First of all, I just found it tragic that one review complains about the "aiming" of the gun, when the aiming of the gun is not a problem of the gun itself, but probably the wii design and settings (more likely the latter). I noticed aiming problems when i started using the gun, and it was because of my Wii settings were off. After I had that fixed, it was still slightly inaccurate, but accurate enough for decent shots (I noticed that Zelda crossbow training was a bit off more than usual, but maybe that's just me) If you're sick of holding your wiimote in a lame fashion while playing shooting games such as resident evil:UC, then this accessory is worth it. The frame seems too lightweight at first, but after attaching the wiimote, the gun seems to be well-balanced in the hand. It feels slightly bulgy when I first gripped it (maybe my hands are too small), but it didn't seem to bother me otherwise. I wouldn't say I play games very much, but this got me playing Zelda crossbow training and RE:UC more consistently lately, being that it feels more comfortable than the wiimote, or zapper. It's definitely nicer to have more flexibility with the nunchuk and its controls as well. My main complaint would be that the first thing I noticed when I opened the package, was that the trigger button squeaked. I hoped that it would go away, but it's still there. Unfortunately, I feel like this aspect might be common in the other guns, so I don't plan on returning it. However, it's not something too noticeable during gameplay, so I could live with it... I would say that for everyone who just feels likes picking up a point-and-shoot game, this is an ideal accessory that should have a wide audience. Surprisingly, even my girlfriend got into RE:UC after using the perfect shot gun, even though she originally thought she'd hate such games! As a last note, if you're looking for an accessory to visually impress your friends, this would NOT be it... ...save your quarters from the arcade, and buy the gun instead!

This is a great gun accessory because...guess what? It actually looks and feels like a gun, shocking isn't it. Seriously though, I had Ghost Squad but the Perfect Shot was on back order. I tried to play just with the wii-mote and the game was lame. Got my Perfect Shot and all of a sudden the game was really fun. Very sturdy design and good weight balance, button config is akward on MOH Heroes 2 in regards to changing weapons and throwing grenades but shooting was outstanding. You'd be crazy to get the zapper or some other cheap immitation, this is as good as it gets for rail shooters or any other light gun game. Now they need to make me an Assault Rifle version :)

A couple qwerks, but overall good.

I bought a couple of these for some of my shooter games. Overall I’m quite pleased with the gun; it’s an improvement over the competition. The controller locks in nice and easy, it’s fairly ergonomic, it’s much more gun-like in operation. I do however have three gripes. The gun handle isn’t very well fitted to a human hand it’s a little bulky, it does the job but it’s not as comfortable as I’d like but not a big problem. Second, so many games use A to navigate menus or fire, that and lack of access to the direction pad make it unusable in some games. But that’s not Nyko’s fault, it’s more Nintendo’s or the game manufacturer’s. It would be nice if they could come up with an innovative way to give access to these buttons but that’s easier said than done. Third, and biggest, the internal spring is nice for response time but it’s a wee bit too tight. On games that require fast shooting like house of the dead 2 & 3 you’ll find you finger getting too tired to play quite quickly. I often have to swap trigger fingers or hands in order to keep going. I’d like to find a way to loosen it up a bit. Overall I’d give the thing a high recommendation, as far as Wii gun adapters go it’s the best one out. Read More
