Hours of fun for the entire family

  • Aug 27, 2009

is an excellent family friendly game. Most games have up to four players but a couple are in two player mode. Make sure to pick up extra Wii MotionPlus for your Wii remotes, since the game only comes with one. The Wii MotionPlus adapter gives you better accuracy and control of your movements. If during game play the remote is not quite acting the way it should be, all you need to do is lay the remote face down on a flat surface for a couple seconds and it recalibrates it.

The games are fun and we can't stop laughing while playing. Let me to tell you that you do get one heck of a workout though. The graphics are good with vivid colors and you still have your other saved Mii's in the audience cheering you on. You may want to consider purchasing Wii Sports Resort Pack which offers 2 Star Sabers, Table Top Racing Stand, Racing Wheel, Jet Ski Handle, and Rubber Grip for a more realistic feel to gameplay.

Since many reviewers and item description have mentioned what games are included, I will give a brief description of my favorites ones. On top of my list is Archery. You use both the nunchuck and remote during gameplay. Holding the remote in your left hand straight up and pulling back with the nunchuck in the other hand like you are really using a bow and arrow. Sounds easy but the game gets progressively harder as you go on. Another one my family loves to play is Swordplay. In Swordplay you use the remote as if you were using a sword. You can even use a block feature by pressing the "B" button. We laugh like crazy when we play this one and you can get into some really extreme battles. I just love to watch the Mii's fall-over the platform in slow motion! Canoeing is another fun one to play. You use the remote like you would use a paddle and try to get around the course avoiding obstacles and try beating your opponent to the finish lines. I love crashing into the other canoe and making them get off course. This game will give you one good workout of your arms so be prepared.

Wii Resort is an welcomed added addition to my collection of Wii games. Anyone will enjoy playing this game from the occasional gamer to the hard-core get in your face type of player. Wuhu Island welcomes anyone. :-)

When the Nintendo Wii launched in late 2006, it instantly became the "hot" thing to get for that Xmas, and it was very very difficult to find in stores for pretty much the next 2 years, and one of the reason behind this massive popularity is a little pack-in game from Nintendo called "Wii Sport", it  basically is a mini-games collection that demonstrate the potential of the Wii controller (nicknamed "Wiimote" by some), it was very easy to get into, even if you …

Wii Sports resort is the sequel to Wii Sports, and it is just as fun if not more fun. The problem is not only that there are repeat games from Wii Sports, but you are also required to have an accessory to the wiimote (the accessory is called the Wii Motion Plus), and you can't play the games without it. There are 12 main sports, and there are 2-3 versions of that sport, so you are basically getting about 25 games. The sports included are:    Swordplay-This is the most active …
