    I initially bought this to play games on my new Surface when I'm out and about. It feels so right, that I use it with my Surface, Android phone, and Nvidia Shield. Great for retro and modern games. Connects easily and reliably. I plan to get a second controller to take with me for random 2-player gaming opportunities on the bus, lunch breaks, at the park.

    D-Pad is a vast improvement

    |
    Posted .

    If you have small hands then this controller is surprisingly ergonomic. Buttons feel great and low travel time when using the D-Pad, which has a much more satisfying press than even the Pro Controller. The inclusion of the analog sticks are fantastic. Look and feel exactly like the PS4 DS4, and even in the same location. Very easy to pair with a Nintendo Switch and the included charge cable is an added bonus.

    Controller 5 Stars, Best Buy 0, missing cable

    The controller is amazing! The quality felt like the oem SNES controller as I still have my original controllers. The analog sticks feel like they were there all along, as well as the L2/R2 buttons! I use this on my Switch, phone, and am trying to figure out how to use on a PS4. The bad was I purchased one from Best Buy that said was Open Box Excellent Condition and included everything. This has never happened before but I guess an employee was feeling lazy and did not check the contents of the box. Luckily I have other USB-C cables. I cannot go to the store to return it and its a hassle online. I tried to call and the wait time was over two hours. So just be wary if you buy an open box controller that says everything is in there.

    I recently purchased the Nintendo switch and I don’t prefer the Joy cons. I found this joystick, which is one of my favorite joystick’s type. I’ve owed every Nintendo except the Nintendo 64. So you can imagine that I have experience using different Nintendo joysticks. It connects easily to the game console, the buttons do not stick, and the wireless range extends really far. The look, feel and configurations are the same as the original. I amVery pleased with this joystick and in conclusion, I refuse to share it with my kids 7,18,20.... lol

    The Best Switch, PC, and backpack Controller.

    I purchased this on my birthday and let my tell you it has replaced every controller it can in my home. I use it for every Switch and Pc game I play. It works just as well with games like Paper Mario: Origami King, Halo the Master Chief Collection for PC, and puts me back in the mind of classic games when using an emulator to play my backed up game boy advance games. If you're looking for a new controller, and trying to get away from the drifting issues of Nintendo's primary line of joy-cons and even pros, this controller, which does include motion, is the best replacement, at a better price point. PS this does work with iPhone and iPad if you use the accessibility function, it doesn't say it on the box but I use it this way regularly, google it!

    Great controller! I bought it for playing NES and SNES games on the Nintendo Switch. While the Pro controller is great for Switch games, it didn’t have the right feel for the older virtual console games. The 8BitDo did the trick. It’s not the cheapest thing out there, but the quality is top notch and the ‘button-feel’ is at least as good as the original system controllers. No lag, either. Battery life is also outstanding - I charge it every few days, but never seen it drop below 50%, even after hours of constant play.

    This controller is great, it can be paired with multiple devices at a time and has great accuracy. It also packs pretty well, given its fairly flat form factor. I would definitely buy this again in a heartbeat, it would be really great if they made a phone clip which could hold the Galaxy Fold 2 for this controller. Definitely try and buy it on sale

    With a tried, tested and true shape that has been seamlessly updated to modern standards, absolutely a controller that belongs in any collection. Fantastic analogue sticks that feel better than the sticks I have used on other similar controllers such as the Switch pro controller, amazing D-PAD that functions with the best of them which is sure to keep 2D aficionados happy, solidly constructed face buttons with trigger buttons that just have an oh so satisfying click when you press them.

    Very well made and lots of possibilities for connecting to different systems via USB or Bluetooth. I bought primarily to use with a Raspberry Pi 4 via Bluetooth and it works well. The buttons are arranged well and respond nicely. The D-pad is a little stiff, but very responsive. The analog joysticks are well-placed and work really well. Expensive, but you get what you pay for!

    This controller is a jack of all trades. It will work great for modern games on a Nintendo Switch, PC, and Nvidia Shield. The controller feels great in hands too. Has a familiar feel to it to those that have used controllers for the last decade on various consoles. I have medium large hands and the controllers feel good in hand. I thought it would feel way smaller than a regular sized controller. It doesnt feel too small. Its smaller but not by much. Buttons all feel solid and well made. No creaking on the body either. The only negative I can see is that sometimes reconnecting it can be tricky or even connection it for the first time. Its not always an automatic thing. You sometimes have to try multiple times. But for such a great product I can live with that.

    excellent quality. we use it for the switch. the buttons feel nice to press. the nostalgia of it is what initially drew me to buy. its perfect for your kids that keep causing the joy cons to drift (hehe) ...seems durable thus far. CON: not as nice to hold as Nintendo's pro controller for larger hands. but still fun to use if not for anything else, get it for the kids to use, or your light gaming needs. its a great cheaper alternative. i bought 2.

    Retro Gaming Must Have

    Owned for 2 months when reviewed.

    Got two of these for my Raspberry PI 4 running RetroPie. They were nearly seamless to setup. They hold a charge well, fit nicely in the hand, and work for all games I've tried them with. Some reviewers have complained about the buttons being offset slightly from the original SNES controllers. I have some original SNES controllers that I still use and although I agree that the offset is noticeable, it does not affect my game play at all. I highly recommend these controllers for any retro gaming, but they are also versatile enough to work for most new games too!

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1, that I use SNES and NES emulators on, and this controller connects wirelessly to my tablet without lag and amazing response, so as far as performance it exudes expectations. The size is practically the same as original SNES controller except it's a little bit heavier due to the built-in battery. I felt it was a little pricey but considering the cost of most controllers I'm very happy with this purchase and the quality of the device.

    This is a great controller. Seeing as how the official SNES controller for Switch is always sold out on Nintendo's website, this is the next best thing, maybe even a bit better with the inclusion of the two sticks and trigger buttons. It also works on your phone, if you're into that kinda thing. Just remember to update the firmware to make sure everything is up to date!

    One of the best 3rd party switch gamepads for the money. Love the classic SNES style. Buttons are larger than switch joycon buttons and feel great. Triggers are responsive. Vibration feels similar to joycon’s. I use this pad for playing Hades and Stardew Valley on switch and it handles nicely for both styles of games.

    I researched some pad for games and most of non brand is cheaper than 8bitdo controlller but most of a gamer recommended this controller for their emulator or platform. I tested this one for a few days and this one is for all my computer and emulator controller. First i used it for Amazon Firestick and it works but it wont work for retropie with usb wires. I checked official website and download the firmware to update it then it works well. I highly recommend this one for a retro gamer.
