Wii Gun (Wii)
Advantages: Works well, add extra fun to games
Disadvantages: Not many
I recently bought House of the Dead for the wii as it's a great old school game I remember playing when I was a kid. To go with the game I wanted to get a plastic gun case to use in conjunction with the wii remote.
The main purpose of the gun it to case the official wii remote and allow the game to be played like an official arcade version. It is like the wii steering wheel in the sense that it is to be used in addition to the wii remote and is only on certain games.
The unit it well designed and allows for the wii remote to be clipped in and removed very easily. The case holds the remote very securely and I have never experienced the remote falling out. The main remote clips onto the body of the gun with the nun-chuck being secured to the handle. The trigger works well and never fails to hit the correct button on the remote giving a reliable response.
The gun is not essential to play these sort of first person shooters but I would recommend getting one as it makes playing the gun a lot more fun. There is a huge variety of games available on the wii that are compatible with the gun so you will not be restricted to just the one game, and if this is the sort of genre you enjoy playing than it's a no brainer.
I managed to pick up the gun for only £4.99 as it was half price in a sale at Gamestation. For that price I am glad I got it. Despite me liking the unit I have only actually used it a hand full of times as I do not play the wii too often but non the less am glad I got it.
I bought it in white (despite having a black consol and remote) as it was the only colour they had in stock. I believe it ids also available in black as well as other colours. If this particular unit is not available there are dozens to choose from, all of which do virtually the same thing.
Summary: Worth the money paid
