The chances are that if you plan on using the Wii U's GamePad in 'only if necessary' situations, then you'll be looking to other controllers for a more traditional gaming experience. This isn't to say the the GamePad is lacklustre, but as of yet there have been few innovative ways to use the device aside from Off TV play (which itself is genius) and NintendoLand/Zombi U.

As for myself, I bought the Wii U Pro Controller with SNES Virtual Console titles in mind, and from there on I can use it when new games come along that benefit from it. I generally use a Wii Remote when playing New Super Mario Bros or NES Virtual Console titles as I prefer that minimalist feel of older controllers.

I can only echo the many positive sentiments about this Pro Controller - it is one of Nintendo's best. THE best? Probably not, but it's up there.

It is light enough to hold for long periods of time (which I've found is more comfortable than the Game Pad), but not so light that the product feels cheap or fragile. The 'D' pad is excellent as usual; I expected nothing less. Both the analogue sticks feel quite similar to those on the GamePad, while the action buttons feel solid. On the basis of Virtual Consoles games, I've found the A-B-X-Y buttons to be a little too small for my ageing thumb, but this is likely because I'm so used to the larger, flatter SNES buttons.

Contrary to others opinions, I think the gloss finish aids maintenance as you can wipe away grease very easily with a cloth, whereas stippled/textured moulds usually retain dirt. As such, grease can be swept away with real ease.

Charging is completed in around 4-hours, and since it uses a standard USB-to-mini cable, you can even plug it into a PC and give it a boost from there.

Brilliant controller, excellent ergonomic design and an ESSENTIAL purchase for any Wii U owner looking to play with a traditional Joy pad.

Durable high build quality with responsive controls.

Similar to the XBOX one - but I think this feels better!

It is of very high quality, and battery life is so looooong that I've charged mine ONCE and still going weeks later!

Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart and Deus Ex with this are brilliant - I'd say better than the Game Pad experience (though that IS very good!)

And this is numero uno for Virtual Console titles especially beat em ups.

I picked one up for £28 from CEX (a 2nd hand gaming/DVD store). Arrived on Wednesday, and all i can really say is wow. It feels like a Xbox 360 control pad, which is known to be one of the most comfortable to use controllers of the last generation. The only issue i've got is the position of the A, B, X + Y buttons, i'm not used to them being there.

Playing games like Monster Hunter, Wind Waker HD and Super Mario 3D Land feels a heck of a lot better and more enjoyable than using the tablet/nunchuck controls as before.

But other than that, a fine piece of kit none the less.

I love it!
It's battery life is incredible, helpfully coming with its own charging cable. However, you do need to have the Wii U turned on in order to charge it, which seems like a big oversight.
The buttons, joysticks, and triggers are almost identicle to the gamepad's, but just a bit more tough and clicky - which is a good thing.
It's very comfortable in the hands, though it might be less so if you have smaller hands like me. I feel I have to stretch my thumb across a touch too far for the d-pad and BAXY buttons. If they were moved across to the edges a few centimeters it would be better. All the other buttons are fine, and even with this, I don't feel strained in long play sessions.

Overall, this will be the main controller I use from now on for many Wii U games!

The Wii U Pro controller is very comfortable to hold. Initially I found it slightly less so than the Xbox 360 controller (to which it is similar). After a while, however, I came to prefer this - I like the positioning of the two analogue sticks (above the buttons and the d-pad). The shaping and feel is also very nice.

The lack of analogue trigger buttons is a slight let down, but since the Wii U doesn't have many games for which this function is useful/necessary, it's not a big deal.

Nintendo has had a variety of different controller types and shapes over the years (contrast this with Playstation controllers, which have stayed largely the same). This one is quite conformist (compared to the N64 and Gamecube controllers, for example), but is good nevertheless. Retail price at £40 is high, but no more so than other official controllers for other systems.

Simple plug play charge and play wireless, could be cheaper but £30 is the going rate at the minute, simple enough to set up.

Nice feeling game pad. On par with the Xbox 360 one but lighter. Can get a good 18 hours gameplay on one charge. And comes with a good quality and lengthy USB cable to charge with. Useful to play multiplayer Mario Kart with. You will need to find a USB port that can charge this, as you will have to have the Wii u switched on to do this can't be done when the Wii u is on standby. This item has dropped in price since I bought mine so keep an eye on prices. Will only recommend the proper Nintendo products for piece of mind so payed the premium price for this.
