Product Description

CTA DIGITAL WI-CTG Crossbow Gun for Wii. Prepare your positioned bow, set your laser guided aim and release virtual arrows with the Crossbow for Wii from CTA Digital. This plastic Crossbow gun possesses a convincing mold and color scheme, with spiral decals reminiscent of the ancient eras. To operate, place the Wii Remote in the top cradle of the crossbow and the Wii Nunchuk in its outer grip. After attaching the controllers, manage the wire between them by running the cable along the groove in the outer edge of the Nunchuk grip. Contain the wire inside a sealable compartment and close the top cover onto the Wii Remote. An infrared laser beam is located beneath the barrel for pinpoint accuracy. Outfitted with all these features, this heroic piece of classic video game weaponry is ready to inflict epic havoc

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay for what it does, but could be sturdier. October 25, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm just gonna get this out of the way: The CTA Crossbow is designed as an alternative to the Official Wii Zapper with Link's Crossbow Training. Same basic layout, same basic feel. Only differences are the trigger, which is an improvement over the Zapper design, the crossbow wings and cable (both of which are just for looks and serve no practical function) and the inclusion of a sort of laser sight above the trigger - which was one of the two disappointments for me. I had to disassemble the trigger piece of the crossbow and realign the laser. It was way off center, pointing quite high and to the left. This was easily fixed with a small paper wad tucked into the housing and took less than ten minutes to align, but I shouldn't have had to do anything to it at all. I expect things to work as advertised when I buy them.

The other disappointment is how flimsy it is. When I saw this was made by CTA I expected it to be sturdy; I purchased their Wii SureShot Rifle and Wii Sniper Rifle Gun prior to this and was more than impressed with how sturdy and functional they were. Upon receiving the Crossbow, however, I was rather taken aback by how thin the plastic is around the pockets for the Wii Remote and the Nunchuck; both areas are quite flexible and I felt as though I was going to break it on assembly. With the controllers firmly inserted this problem is mostly negated, the but small "neck" which runs from the Nunchuck cradle to the main body of the Crossbow is thin, hollow plastic and more often than not I'm afraid it's going to break during use. I don't like to have a firm grip on it like I do the Zapper or the other CTA guns I've purchased in the past.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really cool, but the laser site is way off target September 13, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The cross bow looks awesome (looks real), and works great except that the laser site aims much higher than where the Wii remote hits. The laser site can't be adjusted, so the laser site is basically useless. Otherwise, this is a cool cross bow.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth what I paid. August 18, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me first start off by saying that I only paid a penny for this. I was actually ordering a Wii Crossfire Integrated Remote Pistol and only noticed this as a related purchase. Both were available for Super Saver shipping, but neither qualified on its own. Since this was $8.99 and I was going to have to pay $8.98 to ship the Crossfire anyway, I went ahead and bought this too, mostly out of curiosity. So, like I said, I got this for a penny, essentially. And, frankly, that's about all it's worth.

I don't have much to add that hasn't already been said. The whole thing feels very cheap and flimsy, especially the Nunchuck cradle and support. In fact, my Nunchuck cradle tried to curl in on itself, causing me to have to pry the sides apart in order to actually insert the Nunchuk. The compartment for the cord in much too small, and, like the Nunchuk cradle, the sides tried to bow inward, making the cover extremely difficult to fit back into place, even without the cord. In the end, even though I had folded my cord "very neatly into the compartment" as the instructions directed, the cover (once I finally got the thing in place) still wouldn't completely snap into place. There simply isn't enough room for the cord.

The trigger section actually feels relatively solid, and the trigger itself has a nice pull to it. While it was a bit inaccurate, I still liked the addition of the laser sight. As the other reviewers have noted, it is possible to disassemble the unit and re-align the laser, so that is fixable.

All of that being said, I still rather like this. I am all about full-immersion in video games, and so I really enjoy using this when playing Link's Crossbow Training.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average plastic engineering December 27, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Other reviews fail to mention several drawbacks relative to the Nintendo Zapper:

- trigger is a slide mechanism like the Nyko Perfect Shot or Nerf Switch Shot so is a bit more effort than the lever-style Zapper
- cable management is a compartment one stuffs the cable into w/o the perfectly spaced posts the Zapper has
- the attachment for the Nunchuk twists easily, lacking the rigidity of the Zapper

While it's fun and neat looking (esp. w/ a black remote and Nunchuk) one is not likely to score better w/ it than w/ a Zapper.

4.0 out of 5 stars Average Construction June 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The construction of the plastic crossbow is just about what you should expect. Average. That being said, I really enjoy the look of a crossbow more than the standard Wii gun. That right there is worth the money for me.

Don't expect much from the laser function. It's off center for where the gun will shoot, and it hardly shows up on my TV anyways.

Link's Crossbow Training game is great!! So addicting for a simple game!

4.0 out of 5 stars good value, but light weight. December 21, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The detail on the bow is terrific. Using this toy adds a nice element to the gaming experience. My only complaint is it is a little light weight and I'm concerned that kids playing rough might break it. If your klid is prone to throwing toys after losing a game, look for something a little more sturdy. Then again, it's not expensive so it's no great loss as far as the cost goes... cool accessory.

The laser is way off center, it makes a better toy to play with your cat. I pretty much agree with all the other reviews.

Very cheap plastic!! Difficult to put Wii handle inside of it. Do not recommend. Don't waste your money. Run from this product!

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow to respond to trigger pull.
It's alright. The trigger response is a little lagging for my tastes. It does get you in the mood of the game though.
