When the Wii Zapper was announced at E3 2007, there was a collective groan here at Eurogamer Dungeons. As a plastic cradle to hold a Wii Remote and Nunchuk, we wondered exactly how it was going to offer more value than one of those Wii accessory packs that you find in bargain bins across the land. Or just holding it differently. After all, is Wii Sports Golf really that much more like playing golf if you've got a tiny plastic golf club attached to your Wii Remote?
Thankfully, lovable old Reggie announced at the same time that it was to come with a pack-in game, Link's Crossbow Training, so even if the Wii Zapper was a waste of plastic, at least we'd get a game with it, right?
