Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I recently purchased this blaster because I am a huge fan of the RE series and enjoy the gun-style games on Wii. I have the official Wii blaster made by Nintendo that came with Link's Crossbow training. The only thing that I like about that blaster better than this is the cord management, the RE blaster leaves the cord to the nunchuck hanging off to one side or the other. Other than that, I love this blaster. It has a spring in the trigger (much more accurate than the lack of one in the Nintendo model) and you have the option to take off the back grip and play with this gun in pistol mode. This makes the cord management a non-issue. Now let me compare this to the Nyko Perfect Shot, which I also own. The Perfect Shot has a much larger grip, and the wiimote fitment is a little more snug and secure (not that its loose by any means in the RE gun, but just better in the Perfect Shot). It also allows you to plug in a nunchuck through the passthrough at the bottom of the grip. This is great if you need it, but it leaves the nunchuck loose in your second hand. If I could choose one "blaster" shell out of all 3, I would suggest the RE blaster. It's versatility is excellent because its really a combination of the other two, and it just looks sweet.. Plus, it comes with an Umbrella Corporation thumb grip and skin for your wiimote, a nice touch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Guncon ever!! February 15, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is by far the best light gun to play Umbrella Chronicles or any other rail shooter. Reloading is super easy with movable back handle, and all of the buttons are accessible. Back "blaster" portion is removable to convert it to a pistol. Comes with a sweet remote skin and analog cover. An absolute must for any Resident Evil fan!! Capcom should rerelease them though, because they're super hard to find!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Resident Evil Blaster vs Nyko Perfect Shot November 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
So far, I've purchased both the Resident Evil Blaster and the Nyko Perfect Shot, and I can't say I like one more than the other. Both gun attachments have their pros and devastating cons.

Gamers complained about the Nyko Perfect Shot, because it was "front-heavy." Personally, I didn't mind, but if you tend to have somewhat small hands or a weak grip, the RE Blaster feels more balanced in the front and back. This is because there's some plastic material sticking out at the back end of the gun - like a parasaurolophus - to accomodate the nunchuck attachment as an option.

Some folks also complained that the Perfect Shot's handle was too large. So again, if you have hands that run smaller than average, the Blaster's handle is considerably small.

The same people also complained that the trigger on the Perfect Shot was too far away from the handle. The Blaster on the other hand, completely overcompensates with a trigger that is so close to the handle, that you can nearly form a fist, even with your index finger wrapped around the trigger.

The trigger's close proximity to the handle on the Blaster, destroys any sense of realism, because the trigger on a real gun, is pulled with the tip of your index finger. Not so, with the Blaster, unless you want tendonitis in your index finger. If your finger is divided into three segments (tip, middle segment, and the segment closest to the knuckle), you're firing with the segment closest to the knuckle. As you can gather, this makes the gameplay extremely awkward and uncomfortable.

From a mechanical and functional standpoint, the Nyko Perfect Shot easily wins the contest. Unfortunately, the Perfect Shot also has a crippling weakness that negates its gameplay superiority - the undersized Wiimote slot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks great in the picture May 6, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Shot Blaster looks amazing, let's get that out of the way. It is the most BA looking controller for the Wii in my opinion, which is why I bought it. It LOOKS so much cooler than the zapper.

Honestly, it works great. The only problem (which is a huge one) is that the "cord management system (which is just a little hole behind where you put in the wiimote)" doesn't do much good; it just makes the excess cord shorter, it doesn't eliminate it.

The pictures you see of the gun seem to have a magical nunchuck with no chord, because my nunchuck has a cord that sticks out of the back and hangs down awkwardly during gameplay.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misled May 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
i was so pumped while waiting for this and res evil 4 to arrive together in the mail.... Then they came and I discovered that it is completely useless with this game. This gun was designed for darkside and umbrella cron. In 4 you use B to aim and A to fire. The gun only utilizes the B button which does not allow for firing without putting down the nunchuck. In short. DO NOT BUY THIS WITH RES EVIL 4. I just hope that the other two games are not the same when it comes to aim and fire cuz I'll really be pissed if this gun was a complete waste. Looks cool tho:-)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as great as others December 26, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The product is very fun and interesting, and the functionality of the blaster is moderately high... There are a few pros and cons...

I purchased a pair of these guns for a large number of arcde-style shooters I have like Umbrella Chronicles, Darkside Chronicles, House of the dead overkill, 2&3, and others....

Pros:
1. the trigger mechanism is very intuitive and makes the system very reliable
2. The way you insert the gun is you lift a little locking lid and just drop the controller in, scrunching up the wire for the nunchuck behind the wii mote and then cloding the lid. Works great, and no room for guesswork.
3. The extras are decent... the "skin" is a sticker... useless and only applies once. But the Silicone analog button that came with it is GREAT. it looks wonderful on bothe the white and black nunchuckas. Takes some time to get on, but keep at it, tis makes it alot easier to use!

Cons:

1. The two controllers I got are slightly different, one has a matte-like silicone finish on the back where the nunchaka goes, and the other is just a gloss black plaztic, like they forgot it or something...
2: the wire management (like others say) is a ilttle tough to deal with, but is easily remidied by stuffing the wire into the compartemtn behind the wiimote and firly closing the lid.
3. When playing games that require you to use buttons on the wiimote (like the A, +, -, or directional pad) you are unable to comfortable or quickly do it (darkside chronicles and umbrella chronicles (the game this is made for ironically enough) are impossible to play using this remote, or any other like it for that matter...)

Overall these controllers are more fun that they are functionaly... still, for 20 bucks you'd think they would have thought about the "A" button...
