Wii MotionPlus

Amazon.com

Simple. Intuitive. Easy to use. Connect the Wii MotionPlus accessory to your Wii Remote controller to increase accuracy and enhance play control on compatible games. Look on the back of Wii Game Disc WiiMotion Plus detailspackaging to see which games are specially designed for use with Wii MotionPlus. Wii MotionPlus contains additional sensors that make the Wii Remote respond to the slightest movement, motion, or twist of the wrist. Wii MotionPlus must be used with a Wii Remote, which is sold separately.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty cool, but has some problems August 1, 2009
By CQCoder

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The motion plus definitely makes the games more fun - I really enjoyed the sword fighting in Wii Resort.

That said, there is one serious issue. When I first fired up WII Resort, I thought it was interesting they kept harping on how to recalibrate the motion plus. Eveytime a game starts. Everytime you move to a new level. If it doesn't feel right recalibrate.

Well the reason for that becomes evident if you play any of the 'intenser' games, ala sword fighting. The controller quickly becomes uncalibrated. This is expecially bad in the horde sword fight levels - it simply starts getting out of sync after 5-10 enemies. I have to recalibrate it every 3-5 minutes.

And before anyone says 'hardware issue' I purchased two of them. I have two remotes. Every combination exhibits this issue - it's highly unlikely both of my motion pluses have a failure.

This is a pretty glaring problem in an otherwise very cool addon - and honestly is extemely disappointing to me as the sword fighting possiblites is where I was most interested in it. I sure hope it's something that can be addressed in the future via a software patch, but I have my doubts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to the Wii gaming experience June 11, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Length: 2:33 Mins
I've only tried the Wii MotionPlus with one game so far, Virtua Tennis 2009 but the MotionPlus enhanced the sensitivity of the Wiimote and made it more responsive when playing this game. It seems to sense the turning and direction or your hand better than the Wiimote alone and I thought it made the Virtua Tennis game more realistic and enjoyable. It gives you that little bit extra to play the game.

I recorded this short video so you can see how it attaches to the Wiimote. As you can see, when it's on you don't even notice that it's there. It isn't big or clunky like some of the add-on's to make the nunchuks wireless that I've seen.

I liked the addition of it with this one game and I'm looking forward to trying other games as they're released.

Update 6/21/09 - I had a chance to try the Wii MotionPlus with a friends new Tiger Woods Golf game and the difference between the game with and without the Wii MotionPlus is pretty amazing, probably even more so than with Virtua Tennis. It's much more fine tuned than last year's game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great accessory June 9, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Wii Motion Plus is a small add-on accessory that plugs into the bottom of the wii remote. The device also comes with a larger silicone sleeve for your Wii remotes, which is nice.

At the time of this writing, I have only used the Motion Plus with one game, Tiger Woods 2010, and I have to say that I'm flat out impressed. If developers can continue to make games that implement this device at least half as proficiently as an early game such as Tiger Woods 2010, I have very high hopes for this product. The device makes a night and day difference in the sensitivity and responsiveness of the motion controls. I really hope more developers keep producing games that utilize this device, because I'm hooked.

PROS:
+++ Increased controller sensitivity and responsiveness
+++ Comes with a new silicone sleeve for your controller
+++ Gives the Wii Remote a heavier, more solid feel.

CONS:
--- Limited number of games that support the device (but this number should hopefully grow)
--- Additional cost. Nintendo officially has the most expensive controller if you count the Wii Remote ($40), Nunchuck ($20), and Motion Plus ($20).

If you want to own a game that requires the Motion Plus, you don't really have a choice and are pretty much forced to buy one of these. If you own a game that has the option of using Motion Plus, I highly recommend that you purchase one of these little gems. If possible, try to get one as part of a pack-in combo since you may save a little bit of money.

1.0 out of 5 stars UGH!!!! RECALIBRATION DRIVING US CRAZY!!!! October 16, 2009
By B.H.
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
We bought the Resort Sports (which we love) and apparently the motion plus is a packaged deal. We got one with the game and bought one separately.

The recalibration on this is driving us crazy. There are some games (wakeboarding) that we (the adults) have to do it pretty often and others that we don't. However, for our 5 year old, she has to recalibrate practically every minute. She gets so frustrated and then doesn't even want to play.

So, we just paid lots of extra bucks for a controller that makes our child (and occassionally us) not want to play the game. Where is the logic in that!!! With the regular Wii Sports golf game she had so much fun - with the new one she can't even play!

We are so frustrated with wii right now!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Price of Power August 11, 2009
By age
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, got one in Wii Sports Resort and bought an extra two for everyone else (eventually getting another one for the last Wii-mote). In case you were wondering, yes, it does come with the longer jacket for the wii-mote. In fact, the Wii motionplus is attached to the longer jacket and it comes with instructions on how to attach it properly. The connection on the Wii motionplus to the wii-mote feels flimsy, but it's supposed to feel that way -- it's NOT broken!

What it does is provide more information to whatever game you're playing about the position of the wii-mote. This enables you to be more in control and play games more realistically. However, very few games support it right now and it saps your batteries twice as fast, but it's generally worth it. Let's just say that if Nintendo comes out with an "improved" Wii MotionPlus in 6 months to a year, I'm going to be riotous, but not surprised.

I suggest you get Wii Charge Station Quad or Wii Charge Station or some rechargeable batteries if you haven't already because the price for power gets even higher with the Wii MotionPlus.
