    Nice Collector Piece

    First, don't get me wrong, i like the controller and i got it as a gift from my sweetheart, awesome gift to get someone by the way, well maybe my girlfriend wouldn't appreciate this gift as much as i do, but at least she does play Gears of War with me. Anyway, to the pros and the cons. Pros, nice artwork, well done, the finish is fade resistant so it's made for use. You get a little figure that you can stick on top of the tv, or the xbox or wherever. Though it tips over easily, scotch tape to the rescue. Cons, mine stopped accepting the xbox live headset after 1 month. I don't know what happened but when i plug in the headset it simply won't work, but the headset functions on every other controller i have. That's the one complaint i have. That and the fact that no one else really notices the controller like say artwork on a wall or even the faceplate on your xbox. Even you won't really pay attention much, it's more of a 'just knowing its there' appreciation. I would recommend this to the halo fan, but it's no different than any other controller and i think i prefer the feel of the regular controllers, that is just the gameplay perspective, i still use this controller regularly with friends. Overall buy it if you like it, otherwise it doesn't truly matter which controller you get, so long as it's wireless, and this one is. Because of that i can't recommend this over the regular controller for gaming, but i highly recommend this controller for the Halo fan. So 4 stars as a controller, 5 for the Halo fan, if that helps.

    Todd McFarlane at his best

    I just got this item for my birthday and I will tell you that this is a lot better then the regular controllers. I don't know if it's just that it's new, but everything about the controller is a lot tighter. The controls are a little stiffer and so you can feel the game more. As far as the stats go, it is all the same as the other by Microsoft. Wireless with a 2.4GHz RF technology, you can now pick up the black play and charge kit for it because of the elite (and the back of this controller is black). The artwork on the front is phenomenal and done by Todd McFarlane. There is also a little Spartan figure that comes with the controller. Definitely a great buy for anyone (even if you don't play Halo).

    This is by far the besy controller i have used. This is ny fifth controller, i bought it because its limited edition, and i wasnt going to open it, then i used my friends one, and i loved it, so i did open it, this is the greatest controller you will ever use, i love it. It is a great thing to have if you love halo. Even if you dont love halo that much, buy this, just because its halo dosent mean anything,. this is a great controller. I always use this. I feel that everyone should buy this controller. It is perfect for halo fanatics, its limited edition, the art work is fantasticly done, I dont thing anybody can make a better halo controller

    While I was ready to jump on board and buy one of these controllers for my halo 3 playing experience, I instead looked at one in Best Buy first. Realize that these controllers are $10 more than any other one. Also, the Halo theme on the controllers looks more like a bad artistic rendition of a Saturday morning cartoon lunch-box than the beautiful computer-rendered art on the halo box. If it had been done a bit better looking I would buy it right away but the controller just looks like something an 8 year old would play with while watching Blue's Clues.

    I love this controller! It is easily the best looking XBOX 360 controller available. Todd McFarlane did an awesome job on the artwork.You also get a cool Master Chief mini figurine made by McFarlane toys. I just got this controller,and it is by far the coolest controller ive ever had for any system.I also bought the black rechargable battery for it since the back of it is black. Long story short...If you have the means,I highly recommend you pick one or both (there is also a Brute one) of these bad boys up!

    Very good quality product

    I had to argue with myself about getting this controller for my brother because of the 60 dollar price tag. However, as soon as i opened the package i felt the really smooth and nice texture to the front faceplate of the controller. It makes it seem like it is superior to the plain white xbox 360 controller (excluding the visual factor) If you don't have four controllers yet and are preparing for Halo 3, you should get this controller. Plus, it's only available for a limited time.

    Just another controller

    The controller seemed to be manufactured to a lower quality standard. The left side of it had a noticeable gap where it is supposed to close at the crack. The top cover - the face of the controller with the artwork did not conform perfectly with the bottom part of the controller. Normal gameplay would cause you to pinch the skin of your palm. Also, the mini master chief couldn't stand on his own feet. Had to return for another. And this is supposed to be a premium product over the standard? I will stick with the regular controllers

    Not worth the money...

    It's great that Microsoft released the Halo 3 Limited Edition controllers, but they look hideous in my opinion. They could have put the 3d version of MasterChief on there but they hand drew it. It just looks disorganized and ugly. I actually enjoy the regular black or white controllers better. They are clean cut and look nice. I would not recommend getting this controller because it costs $10 extra for a controller that looks ugly and can function same as the original controllers do.

    W00t, controller!

    Same great X-Box 360 wireless controller, wicked graphics, glossy finish! It's like a gem among matte controllers! Don't stare too hard 'cause you're bound to chew a few grenades when you ain't lookin'. I know it's PRETTY, but what Master Chief can't see won't hurt him. ... I take that back. But buy the controller. You'll be all like,"OOOOH." every time you pick it up. And besides, the world ain't gonna save itself!

    The "Spartan" & "Brute " controller's, what a way for you halo lover's out there ( there are a lot of you) to have your own personalized controller to take on the the game itself or other halo competitor's. I believe this will become "eye candy" when you are around your friends wiping up the floor with them in Halo 3. I WILL be scooping one up for myself, $59.99 not a bad price.

    haloandCoDfan

    I'm a huge fan of Todd McFarlane thats why I bought this controller. I hate people that come on here and dis the controller because it looks bad. I would like to see them draw any thing better than Todd. any ways the controller is for halo and Todd McFarlane fans or for people looking to add some thing different to there controller collection. Thats why i gave it five stars.

    A limited edition item you dont want to miss out

    The Microsoft Halo 3 Limited Edition Wireless Controller functions just like another Xbox 360 wireless controller. The only difference is the artwork done by Todd McFarlane. The picture on the website does not do it justice. It's an absolute must-have if you're a Halo 3 fan. You really feel like you're gaming when you hold one of these bad boys. I highly recommend it. A+

    Good Controller

    I would have to agree this would probably be a great controller if you're a fan of the game, but just remember you're paying for it. It looks nice, but you will have to determine if the artwork justifies the purchase. If you're a fan...then, go for it. I'm sure it will get a few comments from your friends.

    I highly recommend this controller for you Halo lovers!!! The design + colors are awesome!!! The only thing I don't like is the texture, but that is just because I am used to the normal 360 controllers. <--- That is no big deal at all though!!! BUY THIS CONTROLLER!!!

    Very cool, graphics not cheap stickers

    I bought this because it was part of a promotion deal, but it's pretty sweet. The graphics aren't cheap stickers, I'm not really sure what they are, but I don't foresee any wear. The back of the controller is black, so, buy a black battery if you use battery packs.

    All I can say is thank god for Todd McFarlane. I am glad that he spent the time to do the art work for this controller. If i was a good as an artest as he is, I'd try to do the same thing. but, luckly for me, I work for microsoft.

    Microsoft's realease of the Halo version Xbox 360 controls is fantastic. But really I do not recommend it unless you are a collector of Halo products. For $59.99 you can go out and purchase the game itself...

    My other controller is a Warthog

    This is the only controller variant that has a Warthog on it. Who can top that? We can't use a real warthog on an Xbox 360, so this one will do. Kudos for style, WOOT!
