    works, but not my favorite

    I was in the store and was picking up new controllers, and went with this instead of a new Wii remote because it worked standalone and I wanted to add a gamepad as well; two birds with one stone. It is functional, but the buttons are not in my favorite locations and thus make them difficult to get used to. I have large hands and thought they wouldn't be difficult, but I still found myself primarily using the A button only on Smash Brothers. While watching the screen, I would think I'm reaching to push B, but end up only making it to A. I may just need to get used to it, but if I can't do B that easily, I can't imagine if X and Y are needed. It feels like they tried to copy XBox's controller but had to make changes to avoid the patents, but moving the XYBA location wasn't, in my opinion, the way to go. I won't be buying another one of these in the future. I'll likely focus on adding Wii remotes and GameCube controllers instead. Hopefully others had better luck

    A purchase for a small percentage of Wii gamers

    Most people buying the Wii U are expecting the "family" gaming experience. This controller does nothing to enhance that experience. It is your typical XBox 360 style controller, so as you might assume it is best used with games you play by yourself. You're not playing Mario Kart with this. When I bought the system and noticed it only came with the tablet controller, I started grabbing the Wii Remote controllers. The Best Buy salesman steered me away from those and to this controller. He was dead wrong. A week later I was back spending $120 on Wii Remotes and Nunchuks. This controller just lays around and does nothing. A waste of $50 and it just doesn't fit in the "Wii" experience. If you are a solo gamer that owns all the systems, this is the controller for you. But then I wonder - why play "those" games on Wii when you could just as easily spend the same amount and play them on XBox One or PS4.

    Nice controller for someone with huge hands... my small hands are having trouble playing long hrs.... I wish this controller was modeled after the PS4's controller... the Wii U controller is a must if you're playing the new Zelda game.. it's tiresome playing with the game pad especially in battle mode

    I was so disappointed that this doesnt work with most games, and some of the ones it does work with it has to be used for player 2. even then it feels like a cheap 3rd party controller. Unfortunately it is the best controller for the wii u so i have to recommend it.

    This is a lot better than the pad with the screen. However, it really fails compared to the xbox/playstation controllers.

    Not compatible with a lot of games, so it wasn't worth it for me.
