The Wii MotionPlus accessory, which is includedWii Sports Resort is a collection of fun sports games that anyone can pick up and play. This sequel to the popular Wii Sports makes use of the Wii MotionPlus accessory, which gives players the most responsive and realistic experience possible. The Wii MotionPlus accessory, which is included with Wii Sports Resort, plugs into the base of the Wii Remote controller and, combined with the accelerometer and sensor bar, provides an experience that gives players an even greater sense of immersion. Just as with Wii Sports, people compete against friends and family. As the competition heats up, Wii Sports Resort is as much fun to watch as it is to play. First-time players should find it easy to pick up a Wii Remote and jump into the action. Wii Sports Resort takes place on a tropical island. A wide range of activities keep players coming back for one more round. Some sample activities include Sword Play, Power Cruising (racing a water scooter) and Disc Dog, which involves accurately tossing a disc to a cute, Mii-like dog. [Nintendo] Expand

  1. Wii Sports Resort offers more variety and a bit more complexity without alienating that family up the street who only bought a Wii because they love bowling. Unless you're the kind of sullen misanthrope who can only feel at peace when getting headshots with some kind of virtual scope, you'll surely find something about Wii Sports Resort that keeps both you and your non-gaming friends or family coming back for more.

    Wii Sports Resort is a motion-controlled marvel with a little piece of magic included for each and every one of us.

    Just as Wii Sports was exactly what Nintendo needed to help shift units when the Wii launched so too Wii Sports Resort proves to be a perfect advert for MotionPlus as well as still being a cracking game in its own right.
  4. While not every event in the game is going to please you, I'm sure you'll find plenty of things to like, especially with a group of friends.

    Yes, it may well be a tech demonstration of MotionPlus, but on the upside somebody built a game around it for us to have some fun with, and to experience how much WMP really does improve on the original controls.

    By buying Wii Sports Resort you get a game we recommend. The inferior graphics will be compensated by the beautiful sound and great gameplay. The only thing that should be stopping you from purchasing this game is the rare possibility that you have no-friends to play it with at all!
  7. As a solo experience, Wii Sports Resort doesn’t offer much to the lonely and the damned; online play is utterly M.I.A. And the jury is still out on the Wii MotionPlus attachment. It makes a difference, yes, but that difference often seems marginal at best.

    This is an upgrade to Wii Sports and from what I can say, it's AWESOME!!!!!. New features such as using the Wii MotionPlus and Wuhu IslandThis is an upgrade to Wii Sports and from what I can say, it's AWESOME!!!!!. New features such as using the Wii MotionPlus and Wuhu Island which tbh I think it's from Wii Fit as well. New sports like Wakeboarding and Table Tennis and an upgraded Bowling Alley. All of them will keep you going for hours. I never played such an amazing sports game. Wii Sports Resort deserves a 10 from me Expand

At first I wasn't sure about their implementation of the sword play, but after spending some time playing it, it now makes perfect sense. Pick up this game you won't be disappointed, the wii motion plus is a blast. Expand

    At first there seems like a lot to do in this game, but after a few play through's you realize that you keep coming back to only one or twoAt first there seems like a lot to do in this game, but after a few play through's you realize that you keep coming back to only one or two games you really like. I was really disappointed with how little archery levels there was to play since its the most enjoyable part. I could imagine a whole Zelda style adventure game based around the swordplay and archery mechanic. Slicing and dicing is very satisfying, hence I think why games like Fruit Ninja on iphone sell so well. Simple satisfaction. Expand

    If you have a large family, you will have long hours of fun. If you have not, you too little time.

    Not bad, but there are a few aspects of the game that aren't preferable.

    i never actually could get into the game and even if i did there are only a couple of levels to each sport and you can beat them all prettyi never actually could get into the game and even if i did there are only a couple of levels to each sport and you can beat them all pretty quickly and they just begin to get repetitive and i think it is a good idea but they should have added more levels to each sport Expand
