Crossbow Training is a very simple lightgun game wrapped in the trappings of Zelda; it recycles its levels and enemies, ripping its graphics, settings and music from Twilight Princess. That particular rendition of Hyrule is one with which almost every Wii owner is familiar with so it’s with warmth in your heart you’ll re-enter Link’s world, this time blasting your way through the towns and villages with a semi-automatic crossbow.
