1.0 out of 5 stars Crap January 5, 2011
By Someguy
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I don't trust these reviews on here. I just got mine today and I can tell you its the flimsiest, crapiest quality controller I've ever held in my hands. Doesn't feel anything like the real thing. Buttons feel like they are going to fall off any second. These reviews on here look planted. You got one guy saying that hes super happy and that the middle buttons are actually rubber. The middle buttons are not rubber they are plastic. Moreover you have people saying that this controller is not a Tomee controller but actually a Retrolink controller which is also completely false. This is indeed a Tomee controller. This was probably some attempt by Tomee to slander Retrolink. If you look up the retrolink controller it has their brand name written on the controller and this one clearly doesn't. If you are going to get an NES controller, I've heard good things about the retrolink, haven't tried it but the reviews that I read for it have been good. Don't get this one, it is utter crap.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worked amazing for two weeks and then broke completely. February 6, 2010
By Chris
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Absolutely true to the original NES controller, I really enjoyed it for two weeks. Certainly wasn't any where near as rough on it as I was when I was ten either, but its buttons started to only function intermittently, and then it stopped working entirely. I suspect the USB power internal to the controller isn't connected anymore, and I'll probably get around to soldering it up at some point, but hardware troubleshooting is a bit beyond me.

Playing Zelda through again was worth the 30 bucks. I hope you make a sturdier one of these at some point, brilliant piece of hardware.

1.0 out of 5 stars D-pad sensitivity makes games almost unplayable February 6, 2010
By TheDuck
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
When I saw this, I was excited about the prospect of playing the games of my childhood on my computer with the look and feel of the original (minus the blowing on cartridges). I loaded up an emulator, setup the controls to work with this controller, and started playing. Right away I noticed that while trying to move around, Mario would stop in his tracks. The D-pad is so sensitive, while you're pressing right or left, the slightest movement of your thumb will press up or down. This renders Super Mario Brothers unplayable.

Also of note, the buttons stick up further than on the original controllers, and feel less squishy. The start and select are also hard plastic and don't feel authentic (but, that's really not a HUGE issue). All in all, this was a huge disappointment; I guess you get what you pay for.

I'm now looking into an adapter for my original controllers from RetroZone, or just dusting off my 20+ year old console for when I feel the need for a SMB fix.

2.0 out of 5 stars Our 20 year old real controllers still work better :( February 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I got 4 usb controllers so my family could play Dr. Mario, the NES still works but requires 20 minutes of blowing on the cartridge/other voodoo, so I though these would be a worthy upgrade. At their best they don't work that well, with random jumps and pulls, at their worst you press down and they pull all the way to the right, making games unplayable. Disappointing, you would think today's technology would be able to replicate that of 20+ years ago. I was advised you can download old NES games to the wii, and one of their controllers has similar functionality, that would probably be a better experience.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did't Work August 21, 2013

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This product did not work on my Macbook. Do not buy it. Even if it did work the controller is extremely flimsy and will clearly fall apart after even moderate usage.

3.0 out of 5 stars D-Pad is absolute garbage.
This controller is not too bad... I have used it pretty extensively and the buttons hold up well. The main problem with this controller is the absolutely abysmal D-Pad. Read more

Very disappointed with this controller. The force required to get the buttons to register varies with each button. Overall the pressure required is to great. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars A passable facsimile.
This is a passable item as a recreation of a classic game controller. It feels great just upon holding it and just as intuitive as the source of inspiration. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong controller
I ordered a USB controller as advertised, I was sent a regular Nintendo controller, worthless since I needed it for a USB port.

Product was not as advertised or pictured. It was NOT a USB controller but had an original NES connection end on the cord.
