Customer Reviews

Warning: No ZL button support!Overall this item works great. I use it on my wii u for playing wii games (never owned a wii), and it works with both the old wii controller and the new motion plus controller, no problems. No input lag.One big downside I didn't see highlighted here: Since the gamecube controller had fewer buttons than the classic controller for wii, the 'z' button was mapped to 'ZR.' Unfortunately, I purchased this to play The Last Story among other wii RPGs, and ZL is absolutely required! Therefore, I'm going to still have to pick up a classic controller, which is too bad since I was excited to use my old but faithful gamecube controller. It would have been nice for them to have a start-Z combo for ZL at least, or a way to toggle what the gamecube Z button does... as-is this item unfortunately does not meet my needs.If you don't have any wii games that require ZL (and it is a pretty uncommon requirement), rest assured that this item works great as long as you don't get a dud. Two stars off because it doesn't work for what I wanted it to do, and this deficiency was not well-advertised.3Works well, but only as a classic controller, not a Wii U Pro Controller.The GC to Wii/Wii U adaptor works really well actually. The quality of the adaptor itself isn't the best, but it does for the most part what it needs to do. One disclaimer though is that it does have some form of false advertising. It does NOT work as a Wii U Pro controller as it needs the Wiimote to be on and games that do not require the Wiimote, have it automatically disconnected and cannot be reconnected. Excluding the Wii U Pro controller functionality that it doesn't have, it works well as the classic controller. For many people, it seems that once they connect the adaptor, it goes insane by pressing a whole mess of buttons, but just be patient as it seems to be setting up the connection while it blinks red. Once the blinking stops, it's all good. It is recommended that the Gamecube controller be connected first then the adaptor to the Wiimote. All the buttons are mapped respectively, even the Z button on the Gamecube controller is mapped as ZR, but that also means there is no ZL and as for the single start button, holding it is the minus(-) button, quick tapping it twice is the plus(+) button, and holding it is the home button. Of course, the problem is that the plus(+) button is recognized as the start button for every game, so if you need to enter the menu in any virtual console games (Wii/Wii U), you need to constently double tap. So for the most part, it's a pretty good alternative to buying an official classic controller. It has a turbo function, but I have not tried as I haven't needed it, so I can comment about whether it works or not.4A Winner Is (Almost) You!After the Wii removed its Gamecube ports and the Wii U removed Gamecube disc playback, breaking out my old controllers didn't really seem like a possibility. This little gizmo changed all that. The Gamecube controller has always been one of my favorites (1st party versions only). It's just so comfortable and responsive. I tested this product on both my Wii and my Wii U and it performed flawlessly. If you're worried about lag, don't be, there is none.There are only two things that prevent this adapter from achieving greatness. First, the port your GC controller plugs into isn't the snuggest thing around. It gets the job done, but I think you'll find it unplugs quite easily if barely tugged upon. And second, the 'Start' button of the GC controller must be pressed twice in succession to be registered as a a push of the 'Start' button. One push acts as 'Select'. This is fairly inconvenient as the majority of the games you'll be using this with use the START button a LOT more than the SELECT. As such if you're playing a Virtual Console classic like Zelda: Ocarina of Time, you'll have to push START twice to bring up your menu screen. A very strange choice on the part of the manufacturer.Aside from that, this little gadget it pretty darn amazing. Dust off your old GC controllers. This is THE best way to play N64 Virtual Console titles. I have a Wii U Pro Controller but so far Nintendo has released no N64 VC titles for us to fiddle with.4Of Good Intentions, but...While it seems like a good idea in practice, the execution is rather poor. First let me say that just connecting the two different controllers is rather annoying, as it feels like one has to plug the two in a particular order (the Wii remote first, then the GameCube controller it feels like), but it doesn't generally feel like it is plugged in, except when you plug it in right and lay the Wii remote on the ground. And that's not even the primary issue about this device. While it certainly does have the GameCube controller look like a Wii Classic Controller (and Wii Classic Controller Pro),most of the controls aren't going to operate in the correct area as originally for the GameCube controller. For example in the Wii version of Sonic Unleashed, the "B" button is the jump button, the "Y" button is the slide button, and the "X" button is the boost button. I don't know how it yet feels on an actual Wii Classic controller, but it feels so awkward using that control scheme on an actual GameCube controller, especially when compared to the actual GameCube controls on the game, as it actually has complete support (again talking about the the Wii version) for the GameCube controller, and also that it feels a lot better using the GameCube controller AS the GameCube controller. I didn't even play long enough with this particular configuration to see how it was in the night stages, but the GameCube controls are very good there as well. This device (if you ask me) poorly translates the controls of the Wii Classic controller onto the GameCube, as it feels that it wasn't taken into much consideration that the Wii Classic controller and the GameCube controller are two VERY different controllers in how they operate. It would've been much better if this device had a function that could not only make the (video) game register the controller as a Wii Classic controller, but also have it FUNCTION as an actual GameCube controller, with or without GameCube support already programmed into (video) game itself.2Works as advertisedTested two of these for about 15 minutes each; both seem to work as promised.Things to keep in mind:- Since there are more buttons on the classic controller than the GameCube controller, the start button on the game cube controller is designed to work as both the start AND select buttons. Hit it once, select is sent. Hit it twice (quickly) and the start button is used. So it may appear at first as though the start button doesn't work if you don't know this fact.- Lag seems to be non existent. I couldn't tell the difference between using this or the GameCube controller directly (I tested this on my Wii; bought it for the Wii U for Smash 4).- Note that this is ONLY useful for games that have Classic Remote support. It will not work if the game won't let you use a classic remote. All this does is turn your gamecube controller into a classic remote.- As everyone else mentioned, the part where you slide your GC controller into the adapter is relatively loos. However, just put the adapter close to you on the floor and that shouldn't be a problem at all. I had no issues with it at all.I have read a bunch of other reviews that say that these fail quickly, but in the short time that I've been using it thus far, I haven't had any complaints and predict I'll be buying two more in a month or two when I can justify spending the $30 or so for the pair.5A solid adapter, but not without its issues.I bought this adapter to play Super Smash Bros. Brawl on my Wii U, since there are no Gamecube controller ports on the Wii U and the Gamecube controller is one of my favorite controllers to play Smash Bros. and Virtual Console games with.Currently this is the only controller adapter that allows you to use your Gamecube controllers on Wii U. That will all change this winter, however, when PDP comes out with its Gamecube-inspired fight pad (which is officially licensed by Nintendo), and Nintendo themselves come out with their Gamecube controller adapter for Wii U. But if you can't wait for those products to come out and want to go ahead and start breaking in your Gamecube controllers, this is a great adapter to use.Essentially, it does as advertised, which is to say that it causes the Wii U console to recognize the Gamecube controller as a Wii Classic Controller. Unfortunately, because it does that, it also encounters a few issues.Since Wii Classic Controllers have three buttons in the center (the "-" button, the HOME button, and the "+" button), and the Gamecube only has one (the Start/Pause button), they decided to map all three Classic Controller buttons to the Gamecube's Start/Pause button. So if you want to press "-", you press the Start button once, if you want to press "+", you hit the Start button twice, and if you want to go to the home menu, you hold down the Start button for a couple seconds. While it's nice that they at least have a workaround for this issue, it does feel a little imprecise.Another thing you'll notice is that the pressure-sensitive L and R shoulder buttons on a Gamecube controller no longer work the way they used to. You have to click the L and R buttons all the way down for it to register the button press. That's to be expected, since the Wii's classic controllers do not have the analog triggers Gamecube has. There's also no ZL button, and the Z button on the Gamecube controller reacts the same way the ZR button does on the Classic Controller.If those were the only issues, I would give it five stars, since those are fairly minor setbacks. But whenever I first plug the Gamecube controller into the adapter, it spazzes out a little bit. The LED on the adapter flashes a lot, and the HOME Menu opens and closes over and over again. This goes on for about 15-30 seconds before I'm actually able to use the controller with no hangups. After that first few seconds, it works fine, but it does freak out on me a little bit before it actually becomes functional. Not sure if this is a problem with only my adapter or if this is consistent across all of them.Overall though, if you're willing to get over the expected button switch-ups and the brief spaz-out when you first plug in the controller, this adapter is fully functional and Gamecube controllers now work with my Wii U like a charm. It'll be interesting to see how well this stacks up to the other options coming out when Super Smash Bros. for Wii U hits stores, but for now this is a great option.4Best and only adapter for Gamecube on Wii USo my title describes this adapter very well, though the adapter is actually quite good. At first when I tried it out by connecting it into a Wii remote and then plugging in a controller, the cursor was slowly moving toward the top of the screen. I simply unplugged the adapter (leaving the controller attached) and plugged it back in again. Usually this is a common problem when the joystick is offcenter when the controller is connected, but this time that wasn't the case. Despite this connect and reconnect, it hasn't happened since. The responsiveness despite going from a controller, through the adapter, through the wii remote and back to the Wii U is still very precise and responsive. I was very impressed. Because the adapter is emulating a classic controller, the start button does need to be pressed twice quickly to function as a typical "START" button press. Pressing and holding the same button for several seconds will bring up the HOME screen. This isn't a problem at all in game and is just an fyi for anyone purchasing this adapter, as this is the way it has to be. With that said, this is a great controller and is highly recommended if you prefer your Gamecube controller and plan on picking up Smash Bros and or Mario Kart next year. This adapter works for any and all things from Wii U games supporting the Classic Controller to Wii mode on the Wii U and everything supporting the classic controller there. Also works well on the original Wii, should you simply need to have the controller used in a location that is further than the cable would reach the Wii.5Glitchy, and is NOT compatible with Wii U Pro ControllerGetting it to work on the Wii side isn't too difficult. Plug the adapter into the Wiimote and the controller into the adapter, and then let it activate random button sequences until it stops. It takes about 15 seconds and then everything works fine until next time you turn the system on when you have to do it all over againThe Wii U is a different story. Plug the adapter into the Wiimote first. Then plug the controller into the adapter and wait about 10 seconds to see if it stops activating random buttons. If not, unplug the controller and wait again. Repeat this step until it stops. The red light on the adapter should stop flashing when it works.It's a pain, but it's pretty much the best option for GC and N64 VC games. -1 star for the hassle.Also worth noting is that the box clearly states that this is compatible with the Wii U Pro controller. It is not. When turning on a game that supports only Wii U controllers, the Wiimotes shut off, rendering this controller useless for that function. -2 stars for false advertising. There's no excuse for lying, Mayflash.2Perfect for BrawlI've switched all of my Wii playing to the Wii U since its WiiMode upscales to 1080p and you have the added benefit of a digital signal through HDMI versus the not as crisp component image of the original Wii.One of the downsides was no longer being able to play Super Smash Bros. Brawl with a GameCube controller; it's always felt awkward to me to use a Classic Controller for this game, having played so many years of Melee.This adapter fixes that problem and far as I can tell is highly responsive with no lag or cutting out even with my Japanese import white GameCube controller with a six-foot cord. WaveBirds work great as well, so long as nothing is blocking the path from the controller to the receiver. (WaveBirds had this problem even on the GameCube itself.)The only slight annoyance is the function of the Start button: pressing it once acts as the Select (-) button on a Classic Controller, so you have to rapidly press it twice to have it actually work as a Start (+) button. It's not a huge problem, and it makes sense to do it this way if you intend to use it for any Virtual Console games that have an important in-game use for Select--like Super Metroid, for example (Select to switch weapons)--but it can feel a little tedious when all you wanna do is choose a game mode or pause the game and needing to press it twice.Apparently this adapter has troubles with Wii MotionPlus remotes. I've not tested it with one, but just passing that along.I own two of these, ordered six months apart, and both were sold by TOTALCONSOLE (fulfilled by Amazon) as they usually have the lowest price. No problems where that's concerned. Now I can Brawl with a friend.Save the cardboard back of the packaging so you have the instructions on how the Start button and Turbo functionality work.5A little tricky to set up, but works great!I always hated playing certain games on the wii with the wiimote. Super smash brothers was just no fun at all. I recently got a Wii U and dug up my old collection of games. After struggling with the Wiimote, I looked online for alternatives. I have the pro controller, but didn't want to buy three more of these so I could play with my friends. I already had a handful of gamecube controllers, and this adapter works perfectly! It's a little hard to get it connected, but the included instructions work as expected. You have to first connect the adapter to the wiimote, then connect the gamecube controller to it. At first, the cursor on the screen goes crazy and shoots around the screen, but after 5-10 seconds it recognizes everything and it works. There is zero lag with this adapter, and I can play all my games just like I used to. Many games have an option in the menu under "controller" or "controls" that lets you set it to use a gamecube controller. Even games that don't have this can still be played using a gamecube controller. For someone who has an old controller laying around and wants more accuracy with their classic and current games, this is highly recommended. ESPECIALLY ON MARIO KART!!!! No more wiimote and wheel combo. =)4
