Zapping Zelda

The Zapper comes with Links Crossbow Training, a light gun game based on Twilight Princess. I was prepared to really like this game but it turns out it has some serious problems. It lacks a calibration option like the one in Ghost Squad so where you aim on screen isnt necessarily where the pointer goes. This becomes much more apparent when you are aiming with the Zapper then with just the wiimote, since you have much more of a feeling where the pointer should be when you are holding a gun then just resting a remote in your lap.

On top of that in the stages where you have to move Link he turns painfully slow and is hard to control. I dont see this game being a good choice to pack in with the Zapper since it does a terrible job convincing you that that the Zapper can enhance the gameplay experience. If anything it makes you wonder why you should use the Zapper in the first place. Luckily this wasnt my introductions to the Zapper so I know how great it can be. But for most gamers this will be their first and maybe only experience with the Zapper.
