Basketball is a sport the user can chose in the Wii video game Wii Sports Resort. Like all of the games present in Wii Sports Resort, it requires the use of Wii MotionPlus. A multiplayer mode is available.
There are two different modes available for this game, 3-Point Contest and Pickup Game. In 3-Point Contest, the player has 25 balls (5 are worth double points) to try to make as many 3 pointers as they can. In Pickup game, the player plays against the computer or another player. The offense can pass, dribble, and shoot, and the defense can attempt to steal, block, and defend the shots. The players move automatically.
If the user holds down on the 2 button on the Wii Remote while the game is loading, then they will play at night time.
