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.
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.
For starters, it isn't packaged well at all. It comes in the box shown on the page, but the controller itself is just wrapped up in a clear bag and thrown into the box. This opens the possibility for the controller to be broken the second you get it.
When I got mine, It immediately looked cheaply made. The outside of the controller lacks the matte finish of the original NES controllers. There were also no rubber buttons for start and select and are just made out of the hard plastic that the regular buttons are made out of. However, the casing itself felt pretty sturdy and the cord felt solid enough. So I figured it'd at least control well.
That hope ended once I got to the programming screen on my emulator. I discovered the D-pad was over sensitive to the left and right buttons and were often triggered if you press either up or down, making it almost impossible to just program the button layout.
Playing games with it? Don't even try. I suppose if you just need to control left or right, you'd be fine. But for most games, they'll need you to press the up and down buttons at some point.
Overall, This was a terrible shopping experience. I'd send the controller back, but it's not even worth the effort to ship it.
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. :)
