Better than the Wii U Pro Controller in my opinion and much more comfortable as it has the GC/Xbox controller layout (no silly right analogue stick above the buttons).

Do note though, it's recommended that if you're interested to check it in store to make sure it's the newer one which is backwards compatible with Wii Classic Games too (a switch on the back).

Get your facts right, the original was 'backwards compatible with Wii Classic games' as it worked as a classic controller, it's only the newer version that also works as a Wii U Pro controller.

I realise it's a matter of opinion, but having owned one it is nowhere near as good as an official Wii U Pro controller - it feels fairly cheap, buttons aren't great & connection is temperamental (ie disconnects & needs resyncing, sometimes the controller acts crazy & needs resyncing).

The only good thing is it combines a wireless classic controller & a Wii U Pro controller. If you like cheap plastic 3rd party accessories then fair enough but it's nothing like the official pad.

Also £12.50 seems quite expensive for a 2nd hand 3rd party controller.

Well, that's in your opinion and you're entitled to it. I much prefer Gioteck GC-2 to the WUPC and in fact, I have two of them either of which I'll never sell because they're great.

Ha ha, entitled to my own opinion! Thanks for that

Another thing I forgot to mention (in case it matters to anyone), the plastic is shiny but cheap feeling & scratches quite easily.

I actually sold mine a few months back so it would have been around 1 & half years old & had been used a bit but not that much. When I took it out of the box it had been sitting in (with various other controllers, including some Wii remotes plus an official Wii U Pro controller) it had a lot of scuffs on the plastic & looked quite battered. This hasn't happened to the official controller so be warned - a 2nd hand GC-2, especially coming from cex sight unseen, might not look that nice cosmetically.

Anyway, my point is that someone might get the wrong impression if they actually decided to buy one based on your description. The reviews on amazon are probably a better way to get a range of opinions.

Also, looking at the reviews on amazon I'd advise reading the review by Felipe M. for a more balanced view of the controller!

Shocker of a deal, sorry OP. Can pick up new themed PDP pads for less. If you want fancy go PRO. If you want themed and cheaper priced pads go Hori or PDP.
