Getting Zapper... now which game to go with it?

Hey all,

I'm going to be getting my girlfriend 2 zappers for her Wii. I'm looking to throw in a game with it. I want this game to be very replayable, good multiplayer, easy to pick up, multiple modes as well.

She loves shooters, but I'm looking to reserve CoD/MoH for the Xbox and PS3. Seems like a waste to get those games for the Wii.

Here's what I'm down to:

Resident Evil (Darkside or Umbrella Chronicles)
House of Dead 2 and 3
Ghost Recon

What else would be good options? I'm leaning towards House of Dead as it seems very replayable and just fun for multiplayers. Simple enough for anyone to jump in.

Don't buy Zappers, get Nyko Sure Shots. They are much better guns.

As far as games, I'd also recommend:
House of the Dead: Overkill
Martian Panic!

You might want to check out Ghost Squad. It's extremely short, but many people seem to love playing it repeatedly.

Yep I second ghost squad, short game, but the replay value is near unlimited. So many modes of play, different types of weapons and multiple unlockable costumes/difficulties.

Listen to this guy.

The Zappers are terrible.

I also agree about Ghost Squad, very fun game and replayable. The Link's target game that comes included with the zapper is also really fun in my opinion. Maybe I just suck at shooting games but I found Umbrella Chronicles to be frustratingly difficult at times.

Now Playing:

:wiiu: Armillo, Guacamelee, Assassin's Creed 4

I really liked House of the Dead Overkill, definitely give it my recommendation. Also both Dead Space Extraction and Ghost Squad are great!

i liked Overkill as well. It's rife with F-bombs and B-movie cheese. I have not played the others. I heard good things about Dead Space Extraction. Sounds like there isn't a lack of good shooting games :)
