This weekend I planned on picking up the new Wii Sports Resort game.
I got it last night instead.
And let me just say, it is chock full of the awesome!
Now, I am not a hardcore gamer- I’m casual at best. And through trial and error I have discovered that I totally dislike those “storyline” games.
I just don’t have the patience to play those epic fuckers where you have to build up points and experience and shit and it takes DAYS to play.
Eff that ess.
But the sports games- yeah. Those I like. Short timeframe. Clear goal. Winners and losers.
And Sports Resort has all the cleverness and fun of the original Wii sports, only more sports and more FUNNER!
And the new “motionplus” controllers? Boy howdy they are fun!
I really noticed the difference during ping pong. I used to love to play ping pong, and this wii game mimics the spins and shots I used to do.
Top spin, back spin, slices, curves– I can put English on that damn ball like nobody’s business!
Another gem is the archery game. It is deceptively difficult and highly addictive. You actually mimic holding the bow and release of the arrow.
And the wakeboarding is a blast- doing jumps and tricks for points.
And frisbee dog is just cool. You aim for targets and the dog chases and catches the frisbee for points! It’s hard but adorable!
And the sword fighting? Sheer brilliance! I’m undefeated at it so far.
And there is so much more! Golf, frisbee golf, skydiving, slalom skiing, basketball, bowling, plane dogfights, etc.
If you have a Wii, and like the sports games, I highly recommend picking up a copy!
