First things first, on the subject of performance:
The stick itself can be switched to function in analog mode for games like the Tekkens and Soul Calibers. It doesn't truly work like an analog, meaning you can't move it in one direction a little or a lot. It merely tells the consle that it is an analog stick. However, fightsticks are called fightsticks because they're uni-taskers. You can't do much with them other than fighting games. As such, to the reviewers posting their Caps Lock-ed "THIS STICK SUCKS1!!! I CANT PLAY OTHER GAMES WITH IT!!1!!!" What did you expect? The PS2 controller has two full analog sticks as well as a D-pad and most other games make use of all of them. Plus, all things considered, this stick is fairly inexpensive.
The stick doesn't "click" like Sanwa/Seimetsu (or that style) sticks. If you've gotten used to sticks like that then there will be a slight period of adjustment so you can get used to the smooth movement. It has an incredibly tight range of movement so it does not take much to pull off most of the motions required in games like Street Fighter and King of Fighters. The trade off is that you have to be careful. For the first few minutes I was using it I found myself over-shooting most of my Quarter-Circle Forward motions.
The buttons are pretty solid, very large with a truly comfortable layout. Again, these don't work as "analog" buttons in analog mode. However, I have to say I like them. They maintain a good arcade feel. Most of the games don't require much of an adjustment to make them suitable for games using 6 buttons.
The over-all unit is fairly small, but the layout and design make smart and efficient use of the space available. It is on the light side so be careful.
It is a wireless unit, but I did not notice a single occurence of lag. Intec made many wireless controllers for the PS2 so they were pretty well-versed in making them work. The package proudly proclaimed that this thing can work up to 30 feet. I cannot vouch for this since it would be impossible to get a full 30 feet from my console. I also can't think of why anyone would WANT to play a video game that far away from the TV. One problem I had is the blue Intec logo (the small oval in the center of the stick below the center buttons) lights up to show connectivity. When it is connected the light stays on. It's incredibly bright, almost distracting. They could probably have squeezed another hour out of the battery had they gone with a dimmer light. I can't vouch for the battery life because the stick didn't last that long. Read on for details.
On the subject of the unit itself:
It is (as previously stated) kind of small when compared to most other sticks. Even my Saturn Ascii stick or my Dreamcast Toppmax arcade stick are larger than this thing. I spent slightly less on either of those sticks than I did on this one. The rubber pad below the buttons is nice, it helps to ensure stability for that hand. I didn't notice the one for the stick because the way I play I don't rest my left hand like that. It is also pretty light and made of fairly flimsy material. My initial impression when I got it out of the package was that it should have cost me less than what I paid for it. The stick and the buttons felt sturdy, but the case itself felt incredibly cheap. Sadly, this proved to be the truth. Without going into the gorey details I have to say that this stick did not survive its first real energetic session of Street Fighter Alpha Anthology. I had inflicted significantly less abuse on this stick than my Saturn Ascii, Dreamcast Topmaxx, or PS3 Hori Real Arcade Pro 3 (of course that one was $100 so it's a cut above the other two) and it failed miserably. I didn't even make it through a single run of the first Street Figher Alpha (the first game I played with it) before it broke. The right side around the buttons broke off, almost completely. This thing could have used some metal, they could have at least made the bottom out of a metal plate. It seems that, because of the price, they had to compromise somewhere. They decided to use decent electronics and sacrifice the structural integrity. As such, I would imagine that if some common, everyday misfortune were to befall your purchase it would probably suffer the same fate. As an example, dropping it from your lap more than once or twice, or dropping something on it.
My final word:
There is so much about this stick that makes me want to recommend it to someone looking at it as an inexpensive solution to get a fightstick for their PS2. However, I don't know many fighting game players (even those who are casual players just looking to enhance the experience) who are as gentle on fightsticks as you would have to be to keep this thing from shattering like glass in your lap (which even sounds bad!). Save the money, most of the other sticks I've found on here are priced about the same as this one. I don't know which one you should buy, I just know you shouldn't buy this one unless you can truly baby it through every session.
batteries which almost everybody has and my Digital Camera
happens to use... this means I can recharge them no problem.
As far as the advertised 30 feet? I can't help you with that... My PS2 is only about 5 feet from my sofa.
As to lag time.... I haven't seen any as of yet. I've played
Rumble Roses, The Guy Game, and even BurnOut: Revenge ( not what
it was designed for ) and it worked great.
The button placement will take a few minutes of getting used
to as the layout is nothing like a standard gamepad. They are layed out in two rows. If you ever played " Defender " in the
arcade you'll recognize the configuration.
For the price paid it seems like a good deal. It comes with a
5 year warranty so they will replace it... unless you abuse it.
For $11 I highly recommend it. For more than $20 i'd say NO.
