wario land 1 is not as good as wario land 2. when wario is immortal, he's more interesting and allows for more interesting gameplay. which isn't to say wario land isn't interesting, just that it's less interesting (and IMO less fun) than WL2
@goaty hot take i couldn't get into wario land 2. as a kid i expected it to be more like wario land 1 and it really confused me to the point where i quit the entire series
maybe i should try it again
@monsterblue it's definitely a COMPLETELY different game, so i can understand that. if you can get into puzzle platformers, though, you'll probably enjoy it!
