It's perhaps the Frisbee game that best displays the MotionPlus' true potential, though. You'll have fun watching your Mii character with the 1:1 replication before you toss the disc. While it takes some getting used to, the simulation does a very accurate job of allowing you to aim and toss a Frisbee into a bull's-eye area.
Not everything in Wii Sports Resort shows off the capabilities of the MotionPlus, though. The rehashed bowling game appears to have received nothing more than a cosmetic overhaul.
It's difficult to make a recommendation that you buy or don't buy the Nintendo Wii MotionPlus. While you may not love the way it feels in your hand, you'll be forced to use it if you want to play games like Wii Sports Resort and the upcoming Red Steel 2.
Ultimately, the value and innovation that the MotionPlus can potentially provide lies in the hands of the developers who program for it. It appears the technology will open up to a wide range of uses, so we'll just have to see how it's eventually applied.
Priced at around £18, you'll most probably only feel the monetary burden should you choose to purchase additional units, since the accessory comes bundled with games like Wii Sports Resort, available for around £40. There's no denying, however, that the MotionPlus does add some cash onto the cost of owning a Wii.
We'd like to see the MotionPlus built into a new Wii remote, but Nintendo has yet to announce anything like that.
