Gunslingers Review (Nintendo Wii)

Gunslingers is a Nintendo Wee game that feels like it’s made mostly to sell the two Wild West style revolvers that hold your Wiimote. In fact, the two revolvers that come with the game are actually a better reason to get this pack than the game itself.
Each of the revolvers will hold a single Wii remote and are motion plus compatible. You slide the wiimote into position and secure it with a cross piece. In the back there’s a small compartment to put the wrist strap in so it’s not hanging about getting in the way.
The revolvers have two triggers, a main trigger for the B button and a second trigger that activates the top slide which activates the A button, in the game that’s for reloading. The revolvers don’t block access to any of the buttons so you can use them for any shooting game and you don’t even need to pull that second trigger if you don’t like it, you can simply press the A button or slide it by hand.
Gunslingers itself is a fairly simple light gun-like game. It’s a fully on rails shooter (a la House of the Dead, Time Crisis, etc). Each of the game’s levels sees you simply moving from position to position involuntarily and shooting whatever enemies or targets happen to be in the way. Don’t shoot the civilians or you’ll lose big points. Headshots count for extra points as do streaks give you a score multiplier. But the headshot registering is sketchy at best. I got a gut in the throat and it counted and I swear one in the shoulder did as well.
