Wii Motionplus questions

#1 Posted by Jams (2961 posts) -

I just bought a Motionplus and was wondering if it helps stabilize on all games. So for instance in a FPS it helps make you more accurate? Or does it only work in designated games? I ask this because it seems like my point in the menu alone is more stable and accurate. One more question, I don't have any games that make use, any suggestions? (I have red steel 2 in Gamefly Q

The Motion Plus is only compatible with games designed to use it.  If you don't have it, I'd recommend getting Wii Sports Resort, as that game is much, much more robust than the original Wii Sports.

You gotta check the box. It should say Wii Motionplus supported. It sucks because the games that came out before Wii Motionplus can't update their software to support it and not all current games do support it.

Games that support it state it on the box. It also won't make you more accurate even in FPS that do support it because motion sensing has nothing to do with the IR camera functions of the remote (what's used in FPS aiming), which work fine without M+ so games have no reason to enhance it with M+ (other than making transitions from off screen to on screen pointer functions smoother, as seen in Red Steel 2). If you're inaccurate, simply practice.

There were 2 tennis games that supported it, which were reviewed well - Grand Slam and Virtua Tennis.  Tiger Woods 10 used it to great effect.  That is about it I think, as you know about Red Steel.  We can only hope more come along.  This   6 Supported games  may be helpful.

Wii Sports Resort and Rage of the Gladiator also scored very well.
