    Wii Sports Resort


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    The Wii gaming console from Nintendo is known for its highly interactive and fun games. One of its newest titles, Wii Sports Resort, fits right into this characterization. Keep reading for a closer look at this addition to the Wii lineup.

    Wii Sports Resort is an athletics-related game that gives players up to 12 different games to choose from: Swordplay, Wakeboarding, Frisbee, Archery, Basketball, Table Tennis, Golf, Bowling, Power Cruising, Canoeing, Cycling, and Air Sports. Within each of the twelve different games there are different modes as well, so there are plenty of activities to choose from.

    Some activities are more fun than others, so being able to choose from a large number is definitely beneficial. Wii Sports Resort is a game that is definitely more fun with friends than playing alone, as most of the activities offered lack much depth or replay-ability while in single player mode. The multiplayer mode supports up to four players at a time, depending on the actual activity.  

    That said though, it is a great game to have for families to spend some quality time together, or for friends to play during get-togethers, or for those days when you're stuck inside because itís raining outside. The graphics arenít exactly realistic, but it is a Wii title, and its main goal is to let you have fun while at the same time being active and out of your seat. It's definitely no replacement for the gym, but it will get your blood flowing, and the controls are great. Wii Sports Resort currently retails for $49.99.

      

    Before we get into reviewing the game, it must be noted that Wii Sports Resort requires the MotionPlus accessory for the game to work, although the game does come with one such device. For those unfamiliar with it, MotionPlus is an accessory that attaches to the bottom of the Wii remote to increase the accuracy at which on screen movements in the game correspond to your body movements with the control. Think of it as a refinement to the Wii remote to provide as much of a real-time interactive gaming experience as possible.

    Since Wii Sports Resort can handle up to four players at a time, you will need to purchase three additional MotionPlus accessories for the full multiplayer experience. Each MotionPlus accessory retails for about $20, so right there you are looking at an additional $60 investment into the game just to enable multiplayer.

    Itís definitely a smart move by Nintendo to implement this to increase their revenue, but from a gamerís perspective it is a disappointment. If you do take the plunge and decide to purchase the MotionPlus accessories though, at least feel safe knowing that they will be usable with other Wii titles in the future. Also, the accessoryís worth is clearly visible, as it definitely helps add to the realism of the gameplay.
