The Classic Controller is the highlight of the Wii’s retro gaming experience as it dramatically increases the old school feel of games. Add to that the Wii’s classic games compilations, the Wii’s ability to play the Gamecube library and the Wii Virtual Console and you’ll find the Wii is a major player in retro goodness. But there are disappointments as well. Some games that would benefit from the Classic Controller are incompatible. And, sadly but understandably, Nintendo no longer allows downloading from its massive Wii Virtual Console library.
Classic Controller compatible Wii games I own:
Baroque, Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon, Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition, The Last Story, Mario Kart Wii, Namco Museum Remix, SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1, Tournament of Legends
Wii games I own that I wish were compatible:
Alien Syndrome, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, MadWorld, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, Sin & Punishment: Star Successor
