5.0 out of 5 stars A great game overall July 26, 2009
Edition:With Wii Motion Plus
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I recently purchased Wii Sports Resort along with the included Wii Motion Plus, and it has been an excellent game so far. Included are 12 games, 10 of which are new and two of which are updates to the classic Wii Sports games- golf and bowling.

Starting with the updates, I feel that Wii Motion Plus adds a lot to the gameplay for the golf game. More sensitive controls make it far more challenging endeavor, adding somewhat to the realism of the game. Also, I find that it is a lot more enjoyable to swing the club in this game than it was in the original. In bowling, it is much easier to add a spin to the ball. Of the additions, I would say that archery and swordplay are standouts, and I wouldn't be surprised if they make it into other Nintendo releases (i.e. Zelda). The game captures the illusion of actually playing with swords or a bow-and-arrow really well. I also really enjoyed most of the water sports, especially power cruising, which reminded me of Wave Race. Some of the sports, on the other hand, are less satisfying, such as cycling, since pedaling with your arms does not feel natural.

The Wii has seen a lot of "waggle-fests" released, and the nice thing about including Wii Motion Plus is that it really improves the motion-sensing fidelity of the Wiimote. I hope more games use this accessory in the future. For some of the multiplayer events, you may need to purchase additional copies of Wii Motion Plus (or get it bundled with another game), while others simply allow you to pass one Wii remote around. The graphics of the game are simple and colorful, and the game features nice water effects.

However, here are a few aspects of the game that I wish were better.

Edition:With Wii Motion Plus
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Wii Sports Resort, which was released in stores this past Sunday, 7/26, is a delightful spin on the Wii Sports favorite. There are 12 fun activities in this game and it comes with the special attachment, Wii Motion Plus, which you snap into the bottom of the Wii-mote for a better playing experience.

The Wii Motion Plus sensor is better at picking up your subtlest movements than the Wii-mote by itself. This makes for less frustration and easier game-play. With longer use though, the Wii Motion Plus sensor may lose calibration and won't be as sensitive to your movements. There is an easy fix, though. All you have to do is pause the game and set your Wii-mote down on a flat surface for it to re-calibrate. This shouldn't take much longer than five seconds to right itself. The more sensitive sensor works great in games like Bowling, (which is back in this game in an updated version), because you can get a better spin on your throw. However, it can also work against you in games like Golf, (which is also back and updated), since you actually have to swing straight and even, like a real golf club, or you will have a serious angle to your strike. No more flicks of the wrist in this golf game!

The game opens with an adorable, interactive sky-diving movie where you meet up with all of your past Miis. Once you get to the main menu, you will see the plethora of games that lie before you, however not everything is unlocked yet. You have to earn certain scores to unlock different modes of certain games. This is akin to Wii Sports' Training section, where each sport had three different modes you could try out. Below is a brief synopsis of the mini-games included in Wii Sports Resort.

Cycling--this can get a bit frustrating in two person mode.

4.0 out of 5 stars Variety and Fun July 30, 2009
By J.M.
Edition:With Wii Motion Plus
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Overall this game is definately worth it. I would have payed the full 50 dollars if it was sold alone, but the addition of the Motion Plus is a great deal. You can use it with other games that are already out such as Tiger Woods, or for upcoming games like Red Steel 2 and possibly the next Zelda. Let me give you a reveiw of each game.

Swordfighting- This activity is easily the best. The controls are great and you actually have to use stragey to beat your opponents, something that was unheard of in the first version. You press B to block. When you block your opponents swings, that gives you an oppurtunity to strike. It's very realistic and fun. There is also speed slice mode and showdown mode. Speed slice is when you have to slice things a certain way before your opponent. It got very intense. Showdown is when you fight through an army of Miis. It's fun getting combos.

Wakeboarding- This is one of my favorites as well. Catching big air and landing tricks was a blast. The controls were very responsive. At first it is simple, but once you unlock the harder difficulties it becomes more complex. You have to dodge obstacles and stuff.

Frisbee- This looks simple, but it was pretty hard.I could never get the frisbee to go where I wanted it too, even after going through the tutorial multiple times. I'm even good at frisbee in real life. There's a large learning curve to this game. There's also frisbee golf.

Archery- This was surprisingly a great game. It is slow paced, but it showed just how precise the Motion Plus can be. I love the feeling of accomplishment I get when I almost get a bull's eye. It requires focus and is a fun challenge. The controls are really tight.

Basketball- One of my least favorites.
