Functional, but don't expect Nintendo quality
on June 30, 2010
The first thing that caught my eye was the generic packaging with broken English. "Perfectly fit a player's hand". "Prent slip". "Wii Wired Nunchuka". There is no company name or address to be found on the box or cheap instructions. Speaking of the instructions, the nunchuck is pictured on the cover page, but the instructions are actually for the remote, which comes with "ramble". Interestingly, one of the precautions says "Don't dismantle the game controller without permission." Permission from whom? Like I said, there is no company name, address, phone number, or website listed.
Okay, so what about the actual nunchuk? Well, it looks exactly like the original, except for the Nintendo logo, of course. It's functional, but it feels a little stiff. The analog sensitivity seems a hair off. For instance, I tested it playing Super Mario Galaxy 2, and it was a bit harder to move it just enough to make Mario walk instead of run. You also have to press the 'Z' button in the middle to make it work, whereas on the original you could press it towards the back without a problem. Strangely, unlike others have reported, it worked fine with the Wii Motion Plus and Wii Sports Resort.
Overall, I'd say it's worth the cheaper price if you're willing to adjust to the slight differences. But if you demand top quality and ease of use, stick with Nintendo's.
