Yeah, agreed. Games such as Mario and Duck Tales, don't really play well with the Advantage, for me either. It is however, fantastic for games like Contra, Metroid, Ninja Gaiden etc. Oh, and I can only play Donkey Kong with the Advantage, but that might just be due to playing it on the Atari 2600, as a child, and being used to stick control for the game... But, yeah, in my opinion, best controller of all time.i played the hell outta Contra with the NES advantage.
