Wii Perfect Shot
Great gun in every respect
I picked this up at a local store for Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles and its worked great so far. The controller fits in the gun very snugly and all the buttons are still easily accessible. The price is a bargain too. The only drawback I could find is that it can get uncomfortable at times. The grip is a bit too wide for my tastes, but the biggest problem by far is the weight of the thing when you have the controller fitted in it. With the Wiimote on it, it becomes so heavy at the front it will make your hand tired after only 20-30 minutes of play because of how uneven it is. Fortunately this is easily fixed. You can balance the weight of the gun by adding some weight to the back inside the grip. Even though it doesn't sound like it would help, balancing it out makes a world of difference. Just remove the screws, open it up, and tape something to the inside of the grip to weigh it down. I used two big heavy bolts I had sitting around my garage but fishing weights or anything heavy will do.
The only Shooting product u will ever need!!
The perfect shot really is the perfect shot for the WII!! I bought mine for house of the dead 2&3 and is perfect. It looks and feels just like a pistol unlike all the other crazy and more expensive shooting products out there. The WII Zapper is very annoying and hard to use out of the box but with the perfect shot i was ready to start playing right out of the box, it has a port on the bottom so you can use the nunchuck if you want to. I got my wii from a friend and he didn't give me the nunchuck so the perfect shot was perfect for me. Unlike the other products you don't use 2 hands which is great since your arms don't get so tired. It's easy to use just slip the controller on top and flip the orange lever on top and your good to go! Best of all it shoots like a gun and not like a cross bow like the Zapper which makes shooter games feel just like the arcade! It is hard to find but just shows you how popular and reliable this prouduct is. All in all this is the only shooting product for the Wii, period.
I guess my hands are too big.... :(
There are 2 things to take into consideration when using this controller: 1) If you are a large person (you have big hands) then you can still use this product but just realize that it was designed for people with small hands. My cousin and I were playing the new Resident Evil game on the Wii and about 45 minutes into game play my hands were killing me! I'm guessing that my cousin has average hands and even his were starting to hurt as well. 2) I don't know about you but I like to look down the sites of my gun. If the sensor bar was in the middle of the screen then I could do this. With the old NES Zapper you could do this and that gun didn't hurt my hand.. HA! But anyway, I couldn't aim down the sites and ended up just holding the gun down by my side. What's the point in owning this gun if you can't aim!? So I DO NOT recommend this product. I ended up just taking out the remote of the gun and played it like a normal Wii game.
Needs to emulate more buttons
So, I dont know how this works for other FPS games, but using this for the new Goldeneye = fail.
You'll need to be able to use the other buttons on the Wii besides the trigger in an immediate response. Meaning, if im in the middle of a shootout, I cant use the gun to fire while moving my hand out of the gun and onto the remote to reload and/or switch guns while using my other hand to control movement. They need to transfer those buttons to the gun, at the very least reload and switch. I wouldnt mind if the camera button or enable silencer button stayed non-emulated. But at the current stage the Perfect Shot is far from ideal for this game.
Well this little gun may look like a waste of money but the Wii Blaster is this gun is better than it looks. I can easily put and take off the Wii remote and on the bottom i can connect the Wii nunchuck for some games like Call of Duty World of War. And it is cheap so once you buy just one you may want to consider buying another for multiplayer. This little gun is just like the Zapper but its unique small style is what gives it some attitude however it does way a little more than excpected but that just gives you a real gun firing feeling which supports you when you play several shooting games on the Wii. So what are you waiting for your done with waiting get your Wii Perfect Shot today before they run out in your neighborhood Gamestop Stores.
Easily tops the Wii Zapper and Blaster
If you are a fan of the arcade games that use hand guns such as House of the Dead, then you'll feel right at home with this extraordinary peripheral. In terms of comfort, it is just like the arcade hand guns. It fits will in your hand, and is very simple to use. For those of you who haven't played any of the arcade games, then it will take a bit to get used to. After a while, it will fit nicely in your hand. As for design, it is superb. As soon as I saw this online, I instantly wanted it. Everybody likes guns. So, being closest to a real gun, wins out of the three guns. It's color and design matches that of the Wii's, and looks very good when held in your hand. You could seriously take a picture with it! It holds the Wii remote at the top. There is a plug in the very back that goes into your Wii Remote as a nun chuck or a classic controller would connect to it. At the bottom of the gun, there is a port for your Nun Chuck or Classic Controller. Unfortunately, there is no spot from the strap on your Wii remote. You will have to remove it, but it is only a minor problem. There is an orange part at the top of the gun that will hold your Wii Remote in place, and it does a very good job of doing that. This product is very durable. Not once has it scratched out of all the times it fell. The Wii Remote hasn't been damaged either. The product functions very well. It will last for a very long time. If it isn't functioning probably, it's most likely because of the wii remote. Very responsive, the trigger hits the B button, more commonly used for on-rail shooters. Overall, I definitely recommend the Wii Perfect Shot. It is perfect for games such as House of The Dead 2 & 3 Return, Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles, Ghost Squad, etc. Unfortunately, due to the fact that it's control scheme can not be changed, Resident Evil 4 is unplayable. A shame, I know, as I am a head blasting freak in that game. This is just perfect, go buy it!
When I first saw the 'Shot' on this website I was skeptical. I am a Zapper fan, having reached max weapons on Ghost Squad. The Zapper design suits games based on assault weapons or multi-button scenarios. After playing Target Terror with the Zapper, I thought again about the Perfect Shot. 'Terror' does not allow for various button configurations which hinders play with the Zapper. I bought the 'Shot' yesterday; it didn't take me very long to change my initial impression. The 'Shot' without the Wii-mote fit very nicely in my hand. The little extra weight of the Wii-mote gave it a balanced feel. I played a quick round of 'Terror'. I quickly slaughtered a bunch of bad guys which cleared any remaining doubts about the 'Shot'. Today I played House of Dead 2 & 3 with the 'Shot'. For kicks I even played some Ghost Squad with it. The Perfect Shot is the Perfect Sidearm for the Wii. The Perfect Shot and the Zapper = lots of dead bad guys!
A perfect shot indeed
After using the Nintendo branded Wii gun and another generic knock off, I would have to say that this is by far the best one for any type of shooters. Comfortable to use for extended periods, nice weight to it (with Wiimote), and it's still functional with a pass though port for the Nunchuk. It also has a nice spring loaded trigger that can take some abuse. Speaking of the trigger, it's designed to hit the B button on the bottom, which makes Perfect for games where you cannot change the button mapping (some other Wiimote guns only allow the Z-Button to be used...). However there are a few downsides. The first would be actually getting the Wiimote into the thing. Maybe it was just me, but i felt like i was going to snap off the little connector on the inside. But once it's in, it doesn't move around. It was just a pain initially. The second thing that might be a down side for some people is the aiming notch. There is a back notch but no front notch. No big deal I guess, but it might be nice to have to aim just a bit better. Also the grip may be a bit small for people with larger hands and fingers. Over all this is a great Wii gun grip. As the name says, its a perfect shot.
A nice, easy to use, controller!
This is a great light gun controller, and I love its pistol like design. Its comfort level is very good, it has an easy grip, and its easy to hold onto. I also highly recommend this game for arcade shooting games, this kinda goes back to the comfort, but its way easier to pull the trigger on the perfect shot to just use the B button located on the back of the Wii remote. The responsiveness is excellent, The way the remote is placed in the perfect shot is great, because the Wii remote is facing directly at the T.V and sensor bar. My Perfect shot still works like I just bought it, too. And when your done, the Wii remote (and sometimes Nunchuck) will come out really easily. I think that this gun is the best light gun for the Wii, and I give it my recommendation!
Nyko's Perfect Shot is the perfect Zapper alternative
I wasn't quite comfortable about the choice for design or functionality on Nintendo's Wii Zapper, so I thought about searching for an alternative. Knowing Nyko through an air cooler for my PS3 (which works wonders, by the way) I purchased a couple of Perfect Shot peripherals through their online store. Having used it on Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, I can safely say that this gun add-on is the best. The peripheral is designed like a pistol for a one- handed grip, the Wii remote fits on top of the peripheral with an aiming sight behind it, the trigger connects with the bottom button, and there's also a port at the bottom of the grip for attaching your nunchuk or classic controller. On the down side, since it's not an official nintendo product, no "Link's Crossbow Training" comes packaged with it. But if you can find at least one game that uses the zapper, you're pretty much good to go.
