Hold your horses....not worth buying yet
on November 1, 2010
There is a bunch of plastic add-ons for the PS Move already, most of them are the same thing, just a different shell to hold your PS Move controller, hit the trigger button. Should be simple in theory. Unfortunately, the makers of games for which this add-on would seem to make sense, don't know how to layout button commands in a sensible way. You must remember, these are just pieces of plastic. Your PS Move controller is doing all the work. These just make you feel more like your actually holding a gun and not a wand. The problem is...there is four games out currently that would seemingly benefit from this add-on. The Shoot, Time Crisis Razing Storm, Cabelas Dangerous Hunts 2011 and Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition. Ok, Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition uses the Move Button (the button on top of the controller) not the T Button (the trigger button). It is the T button which this gun hits to trigger the PS Move's trigger button. Makes sense right. So that eliminates Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition completely. Time Crisis Razing Storm works but you need to push the move button for reloading and shielding. This plastic gun add-on actually makes that more difficult. Its easier if you have just the PS Move and use both hands. One on the trigger, one on the move button. You have more physical control that way and your accuracy will be far better. Time Crisis Razing Storm is also crippled by the fact that you can't use the Navigation Controller and PS Move Controller together. That would solve the shield problem. You could use the gun for the trigger and the navigation controller for the shield/reload. Sadly, Time Crisis Razing Storm recognizes the Navigation Controller as a seperate Dualshock 3 controller and assumes you have a second player who wants to play. Rather then a Navigation/PS Move dual setup. Cabelas Dangerous Hunts 2011 is a first person hunting sim. It actually comes with its own IR light gun if you buy the bundle. So you don't even NEED the PS Move. I unfortunately have not played the game, so I do not know how it fairs with the PS Move controls in the game and with this add-on attached. THE SHOOT...ok, that game was made with this in mind. The Shoot actually has a picture of this add-on on the back of it's case. So Sony and the developers of that game made sure that the controls were perfect for this add-on. It works just as you would expect, you use the trigger and you shoot. Nice and easy. So, Resident Evil 5: Gold virtually doesn't work with this (unless you purposely want to make the controls harder), Time Crisis Razing Storm works with this but it makes your accuracy and comfort level worse, Cabelas Dangerous Hunts 2011 unfortunately I'm not sure yet, and THE SHOOT works perfect. Messy huh. It's not the add-ons fault. Its just a piece of plastic to hold your PS Move and its built very well, I wouldn't step on it or anything. It's not built THAT well. But the PS Move fits snug and the gun feels nice in the hand. But there simply isn't enough reason to buy it. You can easily enjoy THE SHOOT without the gun. I just hope developers will use a little more common sense when making their games to support this.
