Ergonomically, this is indeed a Gamecube controller. Anyone with a nostalgic taste for the Gamecube will automatically feel at home with this product, or at least regarding the shape. The plastic, however, feels a bit different from an actual Gamecube controller. It does not by any means feel bad, it just feels "cheaper." It also maintains the matte finish of an official Gamecube controller, so there isn't any worry as far as fingerprints are concerned, especially when compared to the Wii U Pro Controller.
This product also feels a bit lighter than an official Gamecube controller, though this is most likely due to a lack of rumble features rather than poor build quality, since this is essentially a Wii Classic Controller with a Gamecube-type feel. The buttons feel exactly like they do on an official Gamecube controller, as well as the sticks. The only real differences in terms of buttons are in the d-pad, the shoulder buttons, and the buttons in the middle.
The d-pad is now much larger than the official Gamecube controller and feels excellent, though it is made of a slightly different plastic. The traditional "slider" buttons have been replaced by "short-stroke" buttons, more akin to the Wii U Pro Controller, and there are now TWO Z buttons instead of one.Read more ›
Let me start out by saying that I have never been a fan of third party anything. ESPECIALLY controllers. I have owned every first party controller of every Nintendo home console since the N64 (N64, GCN, Wavebird, Wii Remote, Nunchuk, Wii Classic Controller, Wii Remote Plus, Wii Classic Controller Pro, Wii U Gamepad, Wii U Pro Controller) and have used several third party controllers (GCN, Wii Remote, Nunchuk, Wii Remote Plus, Wii Classic Controller).
Years and years of being a Nintendo enthusiast has taught me the one rule with buying controllers: official Nintendo-made controllers are ALWAYS the way you want to go. Always.
This controller breaks the rules. I am amazed by this product.
The HORI has quickly become my preferred controller option (amazingly, I can say this while owning four classic wired GCN controllers, four Super Smash Bros. edition GCN controllers, four Wavebirds, and an official Nintendo adapter).
My personal pros and cons...
-If you haven't already heard, this is a Gamecube-style controller that functions as Wii Classic Controller. You plug it in to the Wii Remote and voila- Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart, and a hundreds strong library of truly great classic games are yours to command. A quality Gamecube controller that functions as a classic controller. This basically gives you Gamecube controller access to every game in the last two console generations (Wii and Wii U) that accepts traditional GCN controllers PLUS each game that accepts classic controllers at the exclusion of the GCN controller.Read more ›
But what does that matter if the controller doesn't perform inputs correctly? Unfortunately, this controller has a strange and ultimately deal-breaking design flaw with the control stick --- unpredictable reverse inputs. It has to do with when the stick returns to the neutral position --- instead of just locking into place, it often goes SLIGHTLY past it, causing a reverse input. Or to put it simply, if you flick the control stick to the left and let go, oftentimes the control stick will return to neutral and THEN go past it, to create an input to the right, before going back to neutral again. As you can imagine, this causes no end of frustration and problems in matches where you'll discover you're rolling or facing in the wrong direction because of the controller.
There also may be an issue with the fact that it's wireless, having to use a Wiimote. Unfortunately since I haven't been able to get my hands on a gamecube controller adapter (yet...) I can't directly compare, but I WILL say that compared to the 3DS version it feels like there's a slight delay (and I would know, since I've clocked in over 4,000 battles on Smash 3DS).Read more ›
