Yes it supports the classic controller, I used it myself. Be warned though, the game is terrible. Of course I never played the Xbox or PC Version. But as a Wii game in 2012, even with all the garbage on the wii. This is still a terrible game. The graphics have virtually no texture, very washed out and dull, the gameplay is repetitive and boring, the framerate chugs despite being such a simple looking game, the camera angle stinks, combat/collision detection is weak. Everything about it including the menus and videos look like 2003 if not earlier. Maybe in 2003 this was considered decent but now its just another disgrace on the Wii. I did like the music though. One good thing.
