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, B토토사이트 asketball, 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.
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 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.
This is probably my second favorite sports game. More so for all three of the modes than just the dual mode itself. In Dual mode you have a sword battle with a computer or another player on the top of a circular tower. The point of the match is to knock your opponent off of the tower into the pool below. The best 2 out of 3 wins the match. With sword play you can attack in any direction by swinging your sword from up to down, left to right, or diagonal up or down. You can also block by holding the B button and moving the remote in a defensive position. You must put the remote in the correct blocking position based on the direction the opponent swings. If you make a successful block the opponent will fall back unbalanced allowing you to attack them. In the beginning round you can just go all out offensive and win most of the time, but in the later rounds you must be more tactful and learn how to block.
Speed Slice mode is one of my favorite multi-player modes of this game. In speed slice you will get to slice through all kinds of random objects such as logs, timers, cupcakes, bamboo, oranges, etc. The point of the game is to slice through the object in the direction the arrow points the fastest. A judge will throw up an object at varied speeds and whoever slices through the object in the correct direction first wins a point. The first to 10 points wins the match. This is a great one for family and friends you will spend hours competing against each other to see who has the fastest reactions. Also its fun just slicing something up.
