Xbox 360 Afterglow Controller
Not for every game
This is my favorite controller of all time, for tiger woods pga tour that is.. I have bought a new one every year for every tiger woods pga tour game since 2011... It is a must for golf fans who want to play online.. It never shanks, always hits dead straight and once broken in you can get lots of power on your swing... Only problems are I have to buy a new one every year, I treat them with care but they have all died, wont turn on... Not great with plug in headsets unless u are using a turtle beach, the Microsoft headset gets and gives lots of echo... Not great for fps, I use my regular ms controller for skyrim because the afterglow is a bit off on the radius... A little lag, a little tight, a little overturn, all in the same motion... So in summery, if you play tiger woods pga tour this controller will make you a great golfer but I wouldn't use it for any other game....
One of the worst controllers i have bought yet.
This is one of the worst controllers i have bought to this date, the reason i say this is because of the controllers joystick sensitivity. It has an incredibly sensitive joystick which means that this controller is over all harder to play shooter games where good accuracy is needed. Also the way the controller is shaped makes it feel like its a foreign controller when just holding the controller. When I speak of it shape I mean that the bottom of it has become a little bit more extrude and fat. But overall to me the only good thing about this controller was its led installments which is what makes the afterglow brand so popular.
I bought this controller because I heard any wired Xbox 360 controller would be compatible with a computer. It wasn't (however I also didn't look much into it like downloading compatibility software or stuff like that). When I play the controller on the Xbox however I love it. The cord length is AMAZING. My couches are far away from the TV and yet I can lay back and play it. It's a great alternative to wireless controllers where I am constantly running around for batteries. Buttons don't stick, joysticks don't squeak, the light is so awesome in the dark, and also you can turn them off if you find them distracting at points (I haven't wanted to turn them off yet though). I highly recommend buying this controller.
Very cool. Game on.
I got the after glow controller today and it's great! Works just as well or better than any other controller out there! The LEDs are very vibrant and cool. Also, when you don't have your after glow on, it is very cool to see all the components like the rumblers work. Very cool. Game on in your favorite color.
I HAD TO STOP MY GAME WHEN MY MOM PASSES BY AND I ALWAYS DIE ALSO IT BREAKS EASLLY. DONT BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This controller is awesome, i first bought a regular gamestop plug in controller but it broke within a week. so i bought this controller and 2 yrs later its great. its worth it! plus it lights up and looks amazing get it!
Great for the price
I only bought this controller because my child decided to play lets hide mommy's xbox controller and have it disappear forever. I bought it because it was cheaper than paying the extra twenty dollars on an controller especially with limited budgeting. It works very well it doesn't move on its own when using the analog sticks, you can shut off the afterglow light if your eyes are that sensitive, I haven't had a problem with it yet I think its great for the price for anyone who is looking for a cheaper controller, I like that you can see through it. I've had this controller for about a week and as for the other reviews that I have read how the controller may not be compatible with the headset (not sure about it since I don't have one either). Its light not too heavy but just right. It worked very well when playing movies or playing The Darkness II. I don't think the controller vibrates when playing a very action filled game like a first person shooter game. Over all I have no problems with it I think it works very well.
Poor Quality Controller
I bought this controller less than a month ago and it has already stopped working. I always use my mic when playing and now the controller will not recognize any mics. It seems like you are saving money, but you will just need to buy a new one when it shorts out. I got the blue color and it is super bright! It is a good thing that it has an off function, otherwise I would have returned it immediately. I like that it lights up, dont get me wrong, but it is just too bright. My biggest issue overall is quality and longevity. I have always kept this controller up and safe, but it just stopped recognizing my mic mid game.
A great controller with a trivial flaw
I think that the Afterglow game controller series is the best on the market, and especially a wise purchase in both an economic manner and scores huge style points with every man and woman who's used it in my experience.
The spectrum of colors is great and there's a color for everyone - well, almost. I wish PDP had wised up earlier and made it every color of the rainbow. But I got my two colors out of all of them - and it looks awesome for the arcade-style setup that my game room is.
So maybe you've wondered about a flaw. There is one, but it shouldn't affect your game very much. The shoulder buttons could've been placed a little lower so that the finger could easily shift from the trigger. Otherwise, this is your best shot at either a PC controller or an XBOX 360 controller for your money. I don't think that even a $150 controller could ever replace this in its coolness.
My son bought this with his Christmas money!!! It worked for 3 days, then just quit lighting up and now doesnt work at all!! All boxes were thrown away and receipt was thrown away....sad to say....he lost his money on this!
