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.
My first controller experienced stick drift within months of light use. Luckily it was covered under warranty and they sent me a replacement controller relatively quickly, which I truly do appreciate.
However, the replacement controller that I received has an issue out of the box where the right controller stick gets stuck when pushed downwards. It's pretty annoying, and fairly irritating given that I expected more decent build quality for a $50 wired controller when there are much cheaper options out there, especially considering this doesn't even come with vibration functionality, etc.
Maybe there's a genuine issue with build quality or I'm unlucky. Apart from the issues I experienced, the controller is definitely pleasant to use, and a nice improvement over the joycons in docked mode. I guess it's just a matter of praying they send you a decent controller from the get-go. At least their warranty is relatively generous and it's pretty easy to fill out an application form online.
Great controller, unfortunate that I'm running into these issues however :(
Exactly as my title says, instantly satisfying and makes the prospect of using the joy cons together a real struggle to think about. this is a great little controller. Sure, it's not the quality of the pro controller or the PS4 or Xbox controllers, but these controllers work and are really rugged. Have been dropped (kids) and they work perfectly. I have the Yoshi and the Donkey Kong variants. Both look attractive.
