I bought this controller so I can get that retro feel when playing my SNES games on my PC. I was very impressed on how close this controller is to the original; same size, same feel outside a few minor things. The buttons respond very well and feel pretty durable. Everything is great except for the D-pad. It's poorly constructed and causes problems when pushing certain directions. For example, when playing Castlevania IV, moving your character to the right is very challenging because the down button also gets pushed causing the character to stop moving and crouch. This can be very frustrating especially in fighting games when sensitive combinations are a must have. I ended up scraping the stock D-pad and replaced it with an original SNES D-pad from one of my old controllers. I must say, after doing so, it made a world of difference. Now it plays like the real thing.I would give this product 5 stars but the D-pad that comes with it really impedes game play with a lot of games. I would recommend this only if you plan on playing games that only utilize just the four buttons and none of the in between-ers or if you plan on replacing the D-pad.
