    Could someone post their opinions on each sport and say if he's likes it on a scale from 1 to 10?
    Because I don't have any bandwidth left to see those movies [​IMG]

    Okay thanks!
    Glad basketball is apparently very good.
    Sword fighting isn't that good, too bad.

    I disagree about sword fighting. For me so far, it's the most fun game, especially the mode that fights all the Mii's. It gets harder as the game goes on, and has that "just one more level" addictiveness.

    Sword Fighting - 10 (worth the price of game alone)
    Frisbee - 5 (not as good as the one on Tiger Woods 10)
    Wake Boarding- 5 (doesn't seem like much variety)
    Archery - 9 (very well done, but only played a little)
    Basketball - 7 (it's ok, 3 on 3 could have been better if it played more like playground BB)
    Ping Pong - 10 (the Wiisports tennis of WSR)
    Golf - 6 (doesn't have to feel of "actual golf" like Tiger Woods 10)
    Bowling - 7 (for me, it's lost a bit of the original charm, even with M+)
    Jet Ski - 6 (controls great, but can get boring unless you race with people)
    Kayak - 8 (I can't believe I spent over 17 minutes looking for those 10 baby ducks, but it was kinda relaxing)
    Cycling - 4 (as a cyclist, it didn't really appeal to me)
    Sky Diving - 5 (only tried the opening, haven't gotten into it)
    Flying - 8 (flying feels great, only wish the wiimote was held like a control stick)

    Nice video uploads! (And HD quality to boost!)
    The basketball and table tennis games look fun.

    Too bad I'm waiting for NTSC-U release.

    Sword Fighting - 9 (works great, but it's pretty easy against the CPU)
    Frisbee - 10 (excellent, make sure you have the control scheme where you release B to throw the frisbee)
    Wake Boarding- 3 (boring, but controls work fine)
    Archery - 7 (works great, but the accuracy of IR control is better)
    Basketball - 7 (I like this better than most people. Learning curve is a little high on figuring out the right technique)
    Ping Pong - 10 (better than Tennis. You can put some mad spin on the ball)
    Golf - 8 (not much different than the original, just more accuracy, which makes a big difference)
    Bowling - 8 (not much different, but was great to begin with)
    Jet Ski - 5 (doesn't really show off m+. better off playing mario kart or excitebots)
    Kayak - 6 (Has some charm. Controls well)
    Cycling - 2 (boring, and hate the controls. nothing new here)
    Sky Diving - 5 (not much fun)
    Flying - 6 (makes me long for an m+ pilotwings)

    I totally had the same feeling! [​IMG]

    I like the game but it's too bad I only have one WM+ as I think that this game would also be a lot of fun played together. But for the time being I don't think it's totally worth the money buying another one since my wife is not quite a gamer and is easily bored with games such as these.

    this game is great fun but one little thing is bugging me,my wm+ connector is loose as hell,when in an event and you pause it,it shows a pic of your controller ,is it supposed to be spinning wildly or just slowly rotating

    best event is the table tennis

    Out of the games I played, here is my list in order of best to worst:

    - Basketball
    - Ping Pong
    - Bowling
    - Archery
    - Sword Fighting
    - Golf
    - Flying
    - Wake Boarding

    I haven't tried the rest. Really Flying and Wake Boarding are garbage in my eyes. It doesn't fit in the whole Wii Sports world. I don't feel like I am doing the activity or anything.

    I can't hit a single basket in the basketball game unless it's an odd one by luck. How the heck do you get it so he's not just throwing the ball across the court? (exaggeration). I'm worse at Wii Sports basketball than I am at REAL basketball, and that's already pretty damn bad!

    The sword game is AWESOME! It really makes me pumped up for Red Steel 2, because it's clearly got massive potential.

    Archery is fun as well.

    I didn't do much of the flying ones, and what I did do was kinda boring... Probably better when I can read the text.

    The frisbee was frustrating as hell, as it always released waaay off of where I intended it to, so I always threw it wild. I should look for that option for releasing the frisbee with B.

    Just for Ping Pong Alone this is the best interactive game ever, seriously, the slightest movement on the wiimote is clearly visable on screen. All thats left now is to learn Japanese and understand the screen displays [​IMG]

    I'm disappointed with basketball. Doesn't look WMPlus-ish at all...

    Though I feel kind of lame for saying it, table tennis DOES looks the best, in my opinion. Looks very accurate.

    Thanks for the vids.

    I wonder if you can save the pictures taken during the sky dive. That would be so [​IMG].

    Played basketball 3 on 3 some more and it's starting to grow on me. Still don't like the all the starts & stops, you take the ball out after block or steal. And the 3 minute games are just too short. But the game itself, the shooting, dunking and the strategies are loads of fun. If another company can take the best parts of this basketball game and make it into a full game, it could be awesome.

    Looks like fun. Thanks for the vids. Can't wait for the localised release here.

    Fencing and table tennis look like fun. Not too hot on basketball, but will give them all a try once I get it. [​IMG]
