The Nintendo Wii Classic Controller
  • I think I got used to this after awhile, but after playing so many years with controllers that actually do have handles, like Sony’s Dual Shock controllers, and Nintendo’s very own Game Cube controller, it was a bit weird and at times incontinent to revert back to using a controller with no handles like I did when I was a little kid

      The Classic Controller is a controller intended for the Nintendo Wii. The Nintendo Wii is capable of downloading older titles via the Virtual Console, and that is the intended purpose of this controller. This controller can be used on the Nintendo Wii to play Original Nintendo Entertainment System games, Super Nintendo Entertainment System games, Sega Genesis games, Turbo Grafixs 16 and CD games, Arcade games, Sega Master System games, Nintendo 64 games, SNK’s Neo Geo and finally the Comodore 64. (There’s also the MSX, however that’s only available in Japan, the trade off is that the Comodore 64 is only for Europe and North America) Now this controller is also intended to be used with certain

      Nintendo Wii games, such as No More Heroes 2, Muramasa: The Demon Blade and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

      Now it’s time I go on to the controller itself. If you’ve ever playing with a Super Nintendo Entertainment System controller, you would probably feel right at home with this controller as it feels pretty much the same. The shape is about the same and the button layout is as well. The biggest differences of course the additions of 2 extra shoulder buttons, the two analog sticks, and the Home button in the center to access the Wii’s Home menu, which allows you to either reset the game, return to main Wii menu, or tweak some settings.

      Overall the controller

      has 11 buttons. There’s the 4 shoulder buttons on the top, the plus and minus buttons which act the same way as start and select, the home button and the 4 face buttons. Like I said before, everything about the controller except for the added analog sticks and the added buttons, is pretty much the same as the old Super Nintendo Entertainment System controller, which means it carries many of the same pros and cons. First of all, there are no handles to grip on. I think I got used to this after awhile, but after playing so many years with controllers that actually do have handles, like Sony’s Dual Shock controllers, and Nintendo’s very own ...

      Game Cube controller, it was a bit weird and at times incontinent to revert back to using a controller with no handles like I did when I was a little kid. Now for those who simply cannot get used to this, there is an accessory that you can attach to the controller that adds handles to it. I’ve heard good things about this accessory, but since I’ve never used it myself, I have no real opinion on it.

      I think the biggest flaw that this controller suffers from is the fact that you have to connect the Wii Remote. This causes you to have a controller, connected to the remote in order to work, and it’s a

      bit inconvenient. I’ve seen that the previously mentioned accessory addresses this issue, but again, I’ve never used it, and until I do that’s a separate review for another time.

      Overall this is a fairly decent controller. It will take some getting used to, and the fact that it’s connected with the Wii Remote isn’t exactly the most convenient thing in the world, however the controller itself works just fine. The buttons are well made and the controller itself is built fairly competently. I give this a 7 out of a 10. If you’re going to be playing a lot of games on your Nintendo Wii that require this controller, I recommend you get it, but just keep in mind of its flaws.

The important thing about controller is buttons and layout.

is it responsive? nice to press?
buttons hard or soft?

any lag time?
