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.

    Wii Sports Resort is obviously a better and more in depth experience than Wii Sports. Swordplay is probably the game that best shows the Wii Sports Resort is obviously a better and more in depth experience than Wii Sports. Swordplay is probably the game that best shows the capabilities of WiiMotionPlus and is probably the best overall game of the bunch. Archery is the second best game and also shows MotionPlus's capabilities very well. Table Tennis and Basketball are my two other favorites simply because they are very addicting. You can't really say that any of the games are bad it's just that some are clearly better than others. Overall, it is a very fun game that shows the incredible precision of WiiMotionPlus and anyone who wants to have alot of fun should for sure buy this game. Expand

An extremely fun and addictive game that comes with your newly purchased Wii, with hours of fun and nail-biting gameplay! Expand

Wii Sports Resort is a multiplayer dream come true. The best mini game compilation on Wii. There are games within this one that you will play until your arm is in pain and there are the lackluster ones you will probably never play again. Yet there is a game here for anybody who wants to use a Wii Remote to it's full power. Expand
