I originally wanted 3 Nunchuck controllers. I was not convinced I would like the quality of this brand so I only purchased one. When it arrived the first thing that i noticed was that the packaging looked kind of cheesy, but when I plugged in the controller it felt like any other Nunchuck controller and responded well to command inputs. That said, I went ahead and purchased another two of these. It works well and does not feel as if it will break any time soon. But know that if it does, I will be back on here with a new review.

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.

Looks like others have had the same problem - wish I'd known beforehand! This nunchuk lasted about two months, then started working sporadically and then just died. It was not mishandled. Hardware should last a lot longer than that!

This is a cheap imitation of a Nintendo item. I was quite happy to find it for half the price of the original. It looks very similar, but does not work as well. This item is meant as an add-on for the main Wii remote controller to enable certain games. The main problem is that the "Z" button on this unit malfunctions: sometimes it does not respond when pressed; sometimes it responds, but than spontaneously releases (despite the finger pressing on it). That makes games like Archery completely non-playable. In addition, even when it seems to work, it responds very slowly to the movement, which is rather annoying.
A curious note: it comes with the product insert and instructions for the main remote controller, which list all the items that "are included" (but are not) and says not a word about the Nunchuk. I was unpleasantly surprised to see amazon selling this. The item is very cheap and adding it to my cart earned me free shipping. Otherwise, I would have been seeking a full refund instead of stashing it in the old toys box.

Pros:
Is a Nunchuk controller
$8 cost
Cons:
Is NOT a Nintendo Product. This is a Chinese knockoff.
The buttons feel indescribably worse than a real controller's.
Costbuy may be eligible for prime shipping, but took over a week to arrive. Very bad.

End story: you get what you pay for. About half the price of a real controller, about half the quality.

Ordered this because Nintendo didn't make a matching blue nunchuck, plus it was pretty cheap.

The color matches pretty well, however the controller just doesn't have the same quality as a Nintendo one.

The buttons are 'mushy' and the analog stick makes a hollow, plasticky click sound when used. Also, the analog stick is a bit off kilter. If I lightly push it in like a button, I can make it point left or right quite a bit, and it stays there as the new 'center.'

I'll stick with the official white one. After comparing in person, I like white+blue better anyway.

I bought this to use as a stopgap while I saved up more money to buy a real nunchuck (from Nintendo), but was surprised to find that it worked every bit as well as a first party controller.

BUYER BEWARE --- DO NOT PURCHASE! This nunchuk did not work for even 60 days before it just stopped registering with the Wii. Also, the Z button would only respond if the player pressed it in a very specific way. This nunchuk is junk - just spend a couple extra dollars and buy a real one from Nintendo than this piece o crap. The manufacturer must have known it was crap too because they didn't even include their name or contact information with the device.

I am contacting amazon about this, how dare you send me a black conrtoller with a white cord? this was not even brand new, and it doesn't even work! I just got this today, and was actually happy I got it within a few days of ordering, but as soon as I brought it home and tried it.....NOTHING!
