    First of all, which Resident Evil game will you buy? since 2 are on-rail shooters so best controller is wii zapper or perhaps the pump action shotgun (very cool zapper replacement), the other games are resident evil 4 which I personally like best with wiimote and nunchuk but also has gamecube controller support and the others are remakes of old resident evils ( old but still great) you can also choose between classic controller or wiimote with nunchuk but isn't like in Resident evil 4, which suits you the best I suppose

    and for Call of Duty, I use the wii zapper, good for accuracy but very hard to get used to, although you can fully personalize the keys (for Call of Duty Modern Warfare: Reflex, dunno for World at War), you'll see how you like it. and no classic controller can be used on Call of Duty

    i got 2 'hand cannons' with The House Of The Dead: Overkill Big Bang Box. They work great, i'd recommend them over the wii zappers- more freedom and they look hectic. Suits all COD and Resident Evil titles mkayy

    Edit: just google 'Wii hand cannon'

    Welcome to the Forum Gino.

    Firstly, look around before you buy - there are still a few good deals on the Wii, but not as many as at Xmas time. Only get a bundle if you want the games that come with it.

    As well as asking here, go to review sites like gamespot - http://uk.gamespot.com/games.html?t...t=score&dlx_type=all&sortdir=asc&official=all to get an idea of what games are good.

    To start with, stick to the basic controllers untill you have a feel for the whole system and the games you like - otherwise you may find you are spending on things that are not to your taste.

    You get a remote and nunchuck with the Wii system itself. Additional ones can be bought for £25 (remote) and £15 (nunchuck) if you shop around. Less if you are lucky. The Classic controller is useful - you can get for around £11 if you look around. Game are currently selling a copy of the Gamecube controller for £7, but there are mixed reports on it.

    The official Zapper can be bought for £15, bundled with the Links crossbow training game. You can also get a cheap copy of the Zappper from Poundland - for £1 .... Other hand cannons etc can cost a lot more.

    Try them, and when you decide which you like you can get more for multi-player games.

    Hope that helps !

    i plan to buy Call Of Duty 3 and Resident Evil Archives : Zero (because it's a sort of FPS-esque RE game) and Umbrella Chronicles. would the Motionplus controller & nunchuck suffice for those games?

    None of those make use of the motion plus controller, the next FPS that will require the motion plus will be red steel 2 I believe and Resident Evil Zero is a port of a gamecube game, the last one of the main series that still works with the original camera system, you online need wiimote and nunchuk for that game and perhaps I would recommend RE: Darkside Chronicles cause it's better than The Umbrela Chronicles

    Now I have another question, has anyone ever used the ball-trap from the hunting game? cause I was thinking about getting that one for playing Modern Warfare Reflex so I can easely use a custom control scheme withouth the zapper, since all the twisting and turning sometimes doesnt work that great
