Wii played the other sports pack games and thought that this would be similar only with different games. Boy was I wrong. The motion plus IS REQUIRED, but to 20 bucks at Toys-R-Us, it is worth buying at least two. I have a 5year old daughter and she can play many of the games simply because the motion plus control is similar to real life movements. Just pretend that you are really shooting an arrow or throwing a frisbee and the Mii will do just that.
We had so much fun that our faces hurt from so much laughing and smiling. The rowing in the canoe races is a good workout, the sword slicing is also great with another player.
You can play up to four players, but even with two, it was a blast. We probably wont buy more motion plus, (only two). But with the one that comes with the game, its more than enough. Most games are funner when played with two players than with four. You get better odds or winning and have more of a challenge since you only have to compare your position with only one other person.

I use this game as a therapeutic tool for geriatric adults. They LOVE the game and find the swordplay games particularly fun. There are games for all levels of cognitive ability and endurance. They find the games so entertaining, they forget how much activity they're doing.
They also enjoy PingPong, which is impressive the way the physics of the game imitate the real game. I also love that you can smack your partner in the face with the ball if you hit it just right. Archery is okay for some, but not as active as I would like.
I was not very impressed with the airsports due to very abstract goals. I am unable to use the wakeboarding, canoeing, jetski, basketball, or cycling with this population, although I enjoyed them.
Overall, this game has a lot to offer and I am thrilled to use it at work!
