E3 09: Wii Sports Resort – Archery
The upcoming Nintendo Wii game, Wii Sports Resort was shown off at E3 today. In this game you will be able to play 12 activities including Frisbee, Jet Skiing, Kendo, Table Tennis, Golf, Parachuting, Basketball, Archery, Cycling, Bowling, Canoeing, and wakeboarding. Of all of them, Archery was making the most buzz at E3.
During Nintendo’s Wii Sports Resort presentation the Archery portion was demoed. The way you play the game is by holding the Wiimote as the bow and the nunchuk as the arrow. The difficulty of the game is described as like real life, as in it requires a great deal of skill. Players will find that the game is not about learning the controls, but doing what comes natural.
When playing you must account for wind, distance, and moving targets. By pulling back further and aiming higher you can arch your shot to hit your target. as you pull back a reticle appears and gets smaller the further you pull back.
This game looks like a lot of fun and we will give our full impressions when we get our hands on it.
