To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Pros: Fantastic battery life The best controller for the switch.
Cons: Ludicrously expensive Very weighty Bulky. D pad feels a bit weird too. Cable it comes with is too short, and why no plug with it? Internal battery. Sure now it seems good but 1 year down the line the battery will be shot and you'll have to blow another 65 quid on a new controller. No audio jack.
Definitely the worst controller out of the 3 major consoles. It's just an odd shape. I take it it's because they've put a massive battery inside but it's actually a bit awkward to use the shoulder buttons properly because of it's shape.
Overall: It's not the worst controller in the world it's just the other 2 main consoles do it better, and really this should be £20, not £65. Not to mention one should really come with the switch as it's pretty much an essential to play proper single player games.
The controller is really comfortable to hold and has excellent battery life at around 40 hours from one charge. It's the best controller available for the Switch and I much prefer it to the PS4 standard controller.
I've been a long serving fan of the Smash series and ever since Smash for the Switch was announced I had to have the matching controlled and to no suprise it is a lovely piece of kit. The design is simple yet elegant and I am very pleased to have picked it up. Any smash fans out there it's a must buy, for anyone looking for a new control you can in no way go wrong here.
This is now my favourite controller. In my opinion, the joycons on the switch felt quite flimsy, and were prone to odd noises and feeling overall quite cheap.
This controller is the opposite: it's high quality, the rumble is great, every button is satisfyingly clicky and tactile, and the sticks are equally satisfying to push. So far, I've barely mis-inputted a thing.
If you're buying this, presumably you own Smash Bros Ultimate (and are an individual of distinguished taste). In my opinion, it's great for that: There's barely any latency, especially when you consider the latency problems reported with the official GC controller and adaptor. With jump set to L, short and full hop aerials, usually the woe of cheap controllers, are a breeze, and grabbing and shielding is effortless.
In terms of battery life, when charged fully, it charges quite quickly and will long outlast the battery life of the Switch itself.
