4.0 out of 5 stars Good for most, but not all characters... March 28, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Ken
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an outstanding controller. Very comfortable to hold and all buttons are in easy reach. It is already perfectly set up for use with the Street Fight IV & the default button configuration. Moves requiring quarter, half & full circle movements are incredibly easy do, thanks to the floating digital pad. And they can be done consistently. It comes a with handy Turbo button which makes characters like Chun-Li & E. Honda especially dangerous.

My only problem with the controller & its floating digital pad is that it may be too sensitive sometimes. For characters that require charge attacks or precise up and down movements of the digital pad for combos, the Dualshock 3/Six-axis controller is actually easier to use & more consistent.

If you have PS3 then you already have the standard controller & I highly suggest you try out the Fight Pads to get the most out of this game. It will probably come in handy for other fighting games as well. I fully intend to use this pad on Tekken.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, not great. But better than the alternatives.. December 15, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Ken
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes, this makes SF4 much more playable. A throwback Sega six button pad. The d-pad is not quite Sega style but its pretty good for fireballing motions. However, charge characters who need precise angles to execute like Balrog, you'll find your self doing dash lows, when you want to do a dash strait. You'll also find yourself doing dragon punches when you wanted to do the double motion for an ultra. A little sensitive it is.

On the shoulder buttons, they have a nice click and feel to them. Though, I wish the left shoulder was more like a trigger. The positioning kinda stinks. This button gives me all hell with ultras needing PPP. Your lf index finger needs to "curl" to press this button considering your thumb is on the d-pad.

ON the build quality, its a lot better than people have been complaining about. In the beginning the D-pad was a little "clicky" and would stick in some positions, but you need to break in in a bit.

Look, if you are serious about SF, you need a stick. This pad is 3 times as good as the PS3 pad, but 10 times worse than a stick. I opted not to go with a stick because, though I'm becoming a SF nerd, I want to be able to play with a controller for when the guys come over, not an expensive nerdy arcade stick. But I'm temped every time I cant pull off a complex link combo. The thumb is just not as dexterous as your middle fingers. But the stick is cost restrictive, so this is the next best option.

Overall good, but only if you are slightly more than a casual SF4 gamer but less than an aspiring expert.

*******UPDATE 4/13/2010************

*sigh* I really wanted this to work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review From a 20 year Street Fighter Veteran. March 4, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Ken
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
In my over 20yrs of playing Street Fighter(in arcades and in home, with all sorts of controllers) I have to say that this is an excellent controller that exceeded my expectations. The first time you hold it in your hands you'll notice that its very lightweight, almost feels like its just a shell with no internals, this is a big plus as the weight of the required AA batteries just about makes it the same weight as the DualShock3 so theres less to feel awkward in your hand. Although it feels cheaply made, this little bugger can take a bit of a beating. I "accidentally" flung my controller into the wall after a match in SF4 and thought it would shatter but it survived and so far has shown no type of problem at all. Still connects to my PS3, the switch thats used for switching between the left and right analog stick and the digital pad work, and the turbo switch is working like it should.

Now as for responsiveness to user input, this controller is very accurate. Ive had no problems with double-fireball motions, full-circle motions, the "charge" moves (Blankas Body projectile move, Guiles "sonic-boom"). Also performing moves like Ryu's in-air hurricane kick and Akumas in-air fireball are easily executed thanks to the hovering design of the directional pad. The standard PS3 controllers directional pad is absolutely horrible for Street Fighter. The motion required to perform moves like Ken & Ryu's fireball,aka Hadouken, isnt met by the recessed and little pad thats on that controller. Ive been playing Street Fighter since it was Fighting Street on the TurboGrafix 16 (and yes thats how they spelled the name of that console)and I know how to perform all of the moves for every chatacter, and yet when I try to do one little Hadouken with Ryu while using the standard PS3 controller..

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent controller by Madkatz February 20, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Ken
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
On a whim I preordered this controller from Amazon earlier this week. Mostly because I felt that anything would be better than the standard button layout of the Dual Shock 3 controller. I have been using the Fightpad ever since I got it in the mail and it is fantastic.

Every design of this controller is focused for fighting games, the directional pad has a smooth motion to it but with positive feedback. Quarter circle and hold moves are extremely fluid and can be performed reliably, which can't be said about the Dual Shock's dpad. The buttons are in an ergonomic position so none of them are difficult to reach. The system buttons are all recessed so they won't be pushed during a battle, and there are turbo functions to ease pulling off some of the more difficult combos.

I have always been skeptical of Madcatz products but these controllers are wonderfully designed and serve their purposes well. Sadly these controllers are not backwards compatible so they won't work with your PS2 or PS1 games. At least I couldn't get it to work.

D-pad is not as responsive as the normal PS3 DS3 controller. I like the button placement for fighters, the art, wireless, and turbo option. Prob better as a collector type thing.
