I've decided to go ahead with my review of the Nerf/Wii Switch Shot while i impatiently await the arrival of my EAT.
I have spoken to the seller and am expecting some pinpoint sights as a form of compensation.
I managed to find a NISB Switch Shot after keeping an eye on eBay for months, and as you can see from the above picture, they really make it obvious
that this blaster is for Wii. It in theory it's a great idea, bundle a sub-par video game with a cool blaster, and it will sell. The other bonus is that as a Wii remote is standard, it will work for any Wii shooter. I have played both games on the Wii with this, and they are both pretty average.
This review will focus on the blaster element, let me know if you want a serve of the Wii remote side of things.
|Dart blaster option is far superior to Wii blaster|
|Cable Tie fixing, rather than Elite cardboard wrap.|
The build quality of the Switch Shot is actually quite good, there are no creaks, its feels solid in your grip, and is about af powerful as it's cousin the Nite Finder.
But the major flaw, which still seems to be around is a bottom tac rail that is too small to be useful with most attachments (think Hail-Fire).
It's also running the standard 3 dart capacity, which is disappointing, but a well placed shot from this will thankfully only cost you 1.
|With plunger tube housing.|
|And without, the Wii Remote fits perfectly in place.|
The only real let downs are dart capacity and tac-rail, and limited availability in Australia, it isn't worth the shipping costs (Mine was shipped free!).
For these reasons, i score the Switch Shot a 6.5 darts out of 10, only worth getting if you need a complete N-Strike set, like myself.
Hope you all enjoy the review, and keep on Nerfin'.
