4.0 out of 5 stars Unbiased Review... Don't pay extra! March 9, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Just so everyone knows -- these sticks are not Limited Edition or anything of the sort. They are being made according to the limits of production in relation to demand. Madcatz has never stopped making these sticks. This is perhaps the most unbiased review you will read... so listen up.

Oh, and don't bother paying anything more than retail. That's a joke.

Anyways, to the review...

If you pay anything more than $90 for this stick, you will be severely disappointed. Not only will you be required to void the warranty on the controller to prevent the joystick from breaking -- but replacing it with a new one will bring the cost up to near 'Tournament Edition (149.99)' prices.

What you are paying for is labor and an arcade stick box -- REMEMBER THAT. Quality arcade controllers run from $100 to $200 because of the labor involved, the inner circuitry/wiring, and the cost of the parts. For $80 you are getting a stupidly good deal on a box, controller functionality, and labor. A control pad for any system will run you about $50, so you are only paying $30 for the cost of high quality wiring, additional materials (obviously, the stick is big) and additional labor. It is a fantastic deal.

Here's what you are getting pretty much for free: The joystick and buttons. The parts inside are good for anyone new, but they will not last without your help. I'm talking a month or so max without personal modifications; with the joystick itself lasting you from a day to a few weeks(they are defective, check Madcatz' official site for info. They mention a small amount only, but I can guarantee you will not be risking it with $80 worth of equipment or more). IF YOU CAN FIX IT YOURSELF, AND DON'T FEAR OPENING IT UP AND VOIDING THE WARRANTY -- THE PARTS ARE REASONABLE.

3.0 out of 5 stars Do not pay more than retail for this. May 11, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
If you're looking for a great arcade stick box to mod this is the thing you need. You don't need to solder anything due to everything being quick disconnects.

But for the regular consumer this product... well at least mine... was a piece of crap.

Defects:
-Joystick sticking to the right due to loose washer
-5 out of the 8 buttons stopped registering more than %50 of the time before my sanwa parts came in
-Screws holding the stick were stripped and the stick fell through the box the first day I recieved it.

For $80 a controller should not do that, no matter what you're buying it for. I was never rough with it or slammed the buttons. I'm a very light tapper and I'm very relaxed on the joystick. If it wasn't for the fact that I'm technically savvy when it comes to arcade sticks this would have been a nightmare purchase for me.

Edit: Raised the rating a bit due to being mod friendly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great even after months of heavy use February 6, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I bought this back in April '09, during the craze when arcade sticks were impossible to find. I would have preferred the tournament edition, but this popped up on Amazon and I grabbed it. I've been very happy with it overall. I'll assume most people are looking at this as a controller for Street Fighter or other fighting games. I have played a fairly heavy amount of matches on this stick for the past several months with no difficulties, and I highly recommend it.

I first became interested in switching to a stick because I wanted to start playing charge characters. This is the typical Bison/Blanka/Chun/Guile sort of character whose moves are something like charge back 2 seconds then forward + kick. First and foremost, charge motions just don't work very well on a normal controller's directional pad. Additionally, one of the easiest ways for a newbie to learn charge characters is to sit on a down-back charge quite a bit. This stick has a square gate on it, so that the motion of the stick has four corners along the boundary of the stick's action. This makes it extremely easy to charge down and back at the same time because there's a corner there to tuck into. Advanced players don't rely on the corners in the gate for inputs, because if your reflexes are amazing and precise then you get quicker motion between directional inputs by pushing the stick just far enough to trigger the input. But for a newbie, a square-gated stick is a godsend for learning to play these charge characters. For roll-motion characters like Ryu or Ken, some people may feel more comfortable using the analog stick on a regular xbox controller, or even the d-pad (if you grew up playing SF2 on the Super Nintendo, you can probably manage.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This stick is an excellent choice for anyone looking for the upperhand in Street Fighter IV or any other 2-D style fighting game. The casing is great quality and its size makes it very portable. The standard buttons and joystick are decent quality and are a fine choice to play with.

However, those willing to go the extra mile are apt to find this stick's true potential. While doing so will void the warranty, if you open the stick up you will find that it is very customizable. For mine, I ordered all Sanwa replacement buttons and a Sanwa joystick with an octagonal restrictor plate (the square restrictor late is standard). It is a bit risky to do this kind of thing if you are not familiar with how to do it but it's also quite easy to figure out if you are patient and have a bit of technical savy.

With all the replacement parts, my stick is equal to the Tournament stick in every way accept for the empty area to store my cord. Since that's a feature I don't even use on my Tournament Stick (yes, I have both) it's a moot point.

If you are looking for a stick that will let you compete properly, this stick is a fine choice. If you are looking for a Tournament Stick and can't find one or can't afford one, the customizing options open to you on this stick are a great alternative. I can't recommend it enough!
