5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent & Affordable Stick November 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was worried this fighting stick was going to be of low quality because of the price. I was wrong. This is a control that offers an amazing gaming experience for a real fair cost. Honestly after buying this I truly believe all other arcade controllers are way over-priced.

This stick has the perfect size, the perfect layout, the perfect amount of buttons. It works excellent with the PS3 and the laptop, as well with the PS2. I played it for various hours at a time without it giving me any kind of problems.

The stick itself is well made, and completely responsive, it plays just as well as the analog on the PS3. I tested it with all these games and it works wonderful:

PS3

Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition
The King Of Fighters XII
The King Of Fighters XIII
Mortal Kombat 9
Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection Online
1942 Joint Strike
Street Fighter III 3rd Strike Online Edition
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
Mortak Kombat Arcade Kollection
Tekken 6
Mortal Kombat Vs.

2.0 out of 5 stars So far not so good...{UPDATE 1/8/2013} November 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Well i bought the Arcade stick thanks to a review by Carlos Gustavo and man i was dissappointed. Everything works except moving right and even when i do the select + start thing i still have problems. It is driving me crazy. If anyone can help please because so far i am disappointed

UPDATE: Well i finally got it to work thanks to someone from youtube. All we did was open it up and moved a wire and it worked. I am dissappointed that this item came in not working and us actually having to open it and fix it. The Arcade stick is fine and the buttons well..i don't like how they feel and after a long while it hurts my hand..this was not worth the buy..

3.0 out of 5 stars A 3 out of the box, a 5 if bought for modding. July 22, 2012

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The stick itself is very solid and weighty, which is nice. The buttons and stick feel cheap. I've been using this stick for a good 5 hours and I've noticed that the stick has randomly become less responsive.

For example, in a game menu, it wouldn't scroll up for me for a little while, or I've had trouble jumping left (upper right corner). I didn't notice this problem when I first started using it. The buttons also seem to sometimes give multiple inputs. For instance, when in training mode with the Inputs showing, if I try to hit three buttons simultaneously, I will at times see Light and Medium Punch input followed immediately by Light, Medium and Heavy Punch inputed, after having only hit the three buttons once.

For a $27 I can't complain, as I've heard people complain about garbage controls on sticks four times as expensive, and if I was rating this with my original intent in mind, which was to buy it to replace the stick and buttons with higher quality controls, I'd give it 5 stars, as the case is nice and solid with all the button options I'll need for either Playstation or PC, as well as quick disconnects running to the stick and a harness on the PCB running to the buttons, so I don't have to solder on the PCB, I just need to cut the wires on the harness and spice them to quick disconnects going to the buttons I'll put in (internally).

Having never used a fighting stick with the stick itself closer to the buttons, I can't say if I would prefer it that way, but the configuration is comfortable.

Unfortunately, I have to rate this as is, a cheap fighting stick that also has cheap controls that may not last very long. But, if I was rating this as a cheap stick to buy just to mod it, I'd give it a 5. (I don't remember if the product description stated, but the stick is a square gate)

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Expectations December 1, 2012
By Bentley
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
With all the reviews online stating how quickly arcade sticks begin to fail, I was worried. But this stick has taken some abuse; falling down, resting food and drinks on it, a few temper tantrums, etc. But still works perfectly and has a very nice weight to it. If I had have any gripes A) Get and extension cord and B) The lights constantly blink when attached to the PS3.
It makes a huge difference in fighting games in my opinion and it just gives you that feel you get from the Arcade that a controller simply can't replace. I plan on getting a second one as well.
