Rated 9 out of 10 by BobBulb Great Controller With A Few Problems
The Wii U Pro Controller is a very good controller. In my opinion, it is even better than the GameCube controller, though few seem to agree with me. It is very comfortable with good buttons and sticks that can click and act as buttons, and do not feel cheap. There are a few downsides, though. The Z buttons (where triggers would be on an Xbox or PS controller) are just that: buttons. They are not triggers and are not sensitive to different levels of input like on a standard trigger or on the GameCube's L and R buttons. It does not have a built in headphone jack or gyroscope, unlike the Game Pad. However, any problems are balanced out by the controller overall working very well, with no noticeable delay and no noticeable wear on the controller after countless hours of use. One of the most impressive things to me about this controller is that it has about 80 hours of battery life, which in terms of controllers is insane. I would recommend getting this controller, as it is compatible in many Wii U games and works very well, especially in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Alec Not a good idea by Nintendo
I like Nintendo, and I will be getting a WiiU, but I think that this was a dumb move on their part and sure to make some people unhappy. The reason is that they have a Pro Controller for the Wii!!!! I bought one for use with Golden Eye, and now I have to buy a different one that is compatiable with the WiiU. Wii games, nunchucks, Wiimotes are ALL compatable with the WiiU, so why can't I use my Classic Controller Pro instead of this controller??? Don't get me wrong, I see value in this controller because it is self powered and wireless and does not have to be teathered to a Wiimote. But the classic Pro got it's charge from a Wiimote, was wireless with a Wiimote and worked great. This item looks identicle to the Classic Pro. Make your customers happy Nintndo, make everything backwards compatiable with Wii games!!!

The thing that has me most upset about this product is that I expected it to work, with all Wii U games, as of now only a few of them and by that is probably like 10-20% of them let you use this controller. Like at least you'd expect it to work with the Mario Game right? I mean it's their top selling item but no. I should have researched better but I have never had this issue with any other console where a controller doesn't work with it's launching games. So I wound up going back to return it but guess what, open item policy on electronics states you can only exchange it for one of the same......<.<....there's a whole forum out there about people complaining of this same issue and people calling Nintendo for a list of the games compatible with this remote and they don't even know themselves which I find ridiculous.
In the end I had to sell back the remote for half the price I paid to get the Wii Remote which again it's partially handicapped unless you get the Nunchuk on some games.
I think this is my only review ever but I don't think I been this upset ever. It's not only for me but for those who fell under the same lies and the lack of information provided by both Nintendo and retailers at the time of purchase.
Rated 9 out of 10 by NintendoMaster8234 Great Controller, Just wish I could use it!
I love this controller, it feels great and has excellent battery life, unfortunately NONE of the games I have at the moment are compatible with it, I have New Mario U, Nintendo Land and Batman Arkham City Armored Edition and none of them are compatible with this controller and the ones that I don't have that are compatible I'm not very interested in, I know they'll make games compatible with this controller in the future but my main complaint is why aren't games like New Mario U compatible with this controller. Other than that it's a great controller and if their are games that are compatible with it right now that you're interested in then I recommend you get it, if not wait a little while.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Greenz Amazing controller!
Very comfortable, long battery, looks great. The only bad thing is the price, $50 for a controller is a lot! I minor issue i have is the button layout, but after using it for a while you get used to how it feels.
Rated 0 out of 10 by ieatdragonz Somewhat angry!
Ok here's the deal. I went to Nintendo world in New York where they were giving trials for two games, Rayman's Legends and New Super Mario Bros U. They had this menu showing the trials you can play with along with some other WiiU games that showed trailers for them,the esrb rating, and the compatibility of the controllers. This is what angered me around one third of the games weren't compatible with the pro controller! This is annoying for one reason the games on that list were all on my buying list! Why would they make a controller and not port it to all hyped up games is beyond me. Im sure many other people are annoyed by this. Nintendo please listen to your fans <:(.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Zyzxx Wii U will be providing fun for every gamer!
With the addition of accessories such as the Pro Controller and games such as Batman: Arkham City, Mass Effect 3, and exclusives such as Bayonetta 2, the Wii U is being marketed to attract the attention of every type of gamer out there! Whether it's Mario or Rayman for normal gamers, Mass Effect or Black Ops 2 for hardcore gamers, things such as the Virtual Console for retro gamers, or games such as Nintendo Land for casual gamers, there's something for everyone! **The games that I chose for Product Recommendations are games that I believe will appeal more to those wanting to use a Pro Controller instead of the GamePad.**
Rated 10 out of 10 by Delta62845 This is the greatest controller out there!
I first bought this controller inorder to play Injustice with my brother, and ended up loving this controller. this is unlike a ps3, or a 360 controller, it takes a bit of getting use to if you use one of those systems more often than your wii u, but it naturally fits in your hands, and is the most comfortable controller i have ever used! I would strongly recommend this to anyone who has a wii u, and you guys always have to remember, black controllers are way cooler than the white ones.
Rated 0 out of 10 by AngryLime A big reason the Wii U will excel
This is going to be a huge reason for the continued success I think the Wii U will have. Americans generally don't want to be active while playing a game and thay is why I think the Wii faulted here in the US, but this controller that will be compatible with every game (pretty much) is going to change things around for nintendo. It looks to have a nice compact structure and seems to be light. I can't wait to get this along with my Wii U on november 18th.
