How many degrees of sensitivity does the N64 controller analog stick have?

I've bought a cheap USB-based Nintendo 64 controller and it only appears to support the eight main directions (N, E, S, W and diagonals).

Should I be able to push the analog stick a small amount (for example, to make a character walk instead of run), or was this mainly in newer console analog sticks?
