Summary: [[ASIN:B004W4S1S8 Wii Play Motion with Black Wii Remote Plus] I actually just purchased this [[ASIN:B004W4S1S8 Wii Play Motion with Black Wii Remote Plus]]because it came with the new MotionPlus remote. Purchased by themselves, they run around $40, so getting with a game was a great deal. I carry this in my own Amazon store. If you don't have a MotionPlus remote, then you are missing out on an improved gaming experience.
Summary: The MotionPlus adds some fun extra sounds/vibrations to the game, but I was a little annoyed that I was required to purchase one in order to play the game at all. My particular unit is glitchy, as the nunchuck will often have communication issues with the MotionPlus unit and cause Link to spin in circles or move in various directions, as if the joystick were being pushed in that direction. This does not happen with any other game when the MotionPlus is not connected.
Summary: At first I was a little skeptical about the item mainly because it was so cheap! I bought it because someone had gave me a copy of Wii Resort without the adapters. Once I received it in the mail it was a breeze to attach to the Wii remote that I already have. I had had it for about three weeks now and I have never came across a problem.
Summary: I have been in love with my WII since I purchased it 4 years ago. I currently have about 40 games and play about half of them regularly. WiiPlay Motion is not one of those 20 but I do play it occasionally. I think my biggest issue is that most of the games use too similar motions during play. None of them are terribly active but honestly I might be griping more about the actual WII platform here.
Summary: First, I am not rating a game. I happen to love the game I'm currently playing, but I can't play it without the Wii Motion Plus and that is a bit of a minus. This controler needs to constantly be recalibrated during game play. The motion is slightly laggy. Maybe by the next generation, they will work out the bugs. Maybe Nintendo will be left so far behind there won't be another generation. You will need lots of batteries and patience.
Summary: I haven't used it yet, but I will tell you this: The box and instructions on this item shipped by Quick Buys are almost entirely in Japanese! There is only one part in English, on the outside of the box which reads (roughly): For Sale and Use Only In Japan. Caveat emptor.
Summary: I bought the Motion Plus attachment thinking I'd notice far superior control right out of the box, but so far this hasn't been the case. Maybe I need to use it with some more advanced games, but in the Wii Sports Resort game I bought at the same time this controller functions identically to the old controller without Motion Plus. Hopefully as I use it more with better games I'll have a better opinion of it, but for now I'll just have to say it's "Okay".
Summary: purchased this as a gift for a grandson for Christmas. He has several wii games, and this was something he wanted. I know nothing about such things, but the young ones these are highly technichal with their entertainment, and this is just the tool he wanted to make his wii interaction more versatile.
