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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
