Lots of fun games,
This review is from: Wii Sports Resort (Video Game)
"Wii Sports Resort" has twelve games. It utilizes the Wii Motion Plus Accessory to make playing even more precise. Each game features an instructional video that shows you how to play that game. You collect stamps along the way for certain achievements.
Swordplay: there are three games - two two player games and one one player game. In Dual you have a sword fight with another player (either human or against the Wii). The object is to win two rounds. In Speed Slice you play against another player to see who can slice objects the fastest. The first player to get 10 points is the winner. Showdown is a one player game where you fight enemy sword fighters. The game ends when you are either hit three times or you defeat all the enemies in the area. All three games are quick to play and relatively easy to win.
Wakeboarding: up to four players can play this game. iT has three levels: beginner, intermediate, and expert. This game can take a little getting used to in holding the remote correctly and using it to go over the wake but once you get adjusted it is a lot of fun. My favorite part is trying to do some tricks not very easy but a lot of fun when I managed it.
Frisbee has two games: In Frisbee Dog you throw the Frisbee eight times and have a dog try to catch it. In the middle of the game there is an extra challenge to pop balloons. The other game is Frisbee Golf with a choice of three holes, nine holes, or eighteen holes. Both games are fun but I prefer Frisbee Dog. Frisbee Golf seems unnecessary as there is a regular Golf game included in this.
Archery: up to four can play this game. There are three levels - beginner, intermediate, and expert. Using the Wii remote and nunchuk you get 12 shots over four stages to get the highest score possible. This is one of my favorite games as there is quite a bit of skill involved and a great deal of satisfaction from hitting the target.
Basketball has two different games. The three-point contest is a one to four player game that is either competitive or team play. The object is to make as many three-point shots as possible shooting from different sections of the court (the bonus ball is worth double). Pickup game is a one to two player game where you play three on three (you control all the players on your team). Both games are fun but I prefer the three-point contest - mostly because I'm better at it!
Table Tennis: this is a variation of the tennis game on Wii sports. There are two games. Table Tennis is a one to two player game where the first player to get six points wins. Return Challenge is a one to four player game in which you return as many balls as you can for points (extra points for hitting cans that periodically show up on the screen). Both of these games are a lot of fun.
Golf: up to four players can play with a choice of three, nine, or eighteen holes game. This is another game that was in Wii Sports so I'm not sure why it was included in this set of games.
Bowling: there are three games for up to four players. The first game is a standard bowling game; the second is a 100 game where have to knock down 100 pins instead of 10; the third game is spin control where you have to avoid barriers that appear in the game while trying to knock down pins. Of the three I like the 100 pin game the best but this is yet another game that appears in Wii Sports and seems a bit redundant.
Power Cruising: has two games both of which need the Wii remote and nunchuk. Slalom Course is a one to four player game where you ride the waves and tried to get through rings in the best time. It was quite a bit of a learning curve for me in this game but I enjoyed it once I got used to it. VS. is a two player game where you race each other to make it to the goal first. A bit of a disappointment as I am usually the only one playing the Wii.
Canoeing has two games. Speed challenge is a one to four player game where you paddle your canoe and try to make it to the goal before time runs out. VS. is a 2 to 4 player game where you triyto make it past checkpoints before your opponent does - the first to cross five checkpoints wins. I had a high time mastering the control of this game and didn't really like either game.
Cycling has two games. Road Race, using the Wii remote and Nunchuk, is a one to two player game where you race among others to get to the finish line first. VS. is a two player game where you try to reach the finish line first. I find both games to be addicting.
Air Sports has three games. Skydiving is a one player game where you try to hook up with other Mii characters while skydiving and have your picture taken while doing so. Flyover is a one player game where you do a flyover of Wuhu Island trying to collect points along the way. Dogfight is a two player game where you try to pop your opponent's balloons - whoever pops the most balloons wins. Air Sports is my least favorite of all the games and the one I play the least.
There are a couple of games I don't like in Wii Sports Resort but basically it is a great collection of games for the Wii.

I'm confused....When I purchased our Wii a few years ago, it came with the sports and resort games and we had no trouble playing them. Well unfortunately both games seem to have been "misplaced". So the other day a friend let us use her games and now they wont play....saying something about a motion accessories. Why? we didn't need it before.

I have always had to use the Wii Motion Plus accessory with this game. My guess is you need to "sync" your Wii remote with your friend's game.
