Keeping up with the technology:
The Nintendo Wii Sports Resort is a collection of twelve very creative and attractive games with very good graphics. All these twelve games are related to either of outdoor and indoor games and sports. A few of the games are also seen on its predecessor, the Nintendo Wii Sports. Some very new and exciting games are also added and the whole gaming experience is altered and taken to a whole new level. The developments in this edition include the use of motion sensing technology in almost all the games. This, according to Nintendo, gives an immersive experience to the users as they involve in the game completely while playing, rather than just relax on the couch with the joysticks in hand. The Wii Sports Resort also takes full advantage of the Wii Remote and the Nunchuk.
Thanks to the developers at Nintendo, the players in the games also look better and more lifelike, rather than being mere lifeless images. The movements of the players, the scenarios, and the graphics are very good and also provoke interest among all kinds and ages of people. They hence never bore you even after playing for scores of times. Older people no more feel silly while playing such games. The accuracy of the players and their games is also revamped and made a lot better and now you can expect better results when playing such cool games.
The designers of the game of Wii Sports Resort have decided that the games will be played in a resort environment and hence they thought that it would provide some relaxation to the players too, apart from being pleasing to the eye. The whole scenario is set in a sort of beach resort on an archipelago which is known as the Wuhu Island, a fictitious name. There are twelve different sports that are available for you to play. Most of the sports need the use of the Wii Remote and the Nunchuk. The games and the way they are played resemble reality and hence the Wii Sports Resort video game has of late become quite famous.
Let us now have an elaborated discussion regarding each and every game that is featured on the Nintendo Wii Sports Resort gaming console. As discussed earlier, there are twelve games in all. Here is an in depth analysis of the twelve game package, one game by one.
The Swordplay continues to be one of the top rated games of the Wii edition and is also considered as one of the most followed games by Wii’s fanatics. Right from the point of discovery of the Wii Remote, people wanted to play a real simulation of one on one swordplay game. And it has taken quite a long time for their dream to come true. The designers are Nintendo were finally able to come up with a wondrous swordplay experience with all the new graphics and visual experiences added to it. And with the motion plus feature one can see some flawless performances by the players on the screen. The movements and fight modes are revamped a little and you can hence see better performances. The sound effects are pretty awesome and when the swords strike each other, that is, when you feel like you are in a battle field. One will be able to play as one of the Mii characters. The game can be played in different modes like Duel, Speed Slice, or Showdown.
Duel is a fight between two players. It can be played either by one or by two persons. You can either fight against each other or one person can challenge the computer for a duel. The fights normally take place on a circular platform, and one wins by hitting the opponent into the water that surrounds the platform. There are three rounds with time limits and the best of three will be elected as the winner. If no one wins even after the third round, then there is the sudden death match, will be played on a much smaller platform. Speed slice mode is all about cutting objects in front of you with accuracy and also into the right proportions as shown in the computer. Eighteen types of objects are ready to get cut for you. And then there is showdown which is a single player game. Here, the player will be attacked by rival Miis. One needs to clear all of them to win the round. Overall, the game is pretty awesome and it surely provides some recreation.
Wakeboarding is another game that looks pretty lifelike. The style of gaming is also pretty close to reality. One will need to hold down the Wii Remote on its side as if it were a rope which is connected to the boat. You need to pull some amazing tricks off the player in order to score lots of points. You can jump off the wooden ramps positioned at random places as you follow the boat which is ahead of the player. Jumping higher gains you some good increase in the points. You can also earn some serious points by shaking the remote when the player is in the air after the jump. This makes the player do some funny stunts and hence earns you points. But the thing to remember is that one needs to land flat. Or else, no points will be awarded either for the jump or for the stunts. As you go into tougher levels of difficulty, you will see the rope getting intertwined or the ramps steeper. Overall, it is a fun provided game for both kids and adults.
Frisbee is quite similar to the far famed game, Frolf. Here, there are two different modes of game play. In one of the modes, one must toss their disc so that the puppy dog can catch it, and bring it back to you. The farther you throw and the more your dog catches the discs, the more the points will be. But there is a better choice for you if you feel this is too childish for a game to be played. Known as the full game mode, it is an eighteen hole game of Frisbee golf. This game is way simpler and much more interesting than the conventional game of golf. Instead of hitting golf balls into holes, you will need to throw the Frisbee into one of the given eighteen circles. And there comes you dog again. If the Frisbee is about to fall exactly in the circle, the dig catches it. The farther the circle in which the Frisbee falls, the greater the points you will earn. Needless to say that the addition of motion plus has really pumped up the game and the graphic performance.
Archery is one of the first few games developed for the Nintendo Wii Sports Resort Game Console and is also seen on the Wii Sports video game. Playing the game of archery on the Wii Sports Resort console could be fun and entertaining. Of course, this is also more interesting than the traditional form of archery. All you need to do is aim at the spots with the help of the Wii Remote and then pull back the string with the help of the Nunchuck. The greater you press the Nunchuck, the faster and farther the arrow travels. One your finger is released, the bow will be released and the arrow is shot towards the aim. The goal of the game is obviously to hit the centre of the target, just like in the traditional game of archery. The closer your hit is to the target, the better you will score. And it is worth noting that this game uses both the controllers and therefore one will need to get used to it and it takes some time before one could play quite effectively, with full control over the game. The hands also must be kept completely still until the bow is released. Otherwise, the target is missed by way too much. This may hence help in developing your concentration levels, according to Nintendo. If you play the further levels, the speed of the wind and some other conditions will be taken into consideration. The game also involves hitting a lot of food items and it could be really entertaining if one gets involved into the game completely.
Though there are some high end games of Basketball in the market which have some stunning graphic performances, the cuteness in the game of basketball seen on the Wii Sports Resort makes it very special. But the game is not strange here. There are similar modes of play when it comes to basketball. There are two different modes of play in the form of three pointer shoot out, and pickup game. The former can be played by as many as four players while the latter can be played by two players at the most. But the mode of winning is the same. The player who ends up with the most points at the end of the round is declared as the winner of the game. Each and every round is time bound. Pickup Game is a three on three basketball game, while the three pointer shoot out allows you to shoot the ball up into the basket using the Wii Remote. The player has to only shoot, steal, pass, and block and the rest of movements are looked after by the computer itself. The graphics are fantastic, thanks to motion plus.
If you are aware of the game of Tennis which featured on the Wii Sports video game, and also the game of table tennis title seen on the Wii Play video game, this game will not strange to you under any circumstances. The players on the screen will be automatically moved toward the ping pong ball, but the player must hit the ball using the controllers on the Wii Remote. This is really very nice to play and since the graphics are good, you will feel good when playing. The scenario resembles a pool which surrounds the table where the game is played. This is done in order to restore the feeling of a resort. Since the rest of the games are played in a sort of resort background, table tennis also follows suit. Anyways, it is something new but it did work well in the end.
Though the game of Golf was already there in the original Wii Sports video game, the one which is seen on the Wii Sports Resort video game is made even better with the help of motion plus and some other features. Some new game modes and features are added so that it attracts a greater multitude of people. In addition to this, the game also offers more strategy options and also more game courses. There are twelve holes in all, out of which three are straight from the Wii Sports, and the remaining nine of them are introduced in the new game seen on the Resort version. Playing golf on the Resort is pretty easy. You need to some simple gestures for hitting the ball. All you got to do is imagine that the Wii Remote is your club and then swing the remote. The ball will automatically be hit in the game. The harder you swing, the farther the ball travels. That is how simple it is. The angle of the club can also be changed by changing the angle of the Wii Remote. Players can also practice the swinging before they actually hit, just like in reality. As many as four players can play the game of golf, one after the other.
Yes, Nintendo has finally included the game of Bowling. Of course it was already there on the original edition of the Wii Sports, but a few changes are made as far the graphics and the motion flow are concerned. And then when it comes to the bowling mode, it is after all similar to that of the game which was featured in Wii Sports. But hey, there is a lot of improvement regarding the precision. The accuracy is up scaled to meet the current improvements in technology. The locked games see in the original version, which can be unlocked, are also seen in this version, but the difference is that they already come unlocked. There are also slight changes to the game modes. For example the 100 pin mode is altered so that you can play multiple games until you earn a total of 3000 points. In the end, it is a cool game to hang out with and it entertains you completely.
Here is another game that needs the cooperation of both the Wii Remote and Nunchuck. Now you need to hold them both imagining that you were grasping the handles of a Jet Ski. The motions are the same and you move your hands as you would do to move on a real jet ski. The main aim one needs to achieve in the game is that the player will need to get through the goals before time runs out. This is also one of those few games on the Resort, which need the use of Nunchuck. The two controllers must be tilted in way which is corresponding to the direction the player in game needs to go. This game will entertain the kids, in particular and since the motion plus feature works really well, the graphics end up being top notch.
Canoeing is always fun, be it in reality or in the game. Now when it comes to the game of Canoeing on the Resort video game, Wii Remote is used as the paddle which the player holds. There are two different modes, namely VS and Speed Challenge. The Speed Challenge mode is a cooperative game which can be played by as many as four players. If there are multiple players playing the game, then all Miis will be in the same canoe and each player has to complement the movements of the other players so that they move speeder. If the movement is random, the canoe moves sslowly and a particular direction will not be maintained. All of them need to reach the finish line within the given time and points will be awarded accordingly. There will be lots of obstacles coming in your way and you will need to encounter them properly to reach the goal. Now coming to the VS mode, it is a group event where there will be two groups competing against each other. The rules and the scenarios are the same. There is no need to collect either stamps, points or any items. This game is purely a canoe race and hence is really a cool game.
Yeah, there is cycling too. In this game of cycling, you will be matched against thirty other passionate animated cyclists who are ready to win over you. The cycle race will be around an island. Since the player needs to cycle, you need to move the Wii Remote and the Nunchuck up and down, in a manner that simulates pedaling. Change in the direction of the Wii Remote will lead to change in direction. The player also gets tired when you move the remote too fast. In a three level mode, you will be matched against 50 players and the race will be even tougher, even though the conditions remain the same almost throughout the course.
Well, we are not going to tire you much as we are now nearing the end of the games list. The last and final game seen on the Nintendo Wii Resort is known as Air sports. The Air Sports game is comprised of a lot of sports which are played above the ground. Games like Skydiving, Flyover, and Dogfight are very promising on the look and they are also pretty cool to play. All the three games take the assistance of Motion plus and hence are very good when it comes to the graphics part of the game. Again, the game play is same. One needs to wave and move the Wii Remote in the air as if they are holding the equipment and thereby the characters in the game follow suit.
Hence, all the games mentioned above are designed to provide you some serious entertainment whenever you need. Especially designed for the kids, these games are not only for entertainment, but they are also reported to provide fitness to the users since all the games involve the movement of hands and body. Hence, this is a good sign for all because there is no one under the sun who does not want to stay fit.
Though there are many games for the Wii, there is no better collection in the world than the Wii Sports Resort. You cannot get a 12 game package anywhere else for the same cost the Sports Resort bears. There are also a lot of improvements made, when compared to its predecessor, the Wii Sports video game. It would be entertaining, not only to the children, but to people of all ages. Hence, everyone who owns a Wii is advised to purchase the Wii Sports Resort.
