Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Chun-Li
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I received two FightPads as a gift in February, 2009 (the month of its release).
Within a few weeks, one FightPad was completely malfunctioning- a defective D-Pad (downward direction glitch).
The other FightPad worked OK when used by itself; However, when playing with two FightPads simultaneously, they would interfere with one another and lose their signals (obviously, this is not a good thing to happen during fighting games).
I contacted Mad Catz, via their website. I was assured that it was an issue with the USB dongles- Mad Catz mailed me two complimentary USB dongles.
The issue continued and became progressively worse.
I once again contacted Mad Catz. This time, they requested I mail the controllers back, along with a receipt, in order to be covered by the 1 year manufacturer's warranty. I explained to Mad Catz that the FightPads were a gift, and that I had no receipt.
I also explained that the controllers were released in February of 2009. It was still the year 2009, so how could the 1 year warranty be over?
Apparently my logic was too much for Mad Catz to handle. They refused to help me without a receipt.

The design of the FightPad is excellent, but the malfunctioning wireless technology is inexcusable.
Furthermore, I am disappointed with the way Mad Catz handled my situation.
I've spent a lot of money on their products throughout the years- shame on them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great substitute for the standard PS3 controller February 17, 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Chun-Li
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
To be honest, I'm not all that familiar with MadCatz products since I've never purchased them before. I'm aware of their reputation, though, and like most people I groaned when it was announced that they were producing the official SF4 controllers.

I've heard a couple of people on other sites talking about their controllers being DOA or having non-responsive diagonals, but I bought one of these for myself and one for a friend and both work pretty well. I will say that mine got stuck in crouch a little bit earlier today, but I wiggled the D-pad and it's been working fine since.

The D-pad has a great feel, and it's much easier to pull off some of the complex motions with this than with the standard PS3 or 360 controller. The D-pad makes all the difference, and this one reminds me a lot of the old ASCII fighting pad that I imported for the Dreamcast so many years ago.

I would definitely recommend this product to fans of the game, but I'm still a little concerned about MadCatz' track record and some of the problems other people seem to be having. This is probably all we're going to get in the way of fightpads, so I guess you make do with what you've got.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fightpad broke after 2 and a half months September 29, 2009
By J. Chao
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Chun-Li|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The fightpad is alot better than the regular PS3 controller for SFIV. Unfortunately the pad isn't very well made and it broke after only about 2 months. Now I have to spend more money sending this back to the manufacturer getting it repaired. Not very happy since it wasn't a cheap controller and it only lasted 2 months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Durable September 10, 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Chun-Li
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The fightpad is great and stands up to abuse like a champ. The first night I had it I split my knuckles open on the front of it, and it was funny, 'cause it made Chun Li look like she had a bloody nose. I felt bad for hitting a woman and let the blood remain as a reminder of my shame. Over time the rage won out over the mortification, and I've smashed that thick-thighed broad right in her smug face more times than I can count. There have also been a barrage of headbutts. She has taken it all, literally, with a smile on her face. My knuckes and forehead are a little worse for the wear, so I guess if it were a straight up fight between me and Chun Li fightpad, she's winning. The battery casing comes off sometimes, so there's that. It's usually only when the fightpad temporarily takes high velocity flight across the room, though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware of these controllers July 22, 2010
By Skullw
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Chun-Li|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I have bought 2 and both have gone bad. They act like they are physically stuck in a direction even though nothing is holding it down. One died within 2 days of use and the other last about 3 weeks before it started registering left constantly. It wasn't the receivers either, it was something wrong with the board in the controller. From the sounds of it, there is a 50% chance it will die on you. When it was working it was wonderful it is just a shame they keep dieing on me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad batch for this unit March 16, 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Chun-Li|Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Two fightpads from Madcatz were ordered. This Chun-Li themed one and a Blanka themed one. For whatever reason, this Chun-Li unit is bad and I'm sending it to Madcatz soon. It simply doesn't have the same response as the Blanka unit and I've used both of them for hours on end with both Street Fighter IV and SF2THDR.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fun while it lasted... six days! August 21, 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Chun-Li|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This review is for the wireless PS3 version.

If you read all the reviews for this controller, and others like it, you'll see that it has a horrible quality issue.
I first bought the Chun-Li one and returned it after 6 days. It was around day 2 that it started showing the issue that others mentioned... losing communication with the dongle. Then the D-pad starts getting stuck to left. At day 6, the controller just wouldn't communicate, no matter what I do (replace battery, turn on/off, unplug/plugin dongle, power cycle PS3... nothing worked. That's when I returned it.

Since shipping is free, (I have Prime) I bough a Ken one. Well, I've only been using it for about an hour, and it already started acting up: losing communication with dongle, D-pad getting stuck (mostly left, sometimes down or up). It looks like this is going back also.

Editing my old review! It was working wonderfully for a few months and broke! The USB receiver will only flash the red light and will not allow a connection!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's good, but can't replace a stick.
The controller seems to be of solid build, though I wish the d-pad was a little better. I plan on using it as is for a while and then using the PCB to make a wireless stick. Read more
