This controller is an absolute must for any Virtual Console gamers out there.
It's pretty much essential to play SNES games (yes, the GameCube controller can be used, but the controls are extremely awkward) and it works very well for most other VC titles. However, there are a few games which feel a little fiddly to play. Maybe Nintendo could include customisable controls in a future Wii update?
The N64 games can be played more comfortably using the GameCube controller due to the placing of the analog stick, though they are still alright using this.
The Classic Controller clips in to the Wii Remote in the same fashion as the Nunchuk controller.
It's similar to the original SNES control pad, and feels very comfortable and natural to hold.
The Wii Menu and Wii Shop can be navigated using the controller, which can be handy at times when switching between games.
Mild control flaws prevent me from giving this 5*, but it is still a great controller and highly recommended.
