I don’t own a Wii but I had the opportunity to play Wii Sports Resort for a few hours the other day. This game is a must own for anyone who has a Wii. If you don’t have a Wii, this may be the game that pushes you to buy it. Here are a few reasons why:
Wii MotionPlus Controller: Wii Sports Resort comes with a new controller add-on that snaps onto the Wii controller and adds motion sensitivity. Anyone who played the original Wii Sports knows you could pretty much wave the controller up and down while sitting on the couch. With the new controller, the motion sensitivity is much more accurate. This is most apparent in the ping-pong game, where you can put slice on the ball, or in bowling, where can put spin on it.
Brand New Games: In the original Wii Sports there were only a handful of games to choose from: bowling, tennis, golf, boxing, and baseball. Now there are 12 games (sword play, wakeboarding, frisbee, archery, basketball, table tennis, golf, bowling, power cruising, canoeing, cycling and air sports) offered in the new version, with some of them having multiple variations.
I had a blast playing all the games but there were a few that I had a little more trouble pulling myself away from.
Duel: Duel can be found under swordplay. You faceoff with another person in what can best be described as a combination of Star Wars and American Gladiators. The first person to knock the player off the circle and into the water wins. The winner then gets to laugh at his opponent as he flops into the water.
Frisbee Golf: It’s basically golf with a frisbee. You can choose from a “driver” frisbee, an “iron” Frisbee or a “putter” frisbee depending on how far away you are from the hole. I easily spent the most amount of time playing this one.
Three-point shootout: This is exactly what you would see on the three-point shoot out during the NBA all-star game. You don’t have to worry about accuracy. It’s all about timing. It’s both intense and challenging as you’ll have to be quick to get all your shots off in time. Even if you don’t have a friend around, you’ll come back to this game since you’ll always want to top your high score.
Ratings: 4.5 out of 5. Like Halo for Xbox 360 and Metal Gear Solid for Playstation 3, this is the game that defines a system. All Wii owners must get this game. You’ll instantly become the most popular person among your friends. Don’t be surprised if people start inviting themselves over to your pad.
