I just wanted a quality controller with a good Dpad, and the previous model is too small for my hands. This is exactly what I wanted. And it's PC compatible. AND it's got that sexy 8bitdo retro aesthetic. No HD Rumble or NFC, but that's a solid compromise to me and it still has gyro~
If you need a better Dpad for 2D platformers, fighting games or Tetris, this is a VERY good option even if you don't have a Switch~
My controller arrived and it didn't seem as new as they claimed, at least as far as the box was concerned. Some minor scratches from shipping were on the box were a whatever thing but the inside had some dust and other lil' bits of debris from what might be a previous owner or a refurb place. I doubt it was refurbished because the controller itself seemed perfect. It was just odd bits of bits of dust and particles on the plastic covering.
Okay onto the review that's directly effecting the score:
First of all, download the ultimate software for this off 8bitdos website, it allows you to easily update the controller and modify bits of it for PC and POSSIBLY Switch use. I haven't played a lot with this and my Switch just my PC. This is important you don't ignores this as one of the updates straight up says it's to help fix controller lag with the Switch with the Joycons attached. That's a BIG update if I read one.
On to my experience
After 10 minutes of just making sure everything was set I played about 4 hours of Monster Hunter World on PC with rando's & a friend and it's very, very impressive. It doesn't feel like a 3rd party controller, it really feels like a proper 1st party controller which is weird since I'm used to the XB1 rev1 , PS4 & WiiU Pro controllers. This feels like an odd mix between the PS4 and a SNES controller. Not in any badway just weird in the hands if that makes sense.
There's several modes that the controller can function with, with PC for the most part you want it to be set to XInput as that's the standard for that, by holding start+X it'll boot into that. For switch you hold start+Y. You only need to do this if you're changing the device you're pairing it with. If you've already synced it, you just need to hold start. So it's quick like that.
The buttons all feel solid as do the sticks, I didn't have any problem with Monster Hunter other than my hands feeling a Nintendo controller & the game being mapped for a XB controller. Each button felt responsive as did the sticks. I really couldn't see anything to complain about here. The triggers are analog so they'll give you the responsiveness you might want for PC and they work perfectly fine for Switch despite it not having analog.
I played a bit of Freedom Planet on Switch (10 minutes or so) which can be demanding given your dpad inputs+attack/special inputs can change a lot. There's nothing I noticed here, dpad felt fine and I didn't go in a random direction when using my specials or attacks and I couldn't spot any delay. This is a game I've put over 150 hours into as I enjoy it so I think I'd be able to notice something really standing out.
The controller comes with a USB -C charging cable which has a USB3 jack on the other end, so charging the controller is plenty easy. And unlike the PS4 controller if you don't want to use the pack they include, you can pop the battery cover open, remove the battery pack and slot in your own enloops- which I did for my first test run as I didn't want to wait to charge my controller.
It worked great, I can't speak for batterylife in this review but I'd imagine it'd be fine considering it's basically a XB1 controller in it's functionality. I'm sure I can promise with CONFIDENCE this is better in 90% of ways than a PS4 controller with PC. I've had experience with that controller on PC and it was fine but would need 3rd party drivers for most games, which actively told me I had lag despite being only 2-3 feet max away from the adapter & the battery life of the PS4 controller even with 3rd party apps adjusting the brightness of the bar to dim or OFF- the batt life was still poor. This I'm sure will do much better. My MD30's batt life seems absurd.
The grips feel better than they look in the pics, they look like they're kinda just slapped on to make up for the complaints for the regular SN30 controller but actually they felt pretty nice. They feel like a PS4 controller's grips and sticks with a SNES being the base for the face of the controller.
I've seen some complain in the reviews but I'm not seeing those issues honestly. I got some cheap-y ASUS adapter for PC and my switch is maybe 3-5 feet away from the controller with direct line of sight and I noticed no lag nor had any issues hooking them up. It was about 10 minutes to get the controller updated & working on PC with xinput and less than a minute for the switch. You don't have NFC for switch but I doubt that's an issue for most.
The short: Do you need a controller for PC or Switch but don't feel like shelling out a boat load of cash for a Switch Pro controller or a XB1 controller+wireless adapter.
This can serve you just fine. There's no limitations to speak of for either device as they don't need an adapter *PC WILL NEED SOME FORM OF BLUETOOTH OR JUST WIRE IT) .
The software and controller options are very, very robust, it's a good feeling controller and I couldn't spot any lag what-so-ever.
This doesn't feel like those janky madkatz controllers you'd get because they were cheap, this genuinely feels like a 1st party controller but has the versatility of no platform to claim loyalty to. You can easily use it between PC, Switch, android and iOS with a small button combo to change it when you need it. I've used the MD30 controller much the same with PC & Switch and that was great & this seems to mirror that experience.
I also read in the instructions turbo doesn't work in Switch Mode. That is why I bought this.
I connected it to the Windows software and the Macros are extremely limited. You can only initiate a macro by clicking one of the buttons. So if you have a game that uses all the buttons, the macros won't help very much.
VERY BIG SHAME because the controller LOOKS AND FEELS AWESOME AWESOME! Fantastic build quality, but not production ready :(
I am returning :(
Very satisfied. I might get another one if they make it in the N64 color scheme, as I don't love the black edition but like it better than the Gameboy and SNES color schemes.
