This is a very decent game, couldve been better. I like it alot but there are some difficulties, i didnt like the motion plus i think it makes the game alot more frustrating. Most of the games were great but i thought that some where not needed. The fencing and ping-pong were great but everytime i swung the wii remote too hard it would get messed up, and i have to pause and put the wii remote down for 10 seconds. I loved the game but i could lived without the wii motion plus, and some of the games were not needed suh as canoeing and biking. I loved the fencing, the air sports and the ping-pong. All in all a great game.

This may have been a great game however I wouldn't know. Gamefly will rent you the game but what they don't tell you is that you need the motion plus sensor or the game won't load. So unless you already have a motion plus sensor don't bother renting this because it's just a waste of 8 days while the game travels the mail.
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.
