To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a fantastic controller. I like everything about this controller, except one thing. the paint on the buttons wore out so fast! I play Rocket League with this thing and I can no longer see which button is "A" and which is "B"
I purchased this because the Razer Sabretooth that I needed to replaced used gummy membrane contacts for the D-pad which had collapsed leaving the down arrow constantly sticking. I used the buyer Q&A and the answer sort-of came, but not with any specificity so hopefully my review answers the next person who may ask this. Yes, the D-pad issue has been resolved in the Wolverine - it uses a very tacticle set of contact switches much like the ABXY buttons. Huge improvement. The only nagging issue I have now is that the only part of this controller that lights up is the RGB strip near the top. On the Sabretooth, the ABXY buttons all lit up, and it had a small display on the bottom between the D-pad controls. On a quick little ask-around, it appears that customization of this controller is non-existent for PC users, so there's no modifying the colors, brightness, or anything else for that matter. In all honesty, I don't mind - the tactile controls are far more important than lighting garnish, however not having the buttons lit is a bit of an annoyance in low-light situations. If you're an X-box user, you can tweak and modify the controller all you want ... just not us PC folk ... kinda lame if you ask me.
The controller itself is in virtually new condition cosmetically. Buttons and switches all work, but the left hand trigger hangs up when fully depressed. More of a design issue than flaw with the company that refurbished the controller as the plastic case is misaligned there. Ergonomically it is identical to all the other high end Xbox style controllers that I have previously used. However where the lower paddles are located are far from convenient compared to the Xbox elite and PowerA versions where the paddles lie naturally right under your finger tips. On this design you literally have to stretch your fingers out to 'find' the paddles, the upper smaller ones are somewhat hard to hit. Especially if you have large hands like I do. Still, software wise, it works flawlessly on my tower, whereas the Xbox elite and powerA both had strange software glitches I spent days trying to remedy. Meaning very bad behavior in 'in game' computer use. Now both sit in a closet gathering dust. They may work perfectly on Xbox, but on computers, forget about it! Whereas the Razor performs like it was meant to. My only slight beef is mine showed up with four shortie gymbals instead of two longs and two shorts. Not a deal breaker, especially for the refurb price I paid. All in all, I am pretty happy with how this controller performs. I do hope in the future Razor redesigns the lower paddles though to mimic the superior ergonomic locations of its competitors.
This is a 5 star controller. Better than the Xbox Elite controller in every way. I gave it 4 stars because Razer needs to make this PC gamer friendly. There NEEDS to be separate driver options so that pc players can map the extra buttons however they want rather than the limitations that console players have. Great controller, I prefer wired anyway, and wire isn't garbage like the one that comes with the Elite Controller. 4 stars because you can't hotkey/key bind the extra buttons.
Although I love my keyboards mechanical, I apparently don’t like my controllers that way.
I personally wasn’t a fan of the dot in the middle of the standard analog stick, I don’t think it adds anymore grip but rather forces you to use it in a weird awkward way..
The build quality is great and the triggers lasted quite a while before it eventually died on me :(
This is inevitable with any controllers eventually and it did well, it has WAY better durability then the Elite Controller V2, but fails to give the traditional Xbox controller feel, feels a little to long in your palms.
The buttons on the back aren’t quite useable for me personally but the top buttons are great, and feel great.
The ABXY are mechanical, it will be very weird when you use it for the first time.
It was a good controller and an interesting concept using mechanical buttons.. but just doesn’t feel right to me.
Pros: Great performance Price is not bad Very tough Has a rubber grip Comes with extra parts Also has a pretty decent case Comes with X,Y,B,A button substitute (M3, M4, M5, M6) Can adjust sensitivity (Idk if this also works for other controllers) Has some buttons to adjust triggers (Idk what's it called 😅) More customization options on the Xbox app (You can download it in Microsoft store and its free ofc) Has some microphone options and a headphone jack included Somewhat has a modern design despite the toughness
Cons: RGB is pretty bad (Only surrounding the Xbox logo) X,Y,B,A buttons feels like they are gonna break if you only use one of the X,Y,B,A buttons for an entire game Case gets pretty dirty easily if not cleaned Feels a little heavy (That's for me, Idk for different people)
Overall this controller might be the best but there are many more options. Good job Razer!
Fantastic control excellent design feels molded to my hands. The extra buttons come I in handy the texture of the controller allows for impressive grip while allowing airflow between fingers and controller. My only dislike is the RGB lights do not use chroma connect as the title might suggest but instead does its own thing
The first one they sent me, the left trigger was completely broken like the plastic was destroyed... I got a replacement, the replacement is fully functional and definitely seems new. I'm happy so far but we'll see how fair this controller will be in a month.
