Not as pictured and a detailed sensitivity review.
While I did recieve a gold replica controller in a clamshell packaging, designed almost exactly like the original (the plug on the cord is grey, unlike the original gold controller) I gotta ask that Lukie Games, update the image of the product here.
The controller in the image looks like a blank form copy though they actually have a big ugly printed TTX Tech logo on the front of them (underneath where the Nintendo emblem should be).
Everything about this controller is TIGHT. The buttons are great and the joystick is nice and tight which is good but I had to use FORCE to plug it into my console, almost needed pliers to unplug it which is bad.
However to give a detailed analysis on the controversial sensitivity of these replicas I'll tell you this.
I tested it on 3 types of games, a platformer (Mario 64), a racing game (Star wars racer) and a flight simulator (rogue squadron)
The platformer sensitivity is definitely something you can get used to. A little hard to sneak around at first but I think after some use and wear it gets better. 4/5 on ease of use.
For a racing game its a bit more tricky, its something you'll personally have to adjust to yourself. 3/5 on this.
And finally for the flight sim... Just give up hope. The x and y axis of this controller is so sensitive to the point that its almost impossible to line up any accurate shots and this leads me to fear how bad this thing is on a first person shooter. 1/5 on these 2 genres.
Get this if you want an extra controller that is obviously 3rd party and want to play games that dont rely to heavily on sensitivity.
