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.
