    Most of the mini-games are surprisingly skill-based, and even Wii Sports haters should find something to enjoy. I definitely did.
  2. With two or more players, the sequel is, once again, a compulsive riot. Played alone, however, some of its pieces seem sweet, but a little empty.
  3. Wii Sports Resort fits into the rotation of party games, but it has the breezy weakness of being lost in the shuffle.
  4. Sports Resort is controlling, and even solemn, about just how much fun you should be having with it. And that’s a development that should chill every Wii owner to the bone.
  5. A fun but shallow mini-game collection, whose hobbled simulations still make good use of the MotionPlus.

    Motion Plus tech demo lacks the depth of the real game. Non-gamers loves this though, and you can have a lot of fun with it, if your friends are stupid, drunk or both. [July 2009]
  7. I strongly suspect people will pick up Wii Sports Resort on name recognition alone, and be mystified by the odd white attachment inside. If enough WMPs are sold, and enough developers pay attention, it may just work.

    Set of minigames takes full advantage of the enhanced abilities you get with the new Motion Plus controller. Graphics are still a bit lame but a wide range of sports and accessibility will satisfy every kind of casual gamer. [Sept 2009]
  9. Wii Sports Resort is a fantastic showpiece for MotionPlus, and the one thing that Gamestyle takes away from its time with the game is the possibility of what it could lead to.
  10. The Wii Sports along this becomes almost a demo. The number of modes and games available is great. It is spectacular to put the capabilities of the Wii Motion Plus in test and improve the control of movements of the Wii, given that we have a fun game here.
  11. Wii Sports Resort is a mixed bag when it comes to value for money. If you already own a number of Wiimotes this will give you a really entertaining experience with friends and family. Most of the new minigames are really entertaining and the revamped ones have been greatly improved. The Wii Motion Plus does improve the overall feeling a lot, but since it remedies past shortcomings that's more of a necessity than a strength. As a whole this is definitely not entertaining enough to warrant multiple purchases to get the Wii Motion Plus but if you already own the controls you'll find a lot to like here.
  12. 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.

    For Wii Sports diehards, Wii Sports Resort will be worth a look, but for the rest of us – especially those who’ve thrashed Bowling to death already, this is a patchy offering more notable for its missed opportunities than its successes.

    This is a great game! I honestly don't know anyone with a Wii that doesn't have this game. The graphics are good for the Wii. The Sports areThis is a great game! I honestly don't know anyone with a Wii that doesn't have this game. The graphics are good for the Wii. The Sports are frigging awesome, especially Bowling, Golf, Frisbee, Archery, and Basketball. The Miis option or getting to play as your Mii is awesome. The controls are just right, and good. This also requires a Wii Motion Plus to play and is a great tech-demo unlike the crappy Ninjabread Man, this game is a million times better. Wii Sports Resort is a VERY great game and I would recommend you get it before prices go up. Full Review »

    The game has more sports than the original, first of all. But, a few aren't filling up to their potential. Like the Frisbee games. TheThe game has more sports than the original, first of all. But, a few aren't filling up to their potential. Like the Frisbee games. The controller can be unresponsive in a few sports, but the game is AWESOME anyhow!! An extremely fun and addictive game that comes with your newly purchased Wii, with hours of fun and nail-biting gameplay! Full Review »
