Criticism

The Super Scope was not a commercial success. It was criticized for being too clunky, difficult to use, and awkward to hold. It was known to cause eye strain and arm pain, and had poor battery life, consuming its batteries very quickly. The game library for the Super Scope was also extremely limited, with only 17 compatible games on 11 cartridges.

The Super Scope is a featured as an item in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It can be fired by rapidly tapping the attack button or by holding down the attack button for a more powerful attack. It is interesting to note that none of the characters in either game hold the Super Scope as instructed in the manual.
