5.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect but very good
Reviewed in Canada on 12 April 2020
Update... The stick snapped off tonight after a year or so of use. Disappointed. In almost 40 years of playing Atari, this is a first.

I’ve been playing Atari games since 1983, having used a lotta lotta different 9-pin joysticks over the years, on three 8-bit Atari platforms. Only to say I’m a veteran of the consoles and their controllers.

Having now used my Trooper joystick for several months, I’m able to provide a fair review.

I highly recommend it, with two caveats:
1) the stick itself can become unscrewed. It requires tightening quite frequently... occasionally mid-game; and
2) there is a lot of play on this stick compared to the original 2600 controllers. Quite simply, the stick needs to move further to make contact. This can hinder gameplay when very quick back and forth movements are required.

If you can tolerate these issues, you will be very happy with this controller. The fire button in particular is quite responsive.

If Trooper could combine its brilliant fire button with tighter movement, it could likely be the best Atari controller yet.

Nevertheless, the fact Trooper is putting this excellent though not perfect joystick out there in this day and age merits five stars.

Big ups, Trooper.

A new joystick is twice the cost of a used one. I paid for a new one and what I got, was a box that had been opened and then re-taped shut. Inside was a scuffed up, used joystick. I'm guessing that this is a one time oversight, but I specifically made sure to buy a brand new item. I'm hoping that the seller can send me a replacement. I'm sorry for sounding grumpy, but I was really looking forward to this and it's hard not to feel frustrated and disappointed. :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Color may Vary
Reviewed in Canada on 24 August 2020
While the item description states the color may vary, there’s no information on just what it will vary to. So I was pleasantly surprised to receive mine today, along with the Ranger, to find out the new color scheme is now to match the two. The color pattern, though applied as a decal, looks both modern & yet retro at the same time, complimenting the original Atari very well. While I appreciate the wood grain look (and wish such a thing could come back), I appreciate that Hyperkin is trying to make controllers and systems that are both evocative of the originals (as with the Retron HD / Super HD, and 77) but have their own design cues.

Hyperkin has designed some nice looking controllers at a low price point here, but the joystick is also a nice improvement (as is the Ranger game pad). The 4 decade old controllers the Atari came with, though lightly used, really felt worn out (and not to mention the Joystick/paddle Sears II controllers that felt even worse). The Trooper feels much closer to what the original controller should be based on my vague childhood recollections. A great replacement for the originals (and to save the good looking but poor feeling originals)! The stick itself doesn’t feel quite as rubbery, as I think the stick is hard plastic and only the rippled boot is rubbery, unlike the original where it was one piece of rubber overtop of plastic. Overall the Trooper probably isn’t as durable as the vintage Wico ones you can find around, but is probably the best close replacement for the originals, and should last about as long.
