Nyko PerfectShot Pistol Nintendo Wii Review


An alternative Zapper

Before the Nintendo Wii, there has been a virtual drought of “lightgun” games, which required special controllers.  One of the features of the Wii-mote allows you to control an on-screen cursor by pointing at your TV, which translates very well for lightgun games without the limitations of 80s technology.

Nintendo has created their own grip that transforms the Wiimote into a handgun, but requires two hands, much like a Tommygun or crossbow.  Many people have criticized the Zapper for its awkwardness, and it was only a matter of time before a third party invented a better grip.

Nyko is no stranger as a third-party console accessory provider.  They have a flavor or nearly every OEM’s accessories, from battery packs to controllers, and have even debuted innovative add-on products, like their Intercooler.  Nyko now introduces their PerfectShot pistol grip for the Nintendo Wii, which has several improvements over Nintendo’s offering.

Get into the game like never before with the Perfect Shot for Wii. The Perfect Shot is ideal for shooting games on the Wii and is fully compatible with all software designed for the Wii Blaster. The Perfect Shot is designed for one handed operation, giving an pistol-like grip for all your shooting games. The accessory pass-through port also allows for use of Nunchucks and other accessories while the Wii remote is docked in the Perfect Shot. The tactile trigger also provides a smooth, natural activation of the B-button for less hand strain.
