This review is from: Nintendo Nunchuk Controller Add-On (Wii) (Video Game)
The Wii Nunchuck is a must have accessory for any wii gamer. Although the nintendo wii comes with one wiimote and nunchuck, if you want to play any game in multiplayer, it will be necessary to purchase another wiimote as well as a nunchuck to enjoy the game fully. In fact, most games require the nunchuck to play and it is not optional to play with just the wiimote.
I can find no reason to give this device such a poor review, nintendo tries to include games from all backgrounds and with the wii, all age groups. Seeing older relatives get involved in games is great fun, without such revolutionary controls they would not be so interested.
The nunchuck is simple to move, it consists a basic 4 way motion sensor and analogue control stick alongside a trigger button and a c button, both easily operable by ones thumb and forefinger. In my opinion it is easier to use than a standard controller especially if you have joint problems such as arthritis.
In summary Nintendo has tried very hard to build an inclusive controller, and even though for some it may not be ideal, i think it strikes the best balance, between inclusion and functionality.
