Best first person shooter for the Wii.,
This review is from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Reflex - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
I'll start by saying I have played about 4 hours of multiplayer and the first few missions in single player so far. I will also only talk about the wii specific stuff because Call of Duty 4 has already been positively reviewed a million times and this is the same game. Now to the review.
The Visual end of things is very good for a wii game, I would say better than the Conduit. Its not as pretty as the 360/PS3 version, but if that's your main concern, you shouldn't have bought a wii.
The controls can be customized many ways, so I think it would be hard to find something you didn't like, and in my opinion the wii remote is the best option for fps control on a console.
Sound wise, I don't have a sound system or anything like that but it sounds good to me.
The online multiplayer is the best of its kind on wii. I have encountered little lag so far and the gameplay has been fast and smooth. It takes the fun of World at War for the wii and builds on it.
The only negative things I could say about reflex is that there is no voice chat or spiltscreen multiplayer, neither of which bother me.
I would recommend this game to any fps/action game fan. If you were a fan of World at War for the wii you will love this.

Thanks for the review! I haven't played any fps games on my Wii, but love playing COD 2 on my Mac, so I'm thinking about buying this. How much "moving around" do you need to do since you are aiming at the screen instead of just moving your fingers on a mouse and keyboard? Does it get tiring? Am I just lazy?? Thanks!

You don't have to jump around or any b.s. like that. I just sit down to play. The wii zapper emulates a mouse's controls. I have my reload on the default which is giving the nunchuck a quick shake, which feels natural to me. Everything else operates with the buttons on the nunchuck and zapper. I will say that after a long gaming session my hands do get tired.

No, and actually I'm an idiot and didn't realize the wii zapper and remote are not synonymous. To my knowledge your better off just using the remote and nunchuck combo. I think the zapper makes the controls more awkward.
