by spoderman this is trash, dont buy
there are always problems with this controller. everywhere i look someone is having trouble with it. mine's control stick decided to do whatever it wanted within 8 months of ownership. buying this controller is basically postponing how long until you buy a legit nintendo controller, and losing 15 dollars in the process. design is ok, but not as good as a real gc controller. the only thing better about this one is the turbo button *cough cough* useless *cough* you could buy it for somebody you hate. tl;dr this thing is terrible

by JMAN100 DONT BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To tell you the truth, i am VERY gentle with all of my video games. My friend and i are playing Mario Party 4 and in a mini game all of a sudden he can't use the "R" button. Do not buy this. You will just be wasting your money. Make shure you get the official Gamecube controller (Nintendo). I have one of them and it has not failed yet.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Rioichi Felt great, until I felt a REAL GC Controller
It was an amazing controller, although it felt very cheap. Almost as if it could break any moment. After feeling an original controller, it just felt horrible. I would spend the extra five or ten bucks to get an official controller. it would be well worth it. Although it is good for Project M and activating debug mode.
Rated 8 out of 10 by jesussavedmii An Good Controller
I bought this controller to play Gamecube games on my Wii. It is OK when it come to comfort. The controller has no grips for extra comfort. Although is does't have any comfort features, overall it is quite comfortable. COMFORT 8/10 The Durability is really good. I think I dropped it one time and it still worked. DURABILITY 9/10 The Responsiveness is all right. When I got it the "Z" button hardly wouldn't work, but I fixed it. I don't know if it was just my controller (this was before the fall). It really wouldn't work unless you pressed down really hard or in a certain spot, but other than that good responsive buttons. RESPONSIVENESS 7/10 The Design is great. It is a little smaller than the official Gamecube controller and comes in many colors. Mine is clear and has the turbo button next to the "L" button. All buttons are nicely placed. DESIGN 9/10 The Functionality is really good. It works just like it says it will. FUNCTIONALITY 8/10 Overall a really good controller. I love it and you should pick it up. OVERALL 8/10
Rated 3 out of 10 by Sacrableu Good starter controller, but I don't recommend it.
I have owned a GC for years, and still play it with my friends. However, I needed a fourth controller, so I purchased this. I keep my controllers in the best condition possible, because I know that eventually people will stop selling them, so I need some. However, this controller is the first, and ONLY controller to have broken on me in the 10 years I have owned them, and it had broken in the first two years. I like the design, where as you can see how the controller works, but it fits awkwardly in my hands, and sounds and acts horribly after the first year. Mine still works, with the exception of the turbo button which is worthless anyway, so now I just keep it as a backup in the case of my four regular controllers break. So now, all I can say about this controller is, If you only want to own a GC for a few years, and are willing to take great care of it, then this may be for you. Otherwise, save up for a nintendo brand controller.
Rated 8 out of 10 by M.Sanges Sturdy enough, but....
I was thrilled to pick up a Gamestop Brand Chameleon Gamecube controller while on vacation in Mass., the best part being that I found one . . . IN WHITE (!) to match the wii, of course. I got it home, took it out of the package and felt for telltale signs of cheapness: mushy buttons, a weak analog stick, plastic being flimsy, or generally just feeling like a cheap kids' toy. I was very surprised to note that it fell into NONE of these categories; a very solid feeling product indeed, even more comfortable and less-clumsy feeling than the official Gamecube controller. I was mildly impressed. And so, being satisfied with my initial impression, I tucked it away into my entertainment center for a few days before testing it out. I made sure to get at least the one play in before the week had ended and come to find out--just like the old adage that "Caveat Emptor" came from--it was broken before I even got a chance to break it in, which isn't something exclusive to these third-party control pads, but nonetheless the warning remains the same: Buyer beware.
Rated 2 out of 10 by BroBrenn Not Great for Wii/ Gamecube play.
This is an bad/okay remote for people who want to play gamecube games on the Wii, or Wii games with a gamecube remote. It is a different feeling on your hand then the Nintendo Remote, but it works none the less ( for a while, keep reading). But, there comes a time when you have some button on the remote stop working (or some analog stick) completely. Eg. I play Dragon Ball Z: Budokai tenkaichi 3 on my wii, with a gamecube remote, and the equivalent on the z button on the chameleon does not respond. However, this is cheaper than a Nintendo controller, and works (without the Z button) for casual games like Mario Kart: double Dash, and Kirby: air ride. Just go to a local store and get a used Nintendo Remote. PS. when buying a lused remote, push all the buttons and trigeers and joysticks, etc. to make sure that it is good, my first one had a bad analog stick, but i returned it and got a very good one, which I still use today.
Rated 4 out of 10 by NeonFlayr Good price, weak controller
It works ok, but the parts are weak. I've been through two in the past two months, because the buttons stop responding. If I play Smash Bros. with this controller, it will break. You can't button mash and expect the controller to hold out. The price is great, but as always you get what you pay for. I reccomend shelling out the extra 10-15 dollars for a name brand controller, unless you don't mind replacing it every time you play Smash.
Rated 10 out of 10 by whut Feels VERY cheap, but rating 10 for performance.
This controller feels REALLY cheap to the hand. Build quality overall sucks. Button clicks feel horrible and terrible grip. HOWEVER... this did not have a SINGLE problem while playing games. This controller worked very well when it came to game play. I had the original Nintendo Gamecube Controller, but the "a" button no longer worked so I went to GameStop to get a new one. The only available controllers were these so I had no choice, but to buy them. I somewhat regret buying them, but they work perfectly fine so no questions there. Although it looks ugly and the plastic is super cheap, it works just fine when it comes to playing games. People are rating this controller for it's build quality. I give it a 10 for not interfering while I'm playing games. However, I have a good feeling that this controller will break on me within the next month or two :C. But yeah, overall... build quality is a 0, performance is a 10.
Rated 7 out of 10 by SCOUTMaster Meh.
I got this quite a while ago, and it works fine. I've dropped it and fallen on it several times, but it still works. One thing to note is that sometimes, the Turbo button doesn't work and, as a result, will not stop auto-firing on whatever button you have selected. The only way to fix this is to unplug the controller. It feels great in your hands, and that's about all I can say. The main problem with this controller is functionality and responsiveness. The L and R buttons are an absolute chore to push. That's not all -- the D-pad is abysmal. I want to press Left on it, and it goes up. It is 10x worse than the Xbox 360's D-pad. This has caused issues with games like Paper Mario 2 and Metroid Prime. Should you buy it? Well, if you need a new GC controller, and this is all they have, then no doubt you should buy it. However, if they have a Used default controller, then do get that instead at all costs.
