      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty okay. I mean, this classic controller has been out forever. It works precisely as suggested, and can be used for a huge variety of things including controlling most games that were officially released for both Wii U and vWii / Wii, but it can also be used in a huge amount of homebrew apps as well, which is the primary reason I bought it. The only gripes I have are: The cord sticks out of the bottom, not the top like 99% of all other controllers; the R / L buttons have a lot of give, as if they were pressure-sensitive, but they aren't, and don't work until you push all the way in and feel the click. Otherwise, great things. Nintendo even released a newer model of the corded classic controller with handles which addresses both of the above issues, but lacks that certain nostalgia factor of holding a controller that is uncomfortable for hours at a time.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent. I got the one with handles. Kinda awkward design. Not that comfortable to hold. Here's the kicker. I paid under $10 for mine at my local store. I thought it was a knockoff at first but upon inspection it is authentic.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Controller This controller is great and is easy to use. Be sure to get all buttons loose before playing because some buttons are hard to push in, but overall, it is a great product.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This controller is awesome because you can play classic games like zelda and donkey kong and can also play newer WiiWare games and also games like Super Smash Bros Brawl. Eveything about this controller is awesome.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!!! First of all the "1's" were because those categories didn't really apply to this (sound and graphics). This is totally awesome. I originally got it for my grandpa, because I bought him space invaders off the virtual console, and it only supported this. I use it for alot of things- It works with most, if not all virtual console titles (I have Space invaders, Sonic the hedgehog, and mappy) and some wiiare titles (like Gyrostarr) and a selection of discs (SSBB, Mario Kart Wii, 007 Goldeneye, Black Ops). It is awesome, and it has a good feel, like a classic controller. Very good buy!

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poor design great functionality I highly recommend this controller for your VC games except your N64 games. I would use a Gamecube controller for your 64 VC games. But, this controller is excellent for your other games say for instance NES,SNES,Genesis,etc. Works great for games like Brawl and Mario Kart Wii. The controller has kind of a good and bad design at the same time. The design works well if you are playing your games using the D-Pad. If you have bigger hands like me it feels kind of odd at first using the analog sticks and you will have to position your hands accordingly. Also what I did was I purchased the NYKO grip which really helped in my situation. The controller is of good construction. With this being a 1st party controller its easy to note it has durable plastic and does not have the cheap feel to it that a lot of 3rd party controllers do. The D-Pad is completely perfect which Nintendo has been known for a lot of years.
