A essential purchase if you want to use the virtual console,
This review is from: Nintendo Wii Classic Controller (Wii) (Accessory)
The classic controller has been made for playing select Wii games(none of these have been released yet) and virtual console games.
Incase you dont know what the virtual console is by clicking on the Wii shop button on the Wii menue you can purchase games from the NES,MegaDrive,TurboGX16,SNES and the N64.
The controller is more or less perfect for playing these games, it fits in to your hand perfectly and uses the SNES button layout with 2 analogue sticks for playing N64 games the controller feels well made and has a very good d-pad (very important for fighting games like street fighter 2). The controller plugs in to your Wiimote making it wireless.
If you are planning on playing virtual console games the classic controller is a must and you will beable to use it in the upcomming super smash brothers brawl.
