I've played fighting games since Street Fighter I, Own a TE Edition FighStick, have used and build several sticks by myself.
First, if you are lucky enough to buy this while Amazon has it on sale ( just $109.9 ) congratulations!! You are getting a great control with full sanwa parts, good art and an innovative design for a bargain. Believe me, I did some research and if you buy all the pieces separately you will spend more than $140.
I did test this with (of course) Soul Calibur V, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 and King of Fighters XIII, and it works perfect. Of course this is because it has Sanwa parts, so if something goes wrong in the game the fault is from the player's execution, not the controls.
As an extra, for those who like to mod their controls, this es easy modable, but watchout, you know you will void your warranty if you do ( only if you take off the bottom panel where the warranty label is, the toppanel can be modified without issues).
Stick performance: Excellent!
Button performance: Excellent!
Cable lenght: Good...
As far as the stick it self goes it's of solid construction looks great and cleans/stores easy the buttons are a little loud at first but as long as your not smashing them after awhile you can play with no sound at all.there's nothing that I would change about this stick all an all 10 out 10 well worth the price.
Also, the quality of this joystick is quite high. I was hesitant getting a joystick that cost as much as this one does but I can honestly say that it was worth it. The movements are precise and it has a solid feel. I don't use it for Soulcalibur at all. In fact, I almost exclusively use it for shmups such as DoDonPachi and it works like a dream in those.
The only downside I've found is that for some strange reason it doesn't seem to work in one or two apps on the Xbox. I don't know why and maybe it was a fluke but the D-Pad didn't move in Devil May Cry 4 (demo) and the IGN app. Since it works in everything else I've tried I'm guessing it's a flaw in those games/apps and I'm not taking any points off because it's so great in everything else.
One final note -- I know this is a no-brainer but if people buy this expecting it to work in places where you would use the joystick that is on the right side of the normal Xbox controller then they aren't thinking this through. It's only 1 joystick... Just remember that.
It's a plug in usb so no wireless.
The product is high quality.
It looks awesome because of the art work.
Change the joystick square gate to circle gate and its more awesome.
I really, really liked the feel of this stick. I know that parts are a huge deal and these all seem to be of the highest quality, as most information would seem to corroborate. The stick is firm and responsive, and the buttons aren't mushy or too firm, they are just right. I tested the same out with one 3D fighter (SC4) and a few 2D fighters, included the SF HD Remix on XBLA. While the AI continually beat me senseless, it was clearly my ineptitude at the stick always did exactly what I asked of it.
I didn't really use any of the turbo features (do serious users actually use these?) so I can't comment there. The build quality is excellent and I liked the compartment for the cord. The product listing here doesn't do enough to make clear that it ISN'T wireless, but I guess anyone willing to spend $150 on an arcade stick expects zero lag and knows it is wired.
I'm not a huge fan of the art on the stick, but it could be worse. 5 Stars.
