ConsNot Wireless, Overpriced.

You may be thinking hold up I thought the whole appeal of the Wii was it didn't have to use use a normal pad. Why on earth would I want to spend a £10-15 on old technology. Well the main reason reason is the Virtual console which allows you to download old games from N64, Snes, Nes, Mega Drive...

“Classical gaming”

published 02/06/2007

ProRetro at its best

ConsNone

The Nintendo Wii has really taken the world of computer gaming by storm. In my opinion this is mainly the result of Nintendo looking at all aspects of gaming as we know it, and putting a completely different angle on it. The Nintendo Wii is not the first console to offer wireless controllers...

“Old school gaming!”

published 07/11/2011

Progood design

Consnot really wireless

The Wii Classic controller allows you to step back in time and play games the old fashioned way. It does not use the motion sensing ability of the wii so no jiggling around is needed! Some of the new Wii games will specify on the back whether you can use the controller to play their game or not...

Consnot wireless

The Nintendo classic controller is a wii remote accessory which is attatched into the slot in which you place the nunchuk. However, unlike the nunchuk, it is used on it's own and not in conjunction with the wii remote. The design is similair to that of the playstation controller. It has two...

“Must have for wii”

published 04/02/2007

ProMeans More games, cheapish

Consbad its needed at all. plugs into wii controller

As far as controllers go this is perfectly good. Two analog joysticks, easy to use, lots of buttons but doesn't confuse. It is a shame another controller is needed for the wii. This makes three, the main one, the numchuck, and the classic controller. So if buying a wii, and you want to play with...

ConsNot Good In Some Games

Amazing? Good? Fine? I would say this controller is a very good choice for any Wii owner. The Wii console has a various amount of games meaning that this product will be perfect for some specific games. If you enjoy the old arcade styled platform games, this is the controller for you! If your a...

Tuff one, no im serious!. This Classic remote as its named will allow you to play all the NES,SNES,N64 game you download off the Wii. Its a delight to hold and use but would you want to spend £15 on it or just keep using your Gamecube controller. Both do the same job. But anyway if you want a...
