Where Gaming Comes Alive

A Quick Tip by KingreX32

  • Aug 9, 2013
One of the major selling points of the Nintendo Wii was its motion controls. Lots of people bought the system in order to play their games in different ways. But eventually this gimmick got tired and many people wanted a more traditional controller as opposed to the Wiimote and Nunchuck. Cues the Classic Controller. A tiny small (yes I said that) controller for use with Virtual console games and a few other titles. Eventually the classic controller was redesigned and re-released as the classic controller pro, with a larger size and grips so that it would be easier and more comfortable to hold. While I did appreciate this new controller design I really didn't like how it felt. For me i felt that the buttons could have been a bit closer together, and the lack of a rumble feature also puzzled me. Nonetheless I Am happy Nintendo released this controller say at the time many Wii games were insanely difficult to play due to the complicated motion controls developers were half assedly tacking on to their games.

This controller combines the easy grip of a Gamecube controller with the buttons of Super Nintendo. I tried it on a few games and liked it. Furthermore, it plugs into the Wii remote, so it is essentially a wireless controller. This little device has opened up a whole new world of games on the Wii!
