WarioWare: Twisted! – Review

 It's hard to think of a game more suited to exploiting the fun of a gyroscope sensor—the built-in motion sensor that detects rotations of the GameBoy Advance—than WarioWare, so kinetic and physical were its mini-games even when they merely involved single button presses.

Rave Master: Special Attack Force! – Consumer Guide
