Motion sensor shooting at the expense of intensity

First off the max amount of people able to play in a match together is 5 on 5 because that's the most the Wii can process. And it struggles with that.
Putting aside the fact that you would be playing with almost twice the amount of people in matches on the PS3 or 360, using a motion sensor controller makes everything a bit slower. Aiming for the kill, turning around, ect. If your attacked from behind your basically dead.
But there is a catch to playing this game on the Wii. You can use the classic controller(Gamecube controllers work). Doing that, it's basically like playing a regular shooter, and all your motions, I'm assuming, would be at full speed, giving whomever has the classic controllers the advantage over the guys who are using motion sensors.
If your going to stick with the motion sensors cause you enjoy the concept, I would suggest getting a zapper. Without it, the motion sensor controllers have terrible ergonomics.
The last downside other than of course sacrificing graphics playing on the wii, is the server for online play. The wii's server was unbearable. It would take me a third of my time playing just trying to connect to a game. And the bad part is it would tease you. You would get into a lobby. The lobby would fill. The map would load. And then boom, the server would crash and spit everyone back into the lobby saying, "there was a problem connecting with the server". I know it wasn't just me because other people with mics were complaining about it. Once back into the lobby, the lobby would close, then you would have to try and find a game all over again. Making attempt after attempt sometimes taking up to 11 minutes. Hopefully the server just has some kinks being it's a new game, but if not, theres always campaign mode.
Putting aside those cons, I would say I definitely recommend this game on the wii(can't wait to play the PS3 version) only on the basis that you have a classic controller, or a zapper. And hopefully the servers get better.

They may have black ops for a cheaper price for the wii (which is a adventage to me) but shooting games from nintendo make you feel like your acturally in it! And take this as a advantage. Black ops dosent have those lags you get from xbox and ps3. (DS is just not good period) It has all your guns. Still campaign. And cheaper price. Rent this game now.
