The FightPad was a drastic improvement over the Xbox 360 controller. I was able to pull off combos a whole lot easier. The d-pad was just a ton better, and things were going very well. The problem came when you needed to use more than 1 button at a time. Like air dashing in MvC2, or doing the + moves where you use 2 buttons at a time in SF4. That was just a pain to effectively pull off everytime, because my thumb just doesn't angle in that manner. So I bit the bullet and I decided I was going to try out the FightStick.
I made the right decision.
If you are going to play a fighting game. This is the stick to get. The build is damn solid. I have played many, many hours on this, and I haven't had ANY problems. I am not knowledgeable at all these things like Sanwa, and Seimitsu, but this stick really holds up. The buttons never stick, and the joystick never sticks either. There are a few suggestions I have on maximizing your enjoyment on this product.
1. Get the octagonal restrictor plate (it's a few $ on lizardlick). The default restrictor plate is a square. That was kinda awkward for me because I am used to octagonal restrictors in the arcade. What I mean by square is that it locks in on the corners (upper left, right, lower left, right), but it doesn't have a solid feel for up down left right. This was annoying for me.Read more ›
As an owner of an Hori Real Arcade Pro 3 stick, I must say this stick is clearly superior out of the box. The buttons are of substantially higher grade, the panel is easily changeable (for custom art), the stick is ported directly from the arcade Street Fighter 4 cab.
The stick also features amenities that show it was made with a lot of love by people who play with arcade sticks. The housing for the USB cord is convenient, discrete and useful. The internals are easy to get to (simple removal of 6 screws on the top plate, allowing direct access to all parts), which is significantly faster than my HRAP3 (which requires removal of the bottom panel and a socket wrench to remove nuts inside the device in order to open the top panel. The top panel itself is large enough to allow for hands to rest comfortably. Turbos are cool.
There is more than can be said about how good this stick is, but the bottom line is this: For those looking for a stick that is by virtually all accounts PERFECT out of the box, your choice is clear.
If you can find this stick, don't hesitate.
Anyway, I am an owner of both Madcatz Stand Edition (SE) and Tournament Edition (TE) Stick, and I gotta to say the TE stick is just simply amazing.
Comparing to the SE Stick, the TE stick is bigger and a little bit heavier. The bigger room on the stick allows my arm to rest while I am playing, and all the buttons are very sensitive. Before I couldn't pull out some moves such as Ken's light upper cut with ex-canceling follow by by the ultra become piece of cake(For those who plays SFIV I am pretty sure you know how difficult it can be with d-pad or SE stick).
Overall, I have no complains. I currently have 3500 BP + and with over 1000 games victories (80% winning), and thanks for the TE Stick I now have chance to go for 4000 BP or even 5000 BP if I work hard.
Some tips for those Madcatz SE Owner:
If you own the SE Stick, I suggest you purchase Sawyana's part online, and mod your stick, as the cheap part Madcatz uses on the SE Stick is just horrible. I have modded mine, and I gotta to tell you after I modded my SE Stick, no more sticky buttons, no more character crunch by itself, and all the combo become a lot easier to do. The only complains is I have no room to rest my arm.
