Wii Sports Resort :: Wii Game Review

Wii Sports' Frisbee Dog Event
Wii Sports' Frisbee Dog Event

Wii Sports is back with tons of new events to try and some new technology. But is it worth $50? Find out in our review.


The Accessory

Unless you bought Tiger Woods for the Wii last month, this is probably going to be your first game with the Wii's new MotionPlus accessory. It just plugs into the bottom of your Wiimote, and tracks your movements even better than before, it's pretty simple. You'll likely need this for certain games in the future, so getting a MotionPlus for free with this game is pretty helpful. Unfortunately, you'll probably need another one, because this game is so much fun on multiplayer. And each additional MotionPlus accessory costs $20.


The Games

This game is actually even better than Wii Sports. There are tons more sports, and though a few of them are pretty weak, table tennis, archery, and swordplay will just absorb your time if you have a couple of friends over. There's a lot of play-time here, and even against the computer they can all be a lot of fun. Trying to earn the stamps (basically trophies or achievements) is pretty fun, too. The "Island Flyover" mode lets you explore Wuhu Island, which has lots of nice secrets and surprises for single-player.


The Verdict

This is probably a must-own for Wii owners, for both the MotionPlus accessory and the game itself. There's basically nothing better for parties with friends, and there are enough sports in this game that you can get a lot of play out of it alone, too.


Rating: [5 out of 5 joysticks]
Price: $50 ($20 for each extra MotionPlus accessory)
ESRB Rating: E for Everyone
