My favorite Wii game,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wii Sports Resort (Video Game)
Out of all the games I own for the Wii, this is my favorite. I've seen this game being sold in 3 ways. Just the game CD (this one), The retail box version that comes with the documentation, and the game with Wii MotionPlus adapters bundled. If you're trying to decide which version to buy this is what I think. If all you need is the game get this one without the documentation and retail box. Trust me, you don't need the documentation or the box so why pay more for it? The only thing you need to know is that you need a Wii MotionPlus adapter for your controllers to play Wii Sports Resort. MotionPlus makes the controllers more sensitive and accurate and Sports Resort doesn't work well with out it. If you need both the game and the MotionPlus adapters, sometimes you can find a bundle that includes MotionPlus and Wii Sports Resort for less than buying them separately. Most likely, it's going to cost you less to buy the game without the documentation and the MotionPlus adapters separately.
As for the game, my dad at 69 years old has always said video games are stupid and thought it was a waste of everyone's time to play them. That was until he saw Wii Sports Resort. He used to bowl on a couple of leagues so we got him to try the bowling (which is way better the Wii Sports Bowling by the way). I think he couldn't resist wanting to take a shot at the 100 pin bowling variation. That hooked him and he went out and bought a Wii the next day just so he could play Sports Resort. The whole family was stunned that my dad was buying a Wii, nobody could believe it. It was Wii Sports Resort that got him hooked though. I can't give the game a higher recommendation than that! This game is a lot of fun either solo or better yet with a group.

Thanks for the tip on which game version/set to buy....no real details on the "booklet/documentation" on the other site/bundle so now I know this/the "game only" version is the one for me....I can put the savings towards another game :)

Thank you! I was trying to figure out what the differences were in the 3 listings. This is the one I need. I appreciate your review!
