Summary: All around construction feels sturdy enough. The top most button on the joystick doesn't always work proper and the buttons all feel a little flimsy. for the price though you cant really beat it. I am a first time joystick owner and i'd recommend it for folks who may or not get serious into joystick gaming.
Summary: My Logitech Attack 3 just arrived from Amazon and I played around with it for about half an hour. I own a MacBook Pro (5,3) from 2009 and I am running Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I plugged it into a USB slot, fired up a game in DOSBox, and it worked instantly. No drivers or configuration necessary at all. Just instant action. The joystick feels very solid in the hand and has good resistance.
Summary: This joystick is well made but lacks a very important feature, twist-yaw. The base is slightly heavy, spring action feels solid. The button numbers, however, are nearly impossible to read. I'd suggest the Logitech 3D pro if you wanted to stick with this brand.
Summary: The attack 3 joystick is an awesome product for the money. The price is entirely low compared to how well this product works. As a real pilot in training, I have flown some aircraft with joystick style controls, and the Attack 3 joystick has a very realistic feel and tension as compared to the real thing. With a simple movement of the stick, there is a very quick and sharp response in the movement of the aircraft.
Summary: This is a great joystick and it can take a lot of abuse. I use it for flight simulators and as a Handbrake in Live For Speed. I have had it for a few months now and it has never let me down yet. It is easy to set up and to use. Anyone who is looking for something cheap and that will last you a long time should get this!
Summary: I was looking for a joystick to use in BF3, it actually works very well, but does not twist. I missed this fact when I purchased it or I wouldn't have purchased it. That's the reason I've given it 4 stars.
Summary: The Attack 3 is a very good joystick for the price. It's very reliable, it responds quickly, and it works for all the games I tried it on. It's easy to set up and the customization software is both flexible and easy to use. It doesn't have any flashy features like force-feedback, but as basic joysticks go it's one of the best. I can really only think of one flaw: It doesn't have a third (yaw) axis, so you have to control entirely in terms of pitch and roll.
Summary: Hopefully someone sees this (unlike me). The build quality of the Joystick is great, buttons are responsive and feels great in the hands until.... you realize the joystick cannot rotate in the z-direction and you have no rudder control for helicopters and jets. Total buzz kill. Not really a product problem but a marketing problem (this needs to be in the item description) so 2 stars.
