Nintendo Wii Zapper
Advantages: FPS games are enhanced by this
I must say that the wii is not my favourite console for many reasons, but chiefly due to the catalogue of games there are out there does not really suit my tastes and many of the decent games play better on the more powerful consoles on the market.
However with the wii having a pretty much established 'light gun' controller I figured the new resident evil rail shooters to be a must try. The game I got didn't come with a gun adapter so I jut played the game with the standard remote, this was more than sufficient to play the game,. however in the later stages where sharp shooting and much faster reload and trigger finger is needed you'll find that you're not firing quick enough for many of the enemies. I managed to pick up the zapper at a second hand game store and this extra piece of plastic for the remote has completely changed the game play, now you have better aim and faster fire rate.
This is thanks to the trigger being on the b button of the remote being in place of your index finger in a much more comfortable position as a gun trigger would be.
There are many copied version of the zapper but the official version does seat the remote and nun chuck very well and allows you to store the wire within itself.
I would say that any FPS game you have the needs to nun chuck to play effectively should get this type of gun otherwise you might be better off getting a third party gun adapter that only houses the remote.
Summary: Great accessory to have for any FPS game fan
