Sharpshooter -first impressions

20 Replies 1,196 Views Created 23-02-2011

Just got it today from shopto and I am very happy with it!

There is a lot more weight to it than it looks from all the vids, it feels well made and like it could take a few hits to the ground.

 

It has raised my accuracy in killzone 3 a lot, before I was just aiming from the hip with the move controller but now I find myself looking down the barrel at the screen.

 

If had to complain it would be these 3 minor things.

 

1. Its that nasty red colour

 

2. Navigation controller slips a little

 

3 .could have done with some iron sights on it

 

other than that I would fully recommend this to anyone wanting to enhance there gaming experience.

i have only used it on the killzone 3 demo so i can really comment on other games though i see no reason it wouldn't work for the shoot, i haven't seen any way to map the buttons. also it doesn't seem that there are any slots to mount a scope but i might be looking at it wrong. the fire rate switch seems to have no effect in killzone 3. and i haven't accidentally pressed the move button once as i have it set on hold to crouch

nice one mine is coming from play tomorrow, it was £5 cheaper than shopto.

Game station etc might not be selling them because of replica gun laws.

Ok The sight attachment has been removed from final design. Were it was on the prototype theres a raised patch of plastic.
O is only on the NAV controller not remaped. (x on move is normaly a dupe of MOVE but not allways.)
Square and triangle are on the shooter above the trigger on both sides so south paws are fine. But they are not realy with in thumb range (second hand needed for use.).reload is ether a move function or the button on the bottom of the mag.

Software controlls the button use. Not the gun. Just like DS3.

Connects to the EXPANSION port Not the DOMESTIC USB port unlike what the stupid reviewers said.
Agree with the NAV being loose but if they put any more plastic around it you would not be able to get it in and they have to allow for heat Expansion.
Putting in the move controller in is the hardest part as they have provided a hole for the safety strap to go in, yes safety strap to be used, problem is it gets in the way of pressing buttons (removed strap, solved problem)

Recoil from move force feed back is completely gone. (but is noisey as hell like real guns but I turned it off )

Start and select are in the wrong place.
But move finaly has a big trigger button. none of this baby small kids buttons.
The face buttons of move are still active.

Loving it!!!
So much fun
The colour is not as bad as it looks in the pics but I don't spend much time looking at it anyway.
You don't need a sight, you have a big sight moving on screen.
Digital mapping is brilliant.
Nav controller feels solid.
Whole build feels good.
You don't have to remove the wrist strap from the motion controller \0/

Its going to take me a while to get used to the buttons etc but hey, it took me a while to learn to ride a bike :p

This device is just pure win, the only remotly critical comment I have which is not that big a deal is the the stock is a little small, not short!! the length is fine for me on max but the bit the touches my shoulder could be a little longer....but aside from that its really good, very solid, very accurate and i am so glad i did not go down the cheaper option route.

Quiet happy with it myself, my arm gets tired quite easy so i've only done the shooting range with the sharpshooter on KZ3. No time to play properly until the weekend, but a good purchase!

It's a thumbs up from me too! :smileywink:

 

I had a good hours practice earlier today in a Botzone match on KZ3 to get used to it.

The accuracy is superb, although you do need to take your time playing around with the sensitivity settings to make sure they're just right for your style.

 

I'm looking forward to giving The Shoot a go now to see how it handles that!

my son just got it an hour ago, and i'm pleasantly surprised. i didnt expect alot tbh, i still prefer a DS3, BUT it is accurate, has a nice feel to it and gives the game alot more shelf life. i'll still use a DS3 more often on KZ3 but the gun wont be collecting dust. a good buy imo.

Some thing that was bugging me was that i could not put off the - run, jump and shoot like on DS3 but finaly got it down at last with the pump action of the sharp shooter for fire and trigger finger for jump.

Its all about the games you have or plan to get.

The shoot/time crisiss- dont need any more than a pistol add on.
Killzone 3/socom 4 - need the NAV so need an assult rifle with button remapping style
RE5 GE - none. the controlls are built around long play times with the Move controller. built on top of the Wii verson. with weapon selection over riding camera contolls layout for Move.

Which ones are you considering....
Logic 3 gun does not have enough buttons remapped for killzone 3 so forget that.
The offical gun has 1 extra button thats not on the Move controller.

Have it. Tried it in the KZ3 demo. Definitely going to need to calibrate it properly and map the buttons better. For the rest I love it. I tried it in te timesplotter demo. Was just fun.

I really like it now, i find it difficult to turn/move but aimining is really good.

I can now also calibrate it 1st time every time now perfectly.

 

Some tips:

 

if right handed sit to the left of the screen so the gun is in the middled rather than you.

 

I moved the camera from the top of my telly to on top of the stand, so it much lower this has made a huge difference.

 

No drifting and accurate cursor.

Here in Argentina they released the gray and orange one.

 

My first impression while trying it in the Killzone demo is that it's great. I can't understand how it would be better to play an FPS with a DS3 instead of something that looks like the real article. 

 

Having played Medal of honour for the WII (which actually was great) with a gun attachment, I can say that this Sharpshooter gun is an big improvement, both in accuracy and functionality. And it looks kinda like an MP5 which doesn't hurt either.

 

Another thing I like is that it has some weight and that helps you aim and also with the reality factor, specially if you like to play standing.

 

And it was a great idea to add that button below the magazine to simulate cliping it in.

 

I also tried it with Resident Evil Gold edition and here the results were really bad. I would say it's almost unplayable with the Sharpshooter. With the control layout which doesn't allow you to re-map, I think I will stick with the DS3.
