However, the Trigger buttons are a pain. The take a lot force/pressure to press. More than reasonable. It's ridiculous. It might cause anger if you're playing a game that relies heavily on them.
As with most items today, if your PC is better than Windows 98 (or possibly XP) you can just discard the waste of a installation disk that came with this item.
Seems the trigger buttons (L and R) don't have analog like the original controller. This makes some games impossible to play.
If you're willing to pay double, I recommend grabbing the Mayflash adapter and picking up a used GameCube controller from GameStop. I happen to be lucky enough to have some Smash Bros controllers around, so the Mayflash is all I needed.
I purchased this controller so I could use the L and R trigger buttons with GameCube emulators such as Dolphin, but sadly the controller triggers just don't seem to have the firmware to support proper analog use where a light pressure has one result and pressing the trigger fully down gives the second result, a requirement in many, many, many GameCube games. Since this defeats the purpose for which I got the controller I had to return it. It's a perfectly serviceable controller, but not for what it's supposed to do, being a GameCube replica controller and all.
If you want to be able to use proper triggers in games like Super Mario Sunshine, do yourself a favor and get a real GameCube controller from Nintendo and a USB adapter like the MayFlash one instead.
1) It's basically a GameCube controller.
2) It's cheap.
1) The left stick and C stick are not nearly as pressure sensitive as a real controller. They also have huge dead zones and feel stiff.
2) The Z button is not in the same spot as a real controller. It's further to the left, I think, and definitely a lot closer to the controller body. It also has a nasty clicky feel, rather than the softer, more tactile feel of the real one.
3) The worst thing about this controller is that the L and R analog triggers don't work. They function as buttons, whether you're half pressing or whether you pull them till they click. So if you're, for instance, using Dolphin to play a game that uses the analog triggers, like Super Mario Sunshine or Luigi's Mansion, you won't be able to play correctly, and it's not something I could ever just get used to, because for a lot of games that use the analog, it breaks the gameplay.
4) They ship the drivers on an 80mm mini CD, and there is no website, period. So if you have no optical drive or a slot-loading optical drive and no access to an external, drawer-loading drive, you're straight out of luck if you want to get it working properly. It's technically plug-and-play, but the drivers are essential for proper function.
I bought this specifically to play emulated GCN games. If it breaks half the games, then it just isn't worth it. Don't waste your time with this product. It's cheap, yes, but do yourself a favor and invest in the official USB adapter.

Like a lot of 3rd party controllers, the analog stick sucks.Read more
