IMPRESSIONS: Wii Sports Resort
« on: June 02, 2009, 03:38:03 PM »
We were able to play the Dueling event in Wii Sports Resort.  Check out our thoughts!

 I got a chance to try out the Dueling game in Wii Sports Resort, which places two characters atop a platform in the middle of a pool.  The aim is to knock your opponent off of the platform and into the water below before they do it to you.  Fear not for your Mii though as each one is equipped with protective headgear!  The winner of two of the three duels is the Final winner, and in the event of a tie, the platform becomes smaller for the tie-breaking round.    


The weapon is a light sabre-esque red or blue sword that you can use to attack by swinging the Wii Remote or block by pressing B.  Blocking is very useful because it stuns and knocks back the attacker who hits a block.    


While the Wii Sports Resort series aims to replicate the sport – which is successfully did in Archery (the other sport that I tried) – Dueling really isn't much of a sport to replicate.  I anticipated it to be similar to my high school sport fencing, an anticipation that was let down.  The best plan of attack in this game is to basically swing the Wii Remote and be wary of blocks to avoid being stunned.  However, the finer aspects of dueling – parry, reposts, etc. – are not involved with this Dueling feature, making it a highly enjoyable attack-as-fast-as-you-possibly-can game.  In addition, Wii MotionPlus did really make a difference in how this game was played, as the direction of the weapon followed the direction of the Wii Remote.

Just some random guy on the internet who has a different opinion of games than you.

You bet I did! Expect a few more Impressions (maybe a Preview or two), and some pictures (my main reason for being allowed along) -- as soon as there's enough time to get them up on the site!  Floor opens in 13 minutes.

So it's American Gladiators Assault?  :rolleyes:
