5.0 out of 5 stars I finally got this controller April 2, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been waiting patiently for this controller for 2 years now. Why do you ask? Because being that this is a limited edition red x360 controller everywhere I looked this bad boy was extremely expensive. Finally after 2 years of waiting lol, Amazon pretty much is a have a 50% off the original price and I grabbed it. This is your standard x360 controller colored on red with a dock charger to connect to your xbox and it also supports batteries. I'm so happy with this deal

4.0 out of 5 stars Good controller, just wish D-pad was better March 30, 2010

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Overall I like the design of this controller. It is great for most modern games like RPGs and FPS. The reason I say modern is that with the increasing popularity of old school games on Xbox Live Arcade, this controller could use some improvements. The main problem is the D-pad. In most games I play, the D-pad is used sparingly, and usually only a single or couple of presses at a time. For that it is ok. But try playing Castlevania or Ninja Turtles and you'll quickly find it unsatisfactory. Now I know you can use the joystick but the problem with those is that sometimes the input is unclear. For example in castlevania you press Up + Attack to use your special weapon. However sometime pressing Forward + Attack will be register as Up + Attack. If you try to use the D-pad you encounter the same issue. It has this curvature that makes it feel like a bowl which takes away the feel and makes precise inputs hard. It would have been nice if they just had a simple D-pad with Up, Down, Left, and Right like on Nintendo controllers. But if you only play more modern games that are made for the 360 then I think this controller is excellent and you don't have to worry about my comments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Same excelent controller, new sexy color. October 12, 2008

This is the same controller with a nice new paint job just in time for Gears of War 2. It also comes with a play and charge kit which is why it is more expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome looking controller November 12, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This controller is red with black outlining and it looks extremely nice. Also comes with a play and charge kit so that if you don't have any batteries you can use this as an option. Really love the controller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great controller but battery could be better. July 27, 2010

Hey all this is Sam AKA Para in the gaming review community. This is one of many gaming reviews I will be starting for Amazon, so I hope you enjoy. Going to be talking about the Xbox 360 Limited Edition Red Wireless Controller and Play & Charge Kit which I have to say feels well. It is sort of light but durable. After playing for long hours I notice no pain in my hands, just the way the designed this controller it just fits right in your hands and is not stressing out you muscles or having you to curve your hands around it just to hold it. The vibration feedback is very well and is not super strong that it feels like a back massager or making your hands go numb, but it is not also so weak that you cannot even feel it. It gives just the right amount. The triggers are in just the right position and have the perfect lift to them for easy access. The joy sticks are perfectly assessable and once again do not strain your hands trying to use them. Battery life is not the best though, it could use a slight improvement but that is minor. Overall the controller is very nice and easy to use. Good work Microsoft for changing the hamburger shaped Xbox controller to this much easier to handle one. Hope this review helps and look forward for my other game reviews.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK controller, but very overpriced January 10, 2010
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This was a gift from my girlfriend since she knows how much I love red and black things. I simply love the look of this controller, but that's about where the "fun" stops. At least for mine, the left analog stick and right trigger don't feel nearly as smooth as my original white controller. And it's not because the white one was worn in, as I'd only had the Xbox about a week before I got this controller.

On top of this, the lithium battery pack is a complete joke. If left unattended for about a week, it'll be completely dead. If left plugged into the Xbox to charge, it'll be dead. The only way I was able to charge it was to "play-n-charge" or leave it connected to my PC. Though now it won't charge at all...

3 stars or 2... Can't decide, but it's pretty low on my "must have" list...

3.0 out of 5 stars Durability issues? July 8, 2009
By Feeni
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased one of these and returned it a week later because it kept dropping the wireless connection to the Xbox. Even when the battery was fully charged I would get disconnected mid-game.

Now I am on my second one and have had it 6 months and the joystick is starting to wear out. It leans to the left slightly so that when the controller is just sitting there with nobody touching it my game characters will move left on their own. I have never had a joystick wear out on me before (I still have all my N64 controllers in working condition).

I have a regular black wireless controller that works fine, so I am not sure if there are differences in manufacturing that make the red ones worse or if I just have bad luck.

5.0 out of 5 stars NEW D-PAD!!! February 28, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok well not totally new since it does look the same. Overall the controller appears to just be your basic 360 wireless with a play and charge kit and new color scheme (who can't appreciate a nice vibrant red with black analog sticks?). The big difference with this controller comes in the D-Pad. On the other wireless controller,the D-pad has four contact points being up, down, left and right. The big difference with this particular controller is now there are eight (8) contact points, the diagonal directions being added. You can tell a huge difference if you use the D-pad in circular motions. For all you looking for an improved D-pad for fighting games but don't want to spend money on a controller only for fighting games, this makes a great alternative. I have been using it for Street Fighter IV and it works great.

Got a dud, can't really comment on much.

Controller felt nice before I returned it, had a grippier feel and the analog sticks were more textured.
