Playing Super Smash Bros with the Wii Classic Controller?

#1jayimmyPosted 7/2/2014 5:07:19 PM
This question is applying to Super Smash Bros and Super Smash Bros Brawl

I know you cant use the controller from the Wii U, But I do have a pair of the original classic controllers for the Wii, I don't wanna have have to hook my Wii back up just to use the GC controller but I'm just wondering if any of you guys have used the classic controller with those games and how was your experience?

I'm not gonna be going hard like I know some people do I play Smash casually.

Thanks guys!

Using a plus-face button like the classic controllers, to me, felt like trying to eat a sandwich using my elbows.

But that's only because I've been using a GC controller for 13 years.

I tried using every combination for Smash Bros but it just felt wrong for some reason.
For the classic controller my hands don't like the two analog sticks so close together and would have preferred if they switch placement with the D-pad. The shoulder buttons are fine but the Z buttons gets in the way slightly with my hands. The ABXY buttons to me feel too sticky for my liking as well. Maybe with more time invested I could have gotten used to the controller but when you can just use the GC controllers it felt like why bother. I could see me getting used to the Pro controller but I am happy we will be able to use GC controllers again.

I used the classic pretty much exclusively when I was playing Brawl, and it was good enough to get me every trophy (including that Tabuu one), so I'd say it works fine.

Classic feels great as long as you have the Pro. Also the buttons are fully customizable.

The Pro is better in every way.

Depends. There are shells available to give it Pro-like grips, but the Pro does have better shoulder buttons.

I have been using the Classic CC to get ready for Smash 3DS. I think I have a good layout, and besides, can anybody properly use the Z buttons anyways? I have been using 'B' for grab.
