4.0 out of 5 stars Its Close! December 8, 2012
By Jabes
Verified Purchase
I was a 90's Baby, and I have to say I really do miss the old time controllers used when playing video games. And with all the emulators on the internet to relive my childhood days, it just was not the same with a keyboard and Mouse. Until I found the Retrolink USB Controller! It is close to what the Sega Genesis (Second/Thrid) Style controllers where, it works for me.

Pros
+Feels Great
+Same Size as Genesis Controller (Not Original)
+Installs Easy

Cons
-Cheap Plastic
-Loose Buttons

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst thing ever *Revised* July 26, 2013
By Lucas G
Verified Purchase
This is a horrible purchase. I just received it today and within 5 minutes of opening it and connecting it to my computer it broke. This is poorly put together. the D-pad comes right off and all 6 buttons on the right are so loose that they can pop out. Dont waste money on this product.

The company has fully refunded me for the product and is not having me ship it back. They were very prompt in helping the customer out

1.0 out of 5 stars Did not last more than a couple of weeks... July 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
This product works well, while it lasts. After owning it for about 3 weeks the d-pad broke off. I put up with it, but after a little while the Y button started to stick. Then the covering that protects the wires disconnected from the pad itself, leaving wires exposed. After a few months it finally shorted out. This product has poor materials and is poor engineering. You are better off getting a gamepad from a well known manufacturer and just adapting to having a different type of controller. I won't be buying any retro controllers again unless a good company starts making them. Awesome idea, poor implementation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works! May 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
It works for what it does. It is cheaply made with with cheap plastic but it works. The buttons shake when I shake the controller. Using the controller and mashing the buttons the shake don't matter. Good button feel. SEGA made the best controller design IMHO. Simple and elegant. This is a good enough replica.

The shipping is exactly the same as the price of controller but it didn't stop me from getting the good old days nostalgia.

I was looking forward to getting the control pad and as soon as I started using it , the D-pad fell out and kept coming out. There's nothing holding it in place, there should be some sort of wedge at the bottom of the D-pad to keep it in place.

1.0 out of 5 stars One Star July 7, 2014

didn't work

Plug an Play, worked right out of the box. Quality is decent, been using for a week with no problems. It is pretty unfair to compare a $12 remake to the original controllers that were $40+ back then. I'd recommend it to someone else though.

Would be 5 stars if it had the quality of the original, but it would probably be at least 2x the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM May 19, 2014
Verified Purchase
I have never written a review of any kind before. But this item is SO AWFUL here I am. All the other reviews you see about it breaking are 100% true. Literally within 30 seconds of hooking it up to my laptop the D-Pad popped off the control. How can a company knowingly sell such a lemon-y POS???

Again, if you are remotely considering this purchase DO NOT BUY IT.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ehh.. okay
The controller is working and all but sometimes I feel that the buttons will pop up from their places. Overall, with long game play I 'm afraid it will not last much.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does what it needs to do, but be wary of quality (or lack thereof)
I recently started to get into emulators of my old favorites from when I was a kid, and there was no way I'd get the full experience of playing with a keyboard/mouse, so I decided... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets the job done quite nicely
First off, the negatives. The button mapping is a little schizophrenic. The A, B and C buttons are mapped to 3, 2 and 6 respectively. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars The buttons aren't perfect
When you shake the controlled around a little, the buttons rattle. They work fine, it just feels a little flimsy.
