1.0 out of 5 stars AVOID 2 Nov 2010
By Jamie J
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I would recommend fellow shoppers avoid this product.

Firstly the item I received was not the same one pictured here on this page.

Secondly, the controller was faulty and badly designed.

The A, B, X and Y buttons barely work, you need to push down on them so hard to get them to register your button presses that playing any game that involves complex or frantic button presses is impossible. The second analogue stick also did not function correctly.

Faulty product and total waste of my time having to return it. Disappointing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it 17 Jan 2009
By Top tip
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I didn't get the same controller as pictured, as some of the buttons are a different shape and mine is all white. However this means it looks great, and therefore much better than I expected. It responds well and has so far survived a weeks worth of consistent punishment, so if you receive the same product you should be very pleased. The only problem, but I'm sure this depends on how you treat your controller etc... is that I find playing with this for long makes some of the muscles in my hand ache, maybe this occurs with the original controller for some too (I would not know). Anyway, overall I would recommend this item.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Overly Impressed 26 Oct 2010

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This controller is exactly what it says it is! Cheap!
It works yet some of the buttons stick. The DPad sticks too which makes gaming slightly difficult. can't complain too much, the controller was the cheapest on Amazon, was just hoping for value for money

Plain and simple, if you want to play Gamecube games on your Wii then you'll want one of these. I never owned a Gamecube but always fancied a go at some of the games - and now I can. I was worried that this might feel a bit cheap or flimsy but to be honest it feels just fine and I've had no problems using it. Go on, grab one and embrace the retro gaming experience!

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh, it's not worth anything. 17 July 2011
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
It was fine at first, but after about a month of use, the analog just became really loose to the point where it couldn't be used anymore. The buttons got stuck too. Maybe you could buy this if it's for multiplayer and if it won't be used much, because then it might last longer, but with a lot of use it will stop working. Just buy the official Nintendo one, they're built to last.

P.S. The controller was different to the picture in my case, mine has black shiney plastic on the front and the hand grips were much larger.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 1 Jun 2011
By Deji
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Buy the official controller!
I bought this for my wii so I could play Super Smash Bros Brawl.
First of all, the controller recieved looked nothing like the picture. At first it was fine and I thought it would actually last but after about 2 weeks the A button stopped performing properly. Later down the line, the Grey analog stick stopped working, along with the Yellow C Stick. You get what you pay for, just buy the official one.

2.0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't reccomend it... 13 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Upon recieving this item I foud, as other reviewers have done, that the product pictured is different to the one in the box. To me this wasn't an issue as I actually think the one I recieved looks better than the one pictured.
I actually purchased this so that I can play old N64 games on my wii and at first was very happy with it as I suffered none of the sticky button problems that seem to have plagued other users.
That is until I reached points in the games where a little finesse is required on the analouge stick... I say analouge stick, but It would be better described as a digital stick. It's either on or off and only works in increments of 45 degrees (ie, N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW). Basically it's the same as using the d-pad and is completely useless for any accurate movement/aiming. Aside from this I have no other complaints, but I feel the problem here is a rather major one which makes many games unplayable.

With this in mind I would not reccomend this controller - spend another 20 quid on a real one, as I am going to and should have done in the first place!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great but cheap controller! 5 Jan 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am very pleased with this controller. It now allows me to use Homebrew Channel properly and as well play classic games. In addition of course I could play standard Wii-games with it, but I haven't even tried. Wiimote is the best for real Wii games.

Anyway, the product is really good and surprisingly cheap!
