  3. Is Wii Motion Plus ABSOLUTELY required?

I got this game for Christmas because it was really the only thing that would make me dust off my Wii for once, and because I needed a good 40 hour campaign. However, it says Wii Motion Plus is required. Does that mean that it is absolutely impossible to play the game without it? If so, I'm just going to return it because it's not worth it if I have to dish out another $30-ish.
p + w > 9000, where p is the power level and w is what the scouter said about it.

Yes Motion Plus is necessary to play Skyward Sword.
And Motion Plus Accessories don't cost that much these days....

Seriously, that's a stupid reason to not play a game.

Well, I'm not really that interested in it. I got a lot of other games for Christmas that I'd rather be playing and having to dish out more money for something I'm kind of "meh" about isn't worth it.

If you have a friend who has the accessory, you can ask to borrow it and try SS out at some point - you might find that you enjoy the game.

depends what country you live in...

My wiimote plus costs as much as the game itself. both the game and the wiimote summed up to 162 dollars...

If you want to buy the Wii-U, it comes with Motion+ already in the controllers. Maybe an investment you can make later when Wii-U games become more mainstream? Just a thought.

That's about as far as I got before losing all interest in your post. At first I was going to tell you that it's not that expensive and that the game is really good, if imperfect. But then you go and call a singleplayer game's story a "campaign."

Kind of inconsistent.

Seriously dude?
Just go to ebay, find a used motion+ add on, and stop complaining.

The box clearly says you have to have it, the advertisements for the game clearly say "control the sword with wii motion plus!"

I really hate people that won't give a game a chance just because they don't like motion controls. Why do you even have a wii then?

The only game that actually works well with real motion controls is Skyward Sword, literally everything else is a waggle fest on the console. So, if you're worried about motion controls, don't even equate Skyward Sword to any other Wii game. Motion+ is totally worth the investment, and is a million times better than the wii remote alone.

Actually, I'd say Red Steel 2 did a well enough job with WM+.

Also, it's worth mentioning that if you ever get a Wii U, many games for it will continue to use Wiimotes, and of those, the majority will probably use WM+.
