      Go for a different light gun.

      The Joytech Sharp Shooter is a light gun peripheral for the Wii. Its shaped like a long revolver and is pretty difficult to load the Wii remote into. In terms of quality, you can get something much, much better in poundland, unbelievably enough.

      You can, at least, plug the nunchuk into the back of it, but this is really awkward owing to the shape of the handle. Its easy to get the nunchuk upside down and get its wire twisted. Its also particularly difficult to hold if you're left handed.

      It boasts really promising gimmicks like "Become a master marksman" but with a lot of rail gun and archery games, this thing is pretty much unusable. Its ugly, innacurate and difficult to even aim at the screen with. It isn't even marginally ergonomic. This is the only light gun peripheral that I would rather just do without, and play with the remote. It definitely doesn't deserve the title "Sharp Shooter." It doesn't look or feel anything like a gun, particularly due to the oversized, ugly as hell trigger button, and awful handle. There's not even anywhere to comfortably keep your thumb. Believe me, this thing HURTS.

      In-game puzzles are pretty impossible to use with this thing too. Although the face buttons are pretty accessible, they're pretty far away from the handle, and grabbing the top of your gun is really awkward. Also, the name implies compatibility with WiiMotion plus, as does all its promises about accuracy, which it doesn't have. Also, its bright orange.....Why?! It looks very cheap and tacky, and there's definitely a reason why this bit of cheap orange plastic hasn't enjoyed decent sales anywhere.

      It costs around a tenner, and really isn't worth the money. You're much better off with something like the Nyko Perfect Shot. Not recommended.
