Nintendo Wii Zapper with Link's Crossbow Training
The Wii Zapper, NOT the Wii Gun
I remember getting the Wii zapper a couple years ago. I like the Zelda game that it came with. Using the zapper as Links's crossbow was alright since the zapper is shapped just like the crossbow in the game, but I sometimes found myself just using the Wii remote and nunchuk to shoot with. When I used the Zapper with any other game, such as 007 Quantum of Solace or Call of Duty, it felt very odd. Why? Well, the Wii Zapper isn't designed to be used as a gun. It was designed to be more of a... how do I put this... more of a unique shooting device, such as a crossbow. Well, it does not feel like a gun, and shooting with the front trigger feels very odd. I do understand why people may enjoy this. Some people think it is a good arcade shooting mechanism. I completely understand that. But I would much rather use the Cabela's Top Shot gun, which is around the same price and comes with a hunting game. CONCLUSION: Pick up a cabela's game bundled with the Top Shot Wii gun. Buy the Zelda Crossbow game for 2 dollars used.
Really good item
I would like to disagree with many other users, I find the zapper to be an excellent item, it fits in the hands well and makes you feel like you're holding a sub machine gun, and it works well for almost any shooter because all the controls are easy to get to, you can also wield the nunchuck without it being attached to the zapper if need be, so any controller argument is invalid on grounds that all functions remain intact and is more so a question of user skill or lack of in this case.
Now, about Link's Crossbow training, the game is short only depending on your attention span. There are medals to unlock depending on your score so you can beat it, and unlock diffrent modes, but you can always go back and try to unlock medals and higher scores, so the game is as long as you want it to be, with that said I've had it for months and still play it, it's a really fun game and the ranger modes allow you to explore levels and blast things, working for a high class medal means trying to aim better and score multi kills via shooting grenades and using the rapid fire power up.
The zapper works great with games like Onslaught, House of the dead overkill, Water Warfare, Call of duty and so forth, if a person can't use it, it's because of lack of sill or inability to adapt.
All in all this is a 5 star pack, you get out of it what you're willing to put in.
I had originally gotten this game just for the Wii Zapper, i didnt even know that a game came with it. But the game is cool, its fun to play with other people. Not lame, at all.
I love this game! It has good quality and lots of game experience. The "Comfort" is perfect, I love the way it just fits in your hand. The "Design" is great, it is cool but yet has stile, the only thing is it is a-little to small. But that is ok. The "Durability" is not so good, it will break easy, and it will scratch! So treat it like a REAL gun, also, it is made of plastic, NOT metal, so take extra care. The "Functionality" is good, it is a little slow, but other than that, IT IS GREAT! The overall is that it is a very good game, fun for everyone. Just be care-full that you dont break the Wii zapper... Other than that, GREAT JOB NINTENDO, keep up the good work. The Wii Zapper also works on other games too. If you have money to spend, then get this cheap, cool, game!
This is one of our families favorite games!! I bought this game originally for the WII Zapper , the game being a bonus. I thought it would be a lame duck, but after playing it once, my entire family is addicted to playing it. Once you figure out what are "Bonus" hidden items to shoot for more points and how to unlock the various other levels its an excellent game that i would recommend most definitly! Our favorite family game is the multi-player option , its always fun to see who can out score who and get the medal!! Try to play only one level and before you know it its 1 AM...happened on several occasions. Even the kids like it and its easy for them to figure out and not get discouraged, not to mention it is a game of shooting without violence......About time!!
This was deffinately a suprise! The Wii Zapper is extremely easy to figure out and easy to use. It is comfortable to use and has good durability. The design was just great, I love it. It functions perfect, I've had no problems with it. The game, Link's Crossbow Training is a blast. This is a game the whole family could enjoy, or you and a few friends. I mean, who dosn't like shooting things? The aiming with the Wii Zapper is easy, and accurate. I was rather suprised to find out how much fun this game is. It's got good graphics for the Wii and looks just like The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess. I would definately reccomend this product to people, and the game. Overall, This is a very good controller and a very fun and addicting game. This is a keeper.
Okay first off the zapper is great. and for the price you get the game and the zapper its a GREAT deal. I use the zapper for alot of other games as well and I've never had a problem. Now to the game... The game is a bit boring. nothing exciting. But it comes with the zapper. I play it every now and then but no longer then a half hr.
Good as itself.
The wii zapper is a good functioning, very comfortable, reliable designed wii accesory. Though, you cant use it with all games, and the games that you can use it with stink. I mean, face it. The wii has very sucky vshooter games. So all your doing with this is putting more money into sucky shooter games that your going to play for like a week tops and let it rot on the shelf, so you have just thrown away 20.00 bucks on an accesory that your hardly ever going to use again. What im saying is that the zapper is good, but the thing is that its good qualities are wasted. Now about that Zeldas crossbow training thing: I actually never even played it. its a little game that comes with it. I never played it because i never got into Zelda. ALright, the zapper is good, but only if you like wii shooters.
LOVE IT ON CALL OF DUTY
I BOUGHT A WII AND THEN I BOUGHT CALL OF DUTY WORLD AT WAR AND ON THE PACKAGE IT SAID ALL LEVELS INCLUDING MULTIPLAYER CUOLD BE PLAYED WITH THE WII ZAPPER SO I CHECKED IT OUT AND IT LOOKED GREAT SO I BOUGHT IT AND LOVED IT WITH WORLD AT WAR.
Great game for parties, and Zelda series fans!
This game is very fun, it reuses the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess graphics, in the form of a fun arcade style shooting game. The main point of this game is to demonstrate some of the Nintendo Wii's new features, which it succeeded in doing. The Wii Zapper itself is very comfortable, and a great holder for your Wii remote in other shooting games. I hope Nintendo makes more Zelda games like this in the future, maybe utilizing the new Skyward Sword graphics, and Wii Motion Plus.
