3.0 out of 5 stars Nyko Wand review. June 12, 2009
By Al Lang
Color Name:White
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I recently picked up the Wand in my quest for new things gimmicky and shiny, and I have to say that besides a couple of setbacks, it's a pretty good pick-up for the money.
---
**EDITED 7/17/09: Just got the Wand back from Nyko after they updated it; works just fine with the Motion Plus. Removed statements referring to the Motion Plus incompatability.

Just keep in mind that the Wand that you pick up may have to be sent over to Nyko to be updated to work with the Motion Plus. Just call their Customer Support and they'll send you a shipping label. Turnaround for me was about a week.

Since I can't seem to adjust my star rating for the product, just imagine a fourth star hanging out up there.

The good:

+Function. From what I've played, I haven't noticed any differences in functionality in terms of motion or IR control when compared to the stock Wii Remote.

+Price point. At 30-35 bones, you're saving some cash compared to the Remote's 40.

+Rubberized everything. Nyko's design techs seem to be unnaturally greasy, since pretty much anything that might slip on the underside has been coated in ribbed rubber.

+The little things. The 1 and 2 buttons have been upped in size a bit, which makes playing games like "Punch-Out!" significantly more tolerable. The Wand also lets you check battery status without powering the system on.

The bad:
-Limited Trans-Port accessory availability. One of the big draws to the Wand is its proprietary technology to add accessories that don't rely on convoluted mechanisms to press buttons on the controller, as well as other features, like a rumbling nunchuck. The reason this isn't in the "Good" side is due to the sheer lack of accessories at present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like the Nintendo Wiimote May 29, 2009
By plexas
Color Name:White
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After using the Nyko Wand for 8 days, I have to say that I am very happy with it. I was a little hesitant to buy a Wiimote not from Nintendo, but I have Nyko's charge station and that has performed very well so I decided to give their Wand a chance, especially since Nyko has a new nunchuck (the Kama) coming out that vibrates when used with the Wand. Overall the Wand has performed exactly the same as Nintendo's. I also like that the Wand has a rubberized grip and trigger which gives me more feel. Plus the buttons are bigger than Nintendo's, so when I'm playing the new Punch Out, which I play with the remote held horizontally, it's alot easier to play. I highly recommend this Wiimote alternative, and I'm already considering pre-ordering Nyko's Core Pak to get the nunchuck with vibration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better, Faster, Stronger...Cheaper?! May 29, 2009
Color Name:White
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The red button kind of threw me off at first, as I am not exactly the biggest fan of M&M's on my controllers, but once I saw this controller in person, it actually kind of grew on me even if it does stick out when compared to my other Wii Remotes...but in a good way! What really made me decide to buy it was that I could save 5 bucks, and be able to use the special accessories like the gun attachment. The performance has been on par with the 1st party controllers I have, and once the other enhanced accessories come out (vibrating nunchuck anyone?), I'll prolly be using this for most all of my games on the wii! So I saved some money, have a unique looking remote and the ability to buy specialized accessories...WIN!

1.0 out of 5 stars Quality is not job 1 January 5, 2010
Color Name:White
Bought one to add to our Wii system and it would have to be re-sync'd every time I turned the wii off. That was not acceptable to me because I have small kids and would have to do it myself everytime they played with it. The store gave me a replacement, but it had an LED that wasn't working and also needed to be re-sync'd, but not everytime. Not worth the hassle for me. Also noticed that the battery cover doesn't fit snug on the remote, which doesn't cause problems, but doesn't inspire confidence in the design.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hopeful but no good... December 17, 2009
Color Name:White
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I liked the looks of this controller over the traditional Wii-mote so I figured I'd give it a shot. I was a little surprised to see the battery sprints and such were identical to those of the Nintendo one. "Hey, maybe it has the same guts!" Yeah...no such luck. After fumbling around with the sync buttons, I finally managed to get it to communicate with the Wii. I open up a game and it disconnects and won't reconnect. I grab my other remote and sure enough, it works fine but the Niko won't resync. After resetting the Wii I managed to get it to work on the menu again only to have it drop the sync once I started a game...

Perhaps I had a bad one, I don't know, but I ended up just getting a standard wiimote and calling it a night.

4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good for a 2nd remote August 18, 2009
Color Name:White
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a pretty good controller. I prefer the original Nintendo version, but if you're looking to save a few bucks, I think this one is fine. It's definitely fine for a 2nd remote. From my experience, it's more or less the exact same as the Nintendo version, with the exception of the way it looks and a few of the buttons. Feels very similar in your hand.

Giving it 4 of 5 since the Nintendo is the standard and I like it better. This one is pretty good though. I may get another should I be in the need for a 3rd remote.

By the way, friends have played on this one with no problem also. I also like that it's a different color/look, so I can tell remotes one and two apart just by looking at them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but...
Great product and it arrived on time but it doesnt come with any batteries. So if youre looking for one you can just recharge then you have to buy the battery for it.
