Razer Hydra

PC Magazine
18 September 2011
  • Conclusion: The Razer Hydra is trying to fill a market space sorely lacking in PC gaming—motion controls. However, with only one game currently supporting this device natively, is the Hydra really something gamers want to invest in?
  • Pros: Magnetic motion sensing base station never skips a beat. Makes motion gaming available to PC users. Comes bundled with Portal 2. Controllers feel great in-hand. Buttons and joysticks on controllers definitely lend this to hardcore gamers. Configuration software available for download. Over 125 compatible titles.
  • Cons: Portal 2 is the only game that supports the Hydra natively. Wired controllers will limit your range of motion.

Razer Hydra Review

maximum pc
12 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Traditionally, motion control has been the domain of the consoles. Between the Wii, Xbox Kinect, and the PlayStation Move, the tech has developed a reputation as an arm-wagging, casual experience—emblematic of the overall shift away from the kind of deep, demanding, rewarding gameplay that the PC as a platform is known for.
  • Pros: Ergonomic design; sensitive motion control; plenty of buttons; excellent Portal 2 support.
  • Cons: Lacking in software support; lots o’ cables; button layout is cramped when used as a gamepad.

Praxis-Test: Razer Hydra (PC-Bewegungssteuerung)

CHIP Online
28 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Razers Bewegungssteuerung Hydra ist an sich eine wirklich gute Idee. Grundsätzlich funktioniert das Konzept wunderbar. In Kombination mit Portal 2 geht die Rechnung sogar voll auf. Nach einigen Minuten Übung gehen alle wichtigen Bewegungen gut von der Hand, nach einigen Stunden hat man die Steuerung dann vollkommen intus und manövriert seine Figur elegant durch die Levels.
  • Pros: Gelungenes Konzept, Schickes Design, Präzise Steuerung...
  • Cons: ... nur ohne Zeitdruck, Nur kabelgebunden, Recht hoher Preis
