Summary: Bought joystick mainly to fly jets in BF3. Unit is well-built and feels good to use but requires time to set up because software support is lacking. Must be prepared to manually configure all buttons for each game since it does not come with any predefined profiles that work out of the box. Ok...it does come with one profile: GRID (I mean who drives a car with a joystick???
Pros: Good Grip, Solid construction
Cons: Software lacks predefined profiles for games
Summary: I bought this with the intent to use with BF3, but there are conflicts with this joystick and the belkin game controller that I am using, so i am unable to use it at the moment. Would probably work fine otherwise.
Summary: In the genre of first person shooters (FPS), Ground Pounders from Castle Wolfenstien to Modern Warfare 2 have been the mainstays of game publishers.That's all good and fine but I need to FLY!I've been hooked from the time I first dropped two quarters into the Star Wars Arcade Game back in the 80s. Two quarters was double the going rate of games back then and I chunked them like they were going out of style.
Summary: I bought this joystick looking for something that could tolerate my hours of flight simming. It worked for the first few months, but then started to lose its calibration. It also became INSANELY sensitive to movement input. Fortunately, I had an extended warranty for it. The second one that I got now has the same problem, and the movement in the Y-Axis is no longer smooth- I feel a small "click" about half way through pulling it back. All in all, not a bad stick.
Summary: EDIT (4/3/2013) - The review below was written SEVEN years ago and is likely not applicable today! Back then, I was a college student for whom this joystick was an extravagant purchase for his slow Windows XP laptop. I was also admittedly immature at the time, as I now shudder when reading the last line of my review today. Anyway, my point is that the review below was applicable back in 2006 and likely does not apply today.
