Here's a super-short review because I'm far too busy playing a couple new games I got to write 3-5 paragraphs on a new version of a very old peripheral. So I'm just going to cop-out yet again, make a list and hope you get too detracted by Superman to notice how short this post is. Sorry. I'll try to write something worthwhile soon.
*Turbo available for each button. Just flick the switch for the corresponding button at the top of the stick.
*Works for most 'Classic Controller' compatible games.
*It's a solid, well made arcade stick.
*Excellent rubber grips on the bottom of the case. It will stay in place even on overly-polished tables.
*The stick connects to the WiiMote thus avoiding awkward cord tangles.
*Arcade stick + Neo Geo fighting games = awesome. It's simple math.
*Vastly superior to 'The Shaft'
in almost every way you can possibly imagine and for only 10 dollars more.
*Seriously, 'The Shaft'
*You cannot navigate the main Wii menu cursor with the stick since it only registers analog control. Hopefully this will be remedied in a future firmware update.
*The 50 dollar price tag may be a bit steep for a system that has very few fighting games (let's hope that Garou: Mark of the Wolves
comes to Virtual Console...)
*It's yet another peripheral that will drain your WiiMote's batteries.
*The turbo button gimmick is stale and unnecessary.
