Additional Information/Review On PowerA  Wireless GameCube Controller

1.     Faithful Creation of this Wireless GameCube Controller

This PowerA wireless GameCube controller has almost the same layout as GameCube Controller Layout. It is not good to consider it as a third-party product made for profit because it comes with nearly half the price of the Nintendo Controller.

PowerA’s Controller has a distinctive A-focused primary cluster, Stiff C-stick, and cushy L and R buttons are present and are accounted for. Its shape is similar to the GameCube controller and gives the same feeling as the Original GameCube Controller.

Moreover, It has been modified for better performance. The changes that have been made for betterment are, Additional Buttons were added like Switch’s +, -, Home, and Capture buttons. It was made so to make the better version of the GameCube controller switch to navigate the gaming console’s main menu.

Not limited to these, Few creatures were also present and the D-Pad Size was also increased by few millimeters. Also, Z-Button on the right side has been shifted to the left which gives the switch GameCube controller the now-standard four shoulder buttons in total.

In addition, Thumbstick and C-stick can be pressed inward just like other brand’s controller thumbsticks. The final Pairing button was placed on the top to let you connect Bluetooth.

As Everything has some demerits, This Controller replica has it too. The most important thing that it does not have like the Original Controller is the Absence of a Vibration motor in it. i.e., No vibration can be felt while playing a game that doesn’t give the same feelings that we used to get while playing with Original One.

In Addition to what we do not like in it, we can’t forget is batteries aren’t rechargeable. We must swap batteries every time like old WaveBird.

2. Best for Emulation

I haven’t yet tried Smash Bros. Ultimate Yet which is almost the main reason for most people to buy this Controller. To Give a proper trial for this review, I tried connecting this PowerA Wireless GameCube Controller to my PC and used it in the GameCube emulator, Dolphin. Apart from missing Vibration, It is a perfect replication of the classic Smash feel.

It is highly recommended to use this Controller if you’re specifically searching for the controller to emulate GameCube or Wii games on PC or other similar platforms. Also, it is easy-to-use and plays older games on Steam.
