This review is from: Wii MotionPlus (Accessory)
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.
+++ Increased controller sensitivity and responsiveness
+++ Comes with a new silicone sleeve for your controller
+++ Gives the Wii Remote a heavier, more solid feel.
--- 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.

actually the games that use them like sports resort and tiger woods, have a motionplus that comes free in the pack. The only one that doesn't have one free is the grand slam tennis. It's the same price as the other new games that include the free motionplus though. I am not sure why they didn't include one with it.

Actually, the Tiger Woods bundle is $10 more than the game alone.

yesterday all three new games were the same price even though one didn't include the wii motionplus. At least on Amazon. I compared them all. Could have changed.

At the time that I purchased the Tiger Woods 2010 pack, it was $10 more expensive than the game alone, resulting in a $10 savings overall. I think the savings will vary from retailer to retailer.
