Wii Sports Resort, the follow-up to the popular Wii Sports and Nintendo's tech demo for the new Wii Motion Plus, has been released on the public to a generally positive reaction.
One of the biggest improvements over the original Wii Sports is the amount of content, with over twice as many games, many with multiple modes of play. It may not have the depth of Tiger Woods 2010, but it has plenty to do.
And yes, of course, there is unlockable content.
