What the hell is the point of it if we have Wii Remotes, GCN controllers and Classic Styles? This pad is limited to everything that is before the 3D age.

It was mostly made for fighters that showed up on the Wii, since most of them have the option of standard button configurations.

I think it's a great controller actually.

If you are serious into fighting games you know that the classic controller is not sufficient. Games like Guilty Gear and the SNK titles need a stick for proper control.
