Product: Zalman FPS Gun
Provided By: Zalman USA


When I first saw the Zalman FPS Gun I thought it was something you point at the screen and pull a trigger like a Wii remote. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to find that it was similar to a regular mouse with a few improvements, or “enhancements.” Today we will see how this product compares to standard mice, and whether it actually is an improvement in gameplay or not.
