Tablet Wireless Game Controller V2
Cant use with many games
Rite now im not sure if its my controller or the games but i have DL a game called A Bards Tale and Soulcraft THD that both say they are bluetooth controller compatable. This controller does not seem to work with either of these games though and I am very dissapointed. Even when i check the controller settings in the game it doesnt work. The only games i have been able to use this controller just fine with are emelated games. I was really looking forward to playing HD Tegra 3 games with this controller though. I am really wondering if it is the controller or the games but either way im dissapointed. I really wanted to play FF Dimensions with the controller too but that doesnt work either. sorry for the bad spelling.
I ended up buying this because I wanted to able to take my tablet with me and play games on the go without having a wire hanging down all the time. I looked for a while and glad I waited and found this one. It works great with my Acer Iconia A500. I played a few games that supported a controller and had no problems with it. I also used it with a few emulators and worked just fine. It has a good feel to it. The buttons are very solid. I also paired it up with my PC which has blue tooth and tried a few games and it also worked great. It doesn't say for PC but I had no problem using it. The price is great for what you get. Most good controllers are $40+ and still at that price aren't great. Its lightweight with a built in battery so no need to worry about changing them. So far I am happy and glad I purchased it.
Did my online research,google videoes ect.... and went with the NYCO pro pad 1st because of Tegra Developement input.. what a mistake. Looses sync. wont resync,, mapping is bad.....it would hook up to phone(gal note) good but not the tablet (asus 300). i looked at the Red Samurai the first time i was in and did like the design of it. Had better reviews than nyco (which i usually take into my decision also) but didnt do phones. Red S. Synced right up to tablet and has played mutiple games. Build is good and comfortable. You must sync both controller options. If you want a good controller dont bother lookin around ....GET THIS ONE.
Nice Bluetooth Controller for the Price
I really like this controller. Pairing the controller was simple and practically effortless. I mainly purchased it to play GTA Vice City. The controller can function in two different modes, keyboard and gamepad (a small switch is on the underneath side). In keyboard mode, it worked right out of the box and did just about all the functions in Vice City that you could want. In gamepad mode, I could not get any of the buttons to do anything. Outside of the game in keyboard mode, pressing any direction or button types a character and the built-in soft keyboard would not display. The only way to get the soft-keyboard to appear is to turn the controller off. Outside of the game in gamepad mode, the soft keyboard functioned normally. There did not seem a way to remap any of the controls in keyboard or gamepad mode. That being said, I think that the inability to remap controls just a software limitation. Hopefully future games will better recognize the gamepad as a gamepad and allow controls to be remapped in either mode. In keyboard mode, the analog sticks were very binary and made the walking/aiming controls jerky and difficult to use (for precise aiming, I use the touchscreen). Driving/flying did not seem to suffer as severely.
Red Samurai V2 Controller Review
I recently purchased the Tablet Wireless Game Controller V2 or otherwise known as the Red Samurai V2 Bluetooth controller. So far this controller is much better then the Nyko PlayPad Pro I was using. The controller itself does not feel cheap, even at the $24.99 price point offered at my local Gamestop. The directional pad and analog sticks are responsive and the placement of the buttons and general feel of the controller is very nice. The Bluetooth synced with no issues to my Nexus 7 (16GB WiFi) and would automatically connect once paired. The only two CONs I was able to note for this device so far are: 1)The lights on the front that show that Bluetooth is paired and the device is on/holding a charge. The light is extremely bright and can be distracting until you are used to it when used in a dark room. 2) When you swap to another application that utilizes your keyboard, you are only able to see suggested words, not the full keypad. (Using Swiftkey 3- Non-Tablet). 3) MINI usb charging point, should be MICRO in my opinion. Overall, I would recommend.
I love to play games on my TABLET but there haven't been any good controllers until now. This controller works great!!!. It has two connections modes that it can operate in.
I bought it for my android Tablet but I also use it with my IPAD system too, when it's set to keyboard mode. I also learned this controller is upgradable by user's. I've been told the next upgrade will have key mapping functions.
A big step in the right direction, but falls short
I have been looking for controller solutions for my Asus Transformer Prime for some time now. I decided to give this controller a try after having returned the previous version. This controller improves upon its predecessor in nearly every way. The joysticks seem more responsive and benefit from the concave design. It is more comfortable to hold and nicer to look at. Although it is still pretty light, it doesn't feel as cheap. Even how the controller powers on and off is better this time around. Not to mention V2 is $5 cheaper than V1! So, if your tablet does not have a USB port, Bluetooth enabled controllers are your only option, and Gamestop's V2 is a GREAT value... for GAMES WITH A BUTTON MAPPING OPTION. Playing Shadowgun with the V2 controller is great. Connect the tablet to your HDTV, sit back on the couch, and have a gaming experience that rivals home consoles. My major gripe with this controller, the one thing not fixed from the previous version, is the lack of COMPLETE compatibility with Rockstar’s games (GTA III Anniversary and Max Payne, specifically). The L2 and R2 buttons DO NOT FUNCTION! In GTAIII this prevents you from selecting weapons and shooting from the vehicle. Even better, in Max Payne you can’t shoot at all or use "bullet time." The fact that these games are advertised on the back of the box is misleading. I really wanted this to be my Android controller of choice, but it doesn’t work with the games I want it to (to be fair, Rockstar’s mobile games should have a button mapping option). Fortunately, I have a tablet dock that has a USB port and will be using my PS3 controller going forward. SIDENOTE: Although I did not factor this into my review, it may be worth noting that the controller I received had a non-responsive R1 button and the right stick was slightly cock-eyed in the neutral position.
