Durability- 10/10 The durability of this thing is awesome. I have extremely large dogs (an English Mastiff and a Chocolate Lab) and they have stepped on, slobbered on, and knocked this thing off of a four foot table, but this thing works fine!!! It has taken quite a beating.
Precision- 10/10 The precision is just as good as a first party controller. Since the Wavebird is from Nintendo, I'm not suprised. I have bought (along with the Wavebird) Resident Evil 4, where bad aim is your downfall. The controller hasn't failed me yet.
Battery Life- 10/10 This pad lasts 100 hours on a single charge (2 AA batteries included). To preserve battery life, Nintendo took the Rumble feature off. You won't notice it's gone, and if you do, you need a more exciting game.
Price- 7/10 The controller is THIRTY dollars. That's expensive. I bought this thing new at a local GameXchange, and I was suprised by how much it cost. But if you have large dogs or small children in your house, then it is worth it.
This controller is excellent, and Nintendo made it well. But if you don't live in an enviroment where spending $30 for a wireless controller makes life easier, I recommend buying an extension cable.
You choose a frequency to use (by rotating a numbered dial on both the controller and the receiver that plugs into the controller port on the Cube), which allows you to use up to 4 Wavebirds at a time (should an aggressive Super Smash Bros Melee match be in your future).
The controller also has an on/off switch, which allows you to shut it off and save extra battery life, which is a nice touch. I also appreciate the red light on the receiver, which lights up when it receives the signal from the Wavebird (making it very easy to tell if you are in range).
The only complaint that I have is one that Nintendo has addressed, namely the lack of Rumble functionality. To paraphrase Nintendo, to add the rumble feature would have greatly shortened the battery life of the controller. For many games, the lack of rumble feature isn't an issue, and the WaveBird works perfectly. For those games that rumble is a major part of, I just use an extension cable for my wired controller. ;)
I've used it for racing games like Burnout and Need for Speed, and sports games like Madden 2005 and NBA Street, and others like Mario and Animal Crossing. It seems to work fine for me - but I'm no pro gamer either, so take that for what it's worth.
I like the durability, reliability, and ease of this product. It was more than worth the money.

Love it. I personally think that this remote is better than the Wii remote because the Wii remote needs a direct path to the sensor, as the wavebird does not. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Josh Dawidowicz
