There are a lot of very positive reviews about this from many other people, not just on this site, but also on other sites.
The 'media' reviews had tended to be lower at rating it than public reviews, I wasn't sure what to do, or why there was the difference.
I decided to purchase it (when it was finally in stock) none the less.
Just so you know, I already own House of the Dead and when i bought this and i had purchased a GAMEWARE Zapper at the same time.
I would guess that depending which you buy first, it will influence which you prefer.
I found this game a bit slow when compared to HotD (House of the Dead). Don't get me wrong, the game is ok, just not as frantic and fun as HotD.
The Wii zapper its self is good, and marginally better designed that the GAMEWARE one (powers off much easier, is easier to put together and is a single solid unit).
Overall I felt under-whelmed when this finally arrived on my door step. Better for younger people (no gore) when compared to HotD and the build quality is good as well.
Just don't expect something phenomal and you will be ok. It is ok, I would say much more than that though.
If you need a gun holder, get it.
If you like Link, get it.
If you are looking for a second gun holder, maybe get it if the price is right for you.
(See if there are others who have HotD and other gun holders as well as this. I would even be interested to know what they think to see if they agree with me)
