  • Summary: Wii 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 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.
  2. An unashamed definition of its host console; simple, colourful, accessible to all, but with a hidden depth for those who wish to explore it. It’s unlikely to convert many that are lost to the Wii cause, but for those who have already embraced it, a trip to Wuhu Island will be some of the most fun you’ll have all year.

    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. Not all of the sports are winners and having a house full of people is still the best way to get the most enjoyment out of the game, but even with these slight caveats, it's hard not to recommend Wii Sports Resort to gamers of all ages and experience levels.
  5. Wii Sports Resort manages to make us forget about controllers, displays and reality, and makes us play like kids, sensing that we really shot that arrow and we really took down those ten pins at bowling.
  6. Wii Sports Resort is more then a fun collection of sports, which are great to play together. Baseball, swordfight and table tennis are great games, but jet ski is less fun. Wii Motionplus is a great addition, and the game will last for hours if you play it together with friends. Are you a single player type of gamer? Then the game will get boring over time!
  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 game is very underrated and under-appreciated for what a genius casual game it really is. Although 80/100 for critics reviews is normallyThis game is very underrated and under-appreciated for what a genius casual game it really is. Although 80/100 for critics reviews is normally a pretty good average, in this case I would call it underrated.

    The motion controls are as close to perfect as it can get with the Wii motion plus controls. Most of the games are really fun & addictive, and the game itself is timeless. Playing games like bowling with family & friends, will never cease to be fun.

    This is one of the very best games available for Wii, and should definitely be regarded as such. Highly recommended!

My only problem is that it gets a little repetitive, but it's great on both 1 and 2 player. It could have used a few more sports, but anyway the game is really fun, my favorites are water skiing and fruit ninja. (cant remember their names) A must own for Wii owners Expand

    This game was not as good as the first one. Yes it has more sports, yes it has better graphics, but there arn't very many fun games. SwordThis game was not as good as the first one. Yes it has more sports, yes it has better graphics, but there arn't very many fun games. Sword fighting is fun, so is basketball, but pingpong is just minature tennis, for some reason they mest up golf, wake bording is not fun, throwing a frisby is not fun, Archery is pretty fun, Biking sucks, sky diving sucks, flying a plane sucks, bowling is exactly the same as the first one which is good, kyaking sucks, boating sucks. 4 of these games are fun the rest suck. I give it a 7 out of 10 Expand
