Summary: Wish I purchased them from Newegg, as returns with Newegg would have been smooth. Newegg has a selection of "fighter" joysticks that actually work (and more controllable turbo at that).
Pros: Turbo and Slow, which is tough to find on cheaper controllers.
Cons: Two units DoA. Remote dongle works fine, but two gamepads never powered on with batteries in them, mounted correctly, etc. I even took the second one apart, and wired it directly to a clean 4.5V source to see if the battery mounts were flaky. Even with clean 4.5VDC from a regulated power supply t...
Cons: Broke within a month of purchase. I took it apart several times in attempts to keep it hobbling along. Stick would not respond to going right consistently. another cheap Chinese piece of kaka filling an American landfill now.
Summary: It does not work with Geometry Wars Galaxies which makes me want to do evil things to the world! A) Geo Wars should support the GC controller and B) this should not be marketed as a classic controller but hey - they got MY money!
Pros: Cheap. Readily available.
Cons: This actually is NOT a replacement for the Wii CLassic controller, its actually a gamecube replacement controller but THEY DONT TELL YOU THAT. So games that specifically work with the Wii Classic Controller but do not support the GC controller WONT WORK AT ALL. It plugs into the gamecube controll...
Good. But Different setup as far as Brawl goes, for gamecube controller

Summary: I could RMA it, but I'll keep it in case I may want to use it for another game. It's simply not officially supported by the Brawl, but perhaps in the future they will get a better setup for it.
Pros: Better then the Wii remote and nun chuck, although I might even prefer brawl play, with just the remote rather then this.
Cons: I got this for SSBB, and I don't particularly like it. I recommend getting a DreamGear I.Glow Wireless Wii/Gamecube controller. That slow function on the controller is a bit annoying.
Just keep reminding yourself that 2 of these = 1 Wavebird

Summary: They feel pretty sturdy and are a good size (though I'm saying this as someone with extremely small hands)... but they rather miss the mark on a lot of the features. Good as cheap MarioKart / Smash Bros. controllers, though.
Pros: Cheap, like half the price of 1 used Wavebird. All buttons are remappable (with a huge caveat below). Buttons and analog sticks feel tight and responsive. I only play VC games (in which shoulder button sensitivity doesn't matter), so I LIKE that the shoulder buttons are shallow and have no varyin...
Cons: Button mapping goes away if you turn it off. Analog sticks are not sensitive enough for very precise movements (e.g. aiming arrows in Zelda OoT gets pretty painful). Wireless dongle flashes disturbingly when controllers aren't synced. Syncing requires you to actually hold down buttons on both the...
A decent solution for those who want a wireless GC/VC pad.

Summary: It has Turbo and Slow buttons, but I have no idea if anyone has seriously ever used those in the history of gaming. I don't have the slightest clue as to why controller developers keep putting them in there. Not a con, but not a pro.
Pros: Decent grip that makes it a bit better than the VC controller for N64 games, feels solid despite the pricetag. Compared to the WaveBird, it's cheaper, has rumble, and is easier to track down. Programmable buttons can also be useful, though programming is lost after you shut off the pad or console...
Cons: The pad is small, which leads to crowding; when using the D-pad, my thumb often comes into contact with the analog sticks. The analog sticks themselves are also quite close together as well as also too small, and I have to readjust my grip on them more than I'd like. Also, the shoulder buttons do...
A good cheap wireless controller for Wii and Gamecube.

Excerpt: I wasn't familiar at all with the Thrusmaster brand. I was skeptical because I have never had any luck with 3rd party accessories outside of Logitech products for my PS2. I did some online research, checking various places and saw that the overwhelming majority of customers were very satisfied.
Summary: Hallo Ich habe die Controller vor ca. einem Jahr gekauft. Nach ca. 6 Monaten ist eine Halterung des R1-Knopfes abgebrochen. Seit ca. einem Monat verlieren die Controller immer wieder den Kontakt zum Computer. Ich habe die Controller gelegentlich gebraucht also ca. 2-4 mal die Woche für 2-3 Stunden.
