We as most people bought our original system which provided but only one controler/remote.We needed another. Not very funny how a system that promotes family and friends @ interactive play provides but only one remote in the first place. Anyhow we bought this NYKO remote an are very disapointed. As others have all ready stated it does not track/keep active signal at all. Ive taken the first one back after 6 days and now not even a week after,the replacement is even worse than the first. Certainly do not try games that require any fast or sudden action or movment. OK, all the buttons work and its design is great. It worked to type this, then again Im slow at point texting. However none of that applies when trying to play Madden,SportsResort etc.Spend the extra * dollars if you can find a original wii remote anywhere in stock. Electronics returns are to frustrating to keep returning and not fun at all.

I purchased one of these Nyko remotes for my Wii because my husband and I wanted to play Mario Kart together. The remote worked well for about one month and we thought we got a good deal on the remote. We were wrong. All of a sudden, the remote didn't work as it should. Either it was coming out of sync with the system, or it just didn't work at all. We tried re-syncing it, but the remote would not cooperate. So we gave up. About a month later, we tried it again, and we thought that it had synched correctly. Unfortunately, it did not. The sensor bar was not picking up a signal from the Nyko Wand. The buttons on the wand worked just fine, but it is quite difficult to really enjoy the capabilities of the Wii if the sensor does not work. I would not recommend the Nyko remote to someone looking for an inexpensive alternative. Just spend the extra money and get a Nintendo remote.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Surfriot Wand does more..
I bought this at the GameStop down my street because the price was cheaper, but also because the GameStop employee told me about the bonus features you get with the remote. I bought the package that came with the Wand and the nunchuck and I was impressed with how good it worked. Being able to pass vibration in the nunchuck is a plus for me. The extra rubber grip gives the remote a better feel especially since I do not like using the rubber jacket on my remote. The design of the remote I think makes it easier to play games that you need to turn the remote on its side such as Mario Brothers Wii. I am not very fond of the color scheme, but that is my preference and does not really have to do with any of the functions of the remote All and all I would definitely recommend this remote. I have had it for about 2 months now and it's still working great.

This is the perfect controller for the Wii. It is so great, we own three(Black, Purple, and Pink). I was a little unsure about buying these products because of the other reviews saying how it would un-sync itself from the Wii, but none of them ever did. It was so great, we even bought the matching Kama (the off-brand nunchuks) for all three of them. The rubber battery cover and rubber "B" button on the back creates the perfect comfort. The "Wand" cover also makes the perfect comfort. The design is flawless, making the buttons on the front bigger makes it so much easier to press them when holding it vertically or horizontally is great. It functions perfectly with the Wii and the other accessories, like the "Wii Motion Plus" accessory. I would strongly recommend this product to anyone who owns a Wii.
Rated 1 out of 10 by chiefkevbe Great idea, poor execution
I bought this controller from Bestbuy, because I love 3rd party accessories (Madcatz, Pelican etc), but I was quite disappointed with this product. After syncing it with my Wii and try to play Grand Slam Tennis with it (excellent game by the way), I was disappointed with the performance. It kept losing connection and I'd have to wait a few seconds for it to connect again. I initially thought that maybe it was the Wii motion plus that was causing the problem so I removed it with the same results. Then I thought maybe it was my rechargeable battery pack so I replaced that with standard batteries but still had the same problem. I returned it to Bestbuy for a new one with the same results. It doesn't keep a connection longer than 30 seconds once I start playing .
Rated 1 out of 10 by xxTheJokerxx Not worth half of the asking price!
We bought this controller thinking "Hey, it's half the price of the official Nintendo version". We didn't realize it was also half the controller! It never syncs up with the Wii, it drains batteries within hours, and when we DO think its working, it loses contact 5 minutes later and the onscreen pointer disappears. Unless you've got a bunch of AA batteries that you have a personal grudge against and want to kill, or you want a tech-geek-looking paperweight, I wouldn't buy this controller! Just kinda disappointed that the staff at my fave GameStop pushed it so hard instead of just saying "You get what you pay for, buy the official controller because it's a thousand times more reliable" VERY unhappy with Nyko products right now.
Rated 10 out of 10 by andrewpbeast Read this review.....
So I'll start by saying that i was not to psyched about getting this wii remote. I was planning on getting the new black remote made by nintendo, but I ended up with this. First thing you will notice: It looks pretty weird. But honestly you will probably get used to it. The controller works great. I don't know what everyone else is talking about. It works perfectly. Gets all your movement, has all the features of a normal wii remote, and it comes in a dozen of different colors. Everyone else that gave it bad review, I don't know if they got a defected one or what. All i know is that it works perfectly on my Wii and my friends. Oh, and it even supports Wii motion Plus and it's a lot cheaper than a regular wii remote.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Daftendirekted It's pretty good
Well I went to gamestop one day to pick up an extra remote and nunchuk , because I was having a friend over and only had 1. I looked at how much a Wiimote costed and I was pretty dissapointed because there was no way I could come up with that much money in a couple of hours. (It was about 70 for the wiimote and nunchuk when I looked) So I asked the guy if there were any cheaper ones, and he showed me the nyko wands. THEY GREAT! I liked the oversized buttons because the ones on the wiimote were small and uncomfortable. The layout is prettymuch the same so you shouldn't have trouble with that. It works with most (possibly all) nintendo add-ons, like motionplus, and the classic controller. It does have a few minor problems, but they really don't bother me at all. The speaker on the one I didn't have very good quality, but I didn't care because the sound I like to listen to comes out of my TV and my Cerwin-Vega Speakers. When you leave any wii remote for a period of time without using it it will turn off. The wiimotes usually just turn back on with a press of any button. Sometimes the nyko remote has trouble coming back on, but you just re-sync it to the wii and it is fine. I liked it so much I bought another one, and almost bought another, but I ran out of gift card money. And my first nyko remote has lasted longer than the wiimote that came with my wii.

I got this Thing when i bought my wii second hand. I will say this.. I have used a wii before but this thing is horrible. the pointing is horrible . Its jittery . it Drains battery's.. You buy this...buy rechargeable batts cause it will drain your wallet.. Also last gripe.. Remember its a 3rd party.. 3rd party isn't always 100% compatible.. I have issues with the shopping channel.. The wii shuts my remote off and i cant get it to turn back on. its a good remote to smash and throw on a frustrating game... until you break it and smile that it is finally gone and not ruining your wii gaming again.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Heath23 I wouldnt buy again
The butons are oversized and are nice. but the nunchuck will not fit in to accsesery guns and things bc that is bigger to. but it is nice to hold tho. Would quit working in the middle of a game and you would have to shake it to make the cursor read again. but it did work better with the upgraded sensor bar. didnt charge well in my energiser charging station. its my extra remote now. would not buy it again.
