This controller is for the Wii (plugs into the Wiimote where the Nunchuk normally goes) and gives you a GameCube controller look and feel. It's a real licensed Nintendo product but not actually designed by them, and that's the problem.The ZL/ZR buttons are too recessed so your finger will hit the gamepad shell before the button is fully depressed. There's too much vertical travel compared to the GameCube pad.Likewise the left analog stick is raised significantly higher than any of the other controls on the face of the pad. To move from the D-pad to the left analog stick you have to lift your thumb up a much higher distance than you did on the GameCube pad, where switching between the two was easy. Sounds minor but in practice it's irritating.Overall this pad isn't terrible, and it works, but it's not as comfortable and ergonomic as the GameCube controller. It's easy to recommend as a cheap spare if your Classic Controller breaks someday, but it wouldn't be my main go-to controller unless I had no other options. Unlike a lot of no-name third party controllers I'd say it's better than most of them, but still a long shot from the GameCube design it is trying to represent.
