Great controller, aside from lag Jan. 5 2009
By John R - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
It comes in one of those horrid "you need a scissor to open, and cut yourself from the plastic" plastic packaging that inevitably scraped my hand, but luckily didn't draw any blood.

The package contains the controller (obviously), a small wireless adapter that attaches to the bottom of the Wii-remote (where the nunchuck's cord would attach), a pair of non-rechargeable AAA batteries, and two big-sheet manuals rolled into little bundles (each has a different set of languages).

Pros:
+ Controller feels solid (no squeeks or give).
+ Small remote adapter frees you from the cord you'd otherwise tether between the official classic controller and the remote.
+ Buttons layout (including "trigger" buttons by index fingers) is the same as the official classic controller.
+ Buttons layout played fine with Megaman 9 (virtual console game), with each color pair (right red button and blue buttons) both replicating remote's buttons 1 & 2, so you can use whichever pair you like.
+ Can recharge if using AAA NiMH batteries (not included) via mini-USB cable (not included).
+ More comfortable to hold than the standard remote.

Cons:
- Only two controllers can be used at once (wireless adapter and controller only have two pair settings: slow blink and fast blink). Meaning, only up to 2 people can use Wii Wing Wireless Controller, while players 3 & 4 need to use an official classic or standard remote.
- Didn't work with Tetris Party (virtual console game).
- Buttons feel a bit mushy, but it's a personal preference.
- Lag! It MAY be psychological, but when playing Megaman 9, there seemed to be a slight lag (0.5s) in pressing a button (eg. jump) and the game actually registering it.

Conclusion:
If quick reflexes isn't a defining factor (as in platform-jumping games) this is a great controller for classic games, which are typically purchased and downloaded via virtual console. However, if you play split-second reflex games like Megaman 9 or often play Tetris Party, either stick with the standard remote (using the standard rubber sleeve) or get the official classic controller.

Solid Wireless Option Jan. 9 2010
By MLD - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Fun:   
Works perfectly for what you need. Set-up is easy and I haven't noticed any lag in controller response worth mentioning. I've downloaded a number of SNES virtual console titles and haven't had an issue yet. Using the analog controls for classic games is a nice option as well.

The controller fits nicely in the palms of my hand, its not too light or bulky. After reviewing all other available wireless options for the Wii I found this one to be the best option and wasn't disappointed. If you're interested in using your Wii for classic games I'd say this is a must.

I've used this controller for two weeks now with no issues, I'll update my review later down the road to document any issues that arise with repeated long term use.

Update 9/15/10: Controller has never given me any issues to date and still works perfectly. Have been using it quite a bit for Arc Rise Fantasia. Love this controller.

A Solid Third Party Alternative Feb. 7 2010
By Jose R. Romero - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
I decided to order a pair of these controllers along with my copy of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, and so far I've been very pleased with them. The Wing looks pretty awkward judging by the handful of photos of it available online, but I think it looks quite nice and very well-made in person. In most aspects the Wing compares favorably to the first-party Classic Controller, with a few notable differences. I find the Wing to be more comfortable to play with over long periods of time because of its ergonomic design (and not being awkwardly tethered to the Wii Remote). The controller's performance is also quite good; fighting games like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and Brawl require fast response times and the Wing definitely delivers. I was initially worried about connecting through a wireless dongle, but extensive sessions in the aforementioned games revealed no signal disruption or input lag worth speaking of (even on an LCD). Overall, I would say the Wing is a great alternative to the Classic Controller and an easy recommendation considering it currently goes for about 50-75% the cost of the first-party controller at most retail stores. Nyko even offers a wired version of the controller at a lower price, for those that are worried about wireless response time or battery life.

Other notes:
* D-Pad feels slightly mushier than on the Classic Controller, but is responsive nonetheless. Double-tap, quarter/half-circle, DP, charge and 360° motions posed no problem.
* Analog stick restrictors are circular, unlike the 8-way restrictors on the Classic Controller. Can be a pro or con depending on your preference.
* Left analog stick can be used to navigate Wii Menus.
* ZR and ZL buttons are slightly easier to reach compared to the Classic Controller.
* Sync button doubles as the power switch. Just hold it down for a second or two to turn off the controller.
* Rechargeable AAA batteries (not included) are supported and can be charged within the controller via mini-USB cable (again, not included).
* Mini-USB port can also be used to directly power the controller if there are no batteries available.
* The sync light is kind of bright, which can be distracting if you like to play in the dark or have a reflective screen surface.
* Apparently doesn't work with HBC, so be warned if you're into that sort of thing.

Great alternative to the classic controller Dec 16 2009
By Michael Santaly - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
While the Nyko Wing feels light it your hand it doesn't feel cheap. It is well put together, and so much better than anything else for virtual console games(that require something other than the wiimote). I had a little trouble snycing it at first but since then, no issue. My only complaint is having to use batteries. Honestly I can't tell you how good the battery life is since the ones in there haven't died yet. But its satisfactory.

WIng Wireless Controller March 23 2011
By lgfdjpw76401 - Published on Amazon.com

This controller is so easy to use. The controller works well with the N64 games. It comes with an adapter that you plug into the bottom of your wii remote and sync it to the wing wireless controller. Its that simple. I have enjoyed using it. They are well worth the price.
