    Just wondering, I have resident evil 4 on Wii and thinking of getting a Light Gun or some sort. What does it do? Does it just press B or something?

    No....so you see the light gun is essentially a holster for your wii-mote so you can get that arcade feel when playing rail shooters such as RE: The Umbrella Chronicles or House of Dead 2 & 3... Never exactly understood what is wrong with just holding the wii remote, seeing as it works really well for this genre of games w/out having to buy some cheapy piece of plastic....

    Out of the corner of your eye
    Umbrella Chronicles is easier to play without the lightgun frame.

    drain cash out of potential buyers who seem to think it's ok to be paying extortionate prices for a piece of plastic...

    I got the crossbow add on, i mainly got it though for the crossbow training. still a lot of money but i play the wii for fun even if its harder, i got a much more pleasant experience using it. i would suggest make your own Many people ive seen on the internet have working to the same effect.
