Personally, I say yes. The controller itself is amazing, however the first time I picked it up (And second, and third) I decided to "explore" the wii-mote, all around. The A button seems like it may take some getting used to, and the D-pad is very easily accessable. The trigger button on the bottom lets you easily grasp the wii-mote without having to hold the trigger button down. The trigger is nice and "crisp" and feels smooth when you press it down. When I played, they made me wear the wrist-strap (Which I would have done anyways), but it definitly isn't required.
The design of the controller, just by eyeing it up looks rather... chunky, like it may be uncomfortable to hold, But to be honest, it fits more comfortably in your hands than it looks. It's very smoothe.
If anybody has any other questions, I can TRY to answer them the best I can, but remember, I only had about 15 minutes with it ;D
