I used to have a Wavebird (Nintendo's official wireless Gamecube controller) and I loved it dearly. The one thing that sucked about it though was that it didn't have a rumble feature, so I was excited to find a wireless controller that also rumbled. However, a side-by-side comparison of this product to a regular wired GC controller showed that it only vibrates at about half the intensity of the original. Maybe mine was a fluke, but who knows.

Another disappointing feature of this controller is a small but very important detail (in my opinion at least). The left thumb stick is surrounded by an octagonal cutout, like the original. However, the original octagon is positioned so that the peaks are at the very top, bottom, left, right, etc. On this controller, they are rotated so that the top/bottom/etc. are flat. That doesn't seem like a big deal until you realize how much time you spend with the thumb stick straight up to move forward. Originally it went right into the notch and that was that, but now you have to focus on not letting it slight slightly left or right into a notch that has you moving at a now slightly altered angle. It may sound like I'm being nit-picky, but you will definitely notice if you are used to playing on actual Nintendo controllers.

Overall it's a decent product. Aside from what I've already stated and a few other small things (L/R triggers take less resistance to fully click, Z button takes more resistance) it's a pretty decent controller. I've only had mine for a few days so I can't comment on battery life, but another review says that it lasted long enough for him to beat Windwaker (which is a pretty long game). It's not the Wavebird-with-rumble replica I was hoping for, but since it was only $15 I'll definitely still hold on to it.

I've never had any particular luck with Gamestop's brand of cheap controllers, especially since the wired controllers I had bought when I first got my Wii all had minor issues right out of the of box. When I wanted to upgrade to some wireless controllers I was worried that my only choices were that brand or the ridiculously over-priced Nintendo Wavebirds. That's when I did a bit of research and found the Komodo Shockwave controller.

It's fully functional, completely serviceable, and the only downside I've seen with it so far have been the comparatively short battery life (as compared to the wireless controllers on my other systems, which run on rechargable AAs). Still, you could do way, way worse. If you want a wireless gamecube controller and don't want to pay an arm and a leg for the Wavebird, this is the one to get.

Controller is build well, and looks nice and all, but after only two sessions of playing, it would no longer connect to the receiver even after trying new batteries. Save your money and do not buy this wireless controller.

Problem getting the Komodo Shockwave Wireless White Controller for Wii and Gamecube to sync. Don't know why this is not working.

This is the worst controller I have ever bought. Brand new out of the box the right trigger does not work at all. When I was using it for the first time, the controller started rumbling almost uncontrollably and then lost signal. I turned the controller off and then back on and it got the signal back, but that's when I figured out the right trigger does not work.

I have been playing video games for almost 40 years. From Pong to PS3, I've had all the home systems and used dozens of controllers. This thing is the biggest piece of crap I have ever bought.

It's a shame I have to give it a star at all, because it doesn't even deserve that!

Do not go into buying something that is third party without expecting some "abnormalities". I find that the right trigger button on the pad doesn't work with SOME games, very rare though. I think it must have something to do with the programming of the game, or maybe the game picks it up differently when the signal is sent to the console. I'm really not sure, but I love this controller. Works fine on a slew of games, not too sensitive. Feels durable, to me anyway, but I clean and take care of my gaming equipment. I have used it for about a week now and it has been nothing but great. Wind waker will not play correctly, sadly, but that is the only game I have had trouble with. I have two wired controllers and two extenders anyway, so I wasn't that upset. I recommend buying a cheap wired controller to go with this one. All in all, greatly satisfied. :D

This is a pretty solid feeling controller. Unfortunately, the L&R trigger buttons are missing their analog sensitivity. To explain, each shoulder button has two functions: a variable analog range that corresponds to how hard you're pushing down, and a digital input that corresponds to whether the button is being pushed all the way down until it clicks. The former function is broken, and games that call for it (eg Super Mario Sunshine) are not playable. Whether this is a design flaw, or just a problem with the particular unit I received, I can't be certain, and I certainly won't be ordering another to find out.

Otherwise, it's about par for a 3rd party controller; some of the buttons seemed to require a bit more force than usual to register, but it seems built sturdily enough. Very difficult to recommend, all considered.
