Shoulda looked closer. This game rental doesn't come with wii motion plus. Not surprise. What I didn't see before renting was that it REQUIRES the motion plus controller. Since this is the only game that uses it yet, this game would be the only reason you would have said controller.
Even more shocking is that buying the game won't give you the controller. For once, the game is actually cheaper to buy at full retail considering the controllers $25 price tag
So why are they renting it? or even selling it?
Game sounds like it will be a lot of fun, but I can't play it. Returning it today (got it yesterday).
Here is what I AM gonna do though. In a few months I will buy the $25 controller, then rent this game again to try it out, and if I like it, buy it from the store to get my second controller for it and the game.
The first reason almost anyone looks at this game is the Wii motionplus. So let’s begin with that. The control is much more accurate with it. Your character will make the same poses you do however it will not match your movements. The refresh rate is insufficient to completely duplicate your actions, so while the sword fighting is fun it is not fencing, and it seems like it can never be.
As far as the game itself, it is fun. If you enjoyed the original Wii sports you will enjoy this. It is not an intense journey into, well, anything. But, it is a fun and relaxing game. Some of the games are updates to the old ones (such as bowling) and some are new (like sword fighting). If you are looking for a casual Wii game to play by yourself or with a friend this will defiantly fit.
We just got this game after anticipating it for several months. I was hoping for a huge range of events with Wii Sports s[special touch to each one, and that is exactly what I got! This game is soooo fun!! It comes with twelve, count 'em, twelve brand new sports plus improved versions of bowling and golf. All events are very fun and addicting. My favorites are sword-fighting, archery, wake boarding, and the airplane flying.
Pros: Hugely awesome selection of fun and addictive events, improved graphics and the island is awesome. Wii MotionPlus is very cool addition to Wii universe.
Cons: Not all events take advantage of MotionPlus.
This is a must own for every Wii owner, you won't be disappointed.
