It comes in one of those horrid "you need a scissor to open, and cut yourself from the plastic" plastic packaging that inevitably scraped my hand, but luckily didn't draw any blood.

The package contains the controller (obviously), a small wireless adapter that attaches to the bottom of the Wii-remote (where the nunchuck's cord would attach), a pair of non-rechargeable AAA batteries, and two big-sheet manuals rolled into little bundles (each has a different set of languages).

Pros:
+ Controller feels solid (no squeeks or give).
+ Small remote adapter frees you from the cord you'd otherwise tether between the official classic controller and the remote.
+ Buttons layout (including "trigger" buttons by index fingers) is the same as the official classic controller.
+ Buttons layout played fine with Megaman 9 (virtual console game), with each color pair (right red button and blue buttons) both replicating remote's buttons 1 & 2, so you can use whichever pair you like.
+ Can recharge if using AAA NiMH batteries (not included) via mini-USB cable (not included).
+ More comfortable to hold than the standard remote.

Cons:
- Only two controllers can be used at once (wireless adapter and controller only have two pair settings: slow blink and fast blink). Meaning, only up to 2 people can use Wii Wing Wireless Controller, while players 3 & 4 need to use an official classic or standard remote.
- Didn't work with Tetris Party (virtual console game).
- Buttons feel a bit mushy, but it's a personal preference.
- Lag! It MAY be psychological, but when playing Megaman 9, there seemed to be a slight lag (0.5s) in pressing a button (eg. jump) and the game actually registering it.

I bought this controller hoping it would be a wireless replacement for my Classic Controller Pro. The main problems I faced immediately were the placement of the analog sticks. They are far too close. This may not affect you, but I have always used the ball of my thumbs for the analog sticks and now they keep hitting each other when I try to play Xenoblade. The other aspects of the control fail in comparison to the Classic Controller Pro as well, such as the enormously spaced out buttons, awkward shoulder buttons, big, flimsy D-Pad, and worse of all flat grip.

Now I should remind you that despite all this the Wing is a phenomenal improvement over the original Classic Controller. However, many bad designs from the original CC also carrried over to the Wing, which is why the CCP is still better. The only advantages I can think of are the fantastically smooth analog sticks (better even than the DualShock3 IMO), wireless, and hard, responsive buttons.

It's a huge shame this couldn't live up to the Classic Controller Pro. I really wish Nyko would make a new wireless version, but given the current circumstances of the Wii, I can't really see that happening.

Works perfectly for what you need. Set-up is easy and I haven't noticed any lag in controller response worth mentioning. I've downloaded a number of SNES virtual console titles and haven't had an issue yet. Using the analog controls for classic games is a nice option as well.

The controller fits nicely in the palms of my hand, its not too light or bulky. After reviewing all other available wireless options for the Wii I found this one to be the best option and wasn't disappointed. If you're interested in using your Wii for classic games I'd say this is a must.

I've used this controller for two weeks now with no issues, I'll update my review later down the road to document any issues that arise with repeated long term use.

Update 9/15/10: Controller has never given me any issues to date and still works perfectly. Have been using it quite a bit for Arc Rise Fantasia. Love this controller.

I decided to order a pair of these controllers along with my copy of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, and so far I've been very pleased with them. The Wing looks pretty awkward judging by the handful of photos of it available online, but I think it looks quite nice and very well-made in person. In most aspects the Wing compares favorably to the first-party Classic Controller, with a few notable differences. I find the Wing to be more comfortable to play with over long periods of time because of its ergonomic design (and not being awkwardly tethered to the Wii Remote). The controller's performance is also quite good; fighting games like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and Brawl require fast response times and the Wing definitely delivers. I was initially worried about connecting through a wireless dongle, but extensive sessions in the aforementioned games revealed no signal disruption or input lag worth speaking of (even on an LCD). Overall, I would say the Wing is a great alternative to the Classic Controller and an easy recommendation considering it currently goes for about 50-75% the cost of the first-party controller at most retail stores. Nyko even offers a wired version of the controller at a lower price, for those that are worried about wireless response time or battery life.

Other notes:
* D-Pad feels slightly mushier than on the Classic Controller, but is responsive nonetheless. Double-tap, quarter/half-circle, DP, charge and 360° motions posed no problem.
* Analog stick restrictors are circular, unlike the 8-way restrictors on the Classic Controller. Can be a pro or con depending on your preference.
* Left analog stick can be used to navigate Wii Menus.
* ZR and ZL buttons are slightly easier to reach compared to the Classic Controller.
