The Good Pistol-shaped Wii remote accessory; allows for nunchuk attachment; affordable.

The Bad Trigger is tougher to shoot than Wii Zapper.

The Bottom Line The Nyko Perfect Shot is an affordable alternative to the Wii Zapper--we just wish it was as comfortable.

We've seen our fair share of Wii accessories by now--most of them meaningless plastic encasings providing no real advantage over just using the Wii remote by itself. But with the Perfect Shot from Nyko, we're finally seeing a practical application for use with most Wii shooter games. The snap-on housing gives your Wii remote the look and feel of a pistol. It retails for under $15.

The Perfect Shot is heavier than you might think, and with the Wii remote loaded in, it feels very solid. The only moving parts you'll find are the trigger and mounting bracket located on the tip of the gun. To load the Perfect Shot, simply slide the Wii remote into the top of the gun, locking the remote into place. We recommend removing the Wii wrist strap before you do so. Then, slide the orange securing mounting bracket over the remote, near the "power" button. Don't worry about scratching your remote--the mounting clip has a padded bottom. The Perfect Shot also supports the use of the nunchuk attachment as well--just clip it in to the bottom of the Perfect Shot's handle.
