There are certain games however for which the combination of the Wiimote with the Nunchuk requires some training. It feels like a second nature after a while and you do not give it a second thought. If like me, however, you are over 35, you will welcome the feeling of a good old classic controller in your hands.
Games such as The Xenoblade Chronicles, The Conduit I & II and Rune Factory Frontier they all open up as a different experience when played with a classic controller.
The controller plugs into the Wiimote and not the console so it is portable - but clearly not wireless which would had been preferable even if it meant a higher price. Nevertheless, this is a very ergonomically designed controller and it manages to combine the classic Nintendo feel with more modern expectations. It has the classic 4-directions cross on the left, the four action buttons on the right (A, B, X & Z) and the two octa-directional sticks (which are at the right distance not to hinder one another).Read more ›
First of all what I like about this controller is:
1. Battery life. Although the wii pro controller is not truly wireless, because it needs to be plugged into the wiimote to work,
it actually uses very little battery life. This is probably due to the fact that there is no rumble function which I don't consider a draw back since most VC games other than a few N64 titles, don't use a rumble feature anyways. My battery usually lasts about a week
averaging maybe an hour or more of game play a night.
2. The feel of the face buttons is amazing! Very responsive, comfortable on the thumb, and sharp looking too. Nintendo should of had this controller since the launch of the wii!
3. Personally I don't like the octagon around the the thumb sticks, but I will still give the controller a point for them anyways. They are very comfortable, have a nice grip and over all are on par with Playstation and Xbox in my opinion.
4. This is a few points in one here. The over all feel weight and look of the controller is very similar to what you'd expect from a modern controller. Nintendo finally made a real gaming controller. (the last good controller in my opinion was the snes).
1. I hate to take a point for this one, because the D-pad is a big step up from the original D-pad on the wiimote, but seeing as it's just the same D-pad that was on the original classic controller and it's not the most responsive i'd say it's a con. Still works fine for
any retro gaming but don't expect it to give you that "classic feel".
2. The angle is off. Hmmm...Read more ›

Using this to play some of the best WIi games (Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, Super Smash Bros, etc) feels like a great alternative to the Wiimote/nunchuck combo. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Richard Burak
