Advantages: Stylish & modern look, lightweight, intuitive button layout, in-built rumble, ergonomic design
The Gamecube was a very foreward thinking creation by Nintendo and wth any new console you get a brand new design for the controller (normally) so what of the Gamecube controller? Does it offer up any improvements in the way we game?
The Gamecube controller is ergonomically designed to ensure that it fits perfectly in your hands (it does not matter if you are left or right handed) so that you can play games very easily and have no problems with pain or cramp no matter how long you are playing. For me the controller is one of the best designed controllers and really does offer up very comfortable gaming with lightweight thinking at the heart of it all.
The controller comes with an in-built rumble feature that enables you to have full feedback from your games and this is brilliant for many different games like car racing (feel the engine and the corners) or shooting games (feel the shots being fired or when you are hit) and many more besides. The rumble for me works very well and allows for you to have a great connection with your game thanks to the fact it is not just a rumble that is either on or off but instead has a variable intensity (this varied by the game itself) which allows for a varied feedback level and so a more immersive experience.
The controller comes with a huge amount of control thanks to the well designed layout. Two analog control sticks matched with A, B, X and Y buttons allow for great levels of control and thanks to the excellent layout you will find it easy to use. There are also left and right trigger buttons at the top of the controller which offer up a great amount of additional control. The D pad and start button on the front of the controller wrap up a very well designed and laid out controller which for me has been one of the best I have ever used thanks to its simplicity.
The controller is wired but for me this is not a big problem as adding a battery pack would just add weight to this so detract from all the excellent design work already put in.
Overall this is one of the best controllers I have ever used since I have been gaming thanks to its lightweight feel and ergonomic design which marry to the intuitive button layout. The controller takes a little bit of getting used to but once you are used to it then you find it very easy to use and that it does not drain you and leave you with pain like some other controllers can do if you play for a while. A modern and stylish looking controller that has a great in-built rumble feature make for a simple yet excellent piece of kit.
Summary: One of the best controllers ever and a great piece of kit
