The biggest improvement is in the D-Pad. The D-Pad of the dual action is terrible, which makes it unusable for many types of games. For example, it is impossible to reliably use even simple fighting game moves such as SubZero's freeze or Ken/Ryu's fireball. The Rumblepad's D-pad, however, is much improved, plus it has a useful button that swaps the D-Pad and the left analog stick in case your game doesn't recognize the D-Pad (some don't). The D-Pad feels a little strange, and it doesn't quite reach the quality of the D-Pads on Nintendo or Sony products, but it does the job.
I have this pad, a Logitech Dual Action, and a Saitek P880, and I recommend this pad as the best of the three (unless you need six thumb buttons or a shift button, in which case Saitek is still a good choice, with or without vibration).
That being said, there is a minor calibration issue with the controller. The only reason I gave four stars instead of five is that Logitech denies the flaw. I've read through a dozen forums with postings from other people who have had the same issue; however, the issue is VERY EASILY remedied, albeit by an unconventional method. The tiniest spritz of WD-40 (or other suitable lubricant) on the left or right analog ball will ensure flawless play. I remedied my controller over two weeks ago, and it still works great.
All in all, this is a fantastic controller - very accurate and smooth, familiar layout, and awesome rumble feature. For anyone who's stayed away from action platformers on PC because of control issues - hate playing on a keyboard, other gamepads' inaccurate and often touchy controls - this gamepad is your dream solution. You can enjoy the cleaner graphics of your PC title and not lose any control or playability.
The force feedback does not work with Need for Speed Most Wanted. I have searched the internet for an answer, but have yet to find one, so hopefully someone here can help me. I have read that newer EA games don't work with this controller's force feedback. I also have a Saitek P2500 controller and the force feedback does work with Need for Speed Most Wanted.
Consider how many EA games you have in your collection before you purchase this controller.
I'll stick with my Saitek, with I actually like better.

I can't get it to work correctly with all my games but that has always been the case for every joypad or joystick I ever owned.

It's a novel idea. It just doesn't work on my games. Which is something that doesn't surprise me. Product support was a bit weak, too. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Richard C. Rawlings
