Outstanding controller

Reviewed by on

Mirroring the other review here, I was a bit averse to spending the money for this controller, but after playing a couple of hours of Zelda I pulled the trigger.

I was pleasantly surprised upon receiving it! It is very sturdy and just oozes of a quality design. It fits snugly in hand, ( I have averaged sized hands ) and just sits well with the grips slanting diagonally upwards allowing your bottom 3 fingers to sit perfectly. Just well thought out.

It has nice oversized buttons, a good D-pad and the sticks have a nice amount of give. I will say that this will likely become essential for shooters that appear on the Switch, unless for some reason you can come with tiny joysticks and/or motion controls. The triggers and bumpers are fine, nothing amazing but perfectly serviceable.

I also added some thumb stick extensions as I'm used to KontrolFeeks on my PS4. Note also that the PS4 Kontrol Freeks will NOT fit on here as the Switch analogues have a slightly larger head.

Honestly if you are on the fence and have the cash, just go for it. You won't regret it after your 60th hour of Zelda. It also has the added bonus of being supported by Steam now so if you play PC you can kill 2 birds with one stone.

Awesome

This pro controller has amazing lightweight feeling in your hand and it easy to use and set up, highly recommended

A must buy for pro and casual players alike!

The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is a must-have accessorie for every Switch owner.

At first I was hesitant given the high price tag but I’ve never looked back and it’s been worth every cent. I find the Joy Cons a little small and as such they’re not great for extended play sessions.

Meanwhile the pro controller is one of the most comfortable controllers around. It boasts an excellent D-Pad as well as unbeatable battery life. The controller also features NFC support for your Amiibo collection as well as USB-C (rather than older proprietary connections) for charging. My only gripe would be the triggers being too shallow during button presses but that’s a minor nitpick rather than a major problem.

In conclusion, the pro controller is one of the best controllers money can buy and a worthwhile investment for any Switch owner.
