Use a PS2 controller as a Wii Classic Controller – Playstation 2 PS2 to Wii Controller Adapter (13.5CM-Cable) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
The adapter is detected right away, works as advertised. No problems with 3rd party controllers (Hori and Sega)
Cons:
Button mapping is unusual - you will want to change the mapping in most games. R1/R2 are not mappable (The PS controller has more buttons than the original Wii classic controller, and there are no hardware switches on the adapter to choose which buttons are used)
Other:
I bought this game to use in Tatsunoko vs Capcom. The item works well if you don't mind remapping the buttons in the game. The default mapping of a Playstation controller in TvC is as follows: square = x triangle = L x = a O = r L1 = y L2 = b R1 = n/a R2 = n/a Select = - Start = + The game was designed for the Classic Controller and not the Classic Controller Pro controller. I can not confirm if the R1/R2 buttons are usable in games that support the Classic Pro controller.
Bottomline:
Play with the Button Configuration in your game and this adapter does a fine job of allowing a Playstation controller to be used instead of a classic controller.
