Wii / GameCube Wireless Micro Control Pad
still working, since 2010
I know about 3, or 4 years is not a long time, but for a gamestop product, it sure is for me. It is kinda small, and lasts longer than you might think at first, but it is very durable, like its counterpart. If you still can find it in your local gamestop, you should buy it. Same goes for gamestop's wired gamecube controller.
I don't know why there are so much bad reviews, because my controller works perfectly and it has no problems. The design is really cool, and the controller is easy to use. Get this controller fast if it is in a Gamestop near you, because these controllers are hard to find.
Really good controller
I got this controller yesterday, and I have been using it with OoT Wii, and so far, it's been pretty good.
I bought this controller not too long ago to use for some GC games on my Wii and it works well, the design is good, but a lot of times the "L" and "R" buttons wont work and sometimes the the control stick doesn't work either and I have to un-plug it and re -plug it (the wireless adapter). other than that it works very well.
Not what I expected!
I have purchased two of these controllers. The first one I had for about 1.5 years, used it about 12 times in that length of time and all of a sudden it just stopped working. I just purchased another only to find that this one fresh out of the box WITH new batteries was DOA.
I went back to the store and purchased a wired version of the same controller and so far so good.
So I bought this controller about a year ago, and it is working wonderfully! The only problem i found was when you are playing a game it will take you a tad to the left. Other than that, a great controller.
when i frist got it it turned out good then affter a few days it stared to mess up my games.
I bought this controller last year and it still works.The only thing is that you have to buy the batteries.
A Roll of the Dice
Your taking a chance with this controller. I bought 2 of these controlers. One the control stick crumbled and the C Stick wouldnt respond. The other the control stick would get stuck and I couldnt get the batetery to last over 5 minutes. But about 2 years earlier I got this for my friend and he still uses it today. Thought if you really want a good gc controller, Id try to find an official one used.
Great little Controler
I was looking for a cheap wireless GC controller for my Wii. Found this one, so I thought I would take a chance. Well that was 3 years ago; still works great, battery last a long time. The only issue was the rubber top on the C-stick came off when my kids were using it one. But it still works great, not too hard on the thumb. Anyways I am currently looking for a new one, with no luck at the moment.
