Wii Wand Controller (Nyko)
Junk junk junk
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.
I'll get straight to the point. This controller is cheap, clunky, and works just as well as the Nintendo brand. The controller is cheap considering that it comes with batteries and the skin. The controller seems "clunky" because of the really big buttons but nonetheless works great. The controller isn't as bad as many say it is. If you ask me it's just a case of human error or bad luck.
i got this remote because the colors were weird and crazy. but this controller stinks, the button are fine the motion sensor is horrible. the controller would not sync for a long time and the construction is weak. if you want a controller for cheap but the PDP afterglow.
Don't Get this controller?
This controller works awesome for about a month, but then it wont even turn on. I would advise you not to get the controller.
It is Ok
I always prefer the name brand over the other company's version, but I had no say in the matter. Other than that, it works just as well as the Nintendo version, but I'm not too thrilled about the design. I recommend the Official Nintendo Wii Remote over the Nyko.
DO NOT GET!!!
i got this remote and it sucks, i try and try and try but it just wont come on! alot of peple say, this is cool, this is great, but it sucks! just do not get it ok, just buy real one! it sucks!
My Re-Review for the NYKO Wand
I am sure you have seen many different reviews for this item. One moment, you will see a review saying "Great controller!", then the next review says, "Doesn't work! Buy the official Nintendo one!" What is my opinion? Well read on and find out! I got this remote out of surpised. I intended on getting the official Nintendo Black Wii Remote, but the black NYKO Wii Wand ended up in my hands. PRO #1: Comes in a huge variety of colors, such as white, black, blue, green, and more. Anyways, I had no trouble syncing this remote to my Wii, actually I never had any trouble with that. It always seemed to sync fine. PRO #2: I never had any problem syncing the Remote. Anyways, I was surprised that I had no trouble syncing it. I have read numerous reviews stating that it has trouble syncing and would unsync during gameplay. CON #1: Many people over the internet have had trouble syncing the remote, in and out of gameplay. Anyways, I found the remote to work just as well as any other controller. Read all of my motions well, pointer worked fine, buttons are big but comfortable, and it reads the nunchuk, wii motion plus, and most other accesseries. PRO #3: Works just as well as a normal Wii Remote. Anyways, it is very cheap. PROS #4: Very cheap. Only 25 bucks for the remote and only 30 buck for the remtoe with motion plus built in. So, as you can see, the NYKO Wand performs as well as a normal Wii Remote for me. The only time I had the Wand unsync on me is when I ran a homebrew application. If you don't know what homebrew is, then good, you will NEVER have the unsync problem. So anyways, this Wii Remote is great. I am not saying it is better then the Nintendo Remote, but it is a nice cheap alternative. Whether you want to take the risk of it working or not is your decision, but I have never had problems with this.
I really don't understand what everyone's talking about. I've been using my Nyko remote for almost a year and I've NEVER had any problems with it. It works great. Never unsyncs from the Wii... works with my classic controller. I highly recommend this product~!
biggest piece of junk i've ever spent money on
i bought the nyko wand a month ago and it just quit working. about two weeks after i bought it, it had problems turning on and staying on. don't waste you're money just spend the extra ten dollars on the one made by nintendo.
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.
