When the Sonic Scredriver first hit the office, my first thought was ‘oh, this looks kinda alright. A bit like a lightsaber’. Cue me swishing it around, making ‘whoom’ noises, and generally annoying everyone. But then Seamus sauntered in and lost his mind. ‘WHOAH! A Wii-Remote Sonic Screwdriver!’ It was then that I realised you had to be a Dr Who fan to understand why this device was interesting.
It was designed to be played with the latest Doctor Who game on the Wii, which is utterly abysmal, but it can, of course, be used with any other game on the Wii. We would suggest, however, that it is completely unsuitable for any game that uses the the Wii-Mote in a ‘NES style’ horizontal manner, as it’s completely uncomfortable at best – practically impossible at worst.
