Wii Classic Controller
This controller is great and is easy to use. Be sure to get all buttons loose before playing because some buttons are hard to push in, but overall, it is a great product.
This controller is awesome because you can play classic games like zelda and donkey kong and can also play newer WiiWare games and also games like Super Smash Bros Brawl. Eveything about this controller is awesome.
First of all the "1's" were because those categories didn't really apply to this (sound and graphics). This is totally awesome. I originally got it for my grandpa, because I bought him space invaders off the virtual console, and it only supported this. I use it for alot of things- It works with most, if not all virtual console titles (I have Space invaders, Sonic the hedgehog, and mappy) and some wiiare titles (like Gyrostarr) and a selection of discs (SSBB, Mario Kart Wii, 007 Goldeneye, Black Ops). It is awesome, and it has a good feel, like a classic controller. Very good buy!
Poor design great functionality
I highly recommend this controller for your VC games except your N64 games. I would use a Gamecube controller for your 64 VC games. But, this controller is excellent for your other games say for instance NES,SNES,Genesis,etc. Works great for games like Brawl and Mario Kart Wii. The controller has kind of a good and bad design at the same time. The design works well if you are playing your games using the D-Pad. If you have bigger hands like me it feels kind of odd at first using the analog sticks and you will have to position your hands accordingly. Also what I did was I purchased the NYKO grip which really helped in my situation. The controller is of good construction. With this being a 1st party controller its easy to note it has durable plastic and does not have the cheap feel to it that a lot of 3rd party controllers do. The D-Pad is completely perfect which Nintendo has been known for a lot of years.
This controller is great
Dont listen to anybody that says this is a bad controller cause this is no were near bad this controller is PERFECT even if it does have a wire at the end of it it doesnt bother u at all you forget it even there. When i first held the controller in my hand it brought me that nastalgia feeling it feels soo much like the SNES controller but soo much better. This controller is well worth the money you will not be dissapointed at all. the dual sticks at the bottom make me feel like im using a ps3 controller..If u play brawl alot or mario kart this is great. BUT if u already have a GC controller then you dont really need this. Thank you nintendo for creating such a brilitant controller. Again the classic controller gets a well deserved 5/5.....
the classic experience
I love this controller because as much as i like the motion aspects of the Wii, sometimes its nice to just sit and relax while playing. I dont always need to be jumping around and the classic controller gives me the ability to choose between interactivity or relaxation. I always use this controller for any game hat allows it. This controller also has a nice sleak design and is comfortable to hold and manuever. My favorite feature is probably the simple fact that i dont have to worry about the sensor bar, I can move around as i please without the game being interrupted because im out of range. In my eyes, this is the only way to play Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. Using this controller brings me back to the nes and snes days of gaming I recommend this to anyone who plays video games.
This is a decent controller. I think of it as the xbox 360 version of a controller. It is nice to have if you don't feel like getting up to play or if you have leg problems. The bad thing about this controller is that it isn't able to be used in all wii games. Mainly sports games and some action games are compatible with this controller. You don't have to worry about the sensor bar for the wii because the game knows that your using the classic controller and doesn't try to sense the wii remote. This is like playing the xbox 360 version of a game only you are playing wii with wii graphics. For the price this feature to the wii is it is definitely worth buying and you will enjoy it with friends or even on your own. This isn't as amazing as the wiimote but it is a cool and fun feature of the wii!!
The Wii classic controller is a great controller to have even if you don't have any virtual console games because it can also be used to play a few Wii games such as Super Smash Bros Brawl, and Mario Kart Wii. The controller is very comfortable and feels like a Super Nintendo controller so its feels like a your playing a old school game console. I personally really enjoy playing Super Smash Bros Brawl with this controller because I personally hate using the Wii remote for fighting games. Bottom line you should buy this controller even if you don't play virtual console games because it can be most usefull when you don't expect it.
Good, but not excellent!
Don't get me wrong, if you are looking for a more classic gaming way to play the Wii, look no further. Think of this as a more up-to-date Gamecube Controller, but more compact. I have found this very useful in certain games like Legend of Zelda, Mario Kart Wii(although I prefer the Wii Wheel), and Super Mario Galaxy, which takes a lot of the tension out of doing special maneuvers. The couple of problems I have with the game is it still uses your Wiimote's battery, instead of just plugging in a wireless port at the top. It is also very small, so your hands can tend to slide, and if you aren't the neatest person, you could lose it fairly easily. All in all though, for the price it is, it is worth it if you love the Classic Gaming, but if you are using this just to escape from certain games, it won't work, as in some games(like Mario Kart Wii) you are limited to certain tricks, etc.Buy this, you won't be let down. Rock on!
Better Than You'd Think
I Bought this the same day that i bought my ps3 energizer charge station (check my review... that product is great!) and im impressed. Dont pay any attention 2 any bad reviews of this thing. While i havent had a chance to use it extensively for any period of time, right out of the box its clear that this is a better alternative than the side ways wii-mote, or gamecube controller! While does feel strange at first due to lack of anything to really grab onto...unlike the ps3. (it has a feel similar to older nintendo conrollers... duh) The buttons do take a little more of a press than the normall wii-mote due to the fact that the buttons stick out farther, but this is better in look and feel than the wireless classic controllers out there! This thing is way better than u think... :-) Also dont buy this anywhere other than eb games/ Gamestop they are the best as far as being cooperative and friendly when looking for important gaming accessories!
