Review: Wii Sports Resort

tThe Wii is legendary for bad games. However, most of the first party stuff is pretty good. Wii Sports Resort is no exception.

This game took the best parts of Wii Sports and Wii Play and combined them into a simple yet fun, family game that surpasses both.

7.5 out of 10

Loaded with a ton of different types of games, it will will keep your interest. Crack out on one game ( I was hooked on the island flyover at first) then move on to another little gem, like wake boarding, jet-skiing, archery or Frisbee golf. There's a handful of weak ones but most are pretty solid.

Like it's predecessor, resort perfectly utilizes the Wii greatest assets, the motion controller.

Island Flyover
Collect over 80 points of interest and a
few hundred balloons in 3 different times of day

My only beef with it is really is with the additional sensor unit required to play. One comes with the game however, you have to buy a 2nd one @ $20 to play 1 on 1 games. (Fortunately there's only a few). Also, the extra length is annoying in other applications like the virtual console.

Over all it's a solid title. Get this one and you'll be reminded of why you fell in love with the Wii in the first place.
