Don't shy away from that control scheme for this game; the pointer works beautifully. Pandora's Tower and Sin & Punishment illustrate the Wiimote's strengths, so don't let the general "motion controls suck" pre-conception stop you from playing Wiimote+Nunchuck. The controls with it are very fluid and the game was built around them; I know new players tend to try to stick to traditional control schemes, but do yourself a favor and play with the Wiimote and Nunchuck.
I started playing with the wii u gamepad last night and I could tell right away this would work way better with the wiimote. It's not easy to aim at all with the second analog stick. I would've switched to my wiimote but it was in a box, I was laying in bed and I'm lazy.
I'll definitely use it next time I play though. I've usually loved motion controls when they were used well in games like Skyward Sword or No More Heroes.
I definitely echo the sentiment that I started with the gamepad and then switched to the wiimote instead. Both control schemes are kind of wonky, but the wiimote just works better and is a bit more intuitive.
