It is certainly one of the best games I've played on the Wii.

The only thing that slightly let it down was the controls; although the Wiimote functions acceptably as a pointing device, it's accuracy and responsiveness isn't great. Interestingly using the Hand Canon made it even worse for me.

Anyway I hope they are indeed working on a sequel, as it's certainly revived the franchise for me.

As with the previous post I agree completely. Would love to see a sequel perhaps in Las Vegas as the characters mentioned they were heading there it would also be the perfect location for this Tarantion esque style of game.

Yeah, I completely agree with all of you. I can remember giving a poster a lot of grief when this was announced saying that it was gonna be more of the same, pretty much what the wii does constantly, but I borrowed it off a mate and played it non-stop for a whole weekend. Took a while for me to get into, but when I started getting those combo's and unlocking the sweet weapons it all clicked for me.

I'll no doubt pick this up on the cheap one weekend, I'd love to have my own copy. Plus, the soundtrack IS absolutely awesome.

Great that it sold well, this type of game should be encouraged!
Its such a break from the poor japanese to english translations that hamper the others! (Don't come, don't come! etc.) :lol:

Also, I liked the Hand Cannon gun adapter! I think it really adds to the experience- haven't enjoyed a light gun game this much since Virtua Cop2 8)
