    I heard that GhostSlayer for example is worthless without WM+, and Spongebob, on other hand uses this device just for one stupid minigame.
    Can you tell me more about this, what games with optional WM+ support really make something out of it?

    Best game with optional WM+ would be Tiger Woods 11, it is 100x better then without WM+. EA's Grand Slam Tennis also has optional WM+ and it does offer better control when with WM+, without WM+ it plays just like the very first Wii Sports Tennis mode (but with nunchuk support for user controlled movement). Wii Sports Resort and Red Steel 2 both require WM+, and both make great use of it.

    Virtua Tennis is much better too.

    Avatar makes it better but that game is still crappy.

    Motion Plus makes game that support it control much better. It is a good investment.

    Allright, Thank you. But now I have a decision: what tennis game should I chose? Virtua or Grand Slam? Or maybe even table tennis in SportsResort will do fine?

    Only table tennis in Wii Sports Resort. It is fun... but a limited game. For the best full tennis experience, I'd play Grand Slam Tennis. I liked how you could play it with or without nunchuck; option where the game will control movement for you, you just time and aim swings. And the career mode of Grand Slam was really good, lots of game modes. Also only game to have the official 4 grand slams (australian, wimbledon, french & us) in one place. Unless the 'cartoon' look that EA's been using on some of their Wii games isn't your style, that may be the only thing considered as a downside by some.

    And you all said that adding the "required" (that was changed to "suggested" on the wiki) was bullshit.

    I'll have to disagree with you about Tiger Woods 2011. The WM+ makes this series much better in my opinion. The game is harder to play as a top level golfer, but as long as everyone uses it for a while you get much better over time. It has saved me more times than I can think of when my stance is off angle to level ground like at a deep sand trap and I can rotate the club face at a radical strike angle. Without it, your shot will fire off to one side no matter how much you over compensate to the other direction. A real shot saver the Motion Plus is.

    Playing the older versions (without WM+) is too much like an arcade game. No experience or skill needed. Holes-in-one almost every game! Who needs that.

    That is what i said... maybe word order was confusing... but I said with WM+ it makes TW2011 100x better then if you play it without.
