On the fence? Here’s just one of the 12,000 5-star reviews…
I’m going to start by saying that while I appreciate many of the design elements of the switch — I struggle with the joy-cons. They feel so minute in my hands, and overall I just find them uncomfortable and difficult to use. The joy-cons are what keep me from loving the switch.
I pre-ordered this controller the second I saw it — and I have no remorse. It is exactly what I was expecting. As for their size and the fact they make playing the switch as a handheld even wider — this is a controller that presents itself to be like a full-size console controller — how else could it do that without making the switch wider? With that said — the feel of this thing is like an Xbox controller only split in two.
So depending on what your expectations are this is so far the best solution for people like me — people who want the feel of a full-size console controller when playing the switch as a handheld. I use the Pro controller when the switch is docked, and this is my new portable set-up.
Yes, you can still charge the switch in it’s dock with these attached. No, there’s no rumble. This controller doesn’t have a battery, so you don’t need to charge it. But it’s responsive and utterly natural feeling.
