Well, contrary to reviews...I think the zapper is great. Unlike third party guns, the zapper has a slot for you to set the nunchuck in, which is great for a game that doesn't have rails. If you were to buy a third party, such as the Nyko gun, you would have to have the gun, and then the nunchuck awkwardly in your other hand. I've tried both, and the zapper just feels right. Sure, the Nyko and other related guns may look cooler, but the zapper gets my vote.
