The Nintendo Gamecube was one of the greatest consoles of all time in my opinion. It had so many great games and was really enjoyable to play - especially the multiplayer games! After a while, I decided to buy the Wavebird wireless controller. I thought it sounded really odd at first due to the name 'Wavebird' but back in that day, the idea of gaming wirelessly with an official Nintendo controller was quite exciting! Nowadays the controller isn't manufactured anymore due to the new Nintendo Wii but you can still buy one for around £20 used on places like eBay. The controller can actually be used with the new Nintendo Wii too if you don't like the Wii remote ... Read the complete review

Innovation has always been a strong point for Nintendo with them being first to market with full analogue control, shoulder buttons and a rumble feature. With the Wavebird controller, we have the first wireless controller to perform as well as its wired counterpart. What's even more impressive is how Nintendo beat the competition to it by an entire generation of consoles before it became standard with the Wii, XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3 over the last few years. The Wavebird controller was made to be used with Nintendo's GameCube console which launched back in 2002 but has gained longevity through Nintendo's desire to make their Nintendo Wii console backwards ...

The Nintendo Wavebird is a controller for your Nintendo Gamecube. The Wavebird controller comes in a silvery grey colour and is very similar in design to the original Gamecube controller. At a glance you may actually think it is the same until you take a closer look and realise that it is a lot fatter this time around! The gain comes at the bottom of the controller where on a normal controller the two parts with the C stick and directional pad are separate here they are joined together. You get a lot more in the box with this controller, the Wavebird which comes with a good set of AA batteries (I think they were Panasonics) and a receiver unit for ... Read the complete review

This was one of the first wireless controllers to ever be released. I was so excited by the thought of no wires, I picked one up immediately but at a hefty price. Nowadays, they are still quite expensive and you can buy them for around £40. However, they are great technology and work really well. Considering we have a new generation of consoles now, this controller may seem a bit old in technology, but at the time of release, it was excellent. It has a similar look to the original Gamecube controller. On the bottom is a wheel that is used to change the frequency of the channel. By doing this, and changing the channel on the receiver, you can play wirelessly. ... Read the complete review

When I bought this controller for my Gamecube, I already had the Logitech version, and while almost identical, I did feel that this one took a little bit of getting used to. Once I had got used to it, however, I loved this controller. It was easy to use, with buttons everywhere that your fingers and thumbs could be (I particularly like the buttons at the top at the back). The only thing is, that in most games, most of the buttons are redundant, so whil it looks cool, you dont get to use all of the buttons! The buttons lines up together are not so easy to use- they are a bit close together. The direction pad is good, and easy ... Read the complete review
