theres a secret melon in level 2 of archery
I got to play for a couple of hours last night.
Swordfighting - The best event by far. Controls are sweet and it is a lot of fun, whether dueling or doing the speed slice. Probably the best demonstration of what WMP can do.
Wakeboarding - Easy to control but probably hard to master. Doesn't seem to be much depth to it from what I've seen so far.
Frisbee - A good demonstration of WMP. The frisbee dog is cute n all but the frisbee golf mode will probably see more play.
Archery - Controls really well and it feels satisfying when you hit the targets. Another good demonstration of WMP.
Table Tennis - The best table tennis game on Wii? I think so. WMP works well and you can apply slice and spin to your shots with great effect.
Bowling - A classic. On first appearances it doesn't seem much different but the control is much more precise. The complete 100 pin game is available to play too.
Golf - A bigger selection of courses and more precise control than the previous Wii Sports Golf. WMP seemed to go out of sync quite a bit for me though.
Power Cruising - Controlling the jet ski is easy. It's a good event but not really a great use of WMP (it could be done without it) and just makes me want a proper Wave Race game.
Basketball - Pretty basic. The 3 on 3 mode shows potential for a more fleshed out game though and I liked 'bouncing the ball' to dribble.
Canoeing - Not the most exciting event but the motions do work and you can play with 4 players simultaneously.
Cycling - The weakest of the events by far, almost like a Mario & Sonic Olympics event. Even though it is a poor offering compared to the rest it is still better than Wii Fits jogging or the majority of 3rd party sports mini games.
Air Sports - Made up of skydiving, fly over and dogfight. They all control well enough but this is another event that really makes me wish for a proper Pilotwings game.
I can see the swordfighting, table tennis, frisbee golf and bowling getting a lot of play (especially at partys), the other events not so much. WSR is worth it even just for those 4 events though and is a very worthy successor to the original. The only real complaint is that there is no online play again, as some of the events would have been a blast to play online.
There are no better bowling games than in WSR. The next best would be the original Wii Sports bowling. I don't think there are any really realistic boxing games that are very good, Punch Out! rates the best but is more arcadey. A boxing game that could use 2 WMPs and the balance board could be awesome though.

I'm wondering if the new (slightly updated) bowling has the same invisible help as the last one. In the original bowling, let's set the first throw knocked all pins except the right-most one (6 pin I believe, not sure). For the second shot, try and spin the ball to the left, I'm completely unable to do so. At best I can get it to go nearly straight down the lane. I CANNOT get it to veer away from the pin. Is this possible in the new bowling? For all the talk of bowling being the best (and it is fun) knowing this invisible helper it always there guiding the throws is somewhat annoying.
It looks good. I should of got this instead of The Conduit and I wanted a second wii motion plus anyways. Got one from Tiger woods then I would get one, which comes with this game. It looks like a lot of fun to play with friends and get the whole family into. Going to defiantly get this once I get enough money.
I picked up Wii Sports Resort today. Couldn't get a second WMP (store didn't have any, despite having lots of copies of the game available), so I need to keep my eyes peeled for that. I spent around 2 hours playing it tonight and on the whole I enjoy it. I have not yet played all the sports, but I'll try to comment on those I tried.
Bowling was quite challenging due to the more sensitive motion control. I've bowled 300 in the original Wii Sports and I doubt I will manage that any time soon in this game, as the most consecutive strikes I was able to get tonight was three.
Table tennis was enjoyable because the WMP gives you the control I wish I had in the original Wii Sports tennis game. Seeing the WMP in action makes me wish they had included a tennis game in this one. This game is a lot more sensitive to whether you're swinging forehand or backhand.
Basketball three-point shooting is a neat game, but having to pick up each ball in turn seems like it will become annoying. (You have to reach your remote down whilst hitting "B" to pick up the ball, then use the remote in a shooting motion to shoot three-pointers.) I suppose in actual three-point contests the shooter has to pick up the balls himself and thus I shouldn't grumble about it, but tonight it got on my nerves.
The swordfighting seems more enjoyable than the boxing in the original Wii Sports. I worked up a bit of a sweat whilst playing this one.
Throwing the Frisbee to the dog was quite difficult. I'm having a lot of trouble getting it aimed well.
Archery is interesting and the 35-yard distance on the beginner game was rather challenging. Holding the remote in my left hand and the nunchuk in my right hand was EXTREMELY unnatural to me since I've always done the opposite in all other games (I play Mario Kart using the remote/nunchuk rather than the wheel, so I use the nunchuk a lot!).
I don't entirely get wakeboarding just yet. I understand the general idea of what you're supposed to do, but controlling it is giving me trouble.
All in all it seems like an entertaining game with enough depth to keep you interested. All the games have multiple modes that you unlock as you play, so it's not simply a game where you just increase your skill level over time like in the original Wii Sports. I agree with "raisinghelen" that online play would have been a nice addition, but its omission doesn't weaken the game too much in my view.
Im finding it quite fun. Haven't played all of the events, but the large majority of them I have. Alot you can do which makes for tons of replayability

Great but why is there a tennis court hidden on the island but no tennis game
i think the best games are
Plus the opening is great where the first time you play it you are doing skydiving
the only problem is the frisbee it throw it in the wrong place
