Links Crossbow Training incl. Zapper (Wii): Shooting Stars
24 June 2013
Summary: ===Total Geek=== I am a huge geek at the best of times, though I do also try my best not to let it take over my life. As such gaming is not something I am huge on. If it was, I'd never see the light of day. I'm pale enough as it is. Being that I am a geek at my core, however, I do have a weak spot. This weak spot comes in the form of anything related to The Legend of Zelda games. I'm a sucker for them.
Pros: Great game for zelda fans, fun games even if you're not a Zelda fan, great price

Summary: This game is wonderful. You do not start out very accurate, but the more you play the better you get! Links Crossbow training is AWESOME! So much fun in the practice round and multi-attack! Breaking records with each other!
Excerpt: "Not being a fan of shoot ‘em ups, I took some persuading to give ‘Link’s Crossbow Training’ a try. Having seen some of the gore fests that my son has played on over the years, that isn’t surprising. However, it soon became apparent from furtive glances around my newspaper, that I was missing a chance to show off my hand-eye coordination, so I bit the bullet (or should I say bolt) and had a go. Before long, I too was fighting over the controller and ...
Excerpt: "Links Crossbow Training on the Nintendo Wii is basically a vehicle for the Wii zapper which is included in the package. Like most new software that is released for the console there it is always introduced with a famous title to help it sell and it was a good idea from Ninty to attach the famous Zelda series to this. First thing to bare in mind is that the title is in very little relation to the rest of the series. Twilight Princess is still the ...
Summary: This is a bundle of Nintendo's official Wii Zapper gun, and a copy of Link's Crossbow Training, also from Nintendo. Now both of these items are pretty damn uninspired and I'm going to tell you why; The Wii Zapper is an ugly, awkward, clunky and uncomfortable light gun for the Wii, into which the nunchuk can be placed at the back. The face buttons on the Wiimote are almost completely inaccessable, and the trigger is in an idiotic position.
Pros: Both are official Nintendo products that are relatively well beta tested.
Cons: wii zapper isnt ergonomic, or accurate. Links Crossbow Training isnt much of a game.

Summary: PLEASE NOTE: THIS REVIEW IS ALSO FEATURED ON CIAO, UNDER MY USERNAME "MONSOONBABY88". Shooting games seem perfect on the Wii, due to the ability to literally point and shoot at a screen. There are plenty of games like this to choose from, many are excellent, including "Dead Space: Extraction" for example. This shooting experience is enhanced when the Wii Zapper adaptor is used.
Pros: Zapper improves accuracy and is comfortable, Links Crossbow Training is a very enjoyable shooter.
Cons: Game is very short, Wii Zapper is not very compact.
Summary: Link's Crossbow Training is a classic Wii game - great to pick up and play for a few minutes, but ultimately lacking in depth and things to do. On the plus side, Crossbow Training is cheap (less than £20 in most places) and it comes with a Wii Zapper which is a plastic casing you fit your Wiimote and Nunchuck into to make it look and feel more like a gun.
Pros: Wiizapper is pretty good
Cons: Doesn't last long enough, repetitive gameplay
