Awesome, Weird, Comfortable!
This chameleon PS2 controller rules! Anyone who has a broken PlayStation 2 controller, buy this one. The L2 and R2 are in different places than on normal PlayStation 2 controllers, but is allows you to press it easier. There is a rubberized side grip which lets you hold it better. The responsiveness on the controller is awesome! No lag! It is fun and easy to use. Extremely well designed. The dual analog sticks work really great! But my only gripes about the controller is that L3 and R3 buttons are a little hard to push down, ant it picks up a lot of dog hair. But those aren't any big deal. They come in great colors too! Mine is Clear-ish blue! This is an awesome controller! In my opinion, it is much better than the stock one. :-D
Burn After Reading!!!
This is the best controller out there rigth now it just like the sony controller bit a little bit more smaller and complex. I really needed a controller one time and i wented to the store to get a used sony controller and i saw this one for the price so i went my guts and wented ahead and brougth this one and i've never been more happy with myself like if u want a good controller then you need to get this one!!!, also the only thing kinda of weird about this controller is the shape like it's way! diffiferent from the sony and it may be a good thing for some people. i think from now on i will perfere this controller over the regular sony controller beacuse it's way cheaper, more functional cause of the size,it's the same color, anallog sticks are smaller in a good way and because i like it. I thimk you should but it too if you really need a PS2 controller like me!!
i just got this controller yesterday, and it's awesome!!! it has smaller analog sticks, which are better for your hands and control. it has a good texture, and it isn't slippery at all. this controller has great vibration. it's just as good, if not than the dual shock 2 controller. it's a great deal also. we needed another controller, and this one fills in great.with two controllers, you can do so much more, like playing games on multiplayer, or against each other. it is very durable. we dropped it a couple of times, and it still works good as new. the functionality is superb because it has almost identical placement of the buttons as the dual shock 2, so you will get used to it very easily. there is no lag, or anything that slows it down. if you need an extra controller, you should definitely get this one.
Only as a last resort.
In all honesty I didn't buy this controller it was the default controller that came with the refurbished PS2 slim. So I will say I was very disappointed that when I plugged it in that the L1 button was constantly sticking. Assuming that it was just something that happened to my controller it still has a handful of issues that make it inferior to the Duel Shock 2 controller. One major one is the D-Pad it almost feels like a Sega genesis or Xbox 360 D-pad (Meaning its really REALLY bad.) another issue is that the analog sticks are not the wonderful ones from the Duel Shock but some really weird off brand ones they are not to bad but they are still sub par in comparison to the main PS2 controller. Overall the feel is just off in comparison to the Duel Shock 2 while that may sound nit picky if you are like me you may be playing for hours and you want the best controller so that you are comfortable and it doesn't fall apart. So only buy this one if you do not have the extra money to buy a Duel Shock 2 and even then you should consider saving up.
This controller is great! I like the shoulder buttons INFINITELY better than the official ps2 controller shoulder buttons, and the controller itself feels great in your hands, really makes racing games in particular a breeze, along with all other types of games! The only thing keeping this from a 10 is that the shoulder buttons are slightly unresponsive, as in, every 100 presses, 1 or 2 won't register. Other than that, Awesome!
Don't Buy Under Following Conditions
First off I don't hate this controller, while flawed they lasted long enough for me to say, "Hey at least they lasted this long". These Conditions I am super serious about: FOR OWN SAKE DON'T BUY UNDER FOLLOWING CONDITIONS:
1. PS2 is In Basement: The day I got my PS2 I bought 2 of these controllers and one day when I was watching a movie I moved really quick and smashed controller on ground sending pieces of it in every direction.
2. You're Clumsy: I am a clumsy person knocking things left and right and I dropped the other control and it cracked( but didn't break in any sort of way)
3. You get deeply involved in Video Games: I am guilty of this and got so involved in a boss fight that it cracked and broke handle of controller
4. You have a dog: Yesterday my sister's dog broke that controller sending it out of my hands and shattering it.
While I don't hate the controller, I can't in good consciousness recommend this to you. If on a tight budget and want a controller for like a yr or so( I had the cracked 1 for a yr and a half) Buy it. It functions well enough and I can't complain functionality wise.
I bought this controller about a month ago and it is great. It feels weird compared to the dualshock controller but has a unique design and works perfect. The buttons are almost the same as the dualshock controller but placed differently.Definately a great buy for $10
this controller is better than the sony one it lasts longer cuz i had a sony controller and it died in like 2 months and this one still works after like five months so i surley recomened it to anyone whos tryingg to save a few bucks
I love it!
I love everything about this controller, It fits perfectly in my hands, it has great performance. I would definitely recommend this to everyone I know.
Kind of uncomfortable ...
I'm not saying it doesn't work because , well it does . The thing fits in your hand a little uncomfortably though . It's not like the normal controller if that's what your expecting when you get this . But it's good . : )
