    Let me preface this review by saying that I’m probably not the target market for this controller. I’m a Nintendo guy to my core, but the N64 is my least-favorite Nintendo system and it’s not even close. However, that’s like pointing out your least-favorite kid – obviously you still love it a ton, even if you wish it could have have turned out better. Since N64 emulation isn’t in nearly as good of a place as its two older brothers, the original hardware is still the best way to experience N64 glory. Unlike other consoles, however, finding a decent controller is a HUGE pain in the ass. OEM controllers are notorious for loose or broken analog sticks, and third-party controllers notoriously suck. The fact that the N64 pad’s layout is tightly tied to the design and function of its games in a way that makes it hard to replicate the experience with a different controller compounds that pain. So what’s a desperate retro gamer to do? Enter Retro Fighters and their Brawler64, a smart, thoughtful, and modern take on the original N64 pad. The short version is that it’s excellent, and I’m probably buying at least one more of them, but it requires reprogramming some muscle memory to fully enjoy.

    I recently bought a RetroTINK 2X and have been enjoying all of my old consoles in glorious HD, and that’s what prompted my purchase of an Ice Blue Brawler64.

    The first thing that strikes you about the Brawler64 is how danged LIGHT it is. It’s clearly modeled on the Switch Pro Controller, and I was expecting a similar heft, but since there are no accelerometers or rumble motors in there, the lightness makes sense. I also went and held an OEM controller just before I started writing this, and it’s honestly pretty close to its weight (also, holy hell, that thing’s barely heavier than an SNES controller). I also love the packaging, which is inspired by Nintendo’s N64 branding. The buttons are clicky, responsive, and feel great. It works fantastic and lag-free on my actual N64 in all situations. The build quality seems high and likely to stand up to many hours of abuse. I bet you could twirl that analog stick like a madman in Mario Party and not break it. I know that some of the early backers reported issues with the first production run, but I didn’t see anything like that in mine.

    The one complaint I have, and it’s really more of complaint about ME than the controller, is that the layout’s not EXACTLY the same as the OEM pad, and my brain’s still getting used to it. The L and R buttons function normally, but both of the triggers function as a press of the Z button, so one of them is kind of superfluous. I’ve never hit it by accident, but it’s possible. Also, I miss the little raised arrows on the C-buttons, and they’re a little bigger than the original, but neither thing has stopped me from nailing headshots in Turok or combos in KI Gold.

    Bottom line: the Brawler64 is the first third-party N64 controller which not only DOESN’T suck, but which might actually be superior to the original. Buy with confidence.
