5.0 out of 5 stars Best D-pad of any controller on the market January 21, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have owned the MadCatz Street Fighter 4 Fightpad, the Logitech Dual Action, and a Sega Saturn USB (Chinese clone) and I have to say that none of these pads have a D-Pad that can compare to the Hori Ex2 turbo for playing Street Fighter. I waited 5 months for this pad to come in through the mail and when I got it I was astonished at the accuracy of of its D-pad. Diagonals register well, and spinning pile drivers are surprisingly easy to pull off.

The fact that this gamepad comes with analog sticks, turbo, and a rumble feature are practically added bonuses. I only use this on my PC, but I have tried playing LEFT 4 DEAD, and the pad works exquisitely for first person shooting. The analog stick is superior to the one on logitech offerings, but may feel a bit looser than the stock XBOX 360 stick (in my opinion this is a good thing). Luckily there are sensitivity settings built into the pad.

This is literally the perfect gamepad. I have so far found no flaws with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for a week or two... August 31, 2010

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
When I first received this controller I was extremely happy. It worked like a charm! After about 2 weeks of controller bliss however, things started to go down hill. The right and left analog thumbsticks started to work on their own. I tried unplugging and resetting, but nothing. I've tried to mess with the sensitivity switch... nothing. After trying everything I could think of, I decided to shelve it. So far I haven't found anything that will work.

It's a shame this has ghosting issues. This would've been THE #1 controller to purchase for the 360.

This controller by far,is one of the most amazing controllers I have every held or use. Its sleek design makes it makes it handle with a more ergonomic touch opposed to a standard Xbox 360 controller. Its button layout is confusing (at first) but then easily meshes into the nature of game play. The joysticks have an amazing feel to them that puts your hand in constant ease. The buttons are smaller than a normal 360 controller and is liable to lots of miss-pressed buttons. That is something that is developed over time. They come well meshed so it gives a great feel to beginner-hardcore gamers. The D-pad is simply perfect. It has a great format that is standard to any adept fighting gamer (as myself) The feeling is smooth and give easy execution. Better than many D-pads I have seen thus far.

The problems with this controller (the few it has.)

1. The joysticks are overly sensitive. (this can be solved with a sensitivity option they have on the controller

2. The buttons are small (this is also works as a plus because it can execute more hard-to-do executions with a use of a thumb. Sometimes better than a entire hand.

3. Its wired. (not all things come wireless, actually some of the greatest things are wired IE the Mad Catz Tournament edition Fightstick.)

To sum it up:

-If you need a controller that doesn't cost $150.00

-If you Like to have a special controller to play fighting games without losing the use of playing other games (due to controller/button layout)

-If you are a conventional player that is looking for a pep to your step (IE Rapid fire or a decent joystick, D-pad

Then this is the controller for you. Hands down, Incredible.

EDIT: This is my 3rd updated review-

The controller completely stopped working now as both triggers do not work and none of the rapid-fire features work.

The other buttons work but cannot be set to rapid fire, the option to toggle rapid-fire is gone. (It happened in game during L4D2 Multiplayer)

It's to bad I used this controller 100% of the time for my gaming I really liked it but now it's not working at all.

I never mishandled it or damaged it, I'm 40 yrs old with no kids in the house so I know the controller hasn't been exposed to any severe drops or damage.

I'm gonna disassemble it and see if I can see any internal problems like shorted out chip or something may have dislodged.

EDIT: THIS IS a 2nd UPDATE to my original UPDATED review ,my second controller that replaced my first one has also started the ghosting issue again RIGHT ANALOG during BFBC2 and the RT doesn't even fire the in game weapon sometimes. It's possible the RT fire issues were due to EA servers and BFBC2 server issues, BUT The ghosting appears in ALL games.
Man I'm bummed I really like this controller if it weren't for the quality issues.

I'm just gonna keep swapping for another since my money is already spent , maybe I'll get lucky and get a patched version.
I've also contacted HORI about this , it seems to be a common problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghosting Fixed on this Awesome Controller October 2, 2011
By John
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We originally purchased the HORI Turbo Pad EX 2 back when they were originally released in late 2009. Shortly thereafter we started having issues with the Analog Sticks acting out. In game it would appear af if sticks were being used even though we weren't using them and when we did use them it would prevent us from going in the desired direction. The only resolution to this problem was to unplug the controller and plug it back in, but this was only a temporarly.

Based on other comments we've seen in various reviews and elsewhere this wasn't an isolated issue. Fortuantley as of September 2011 this issue as been resolved. As of late 2011, you can identify the fixed controllers by a batch code that is at least "110601" or higher stamped on the bottom right of the back of the packaging. We purchased this controller again from in September 2011 and the version we received was the updated "110601" release. If you are buying the controller long after 2011 we have you should have a higher numbered batch code. If your batch code is lower than you may have one of the older versions that may be affected by the ghosting.


I'll be keeping an updated record on the use of this "110601" NEWEST BATCH controller. I'm not using the HORI controller 100% of the time, as I'm switching between an OEM controller and the Datel EVO based on the game I'm playing at the time. However, I will be using the HORI enough to make the ghosting show up if were ever going to show up, based on past experience with the ghosting problem.

March 2013: No ghosting.
January 2013: Once in a while the controller may act wonky when first plugged in but this is easily resolved by disconnecting and reconnecting at the breakaway cable connection or main connection. Very Rare.
