Though the majority of Wii titles that use any form of motion control require the use of a single Wii Remote, there are a select few that are designed for a single player to use two Wii Remotes simultaneously. This is generally done for games that require a greater degree of motion control than can be provided by the Nunchuk attachment. This also allows for a greater degree of freedom of motion, as the Nunchuk must constantly be connected to the Wii Remote by a cord.
Some games that are capable of this control scheme also feature alternate controls that require the use of only one Wii Remote, though this is not considered the optimal method to play such games. As an example, if the game Helix is played with only one Wii Remote, all of the gestures and actions that would normally be performed with a second Wii Remote are simply not played in any fashion.
