4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad July 30, 2009
By ChiJD
I was frightened when I read the first review. However, I think this controller is fine. I've played some Super Smash TV with it so far and the buttons seem responsive and not too "mushy" as the previous reviewer stated. I am just as bad at Super smash TV as I remember with my parents SNES. It is very lightweight and a little hollow compared to the original, but it doesn't feel like it is going to break in my hands. I have two controllers, but one of them has a bit of a "mushy" start button, but given that it is the start button, I really don't care much about it sticking every once in a while. Since I just received this product, I will leave a comment attached to this review if I change my mind and it breaks or something.

EDITED 10/09/2009
Controllers are still holding strong, even after playing many games of Ken Griffey Jr. Baseball and then getting angry and hitting my cheater of a boyfriend...Anyhow, I use them a couple times a week, and I am not super gentle with anything, let alone gaming paraphernalia, so I would say that these are pretty good quality. I will still keep you informed on their status in the future so you don't end up with a dud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent device for emulation. January 28, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a slightly edited version reposted over from my blog at: [...]

Review:

There are two things, right on the box, which are important.

First? USB. Your favorite general-use standard cable. No need for boxy adaptors or messy custom wiring.

Second? Plug and play! Your favorite kind of device! No searching for drivers, no installation of drivers, no maintenance of drivers.

In the box are 2 things -- a plastic frame that holds the controller, and the controller itself. No messy un-boxing, no extra papers, none of that. Everything except the controller is toss-able and forgettable.

The controller is lighter than I remember SNES controllers being (though I think the size is the same). The plastic is smoother. It feels pretty solid. I think I could snap this thing in half between the SELECT and START buttons if I really wanted to -- but I'm certainly not going to do it accidentally.

The D-Pad, and each and every button is much higher than the SNES was, if I recall correctly. Also, the X & Y buttons on the original controllers had a depressed dome -- by which I mean, the tops curved down --, and the A & B buttons curved the other way. Again, if I recall correctly. The four buttons on the Retrolink controller are all flat.

It has no turbo functions or buttons.

In actual use, with SNES9X over the course of the day, I found that the controller performs solidly, if not perfectly. The START button in particular is slightly finicky. The response time, however, is great.

I noticed no issues during gameplay of several SNES classics.

All together, very functional controller. Could benefit from heavier construction and mimicking original button design details like height and top curvatures a little better.

I'll give it 9 stars out of 10.

Buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad D-Pad design February 14, 2012
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
The D-Pad has a terrible design flaw. Inside the controller, only one screw is used on the lower pad of the board that connects to the D-Pad. As a result, when you press right on the controller, it actually presses down-right. Same with the left side. This is terribly inconvenient when playing, as every time you want to go right, your character will duck.

2.0 out of 5 stars Simply not as good as the real thing. August 5, 2012
By Comrade
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The Retrolink SNES Classic Controller is designed for players who wish to relive their favorite memories, playing their favorite classic games with their favorite 16-bit era controller (unless they were Genesis fans), on the couch, in the afternoon after school (or all day on weekends). Maybe with a few friends over. It sports a familiar layout, features a familiar look, and comes with a USB connection for easy plugging into your PC. Windows detects it as a standard USB gamepad with 10 buttons (even though the pad itself has 8), which you can then assign functions to in your favorite classic or retro-themed video game on your PC. It's no frills, and should be tailor-made for bringing back those happier memories, right?

If that were the case, I don't remember my SNES ever controlling this poorly.

The pad features 10 buttons, 2 of which are unused. The 4 face buttons are nothing to complain about; they're responsive and they're in the right places at least. The shoulder buttons are ready to give out after only a day's worth of use, starting with the R button. They have a rubbery give to them, as if there's a membrane beneath, and are stiffer than the stock SNES pad. They would be passable, I suppose, but they're going to go at any second. The start and select buttons are soft rubber, and otherwise nothing to complain about.

The d-pad, however, is the main problem with this thing. Simply put, hitting down-left or down-right are a crapshoot, with either left or right usually winning out, if hitting a diagonal even registers as either down or left/right on the pad at all. If that isn't bad enough, the down direction on the d-pad is beginning to give up, requiring harder and harder presses to register.

The buttons themselves are inoffensive, though ready to fail, and the d-pad is terrible and only getting worse. There are far better ways to relive your early 90s memories. Far, far better ways.
