It seems that you'll need to shake the gun in order to reload... and you'll need to shake it too when an opponent grabs you, like the 1st boss "Justice"...
You have to shake to reload? While shooting off-screen -or covering the sensor with your other hand- wasn't the greatest way to reload it was at least consistent.

We at the amusement trade e-Newsletter are completing a feature on the recent buzz around the LindBergh Sega architecture. In completing this feature we would like to ask those in the consumer games sector some searching questions. We would like to report your answers and look forward to your reply:
1. SEGA stated as far back as 2004 that the CHIHIRO would not have its content converted to consumer platforms after ‘OutRun 2’, and that with the new LindBergh they continued this comment, no VF4 or VF5 on Xbox or PS2 and no ‘Daytona 3’ or ‘Afterburner 3’. Why did the consumer media still run the story as if this had anything to do with consumer releases?
2. Is there concern by media in the consumer field that players are becoming more interested in the new arcade stuff. Never before have so many fan sites run the LindBergh story, and for a number of sites that never covered arcade all of a sudden found House of the Dead 4 one of the most interesting stories since E3!
3. Would the lack of VF4/5, HotD4 and AB3 on the console scene mean that consumer media will now have to look again at amusement / arcade coverage?
4. With news of the Taito and Namco PC arcade releases (Counter Strike Neo and Half Life 2 Arcade) offering new amusement opportunities to popular consumer PC content, could you see arcade gaming as a new vein of player interest?
5. With the success of prize tournament gaming in the amusement field, but the failure of the Xbox Arcade tournament and PS2 equivalent, do you think the new Next Generation consoles can compete against the million dollar prize payout of games like the arcade Golden Tee series?
Thank you for your time in answering these points.
