The Hand Cannon is the most perfect arcade rail-shooter addon for ANY system i've had. Well balance grip means that the remote isn't overly top-heavy in your hand, sites for those important boss fights and perhaps the most important factor...real arcade action feel.
This is perfect for anyone who plays "the House of the Dead" games, but is also great with "Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles" "Ghost Squad" and is acually marginally better than the zapper on "link's crossbox training"
P.S to reload don't bother pushing the A button just shake the Gun it is alot easyer. thanks for reading!
This, however, doesn't give you hand cramp, has iron sights! (made of plastic though ;-), good balanced weight and doesn't feel cheap.
It also has a hidden cable area if you want to connect a nunchuk.
...recommended for on-rails shooters.
It doesn't have a pass-through socket for the nunchuck like the perfect shot, but it has a hole for the cable instead, so you can still attach it. It also has space in the handle for the Wiimote strap, so you don't have to remove it like the Perfect Shot.
I like this a lot, but it may be too big if you have smaller hands. I give this 5 stars, and the Nyko Perfect shot 4.
P.S. The game is awesome too.
The trigger movement feels right.
The grip is firm and pleasant, with a groove in the back to allow for the nunchuck cord, should you use it. The gun itself does not house the nunchuck and you will have to hold it with the other hand.
Not that you will want to, because the only problem with this gun is that as big as it is, it is somewhat unbalanced with all of the weight of the remote falling in front of your hand, and you will probably wield it two handed.
This hardly improves accuracy, as the manufacturer claims.
It is not a real problem per se, but the tip will be shaking a little as you shoot, and if the game you're playing has any action mapped to the remote shaking motion you might be triggering it more often than you'd like to.
This is a real issue with the very game this gun was made for, House of the Dead Overkill, which has a too sensitive shaking reload action.
It is definitely the game's fault, not the gun's, as it manifests itself even with the bare remote, but this gun makes it worse.
I recommend this gun for many shooting games on the Wii, as it is a great product of its kind, but I suggest you don't use it with those games that implement motion sensing superficially.

Bought for HotDO game... BANG BANG BANG.
Heavy to hold... but big guns ARE, right?
Lots of fun.
A little front heavy so it gets tiring but still, a real gun would be even heavier so this is a nice impression. Playing House of the Dead 2 & 3 with this baby is amazing. Read morePublished on 12 Jan. 2013 by Alex
