So, I read about the Gamespot 7.5 'controversy' and how apparently the reviewer was playing it wrong. That you never use the IR sensor to aim, but, in practice, just use the gyro in the wiimote and hold the controller perpendicular to the ground as if you were holding a bow/slingshot and that he had failed to do so.
However, after playing the game, I swear that the cursor movement is far, far more precise and, more importantly, quicker, when aiming directly at the screen. I tried both ways and, after 20 hours in, I can't help but believe that anyone who was slamming the GS reviewer for having played the game 'wrong' is totally talking BS. I swear this thing does use the IR, or am I just crazy? I mean, I have to pretty much recalibrate every single time I aim the remote at the screen but, as soon as I do so, everything works fine. Did anyone else feel this way?
