Is it just me or does it look like the 007 logo a little? Perhaps a new Goldeneye?

I would rather buy a 3rd party Wii remote gun than this.

Why on earth did they put the analog control stick on the back of the gun?

Seriously, all you are buying is the mold that holds your controller and nunchuck. It actually is a good idea at $19 this will allow younger players to get a Wii gun controller for cheap. I want a actual Wii gun. I can see this one losing its ability to secure the controllers by taking them out and putting them back in over time.

at least they named it appropriately. when you buy something called the "wii zapped," what are you really expecting?

You misunderstood. What I meant was why put the analog stick on the back of that zapper? That placement seems like a bad spot for the stick. I'd rather just hold the analog stick in one hand and the zapper in the other. IMO putting the two together like that seems like a bad design choice.
