Bij Kickass Gaming is een review te vinden van de Microsoft Sidewinder Dual Strike game controller. Dit maffe ding zou de keyboard/muis combinatie moeten vervangen. Hieronder wat indrukken van de controller.
To tell you the truth, this controller actually turned out to be better than I expected it to be. I thought that I wouldn't even be able to play first person shooters with my favorite settings, but I was wrong. This baby can pull off almost everything that my mouse and keyboard can. We're talking inverted mouselook, strafing, and functions such as shooting, crouching, jumping and weapon switching in the palms of my hands. After putting it to the test, I figured out that when it comes to turning around for more than 180º with reasonable sensitivity settings, this controller doesn't even come close to beating my Logitech Mouseman. So performance-wise, not being able to turn around for 180º+ is pretty much the only downside of using the Dual Strike as your weapon in action-packed first person shooters. That might not seem like a big deal now, but when you're in the middle of a big online battle, you will easily beat someone who can't turn around quickly enough to fire back at you.
