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 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 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent product for Rail Shooters January 25, 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I KNOW people have mentioned that this gun is not RE4 compatible. To be absolutely clear, NO gun accessory is. This is not the fault of the function of the gun but in the GAME ITSELF. Do to having to press and hold B and tap A to fire (A is action button), it's the GAME that won't allow it. Not that you CAN'T use it, it's just extremely uncomfortable and painfully difficult. This gun is designed for RAIL SHOOTERS; ie: Umbrella chronicles, House of the Dead.

That being said, Here's the upside:

I really do like this gun. The feel is MUCH more comfortable than the Wii Zapper, (which I also own). The clearance between your hand and the nunchuck pod is larger so I don't find myself getting cramped during long game sessions. Also, the trigger is spring assisted and interacts with the remote's B trigger much differently than the zapper. The action is nice and smooth and works well for intense gunplay games.

The Downside to this is as follows:

First off, there is no clip function to keep the nunchuck pod fastened firmly to the handgun portion. The end simply slides into it like a puzzle piece. This is problematic because I tend to hold it military style, (butt pressed into my body between pectoral and shoulder). Holding it this way tends to force the pod to slide up and disassemble from the handgun part. A fastener or even black tape can easily fix this, but I'd prefer to see a manufacturer's clip, (like the remote's battery door).
The remote itself is a tiny bit floppy in it's seating, so it's not too tight. Not a real problem just a personal annoyance.

Lastly, (this is also personal), The trigger travel is a little bit too long for me.
