I am 43 years old, and not a big gamer, occasionally play on the Wii U with my daughter, maybe a game here and there online. I bought this for my 10 year old daughter to use for Mario Kart on her Wii U, well more like ME to use since she always gets to use the fancy remote with the little joystick thingie. I suck; I can not master the art of using the regular remote sideways, I just can't do it. I'm the one in last place. So, tried out the wheel, and big difference. Now I'm finishing like 5th and 6th place instead of 10th or 12th. As for this specific product, I have nothing to compare it to, but I have not noticed any issues in the past week of using it. Definitely made playing easier and more enjoyable. For the price, and you get two? Definitely worth it IMO.
