5.0 out of 5 stars Not amazing, but it works., October 28, 2000

This review is from: PlayStation 2 Dualshock Controller Black (Video Game)
When magazines described the Dual Shock 2 as having all analog buttons I sort of expected a mushy button feel so you knew how far you were pressing, etc... Instead, the buttons feel like normal PS1 Dual Shock buttons but depending on how hard you push them it can give a different reaction in the game.
This is a kind of nice feature since the buttons feel the same as the old PS1 controller but it has an extra level of sensitivity. The only time it is a pain though is if you just tap it sometimes it won't register.
All in all, I would say buy the Sony controller and skip out on the 3rd parties. All the people I know who have bought 3rd party controllers sold them and bought Sony within the next day.

^ Either you must not know very many gamers, or those gamers must not know which third-party controllers to obtain.

Please, would you tell us which third-party controllers are better or equal to Sony's own?
