So, you’re probably wondering I wanted to tell you about this, aren’t you? Well, keep reading and you’ll find out…
One special day last year, I woke up unusually early - it was even still dark outside. I just couldn’t wait to get downstairs and go into the living room, but I couldn’t - not just yet anyway. It’s something we always do in my family, we must all go downstairs at the same time, together. Not every morning! Just on this particular special day, so I called my mum and dad - my two younger sisters were already up, practically buzzing with excitement at the top of the stairs - and together we all walked, or rather sprinted into the living room.
That special day of course, was Christmas day! Woohay!
I love surprises, don’t you? Not knowing that something’s going to happen and then it does (as long as it’s a good thing!), or not knowing what your Christmas presents are going to be (as long as you trust the person who’s buying it, of course!) its all just so exciting! This is why I’d asked all my grandparents for surprises that year. That and also because I don’t like asking for certain things, it seems cheeky to do that.
I must admit, I was a little bit wary about asking for surprises. It’s not that I don’t like aged 9 flowery t-shirts from Marks and Spencer or anything (this is the kind of thing they normally get me) …
We soon realised that to get the maximum amount of fun out of our Wii, we were going to need to get some games to play on it!!
We’ve got quite a lot of games for it now, such as ‘Wii Play’ and ‘Wii Sports’ but none are as good as our most recently bought ‘’’Wii Sports Resort’’’, which is also known as Wii Sports 2.
I have played on it LOADS since we bought it, all the family has been glued to it. When my friends came round we had a go on it then, and even my gran has played on it (unsuccessfully I might add!). So, basically the Sports Resort is great for all ages and all kinds of people. I'm sure theres a game on this for everyone!
The actual game is brilliant! It’s exactly what it says in the name - a sports resort but on the Wii. How you use the game is, you hold the motion plus remote in your hands and whenever you move your hands, the exact movement is mimicked by your Mii on the screen! I have always thought this is really cool, so much better than the PlayStations where you have to press buttons - on this you don’t even have to press any buttons to get it to work and make your Mii move!
The game is certificated 7+
When you first put the game into your Nintendo Wii, with all games you are asked to install the game so that the computer can remember it so next time it will just skip straight into the main menu without a long loading wait.There is also a short tutorial which comes up. I think you can skip this but even though you may find it a little boring, it’s probably best just to watch it so you get an idea of what the games all about.
There is also a mini game in this one similar to one from Wii Play which is Table Tennis but between the two games I’d say Sports Resort is the best one!I always think that the Nintendo Wii is better than the PlayStations.There are loads of games in the Sports Resort that you can take part in, it is as though you are in a Sports Resort yourself and you can walk around this virtual place and take part in any of the mini games you want. Below I have written about each individual mini game in the Wii Sports Resort and scored them out of five in how much I enjoy playing on them.
For this game you need two parts of the remote, one which already comes with the game. I found this game quite enjoyable but it does get a little bit boring after a while, well I think it does anyway.
‘’’Jet Ski Game’’’
In this game you are in a jet ski on the sea, and you have to drive through these goals in the water, you pick up points as you go through them.
As both my dad and my littlest sister enjoy this game, I think this game is good for all ages and would recommend it to anyone.In my experience with playing the game I find it fun and enjoyable, and would rate it 4/5.
Another feature from this game is there is a really cute little dog which runs out to catch the Frisbee when you throw it.
This is my favourite game off the Wii Sports Resort. I think it is really good fun. Your Mii (for those of you who aren’t familiar with the Nintendo Wii, your Mii is like a little cartoon version of you) throws a Frisbee, exactly how you would if you had a real Frisbee.
Some people might be thinking, ‘so why don’t you just throw a real Frisbee then?!’ but the good thing about this is you can throw a Frisbee as if you really are throwing one, in your own front room, without knocking anything over or smashing your mum’s best vase! So when it is raining and too cold to go outside, you can still play your sports - just inside the house, which is what I do on cold, rainy days!
I think this game is quite girly but I’m sure some boys would enjoy it as well.
This is a really good game to play against your friends and family and everyone gets competitive! I play this one all the time against my sister - I always win, of course!
‘’’Sword fighting game’’’
In this game you have to hold the wii remote out in front of you with both hands - like a sword - and then you whack it around in front of you, just like a sword. This game reminds me a little bit of boxing, which can be found on Wii Sports, because you have to hit out until for example a pencil is chopped, and on Wii Sports in the boxing game you have to punch out in front of you until the punch bag is broken and the next one comes in. You get points for every bag you hit down.
If I was asked to rate this game, I would give it 4/5.
This is another great game which all ages should enjoy. I think this game is alright but not one of my personal favourites, but to be honest I don’t like basketball in real life, either.I would give this game 3/5.
I would give this game 4/5.
I’m sure you can guess what you have to do in this game as well! You have to pull the two remotes apart, I imagine it is like an elastic band and then when I release it, just like a real arrow it flies forward onto the board (and hits bulls eye of course!).
Imagining it is like an elastic band makes it easier for me, this game is quite hard to get a good score on, but none the less a very enjoyable game which I love playing.
Again there are multi-player options on this game, up to four people can play against each other in one game. The winner is obviously the person who has the best score.
This game is also on the Wii Sports, the two versions aren’t much different, the only real difference is of course that this one is played with the motion plus remote which means it is a lot easier to play because of this much more highly sensitive remote control.
I would give this game a 4/5, only lacking in originality (god don’t I sound posh!).
I enjoy playing on this game. Although I have to be honest, I didn’t find this game that much better than it is on Wii Sports, it still is very fun.I would have to give this game 5/5. It’s one of the best games off Wii Sports Resort.‘’’Cycling game’’’
What you have to do is use the motion plus remote like it is the pedals on the bike, and you have to keep rotating it to move the bike. You can choose a course and play against someone else at the same time. A great game, although I found myself not wanting to play any more after I had already played it a few times.I would rate this game as 4/5. It is another one which is good for all ages.
The game is another enjoyable one from the Sports Resort. I would give it 4/5.
How you do this is you use the motion plus remote as an oar and you have to keep pushing it in the water to move forwards. The good thing about this is that up to four people can all play at the same time, if you have enough remotes.
You can probably guess what you have to do, this is hit the ball across the table where either the computer or if you are playing against someone then they will have to hit it back.
Also on the Wii Play, this game is basically the same, which means that it’s really enjoyable and I love playing it! I don’t been to boast, but I am really, really good at this one!
If you have two motion plus remotes you can play against someone else at the same time.I would rate this game as 5/5; it is one of my favourites of them all!
You can play this in multi-player options as with many of the games on the Sports Resort.
‘’’Air sports game’’’
This is another fantastic game. There are options to choose from what you want to do, which are you can either go flying over an island, you can go skydiving (eek!) or you can do this other game where you have to pop balloons on the other player’s aeroplane, all very good fun.
I would rate this game as 5/5 because of the options you can choose from.
The motion plus remote is just as easy to use as the normal Wii remote. In my opinion it increases the excitement in the game, because no one can blame their remote anymore, if they lose in a game!
We bought this amazing, super fun new game from Argos, and I think it was around £50 at the time we bought it. I must admit I think this is very expensive for a game, and the only reason we bought it was because we had some Argos vouchers so it actually worked out quite cheap.I have just checked on the Argos website, and right now it is on offer on Argos.co.uk for £39.99 which I think is still quite expensive for a game.
You can probably also buy the Wii Sports Resort for a cheaper price on sites such as eBay or Amazon, as I always say in my reviews, these are two very good sites for when you are looking for a bargain!I think the game is available in most good game stores in the UK.
It's a brilliant game but being me which is quite tight with money! I just think this game is too overpriced.
If I could find the game for around £20 I would not hesitate in buying it.
