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.

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.

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.

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.

If you're looking for a true-to-form NES controller that handles like a dream, I'd recommend NOT picking this one up.

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.

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. :)
