Wii Remote Controller
To make gaming as accessible to people of all ages and all abilities, Nintendo wanted to create a controller that was as inviting as it was sophisticated- the result is the Wii Remote. Nintendo fused the global familiarity of a remote control with the sophistication of motion-sensing technology to come up with an input device that differentiates the Wii from any other console that has come before it.
Sporting the dimensions of a small traditional remote control, the wireless Wii Remote is a multifunctional device that is limited only by the game designer's imagination. The magic of the Wii Remote's design lies within; acellerometers inside the controller body measure movement in all directions and at all speeds. In a tennis game, it serves as your racket as you swing your arm for a long forehand or a quick and hard backhand. In a 4x4 driving game it serves as a steering wheel, allowing you to swerve to avoid obstacles or pickup power-ups. In first-person shooters, the Wii Remote acts as a firearm that you can point directly at an on-screen enemy. The list of potential uses is enormous, and the light weight of the Wii Remote allows gamers to play for hours without feeling fatigued.
The Wii Remote boasts impressive technology for such a compact package.

As comfortable as it is functional
The Wii Remote is equally comfortable in right and left hands and houses just the right number of buttons for gaming- not so many that new players will get confused, but enough so that Wii games don't feel constrained. On the face of the remote are the D (or "plus") pad, a large "A" button which is used for major on-screen actions, and two small options buttons. Between the game buttons are a plus and minus buttons (which often act as "forwards" and "back"), as well as a "Home" button to engage the Wii home screen to change settings or check remote battery levels. On the back side of the controller is a trigger-like "B" button, perfect for timing releases of a bowling roll in Wii Sports.
Thankfully, battery life is excellent with the two included AA batteries, just as with the previous generation of Nintendo wireless controllers.
Along the bottom of the Wii Remote, four blue LED lights indicate which player position the remote is currently set to. The controller automatically connects to the Wii console via Bluetooth wireless technology. Below the LEDs, an expansion port lets you connect a number of devices including the Nunchuck and Classic controllers for Virtual Console gaming (Virtual Console games and controller accessories sold separately). Other features of the Wii Remote include adjustable rumble force-feedback and a reinforced wrist strap to ensure safe use. A speaker inside the remote gives the player feedback about the strength of swings or the accuracy of their moves- such as realistic tennis noises as the "racket" connects with the ball in Wii Sports. Overall, the physical design of the remote is extremely sturdy and of very high quality, ensuring countless hours of Wii gaming fun!

We decided to buy two, and so far they look good. I checked them on various websites about fake remotes. I found two little differences, one was the plastic was a little different in the battery chamber, and the other difference was in the stamp on the end where you hook up the nunchuck. Everything else matched up with the real remote checklists. We've used them for several hours of playing now and seem to work just as well as our other real remotes.
The other difference was the packaging. These remotes just game wrapped in foam with an instruction manual. There was no plastic box like is shown in the picture. It makes me wonder if Nintendo is trying to phase these out so they can make more money on the remote plus, but they ordered a new batch because people are still buying these.
We'll update here if something goes wrong with them.
I'm giving this three stars because I have nothing to say about it's functionality, only that it's not an original Wiimote, which is the only reason I bought it. It may well work exactly like an original, though.
I've taken some images off Google to show the difference. The original is the more circular camera, whereas the one in mine was the more rosebud shape.
But Heads Up: I did not know the proper sync procedure when I tried to get it to work. I pressed the red button below the batteries and watched it blink to no avail. After some frustration, I looked up the problem and learned there is more to re-syncing a Wii controller, or adding a new one than that.
There are TWO sync buttons which must be pressed in sequence. The first is the one in the battery compartment. The second is inside the door of the SD card latch.
Press the battery one first, note the Wii beginning to blink -- then press the one in the SD card compartment. That was the trick.
Tested the remote and played a couple of bowling games with no difference in control or responsiveness than the original had (which I had managed to kill by messing with a cheap recharger).
We happen to have both the Sony PSP3, for the 'serious' Video Gamers, and then we have the Wii Player for the Teen's. The Teen's and some adult's feedback is that they just love playing the various Nintendo Wii Games, and they give High Mark's to the Wii remote controller, with the attached Nunchuck's.

One need be careful. Some ppl think you need to get seriously physical and concsequently injure themselves. My grandson sits on the couch during bowling and gets strike after strike merely snapping the remote in a short motion. (kids his age know the cheat codes I guess)
As for me, I flail around, knock over expensive lamps, hit other participants, and sometimes fall down from too much alcohol (for those interest, expensive scotch works best.)
DO NOT BUY the knock-offs from Hong Kong (if it seems to cheaps, it is) as they suck worse than a hoover or electrolux. I initially bought three and ended up returning each as they did not work properly (slow balls 'ha') etc. and were very disappointing even considering the low cost. Get the real McCoy (unless you are a Hatfield)
Game monster approaching 60
The old remote has only some functions that do not work so we still keep it. It was placed in a Mario Cart wheel and tossed onto our sofa a few times but that, apparently, was enough to throw it off. These remotes are very sensitive and I think my son learned that lesson the hard way ([...]out of his allowance).
FYI: the wii accessories have a 90 day warranty.
