Okay, we purchased the Wii Sports Resort as soon as we could because of all the fun we have with the original Wii Sports. Well, in lots of ways, as much as we love the original, this one is sooooooooooo much more fun! The motion plus makes a big difference, therefore initially it takes a little bit to get used to the "realistic" movements. If you bend your wrist or turn the remote, your shot or hit will do the same. We have had a few Wii Sports Resort game nights just because all our friends want to play it whenever they have time - Monday night will be our next big game night!
* Bowling is even more fun with the Sports Resort - ball release and hooks really do depend on your control - graphics better than the original.
** Archery really, really rocks!!! Who would have ever thought anyone would come up with this? You really must have good aim and breath control; just like the real deal. There are 3 levels; beginner, intermediate and expert. Also, if you are really good ~ there are bonus fruits to shoot at on each level; very difficult indeed!
*** Island flyover is in some ways the very best of it all; you get in your plane and fly over the entire Sports Resort Island of WUHU in order to pop balloons and find markers. With each 10 markers found, you get upgraded options including a 2 seater plane!
**** Basketball is really fun for kids, women and sports fanatic guys too. Very easy to play, but not so easy to score - practice is needed, but worth it!!
***** Wakeboarding competition ~ Really, really, really fun. You have to make jumps and land right; then the judges give you scores - great for crowd play!
****** Speed cruising is really fun as well - you can race in a lagoon, on the beach as well as a couple of other island areas.
Okay, so you get my drift - there are also many other games to play (total of 12), like canooing, biking, frisbie and more. You will not be disappointed with this purchase if you enjoy the Wii already - but be prepared to have friends over more than usual!! Enjoy!!
I rated this game 5 across the board because the graphics are crisp, colorful and fun. The game play is easy to learn, but takes some effort to do well - the way it should be!!
