If you haven’t been put off Nintendo on account of their shameless money spinning, and are still happy to fork out the cash for all these new Wii accessories, then you might like to know that Wii Sports Resort and Motion Plus are currently going for £29.95 from Shopto. Although this package has taken a long time to sink below £30, this is the cheapest deal on offer.
Sequel to the legendary Wii Sports – probably the best game on the Nintendo Wii in my opinion - Sports Resort comes packed with an extensive range of sporting activities. Whilst old favourites such as golf and bowling return, albeit with a few improvements, Sports Resort includes cycling, sword fighting, canoeing, jogging, archery, table tennis and air sports – to name a few. Of course some are a bit of a let down, particularly the canoeing which really wasn’t my cup of tea, although watching one of your friends struggling with a virtual oar from behind the TV is hilarious. Archery had to be my favourite as it’s so satisfying when you hit that bull’s eye, although your accuracy really starts to deteriorate after a few beers.
The only annoying thing about this deal is that Sports Resort is definitely not a single player game. To get full enjoyment out of this title you really need two controllers which means you’re looking at an expensive investment to get yourself an additional remote with Motion Plus. Of course, the old Wii Remote doesn't work with Sports Resort unless it's got Motion Plus support, meaning Nintendo are making a very cheeky profit out of all these accessories. To be quite honest, I am a bit of a Motion Plus sceptic – I’d be interested to know if anyone else struggles to see any significant difference between Motion Plus and the old Wii Remote…?
