Does NOT work with the HRAP – Playstation 2 PS2 to Wii/NGC GameCube Controller Adapter Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
-allows you to use your PS2 Pad on the Wii or Gamecube -well yeah that's pretty much it
Cons:
-does NOT work with two Arcade Sticks i tested, the Hori Real Arcade Pro 2 and some cheap other one -from reading the forums it seems to be incompatible with dance mats as well
Other:
This thing is useful when you want to use your PS2 pad on your Gamecube or Wii - but why would you want to do that? The D-Pad of the PS2 is terrible, and the analog sticks are in a strange position and don't have the right resistance. The only reason to use this (at least in my opinion) is to be able to use the awesome PS2 peripherals like the arcade stick, dance mat or beatmania / pop n music controller (although i wouldn't know what game i'd want to play with that) - an this adapter does not deliver.
Bottomline:
get it if you want to play with your plain PS2 pad, but don't if you plan to use special periphery.
