Default Best Wii Shooters

I love the RESIDENT EVIL franchise, such as RE4, but the Wii versions of the game still have the "stop and shoot" that has become so distracting.

Especially when little no name games such as Death Jr Root of Evil (a nice game in it's own right) have made the "run and gun" method of firing in one direction while moving in a completely different direction a thing of beauty, the RE4 games have become less fun to play, even with the added control and realism of the wii pointer.

What games do you love? don't have to be shooters.

I've only tried a few games, but I can't get the Wii to be anywhere near accurate and feel like I want to play. The plastic gun cases that hold the wii remote are just way off in the pointer. I don't know if there are any dedicated gun controllers that aren't ones that plug in the standard remote, but the 2 I've tried suck arse.

I think the definition of shooter must've changed. I thought shooters were like Raiden or Radiant Silvergun? Well, I was going to pop on and suggest Lords of Thunder.

I haven't played the RE4 sort of shooter in ages. I found the remote to be accurate enough for Trauma Center and that requires some somewhat exact pointing and movement. I do think I might pick up Goldeneye. I hear good things about it though it isn't exactly the same sort of game as RE4 either.

The Conduit is pretty fun, and can be had for cheap used.

I don't use any gun, I find the wii controller to be plenty good, with the trigger.

It's a wii. You want a great first person shooter, buy an xbox or PS3. That being said. I want Goldeneye.

I'm telling you, Death JR on wii blows anything on the x-box out of the water. The "X-BOX" feel of RE4 is what is prompting this thread.

I value your opinion, but you obviously haven't played a good shooter on the wii. Death Jr is a cartoony kids game on the wii, but it's run and gun with the wii pointer is more realistic than anything xbox or any non pointer can even come close to.

Death Jr is better than a lot of the stuff I see labeled as "Rated M" (which is just marketspeak for "Made to Appeal to 13 Year Old Boys").

....Kinda my point IP. Thanks for backing me up.

Yeah.

That KIDS GAME shooter is way more BAD ASS than RE4, (one of my favorite games ever), call of duty, or anything else that uses that xbox controller because of the wii remote's ability to point and shoot targets while your character runs wherever you want.

PLAY IT. You obviously don't get it.

With all due respect IP, I am not frustrated that I can't find bad assed wii shooters, I AM FRUSTRATED BECAUSE MY 8 YEAR OLD'S KIDS GAME IS BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF WHAT XBOX HAS TO OFFER, SO I WANT TO KNOW WHAT ELSE IS OUT THERE! I am just starting to search, I will let you know what I find.
