Wii Sports Resort (or, OH GOD WHY AM I REVIEWING THIS)
I LIED AGAIN
Wow. I don't even know where to start with this one. It was loaned to me for a week and I played about 20 minutes before heading off to play fallout 3.
So, as you might expect it's a followup to Wii Sports, the game that shipped with the wii to show off the motion tech. This time they've stepped it up a notch by including the Wii Motion Plus, a new addition which fits onto the regular wiimote controller. It basically fancies up the motion control.
And yes, it's a collection of minigames like the previous one. A few of them are fun such as the swordfighting and there's a few that you'll get bored of in ten minutes and never play again, such as the Archery.
Alot of the minigames are multiplayer but the downside is that you'll need extra motion plus addons for each other remote. Kind of sucks.
The visual style is that cheery little mii style as used in wii sports and wii play. There really isn't alot to say.
Audio-wise the game isn't too bad but there's some annoying commentator voice pieces and a few music bits that loop until they rot your brain.
Boredom factor - 5.0
How much I want to play something else - 7.5
How much I wonder what the release date for the next metroid game is - 10
How much fun I could be having playing tiberium wars - 8.0
The game itself - 7.5
This is a joke review because my father insists that I review it. He didn't specify how I did.
I dunno, maybe I'm just not a fan of party games that are nothing but a ton of minigames.
