one, but hes definitely not so great at this, like some of you say.
    And its not negativity. Its simply someone elses point of view.

    there are tons of Wario World game cube reviews on You Tube.Why do we need another one?If you want to make a 10min video and really make people laugh.Try and review Code Name Viper on the NES console.But then again there are probably to many reviews of that.Fuck!I !

    Well, like with many other Nintendo games (probably mostly surrounding the classics), the characters don’t say much. Could be their gimmic. The characters have a few one liners whereas the rest of the dialogue is in little text boxes.

    This review contains no humor. I stopped it after 4 minutes. It’s a w4lk through.

    This is not a bad review, actually.

  • September 6, 2012 at 3:22 am

    Yeah I understand. It’s never easy to find the right balance of making a good video review. I’m actually glad you didn’t review those other Wario games because that would take forever, unless like you said, you were planning on making a Wario retrospective.

    Just do what you do best Mike but do keep in mind of the time limit in the near future.

    Mike, nice review and all, but you *really* have to stop explaining in too much detail. The main example being “For this puzzle/boss, you have to…” kinds of things. It kind of ruins it for people who actually do want to play the game.

    I think one of the best things that happened in gaming was when designers stopped booting players back to the beginning of a level or all the way back to the beginning of the game, with the only silver lining being passwords for levels that you beat. Even then, the passwords were sometimes made too long or too complex, as James has pointed out a couple of times. While I did have fun playing the older games, my reflexes just don’t seem to be as fast as they used to be, so I get frustrated when a game doesn’t have checkpoints or save states. I don’t mind a challenge, just as long as I’m still having fun. If I feel like throwing my controller at my TV, then it’s too challenging.

    The game might be a bit too easy, but it seems to be a pretty unique concept. Sounds pretty cool. Anyway, a pretty good review. I look forward to the next.

    they definately should have made more wario games.. after u play one of these, a mario game just seems meh…

    yeah because games need to be mercilessly hard nowadays obviously, lets make u start at level 1 when u die 3 times in a 60hrs rpg or an adventure game thats 10hrs 😀 because u can always learn the maps and all tricks right? nes era games were hard to make the games longer, there was no point in having easy games, u would beat them in a hour or so.
    i like having some challenging games like dark souls on my library, but not every game needs to kick my ass all the time, esp platformers, those are aimed for kids mostly anyways arent they?

    I’m surprise that you didn’t mentioned about the treasures being old nintendo systems

    What the hell was with the Film festival thing? Where the fuck did that come from? I am now frightened and confused… and a little angry.

    Um…..Why does viewing this video in HD change it to a completely different video that has nothing to do with this website?

      I noticed that too, especially on the app. Kinda weird, it’s like the wires got crossed and suddenly a whole different video gets substituted in.

    Very cool about the Wario Ware demo reward 😀 This review and game was very impressive for a Wario game, I am very surprised.
