Its really not much of an improvement over the Dualshock Ps3 Controller...

Summary: I purchased the Street Fighter 4 Fightpad, for Capcom's latest scam, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. It worked, but even on the first day i played, I noticed technical issues. The controller kept on inputting my commands as down for what ever reason, and the diagonals were not as responsive. Why the hell a fightpad SPECIFICALLY made for fighting games would be wireless, is beyond me. I feel as if the controller could have been spared these troubles if wired.
Summary: This fightpad is a great alternative to those who lack a fightstick and won't be bothered with using a dualshock to play fighters. It's very responsive and looks very nice. Overall it's a fantastic controller... until it stops working correctly. This is the second one of these SFIV fightpads I buy. The first one lasted me around 2 months until something happened and it was as if the d-pad only went to the right, and there was no control whatsoever.
Summary: This is coming from an old fan of the series. And in this game one thing stands true. Your mileage will vary. Pros: The 3D graphics and backgrounds are a nice touch since it is on new generation consoles, and the animated cut scenes are pretty good too. Two of the new characters I can stand, El Fuerte and Crimson Viper. And they keep the classic movements intact. Cons: Some characters, I'm looking at you Rufus, are not balanced very well in my opinion.
Summary: I played this game just recently and completed most of it all by myself and I have to say it's making me regret purchasing the game because of the excessive use of special move by the computer on the difficulties. Another flaw I found is if you perform a ultra combo it has a chance to be countered by these computer opponents that shouldn't be able to like an example would be I would be playing as sakura and in the middle of my ultra someone that would have the shuryuken...
Summary: The fightpad is alot better than the regular PS3 controller for SFIV. Unfortunately the pad isn't very well made and it broke after only about 2 months. Now I have to spend more money sending this back to the manufacturer getting it repaired. Not very happy since it wasn't a cheap controller and it only lasted 2 months.
Summary: First I am going to start with is the bad attributes to the video game and then I will end the game with the good and the conclusion. The worst thing about this game is online play because the chat capabilities are terrible and the voice chat is also terrible. Also if you are playing someone online who does the same move over and over and you finally beat them and they disconnect then that irritates you because you do not get the rank points you deserved.
Summary: So, I was doing alright with my DS3, but not reaching my full potenital in SFIV. So I decided to check out the FightPad, and I admit I was initially impressed. The six-button face makes combos much easier to pull off, the floating D-pad makes Specials, Supers and Ultras much easier to execute, and the clicky shoulder buttons are much more precise than the triggers on the DS3. My performance improved sharply (though not phenominally). I paid retail (40 bones).
Summary: Alright I'm going to give it to you straight. I rented this game with the highest of expectations only to be let down by a mediocre fighting game. First of all, after the first 10 minutes of playing the game I realized that this game is just a suped up version of the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis titles with a few new characters and moves added in. The only difference is they are on new systems.
Summary: I was one of the many people who could not wait for the release of this game. I went out this morning and picked up my copy eager with anticipation. When I turned the game on I was blown away by the art direction, and overall look. It really is a beautiful game. In fact I would put it up there with the new Prince of Persia as one of the most visually stunning games in recent memory. However, that's where it all stopped for me.
