June 29, 2008: I owned a Wavebird and I want a second wireless controller. I read the amazon reviews, that was very helpful. Now I have the ShockWave and I agree with all the reviews. It's no difference with the Wavebird in accuracy, responsiveness and the controls are the same size than Wavebird. I bought the white because I read that the silver is painted and is worn with the usage. In conclusion this is an excellent wireless controller with the advantage of the rumble. Sometimes with the Wavebird I rotate by accident the channel control. With this controller I don't have this problem.
Nov 19, 2009: A year later the controller is working great!

I bought two of these and decided they were good enough to buy two more.

Pros:
-Relatively inexpensive.
-Long battery life (approximately 50 hours gaming with rumble on).
-Relatively light (most of the weight comes from the batteries) and comfortable.
-Range is excellent (for sure greater than 30').

Cons:
-With four of them in the Wii, they are clearly fighting for space pushing against each other. With three, you can't easily tell but plugging the fourth one in is tight fit.
-The joysticks seem not to be ultra sensitive so it is pretty hard to make characters move slowly/precisely in games.

Notes:
-Every controller comes with its own little box that plugs into the Wii.
-The controller is permanently bound to the box it came with. Think of it like an invisible cable connecting it so whatever controller is associated with the box is the player that controller will be.
-The packing is a bit hard to get the controller out of but you only have to do it once so it isn't that big of a deal.
-The light on the controller flashes slow when not connected to a controller box, it flashes fast when the batteries are almost dead, and it is steady when connected and has plenty of charge.
-The Wii Remotes stop working once you enter Gamecube mode. As such, the Bluetooth in the Wii goes off. That is why this comes with boxes that plug into the Wii.

I missed the rumble feature of the wired controllers when I went wireless on the wavebird. This shockwave controller is made of tougher high quality plastics that feel good in your hands and the angles of the handles suits me BETTER than the wavebird AND I got my rumble back... I sold the high priced bird. I would get more of these and you should too.

Normally, I would not suggest using a third party controller, as they have a tendancy to break easily and quickly. However, I have found this controller to be sturdy and accurate. I have used it with Smash Bros. Brawl and have not noticed any difference between it and a wired OEM controller.

The only downside is that the grip is a little different than that of an OEM Gamecube controller, but it is an adjustment that is not hard to make.

Bought this for use with a WII, playing Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. It worked perfectly for both; driving is much easier with this controller, and I highly recommend it for anyone playing Mario Kart seriously.

It also worked very well with Super Smash Bros. I found I had more control over my character with this controller.

Good:

The receiver and controller paired right away.
Wireless Gamecube controller for those classic games on the Wii.
Completely wireless, Wii remote ball-and-chain free, to play and roam about.
On and off switch to conserve batteries.
No channel settings (can be a bad).
Rumble for those that support it.

Alright:
Three AAA batteries... Could have went with the typical two AA batteries.

Bad:
Analog stick not as smooth as the Nunchuck or regular made by Nintendo Gamecube controllers. Bear to use for precise and accurate aiming. Hexagonal notches are WRONG. The notches are just plainly in the wrong places. Meaning if I hold up, the stick has two points to slip side to side to possibly and doesn't help me to lock in that UP.

UPDATE:
Very BAD:
After several months, the analog stick is stuck to having the game cursors, character, whatever movement to be stuck to going left. I have not found any remedy for this. I will be glad when the Official White Gamecube controller comes through (sacrificing wireless is a small price for quality) so I can continue to enjoy Virtual Console and the few Gamecube games I have.

Notes:
My controller from hours of playing has the sticks wear indentations in the plastic from mashing the wrong hexagonal indents.

Cliffs:
It is an alright controller (for awhile) but I would take the chance and get a Wavebird if I can or stick with the good ol wired Gamecube controllers.

Nintendo if you can hear all of your player base and fans, re-release the Wavebird, make the Classic controller completely ball and chain free from the Wiimote and work with Gamecube titles, or release that Classic Controller Pro in North America.

I had low expectations for a 3rd party controller at such an inexpensive price. My research on other wireless controllers had led me to believe that most 3rd party wireless contollers were junk, but I wasn't about to spend one hundred dollars on a used Wavebird.

I purchased this controller to play Virtual Console (The Legend of Zelda)and Gamecube (The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker) games on the Wii. So far, it has done an admirable job. The only time I've tried to use it and it hasn't worked right off the bat was with Mario Kart Wii. I did not troubleshoot to see if I could get this controller to work with that game, so it may or may not work.

Set up was quick and easy. Our power has gone out a few times, and the wireless connection picks back up where it left off.

I have had no problems with the size or layout of the controller. As a gamer who gets anxious during the nerve-wracking portions of a game, I probably press harder than I need to on the control buttons. After several months, this controller has held up well to about 8 hours of play per week.

I highly recommend this controller to Wii owners seeking a wireless controller to play Virtual Console and Gamecube games.
