USB Workshop heeft een review in elkaar gedraaid van de Gravis Xterminator Dual Control pretpook. Hieronder heb je wat info over het ding, incl screenie. De hele review vind je hier.
The Xterminator is no ordinary joystick, in terms of design. Right-handed gamers will benefit the most out of this controller. This is because the right hand can be on the joystick, while the left hand can rest near the proportional direction pad. The joystick is not adjustable according to hand size, but will probably fit most users' hands. However, children or anyone with small hands might find it a bit awkward to maneuver. It is also very comfortable, mainly due to a contoured joystick that acts as a hand rest. This is ideal for long hours of gaming. The joystick has 4 buttons attached to it, allowing quick access for aiming/shooting. There are also 5 buttons located to the left of the joystick. Plus, there is a precision throttle switch, perfect for changing speed with ease and an 8-way POV switch for changing views.
To top it off, there is a proportional D-pad where your left thumb would be placed, making it convenient to master two maneuvers simultaneously. The joystick has a very loose feel instead of a stiff feel, allowing sudden, precise movements without excessive force on the stick. The buttons have a slight click, which will probably disallow the ability for rapid fire. All the buttons, the 8-way POV switch, the joystick, and proportional D-pad can be programmed with the Gravis Xperience software. You can program up to 49 functions, customize cheat codes and action sequences. The Xterminator is ideal for flight simulators, but it can also be used for driving, action and adventure games. This joystick can also be configured for every individual game. There are already presets for popular games such as Mechwarrior 3, Forsaken, and Half Life.
