The Wii Remote Plus is just like the original controller from size and shape. However, for sport games, I have noticed a big difference in the reaction time, speed and positioning. This remote has much better accuracy in games then its predecessor. Unfortunately though, I find the cost a bit high, but most of the new games don't work without it, so you are kind of forced to buy it. But I have no complaints. It's comfortable to hold and as I said, the plus side is that the reaction time, speed and positioning of your players movements are much better.
