    I bought this controller for my brother in law as a Christmas gift. He definitely likes it and he said the loved the color scheme. He is 18 yrs and plays Halo 5, Call of Duty, Destiny, FIFA 16, (just to give people an idea of the games he plays). I opened the box so that I can take a look and get a feel for it, I also wrapped it in a Michael Kors box just to mess with him. Anyways, as I held it in my hand it feels sturdy as the stock one does. The palm area has a slight grip but not overwhelming. The cool thing that I liked was the it has a head phone jack at the bottom of the controller, therefore allowing you to hook up and type of gaming set or head phones. The controller does nothing special other than look cool, it's no where near as the Elite. The rumbling effect is adequate, but it is not greater than the stock one. I gave it for 4 stars because I feel like it needs a little something extra for the price point. I do recommended but only if you can get it a discount.

    Sharp looking, one feature missing

    I would give this controller an easy five star review if it had one little feature that both the Lunar White and Blue Forza 6 controller have, and that is the textured, rubberized grips on the back. This has the same smooth finish all the other Xbox One controllers have had, so if you've never used the Lunar White or Forza 6 controller, you won't know the difference, but owning both, I can't not use them for this. I have every controller that has been released for the Xbox One (weird collector's thing I guess) and the two Halo controllers are two of the best looking ones. I am not really a Halo fan but again, my weird collector thing kicked in and I had to have them. I wish the grips used on the Lunar White and Forza 6 controllers were the norm moving forward and if these two had them, they would be perfection. Still, if you are a Halo fan, you can't go wrong with either one or even both.

    Got back tonight after buying the controller at my Bestbuy and have been playing through Halo ODST and gotta say I think this controller rocks. I noticed that some of the newer controllers come with better hand grips, too bad this one and the Lock controller does not, but the improved bumpers and the 3.5 headset jack are a real big welcome. As for the design it is so neat with the details being laser etched in, feels neat and the coloring is classic Master Chief and is well worth the money. Getting the Lock controller in the mail from Bestbuy and am looking forward to that too, both of these are the best controllers I have seen to date on this system, well done Microsoft ^^

    The controller is exactly what you would expect it to be, a functional xbox controller. It has the new 3.5mm headphone jack built directly into the controller so there is no need to buy the added adapter for older generation controllers. I'm not sure if the triggers and bumpers are any kind of new design, but the bumpers seem to work better than my other controller that came with my Xbox. I'm a bumper jumper in most games and the original controller i have seemed to not register each time that I would push the L bumper. This controller has a different click to the bumpers and seems to be good at registering each

    A Nice Controller

    Overall I would say this controller is above average. It follows the theme of the Halo Universe. It feels like a normal Microsoft Xbox One controller and not a controller that just has a plastic wrap adhered to it. I find this important as it adds to the comfort level and ease of use. I also found that this seems more sturdy than the controller I received with my Day One Edition Xbox One console. I do wish this controller came with a rechargeable battery given this item's price point, but I do appreciate that it is wireless unlike many third party controllers.

    I had to go with the Master Chief version because Master Chief. Who cares about Spartan Locke? I mean really. This is a nice controller, and like the gold highlights with the d-pad and triggers. Also has new design with built in 3.5mm jack for headphones/headset, but doesn't allow for volume control without the adapter from previous versions. Early on I had some issues with it turning off by itself after the first few days. I replaced the batteries that came included, and haven't had a problem since. Weak batteries included I concluded.

    The Master Chief (and Spartan Locke) controllers are great additions to the themed controller collection. They feature the new(ish) 3.5 mm audio jack, along with awesome customization matching Master Chief's Spartan armour. (or Spartan Locke for the other version). The texturing on the palm rest is subtle but adds to the quality. The triggers are coloured to match Chief's visor, and the whole thing looks great. Plus it comes with a code for Halo 5 that includes a couple of unique skin upgrades for your Spartan.

    For halo fans this is a great purchase, it has the design and color scheme of Master Chief, no explanation needed for those familiar with the series. The design is amazing and stands out from most controller you can currently buy in store. I wish it has the grips on the back like some of the other controller they released recently, but that does not change performance just comfort.

    Huge Halo fan, purchased with the Xbox one Halo Edition. Works great, looks awesome, and updated so you don't have to buy that atrocious adapter. Only gripe I can say I have is battery life, I'm glad I bought a 48 pack of batteries I saw online for cheap before I bought my console, you're going to need them unless you buy the play and charge kits. Otherwise enjoy, great product. Elated to show that both my controllers aren't your standard run of the bunch.

    I love this controller. It of course has the same award winning design as the other xbox one controllers, but that's not the only reason I love it. As a day one owner, my previous controller only allowed for use of the factory headset/microphone, but this controller allows for you to use any headset with a 3.5 mm jack as well. Now wrap all of that in the awesome gene and gold color scheme of Spartan 117, and you have a winner.

    A controller is a controller as far as function goes. But the controller looks awesome in person. The green actually has a kind of sheen to it that doesn't show in the pictures. It also comes with the regular headphone jack that lets you use any headset you want. Only downside is that it doesn't come with the rubberized grips that the Gamestop Lunar White controller has, but it looks so much better it's worth the extra $5.

    I love this. The new version of the xbox controller is a lot better than the old one, as it has a headphone jack and much better bumpers. This controller has a really well done design on it, the orange and green look fantastic, and the laser etched designs really pop. Oh, and the dauntless visor is a really cool looking visor for Halo 5. Overall I rate this 5/5, it is amazing and I would buy it again.

    Cool design, but perhaps not worth the extra money

    When I decided to buy this controller, I was willing to pay the extra money, because of the Halo design. I now realize that while it's a cool and functional controller, it is no different from a regular controller, besides the different color scheme and slightly different texture on parts of the controller. If it were a few dollars cheaper, I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Halo.

    This is the controller the Master Chief deserves

    Microsoft has always made well built controllers, the Xbox One continues this tradition. This controller is for the Halo lover in your family, it's modeled after the Master Chief from Halo 5. In addition to a slick design, you also receive a REQ pack for the game. Ultra rare visor based on John-117 will also be yours in game. If you are a Halo fan and only have one controller make it this one.

    The Controller I've Always Wanted

    Ever since the original Xbox's Master Chief green limited edition came out, I've wanted a legitimate controller that stands up to the awesomeness that is the Master Chief. Finally, after 10 years (we don't talk about the ugly Xbox 360 version), I've gotten what I've always wanted. The textures are cool on it and the controller is solid. You also get a free REQ pack for Halo 5!

    For anyone who has been playing halo since the beginning, they have always wondered what it would be to have an awesome controller based off the chief himself, well when 343 and Microsoft revealed this bad boy, our dreams were fulfilled. Anyone who has been around since day 1. This controller is a hands down, required for you to show off your love for Halo!

    I don't buy many "themed' accessories, but when I saw this I just had to have it. This is an extremely sleek and cool looking controller, 343 did an amazing job when designing this controller. The bronze on the D pad and both triggers make the controller pop. This controller bring out the feeling of playing as the great Master Chief (when playing Halo 5).

    I obviously purchased this since I am a fan of the Master Chief, but I was a little hesitant that the design on the controller may feel weird as I hold it. I have to say I am pleasantly surprised, and the design on the controller does not adversely affect the feel of it. It has an almost satiny feel to it. Great-looking design, and I highly recommend it.

    Microsoft do you realize if you made this controller An Elite version you would have got so many more sales.. The black Elite color is garbage and should have givent Mater Chief an Elite controller.. Its still a great controller but could have been much better with the upgraded Elite treatment. Many Halo fans would have jumped on board as well.

    I feels more solid than the original xbox one controller that comes with the console. Some of the small touches look nice and the quality feels better, buttons don't feel cheap and I like the design only fall back that I was hoping would come with the controller is more grip where the hex pattern is but that is my only con about this controller
