    I was so excited to play Super Mario on my Wii VC, until I actually played it. Is there ANY way the controls can be changed? I am not buying a classic controller, and this is ridiculous.

    The GC controller is not recommended for this game! Serious blunder here Nintendo! It plays great with a VC controller.

    Maybe not so much of a blunder. They made you want a classical controller didn't they? IMO it's a great way to boost sales. It may not be the most convenient for us, but hey, we live in a market driven economy.

    I understand, but I bought 2 wavebirds today, and I'm not going to buy a classic controller. How could they be so stupid?

    Ouch. Those are still pretty pricy aren't they? This Mario wasn't a REALLY long one, maybe the wavebirds will be enough until you can pick up a 3rd party classic controller.

    True, but it's just the fact that I can't even really enjoy it. It was a waste of $8.

    I'm glad I know this now, I was planning to buy this one. Now I think I'll wait a while. Does Zelda work well with the GC controller?

    Haven't downloaded it. I would think most games would work fine, but Mario is just a complete and utter disaster.

    Zelda works great with the GC controller. Super Mario World is the first VC game that plays awful on a GC controller.

    I don't really understand how Nintendo are stupid because some of you refuse to buy the classic controller. They're not forcing you to buy it, they're saying it will maximise your gaming experience if you do so, by providing a better control system more suitable for retro games.

    Dang, wish I had known this before. I played it for 5 minutes and put it down. Guaranteed I will never play it again.

    I agree. Look at a GC controller, then look at the SNES controller. The reason a GC controller doesn't work is nice should be obvious.

    You would think they would make it work depending on what kind of controller is hooked up, no?

    You need a Classic Controller eventually anyway if your gonna want to play some of games later on. Stop being a cheap ass and go out and buy one. It's like what? 30 bucks? Come on.

    No, the buttons are mapped exactly as they were for the SNES. Virtual console games are only changed enough to make them play at all on the Wii, they don't spend anymore time than that. With a classic controller, the buttons are in the correct locations for how the SNES controller was laid out. LoZ LttP works just fine on the GC controller because the actions don't ever require you to hit two buttons (run+jump in SMW for example)

    Now I get it....Well when you put it like that I might not even get Super Mario World.

    You're right, it's not worth it. And to all of you saying "you should have bought a Classic Controller", they shouldn't have listed the GC controllers as compatible. It's literally impossible to play with and that is THEIR fault for listing it, not mine.

    This is probably a warning that games like DKC, Mortal Kombat, KI may play better with a VC controller. I can't imagine KI 64 playing too well with a GC controller. VC controllers are only $20. They had a special deal earlier where you buy points and get a controller free. Not sure if that deal is still out there?

    I agree this is unacceptable. So now if I want to play all types of games with 4 friends I could possibly need.

    4 wii controllers
    4 nunchucks
    4 GC controllers
    4 VC controllers
