Wii Sports - Why it’s gotta be good!!

Each Wii console that is sold will all be supplied with Wii Sports.  Nintendo must be confident that it is good, as if it is a flop everyone will know about it!!!!!!

Wii Sports is a compliation of 5 confirmed games (the rumours say there may be up to 30 games), these are: Tennis, Baseball, Golf, Bowling and Boxing.  Each will use the Wii Remote by itself or in conjunction with the Nunchuk.  Nintendo have been very coy, the games may not boast the best graphics ever, but by using the remote they aim to provide a unique and realistic experience.  They hope it will emphasize the best features if the Wii Remote.

Wii Tennis - In Wii Tennis, the character automatically moves to where the ball will land. The player then has to use the correct stroke and swing to hit the ball. Nintendo states that the remote is sensitive enough to make it possible to add spin to the ball. Players grab the controller like a racket and swing; the game will register forehands, backhands, volleys, lobs, slices, spin, and power depending on how fast the user swings and at what angle. With the Wii’s ability to have up to 4 players multiplayer will be absolutely awesome!!!

Wii Baseball - Your character will stand at home plate and will hit the ball when it is thrown by a computer pitcher. Players grip the controller like a bat and swat fastballs out of the park in a home run derby, but it is up to the player to use the correct timing and positioning to hit the ball.

Wii Golf - In Wii Golf, the controlled character always faces towards the hole, requiring the player only to choose the appropriate strength with which to swing. After each swing, the player moves to the ball’s new location and swings again. The faster players swing the controller, the further the ball will fly. As in real golf, which I suck at by the way, putting I’m sure will be much harder than just smacking the ball.  I’ll probably suck at the Wii version just as much as in real life!!!

Wii Bowling - In Wii Bowling, the player swings the controller backward, and then pushes it forward to roll the ball, similar to the motion required for golf. Spin can be put on the ball by tilting the controller on release.  Now, I am good at bowling, my technique is pick the heaviest ball possible, throw it as hard as possible, and whack!!  Strike!!!  Will this work on the Wii????  We’ll have to wait and see!!!!

Wii Boxing - This will utilise both the controller and the nunchuk attachment. The player holds one in each hand, then jabs to punch. Raising both hands (controllers) blocks punches from the opponent. Two players can compete on a split-screen view.  I can’t wait to beat up my mates!!!
