I am not friend of FPS games but I have to say I was very positively surprised by this game when I found out I can play it using my old wii remote and that is very different experience! You can point your weapons laser sharp this way, cool. COD Ghosts has wii remote support too which surprisingly makes Wii U the best platform for this game! I understand graphics will be better on PS4 but this unique way of control is awsome.
