Pros: more comfortable to use for platform games, perfect for retro games

I have very fond memories of playing with the original Nintendo as a child, and as much as I love the way technology has given us consoles such as the Nintendo Wii, I do sometimes crave for the simpler days when games were made in 2D worlds and they only needed a few simple controls.


The Nintendo Wii does a great job of making retro games available to its users, you can download many original Nintendo games from the online store, which is great if you want a nostalgic trip down memory lane. The only problem I found with some of these was the way the Wii remote felt when playing them. In order to play these retro games you have to turn the remote on its side, and use it like a traditional controller, but I find this really uncomfortable. This classic controller is the perfect addition to your Wii collection if you like retro games, it feels much more comfortable in your hands, and is has been designed with the old style controller of the original systems in mind.


It is comfortable to use as it fits within your hand easily, but it’s chunky enough to get a good grip of when you’re playing.
