It's almost undeniable that Nintendo has the original Wii Sports to thank for much of the success its console is having in North America. It was a brilliant move to bundle this sports-focused tech demo with every system – the five sports (well, four…boxing is the pits) show off the motion controls of the Wii remote very well in a simplistic package designed specifically to attract a new kind of gamer. Wii Sports might not have offered the same experience hardcore audiences expect in today's console market, but the pack-in continues to be the driving force behind a system purchase, and in many unfortunate cases, it's the only game Wii owners possess.

Wii Sports Resort is truly an experience like no other, offering truly real sports experiences and incredibly fun multiplayer modes.

Yes, it may well be a tech demonstration of MotionPlus, but on the upside somebody built a game around it for us to have some fun with, and to experience how much WMP really does improve on the original controls.

Wii Sports Resort fits into the rotation of party games, but it has the breezy weakness of being lost in the shuffle.

The fun and charm from the original is back and the improved controls don’t ruin from the experience at all that is to be had with the 12 categories of minigames. In fact, if there’s anything to complain about with the game’s depth, it’s probably the possibility that it might be too much to swallow.

A sports package that's absolutely chock full of sports gaming goodness and enough replay value to keep gamers coming back for more. You might find sports packages that offer up a more in-depth gameplay experience for an individual sport , but you'd be hard pressed to find a package with more variety and fun than the one found in Wii Sports Resort.

The addition of MotionPlus makes Wii Sports Resort more intuitive to play and adds lastability to gameplay. Controls aside, presentation and quantity of content has also been improved. [Sept 2009, p.108]

Wii MotionPlus doesn't disappoint. The tiny, $20 peripheral (you get one free with the game; the rest are sold separately) is everything it's cracked up to be - when placed in the hands of developers who know what they're doing.

Although Wii Sports Resort looks simple, it uses the new Wii MotionPlus technology surprisingly well. Apart from the technological improvements the game contains twelve extensive sports that provides lots of entertainment when playing with company.
