Logic3 Sports Gun
Advantages: fairly ergonomic and realistic, dual trigger mode,looks cool, good response time/shock, accessibe
Disadvantages: slippy handle, doesnt officially use wiimotion plus
This is a fairly unheard of Light-Gun for the Wii. The design of the Logic 3 Sports Gun is clearly based upon that of the Heckler and Koch MP5K, and is available in black, which personally, I would opt for, simply for the realism factor that it brings.
The barrel is very thick and heavy, which adds a sense of realism and desperation, but also has the result of a dip in accuracy. The trigger function is pretty cool too, although doesn't quite feel like a real gun. Whilst the design of the weapon is fairly ergonomic, it doesn't really hold that well, and the plastic compound of the back handle is a little bit bubbly, which means that as you sweat, it starts to get slippy.
It's not too heavy and is easy to hold, although sadly it is not compatible with Wiimotion plus, at least that's what it says on the box, but I've found that if you jam the input device into the bottom of the remote before you put it in the gun itself, you can fit WiiMotion plus in quite comfortably, though I wouldn't recommend this as it might void the warranty of both items!
The dual-trigger system is particularly intuitive and has a very natural feel. Because it switches the A and B functions, time attack modes and quicktime events in games are made particularly simpler and will give a definite advantage. Access to the face buttons of the Wii remote is also perfectly fine, and there's absolutely no awkward covers or sharp edges to get in your way.
You can use the nunchuk with it by simply threading it through the gun, and then you can attach it to the back of the gun, like the classic Wii Zapper, or just hold it in your hand. It's reliable, simplistic and won't turn off halfway through. The response time and speed is also great, and the dual-trigger function definitely puts it above the mediocre pound shop ones. If you enjoy Wii rail shooters like HOTD: Overkill, Resident Evil or Ghost Squad, this is definitely a gun I'd recommend. A cut above the rest that is really well priced for a Wii peripheral, and if you can manage to pick it up new for under a tenner, I'd definitely recommend it. The dualshock function is also better than any other wii peripheral I've ever seen, and the plastic compound it's made of definitely won't snap, perish or fall apart. A must-have for aficianados of Wii shooters.
Summary: Undoubtedly one of the best lightguns out there.
