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.

4.0 out of 5 stars USB NES Controller December 7, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This a great item to have if you grew up with the NES system. It looks and feels just like the real thing. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because the control arrows are a bit touchy. When you press down, it sometimes goes to the right or left instead. It makes playing games like Mike Tyson's Punch Out a bit tough.

It's a lot of fun, though, and it is definitely worth the 15 bucks I paid for it. I highly recommend it for anyone who, like me, will always consider NES the best video game system ever made.

December 24th - update on controller...

About a week ago, the A button stuck and was difficult to use. It would un-stick itself after a while, but then after being pressed would get stuck again and so on. I got tired of Mario randomly jumping, so I took the controller apart and switched the A button with the B button. Now the B button gets stuck. But I figured I'd rather have Mario randomly shooting fire balls than jumping. Aside from that, it still works fine. While I had it apart, I turned around the arrows thinking that may possibly fix the issue I was having pressing the down arrow. It did not. The hardware itself must be a little fluky with that.

I still think it's worth the buy, but perhaps it should be around $10 at most. :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Total waste. I need a replacement July 9, 2014
I ordered this (USB CONTROLLER) and they sent me a 7-pin version... I also can't get a replacement because it's greyed out. Total waste. I need a replacement...

Although the item was labelet in the correct way, reporting the description of the product I ordered, the product itself was not the right one.

3.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good February 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My initial impressions of this controller are pretty good. It is the same size as a classic NES controller and has a very similiar feel. Windows XP recognized the controller right out of the box, just plug-in and play.

My only gripes are with the Start/Select buttons and the D-Pad. The Start/Select buttons function perfectly, but are hard plastic instead of the rubbery texture found on an actual NES controller, and as a result protrude further from the controller. The D-Pad feels exactly like the classic NES D-Pad, but it's much more sensitive. I often find the controller registering UP/DOWN when I am pressing LEFT/RIGHT. This can cause frustration in platformer games, such as Kid Icarus, where UP/DOWN stop your character in their tracks. But this controller is brand new, so perhaps the D-Pad will lose some of its sensitivity after some use.
