Categories > Retro Video Game Accessories > Hyperkin > Cirka Cirka N64 Controller M05786-GD Gold

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Not for games that require accuracy
Pros: It seems to work pretty well. good look and good feel. It's perfectly fine for a lot of games.
Cons: The main point of this review is that the analog stick isn't great. This seems to be a consistent problem for n64 replacement controllers. The stick is stiff and the deadzone is too big. This makes subtle movements like precision aiming or walking instead of running difficult.
Other Thoughts: I would suggest considering if the games you want to play take advantage of the analog sensitivity. If they do an original controller may be worth the extra money. If not, this seems to work fine

Categories > Retro Video Game Accessories > Retro-Link > Retro-Link SNES -Controller to PC/MAC USB Adapter - Dual Port

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Buy it. You know you want it.
Pros: It's a SNES controller adapter for USB. This is automatically a pro.
Cons: Wire seemed a bit loose at first, but I think it's just the strain-relief mechanism doing its job. It's just a minor nitpick, and not enough to remove an egg from the rating.
Other Thoughts: Now I can use my Asciipad in Steam. YAY! (Now if only Steam properly supported system-defined joysticks...)

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Plug and play
Pros: Works with any emulator I've tried, a few times I had to configure the buttons in the emulator software, but it wasn't too difficult.
Cons: Product is much lighter than the original NES controller, which is immediately noticeable. Would work nicely with some lead weights, but never much of a problem.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Almost as good as the real thing
Pros: This controller is almost as good as using a real gamecube controller. It's obviously not quite there, but for $15 was a great deal
Cons: The z button and two paddles don't feel quite right. They aren't bad though.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Pretty authentic!
Pros: I don't currently have a Gamecube to make a direct comparison, but this has the weight, shape, dimensions, buttons, and control responses exactly as I remember. It feels sturdy and good to hold like a proper gamepad. The buttons feel durable. Overall it's very good quality, and the sale price I caught made it a great value.

I plugged it in to a USB port and it works in Windows 10. No driver disc or anything was needed or even included in the box (see cons also).

It wasn't listed anywhere on the packaging or online that I saw, but YES this does use DirectInput like an Xbox360 controller.

Works perfectly in ZSnes and Dolphin, just set your button mapping!
Cons: The lack of specific drivers/software means it won't "just work" for all games, and there are significant differences in how Windows recognizes the inputs compared to an Xbox360 gamepad.

Xbox 360 gamepad:
• RS controls the X & Y rotation, both centered at 50%
• LT & RT control the Z-axis, 50-100% and 50-0% respectively
• Buttons 1-6 map as A,B,X,Y,LB,RB

This Hyperkin gamepad:
• C-stick controls the Z-axis and Z-rotation, both centered at 50%
• LT & RT control X & Y rotation, both starting from 0%
• Buttons 1-4 map as X,A,B,Y, and the Z-button is #8

As long as your game/software allows you to customize these, there's no problem. But otherwise don't expect to use the Windows defaults as an Xbox controller substitute.
Other Thoughts: The cord is only like 6ft. That's not a major con because you can just use a USB extender, just be aware.

LT is a bit stiffer than RT, and neither feels amazing, but that may change with time and use so I'm not counting it as a con. I recall the official GC gamepads not having the best triggers either.

The D-pad here controls the Point of View Hat just like an Xbox gamepad, but the physical design and small size makes it feel more "cardinal" and harder to make circles.

In Windows 10 settings, search for "Game Controllers" to find the calibration and button & axis labels.

Label shorthand used above:
• LS & RS - Left and right analog joysticks
• LB & RB - Left and right shoulder "bumper" buttons
• LT & RT - Left and right shoulder triggers
• C-stick - Gamecube equivalent to RS
• Z-button - Gamecube's only shoulder bumper, on the right (it has no LB)
