    Might get into a problem using it with GBI

    Posted by Rolando G on May 7th 2023

    At least in my experience, using GBI with this controller and my FireRed copy, seems to be detecting the hold of any direction in the dpad as a singular input, causing it to tap multiple times instead of a long tap, so my character ends up running a step, then pausing, then running another step then pausing and so on and so for.

    Dpad is said to be bad

    Posted by Jon on Mar 23rd 2023

    I heard all over that the d-pad is terrible on this and to use a regular snes dpad.

    I thought ``nah, I like the white dpad, I`m going to see is I can fix it.`` I think I ruined the controller by trying to modify it...

    Try the snes d-pad switch or keep it as is, don`t be like me.

    Works Great & Perfect Price

    Posted by Jer on May 2nd 2022

    I've wanted the Hori controller for a long time but never wanted to pay the high prices. Really glad this controller came out and it works really well.
    I've tried out some GBA games like the Mega Man Zero titles and had no issues. It's also great for 2D games on the Gamecube like Mega Man Network Transmission.
    I've never used the Hori controller so I'm not sure how this one directly compares; but it's a great alternative considering the price differences. Definitely recommend.

    Game Cube controller

    The GameCube controller is amazing for the price, and it completes my GameCube collection. Now buttons feel great,but the road is little soft. But still amazing

    A Decent Alternative to the Hori Controller

    Posted by Tayler on Jan 8th 2022

    This controller is good alternative to the much more expensive hori controller. The face buttons as well as the shoulder buttons have a nice clicky and responsive feel to them. The d pad is not the best. Although it is better than the one on the GameCube standard controller. If you are looking to play Gameboy titles or some 2D games on the Cube, this is the best bang for your buck controller you can get that is affordable.

    Great Alternative for the Game Boy Player!

    Posted by George Gracin III on Jan 6th 2022

    I have been searching for the Hori wired Gamecube pad for my wife for years and when I found out about Old Skool's version, I had to give it a shot. So far, I'm very happy with it. It feels super comfortable in my large hands and works leagues better on the d-pad side than trying to use a GameCube controller for Game Boy games with my Game Boy Player. Only downside I can think of is that the D-pad is a little stiff out of the box. It took a good amount of play to break it in but once it is, it works like a champ. Worth checking out!

    Great clone of the original Hori controller.

    Posted by Ken Prezkop on Nov 14th 2021

    Quality controller for playing games on the GameBoy Player on the GameCube. Also, to the person unable to understand the point of this controller in another review: The point of the more buttons than you need for the GameBoy Player is to remain compatible with any possible required inputs on the system itself. So you don't ever run into having to unplug it for a regular GameCube controller at anypoint. But you can also use this for fighting games too. If you don't like using a stick for them.

    Pretty good

    Posted by Evan Arnett on Nov 6th 2021

    Works well, much more comfortable for playing GBA than the standard Gamecube controller. The d-pad is a little clicky compared to an SNES controller, and the X and Y buttons have just a tiny bit of wobble/looseness compared to OEM Gamecube. But you probably won’t be using those buttons much anyway. I don’t have the original HORI version to compare. I wish they would make a wireless version, but it’s a pretty niche product so I don’t expect it.
