Over bij AGN Hardware staat nu ook een review van de balloze IntelliMouse Explorer muis. Hieronder heb je een stukkie over zijn performance in games. Voor de hele review, klik hier.
There are two types of gamers running lose on the Internet, called the hardcore and the casual gamers. The Hardcore gamers are dedicated to being the best in the group for a game of Quake2, Unreal Tournament or whatever they happen to have in their computer at the time. These hardcore lovers of destruction are going to find the Intellimouse Explorer a little weak for their needs. Because even though the Explorer can handle up to 1500 pictures per second thanks to the IntelliEye, those pictures have to be right under the mouse. So if the hardcore lover of gaming is picking his mouse up off the table on accident, it is not registering his movement. This in the end will mean he will be the one who is shot, rather than doing the shooting. Now I personally think that after plenty of practice with the Intellimouse Explorer in hand, they can get over this current weakness. But practice will take time that they may not want to spend.
The Casual gamer on the other hand will find the Intellimouse Explorer a true provider for their needs. Everything from Role Playing Games to space combat fighting will bring a new level of control thanks to the accuracy of the mouse. I have been using the mouse for a while now and I have to admit that it is the most impressive mouse I have had the pleasure of using. But then again I had myself killed an uncountable number of times in some online Unreal Tournament gaming earlier today.
