4.0 out of 5 stars An essential purchase, but slightly flawed 20 July 2013

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars My son's birthday present. Best present ever! 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase
I know absolutely nothing about computer games and the gadgets, but thankfully my son does. A fantastic value for money. Easy to use, even for mums like me that have never even held one of the controller's before. I found it easy to use (shock horror) and light. I found it easy to work out the button's and played one of the games without having to ask my boffin son how does this work. The controller it's self is lovely to look at and got flashy lights at the front which impressed me. For the price what a terrific price. I was very impressed with the look of it as well. Nintendo have designed a quality controller that functions extremely well and that look of an X-box, but much better looking. Its classy in every single way. My son was beyond excited as he had wanted it for ages. So you can imagine his face when he open his gift on his birthday. The only downside which is a smidge, I will have to get one for myself for my birthday as I have practically nicked his :D

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Wii had a reputation (not entirely justified) about only being for casual gamers, and supposedly Nintendo is positioning the Wii U to regain that lost market share with more third party titles. Now, admittedly, this analyzation is oversimplifying matters; sure, the Wii had lots of casual party titles, but over the course of its six year lifespan there were some remarkably deep game titles, many of them exclusive. Likewise, the Wii missed out on several heavy hitting titles that appeared on the PS3 and XBOX360, in part due to the radically different control schemes.

I believe this controller is part of Nintendo's strategy to court those third party developers. Yes, with the Wii's motion controllers and the Wii U's Gamepad (which is a perfect fit for the tablet-driven gaming we are so prominently seeing), Nintendo has unique, innovative control schemes that you just don't see in other consoles. At least, not at launch anyway. Sure, Microsoft introduced Kinect, but years after Nintendo showed the gaming community and Grandma what motion control gaming is all about.

For those 3rd party developers who want to publish their games on the Wii U, but want to minimize production and development costs by leveraging already existing content available on other platforms to a similar controller configuration, this controller is a Godsend. Part of the attraction of the Wii U is the Gamepad, and I'm sure the bigger companies will work their magic with the Gamepad.

But lets face the truth: there will be several multi-platform franchises that the developers will be able to ease production costs by utilizing the Pro Controller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why didn't i get one sooner 23 May 2014
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.
