"Great for VC games"
5 stars"

Great controller, but why would you ahem other review* give something a bad review because YOU didn't do your homework. But it is true. It only plays Virtual Console games. But there is 6 or so different virtual consoles ON Virtual Console. And all of these (eg. SNES, N64) DON'T necessarily work with the wii remote, or gamecube controller.

So buy one of these as it is your best bet you can therefore play ALL the types of VC games on the Wii !!!

Don't buy it for anything else, as all it is good for is VC games.

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Excellent controller for the old-school games, nice white finish matches with the Wii. Very comfortable. P.S. I would highly recommend downloading ‘The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time’. Extremely good game.

"Not entirely classic"
3 stars"

This is a good pad, and would have scored higher if it were not for the misleading description text. The product description suggests that you can use the pad to play your Gamecube games on Wii, but that is not the case. Quite disappointing. A must have for avid Virtual Console fanatics, and looks like it may be the controller of choice for Super Smash Bros.

The Classic Controller is designed to work together with the Wii Remote on the Wii console.

Created for accessibility and comfort, the Classic Controller blends design elements from game systems such as the NES¨, Super NES¨, and Nintendo 64¨ providing seamless play control for a wide range of games. The Classic Controller is primarily used for playing Virtual Console games on the Wii Shop Channel. Also look on the back of Wii Game Disc packaging to see which games use the Classic Controller.
