IGN UK: Wii Sports Resort Review

Frankly, Nintendo's original Wii Sports deserves a bit more love. Sure, it might be as shallow as a button in a puddle but, dammit, it's fun. Admittedly, it defies all conventional videogame criticism with its limited game roster, stunted solo appeal and lo-fi presentation but, ultimately, you can't ignore the 10 bazillion punters who picked up a Wii based on the sheer joyfulness of Wii Sports alone.

So, here we are again with Wii Sports Resort – and, just like its predecessor, it's a proof of concept, of sorts. As before, the game takes familiar sports, distils them down to their most entertaining parts and pairs them up with intuitive, accessible motion controls. Only this time the focus is on highlighting the boost in precision and responsiveness afforded by Nintendo's latest peripheral, Wii Motion Plus. Of course, the majority of the population probably doesn't give two hoots about the new technology – all they want to know is how this sequel shapes up. Good news then, because Wii Sports Resort is a hugely expanded, endlessly more entertaining game all round. (Wii, Wii Sports Resort) 8.9/10
