Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Smash When I first started using this controller, I was not used to it. However, over a month of use, it is the only controller that I can recommend. It feels natural to use this controller for Smash Ultimate and doesn't require the adapter to work as it uses USB which can be plugged into the Switch port directly, making it the more flexible option.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Less than a month after purchasing, the control stick is bugged. Keeps moving up even when I'm not tilting at all. No rumble either, which is pathetic for a controller in 2019. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. It's a joke you can't buy a good gamecube controller for Smash Bros. It's either the official pro controller which has non-pressure sensitive triggers or some third party rubbish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best controller now works without an adapter. The Gamecube controller is my personal favourite. This is a well constructed remake that includes an extra shoulder button on the left. It works on both the Nintendo Switch and Windows 10. It doesn't include the NFC for Amiibo or gyroscopes. Improved my Zelda game, two fold. I would recommend to anyone who likes the Gamecube style controller.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY!!! I bought this today ( in black) and it is the worst controller I have ever used. The controller has major input lag as well as false marketing. It says it was made officially by Nintendo but is made by Power A. On the box it says it was wireless. It has pictures of the this showing its not. Do not buy! It is terrible. Don't waste your money!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh Not an official Nintendo controller, but 3rd party. Buttons don't feel as good as official gamecube controller, and is blue, not gamecube purple. And unsolicited email requesting review.
