Wii Sports Resort Detailed Review

Wii Sports Resort is the highly anticipated sequel to the original Wii Sports that came bundled with the Nintendo Wii. Like it’s predecessor, Wii Sports Resort contains a variety of sports games. This new edition has Sword Play, Wake Boarding, Frisbee, Archery, Basketball, Table Tennis, Golf, Bowling, Power Cruising, Canoeing, Cycling, and Air Sports. All but Bowling and Golf are new to the Wii Sports package.

Wii Sports Resort is also the first launch of the Wii Motion Plus. The Wii Motion Plus is an-add on attachment that uses a dual-axis angular rate sensor which can calculate rotational motion. This is a simple attachment that snaps into the bottom the Wii remote. One Wii Motion Plus attachment is needed for each controller. The original release of Wii Sports Resort came with one Wii Motion Plus attachment, but a later release offered a version with two. With the Wii Motion Plus game motion control is improved greatly. Now the Wii remote catches the slightest movement in any direction.

This game is a great multi-player game. It makes a great game for family and friends. Most games you can play with at least two players at once and some games you can play up to four players. There are a few sports that you can only play by yourself like Showdown, Sky diving, and Island Flyover.

The game takes place at a sports resort at Wuhu Island. Each of the sporting events are scattered all around the island. As soon as you start the game up you are literally dropped off onto the Island by a plane with a team of sky divers giving you glimpse of the sky diving game available in Air Sports.

Now lets get into the details of the game. I’m going to start with my personal favorite, Table Tennis (Ping Pong).

Table Tennis:

If you loved Tennis in the original Wii Sports game, then you are going to love Table Tennis. I myself even enjoy it more than Tennis. Now, this is nothing like the Table Tennis is Wii Play, this is a whole lot better. The game is a match to 6 points where you need to win by two points (a match to ten can be played by holding down the 2 button when choosing your Mii). To serve you toss the Wii remote up 먹튀검증토토 or press A, then swing the remote either forward hand or backhand to serve. What makes this game great is the control you have over the game. You can do a normal hit by swinging directly forward, do a top spin by flipping your wrist forward while you swing, and you can chop/cut by swinging the remote in a downward motion. I must say the control is quite amazing. Rallies can get quite long as you reach the advanced levels and you will have to use a lot of spin to beat the champion level Mii’s. Just like in Tennis the Mii’s make all kinds of diving saves which make for great rallies. Use strategies such as hitting the balls to the corners to make them pop the ball up for an easy slam, but watch out in the later rounds they make lots of crazy returns (good luck beating Lucia). Another little surprise is the celebrity Mii’s that make their cameo appearances on the stands and even as opponents. I’ve had to face Ozzie Osborn, Michael Jackson, and Keith Richards just to name a few.

Besides the regular Table Tennis game there is the Return Challenge. In this mode, like in Tennis, a trainer serves you balls constantly until you miss. Along the way aluminum cans will pop up on the table as targets. Each time you hit a can your score raises up. This mode helps in fine tuning your aiming skills.
