    I'd say yes, some games are duds but the ones that are good are really good. Spent ages on the sword fighting and flying game. One of those games you just spend hours on. I'm not someone who is into these sort of "casual" titles, I hate Wii Music, Wii Play & Wii Fit but this title shows that it has so much attention to it, the others just seemed rushed to me.

    WSR is just a classic Nintendo game. No idea how it got scores lower than 8/10.

    I got my M+for something like £15 and its worth it, its so much better for Virtua Tennis, Tiger Woods 10 & EA Tennis. The golf & pingpong on Wii Sports Resort are much more improved with it.

    Pretty much a AAA title, best thing Nintendo have done since Brawl (wasn't into the Wii version of Mario Kart).

    Wrong section to ask, but yeah, you should definitely get Sports Resort.

    Played it for a few hours and really enjoyed it. [​IMG]

    I get a WM+ today and i think it's a great add on.

    First, WS Resort doesn't work without it, but with it it's a more than cool. [​IMG]

    I don't know all the right words in English, i think you MUST buy and try it. Play Table Tennis with it, Bowling or something else and you understand what i mean.

    Yeah, get it.
    Future titles will support it too, like Red Steel 2 and maybe even the new Zelda.

    I haven't played it yet, so I can't advise one way or the other. But I will say this, it's one of those games, like Rhythm Heaven, that I've been very excited about as it's neared its release. Over twice as many minis as the first Wii Sports, plus motion control on a level we were initially led to believe Wii would deliver? Sign me up.

    However, is WS resort released in the west?
    Because I think I can either get Resort with WM+ or just WM+, but, if its already in the west, I'll just get a backup of it, I dont think it will hard anyone [​IMG]
    BTW, sry for the wrong section, most of my msgs were on the other forum and I mistakely posted it there [​IMG]

    Well, you're getting a full game and the WM+ for $50 (I think), that's a pretty good deal. Then you can wait a few months, buy the Red Steel 2 bundle (with another WM+) and you'll be set.

    Well, 50$ for a JAP game when I can get it on PAL [​IMG]
    I'll just stick with the MW+ only, thanks for the assistance. [​IMG]

    I really like WSR! I just finished the Island Flight (need to pop the balloons though), that was really addictive!

    It's a nice game for everyone [​IMG]

    In the beginning I just thought it was a fun game, but since yesterday I found out this game really has got legs. It's just like with Wii Sports that it constantly challenges you to score higher and the levels just keep going up.

    Also I thought the basic bowling is very easy and not quite challenging, but when we unlocked the bowling-with-obstacles part it became very fun and challenging, simply because the WM+ really kicks in here. Planning your swing, including wrist turn for the nescesary effect is brilliant!

    Now I've got the english version I'll be playing this a lot!

    Note about the art style: I do think the style and polish of the game is very good BUT I think Nintendo is focusing a bit too much on the cuddly mii/teletubbies style. It's a sort of laid back/feel good/universal design with even some new age elements and the cartoony Mario element is totally missing. I think it's a shame actually. I mean it looks good, but it also feels a bit empty.
