    No, but Link's Crossbow Training is pretty good value for the $20 and a nice crafted piece of plastic.

    I would say no, from what I have heard, playing games with the zapper can be tiresome.

    Look into similar devices, like the Perfect Shot from Nyko, looks like it works better.

    I've had some fun with it these past few days.
    Feels really neat.

    I just wish there was a mode on the game where you could just run around and blast stuff.

    As you can see the, Wii Zapper has mixed reviews. I would say don't get it, for $20, it's not worth it. Using the Wii Remote the way it is without these plastic add-ons is the best choice for me.

    I have been very happy and impressed with my zapper and I've had it for about a month now.

    I think it really depends on what game you are going to be playing. For Links crossbow training the wii-mote actually works better, but for Ghost Squad the zapper is almost a must. I would say go ahead and buy it because the game is actually pretty fun and if you don't like the zapper that much then get the Nyko perfect shot.

    It depends on the game being played. It plays very good with Ghost Squad.

    I tried the zapper on some earlier game like Gundam 0079, it works perfectly great and yes please get a zapper if you like shooting game. I assume that the zapper will work fine for Metroid.
    unfortunately I own a Japanese set, and I am not able to get my hands on metroid

    The Zapper is... alright. I got it for Christmas and have been playing some Medal of Honor with it, but I argue that I do better without it. Like everyone said above my reply, it all depends on the game you get.

    my ONLY complaints are that wrapping the nunchuk is annoying and that it takes some getting used to
