1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Horrific...., August 7, 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I rarely give such negative reviews, I don't enjoy doing that. But when a product is so bad, sometimes I feel inclined. This controller looks ALOT like a PS2 controller. But do not be fooled, it does not play ANYTHING like a real PS2 controller. I've played many third party controllers over my time, I've played some really terrible ones over the years. This is THE WORST controller I've ever played. I bought this for the main reasons most people would buy this, its a wireless PS2 controller and it looks just like the real PS2 controller. Thats the only good things about this controller. Its built horribly cheap, it feels like it weighs almost nothing. It makes the real PS2 controller seem heavy. It takes a while to actually get the thing to work, at first I thought it was sync problem, but actually appears that the On/Off circut board which is very cheaply popping out the botton of the controller, is simply poorly made, I had to keep turning it on and off before it finally recognized. The battery setup is not any better, the batteries barely fit, it was a very cheap mold they used to let you put the batteries in. Finally, once you get past the mess of getting it started up, then you have to deal with the buttons not working or being very unresponsive. Every button, trigger, bumper, stick is bad on this thing. The D-Pad and front face buttons are probably the worst. My start button on this controller would stick alot. This is a big piece of junk, I returned it, something I rarely do but this is broken beyond redemption.

I just recently bought this and had the similar problems. It is very deceptive because it looks almost identical to a normal ps2 controller so you think it is a reliable controller sony made controller but this is not the case. I have alot of experience with controllers and I have never had as bad as an experience as I have with this one. The major problem with this controller is that the delay from you pressing the actual button and then the game registering it is horrendous. It is literally a 3-4 second delay which makes it impossible to the use the controller. I honestly don't know how something like this was able to make it on to the market. The delay is just so horrible its literally impossible to use this controller effectively at all.

Thanks. I hate giving bad reviews also but I hate even more giving bad items to unsupecting kids. I appreciate the review and wonder if you know a wireless psp2 conroller that works well, hopefully not to costly. It's for an 8 year old who loses everything.

Hi, If you mean a PS2 wireless controller. There is no perfect solution. There is the Logitech Wireless PS2 controller, which is considered the best around. I didn't like it, its built well but I felt either there were pressure problems or lag. I owned two, they were both the same way. I liked the PDP/Pelican Wireless PS2 controller, it's the only Wireless PS2 controller I use now. Generally opinions on that controller is mixed. I felt the reaction time was great, very close to a wired PS2 controller, the build quality was a little less then the Logitech. But generally I was happy with all aspects of the controller. So in my opinion, one of those two if you must own a Wireless PS2 controller. But unfortunately, none match the great official wired PS2 controller. Nor do any match the official wireless PS3 controller. The main problems are build quality and lag. But those two wireless controllers get close in my opinion.
