By 2008, I think it is reasonable for Hori and Nintendo (who have emblazoned this product with their official Seal of Quality) to assume that anyone who is serious enough a gamer to consider paying $40+ for a controller will probably know the difference between digital and analog inputs. If you've ever played an N64, Gamecube or PS2 game, you know this difference innately. Granted, the Amazon product page for this item is sorely lacking any specific information, but luckily for internet users Amazon isn't the only website in existence. I bought this from a brick & mortar game store, and nowhere on the box was I led to believe that this would be compatible with Super Smash Bros. Brawl (contrary to one of the negative reviews on this page). In fact, using the magic of the internet, I researched the product for about five minutes before I went out to buy it and discovered that it would definitely not be compatible with Brawl, and the reason why: the stick uses digital inputs (with 8 points as on classic arcade machines and d-pad consoles) rather than the velocity-sensitive 360-degree analog input that most games of the past 2 generations of console gaming have used.
This is an old school arcade stick for old school shooting games and fighting games.Read more ›
The joystick is heavy enough I didn't have to worry about it moving when I played.
I can play Neo*Geo fighters now (with the normal wiimote turned sideways, the button configuration rendered some fighting games unplayable).
The joystick is responsive and feels like playing in the arcade.
None of these are deal breakers, just minor gripes.
I wish I could assign buttons. Neo Geo's were set up four buttons across. Playing World Heroes, you use two buttons on the bottom row (punch and kick), and one button on the top row (throw) instead of 3 buttons across.
The microswitches are fairly loud.
Random side note - The turbo worked incredibly well on World Heroes, but didn't work as well on the vertical shooter Dragon Spirit. Not a big deal to me though, as I don't plan on using the turbo switches that often.
Now I need to go download Samuari Showdown.

To be fair, the Wii doesn't utilize this stick well because there aren't many competitive fighting games or arcade games on the platform. Read morePublished 21 months ago by romevi

First, we must look at what type of controller this is. It is a fighting stick controller made specifically for fighting games. Read morePublished on December 6, 2011 by Art
