UPDATE: I've been heavily gaming with this controller and it's held up so far. No ghosting in the sticks, and the buttons have no sign of wear. Definitely worth the money!
**UPDATE** MAY 2019
-My controller just died after 7 months of use. I didn't even get a full year out of it. Just shut off and never turned back on even with a fresh set of batteries. Smh...
First off, the look and feel is great. The controller has a clean, sleek, minimal design that matches that of the Switch and it's house brand accessories. It plays well with games like Mario Odyssey and Graceful Explosion Machine (the only other Switch games I own and was able to test this out on.) Smash is a different story. The main drawback is with the primary (left) joystick. It just doesn't work well for dedicated players when you need it to. The reason being is that It sticks up far too much from the base of the controller, giving you a very "loose" feel regarding character movement. In other words, it makes directional movements far too sensitive. This might work good for shooters, but who plays FPS on the Switch? Maybe I'm one of the few who've experienced this, but nearly every match I play I get a directional button mishap or mistimed smash because of this controller. If anyone is used to playing Smash w/the GC controller, you will definitely have an adjustment to make with how you play, or just go with a different controller completely.
Another minor complaint is that the controller doesn't feel solid in your hands. Perhaps because of its light weight (which I assume is because there is neither Amiibo or vibration support. i.e. less parts). I feel the bottom side could have a small concave indentation were the tips of your fingers meet the base of the "bars" of the controller. Instead, there are two programmable buttons positioned here, which honestly most people will never use and ends up diminishing the overall feel of the controller in your hands. Width feels great however and from that aspect feels like it was designed for adults. Compared to the Joy-Con controllers in a docking unit, which is still "too small" for me and many other adult gamers. Now, These aren't necessarily deal breakers for me as I intend to use this as my primary Pro Controller for the system going fwd, but for Smash specifically there are some design flaws that will become an ongoing annoyance for non-casual players and perhaps a deal breaker for others.
So why four stars? Well it is AA battery powered, so not rechargeable. Not a huge deal and I kind of like being able to just add batteries instead of waiting for it to charge. But it is an extra expense you have to deal with. Batteries lasted pretty good so far. I ahve about 8 hours of play on it and it still works fine. Also, a point off for no rumble function. Not a huge deal for me but worth mentioning. And finally, it's not red all over. Would have been really cool but it's still decent looking with the black back panel. Overall, very nice controller and I will prob order the zelda one soon.
They don't feel as solid as the Switch pro controller, but they don't feel cheap and plasticky either. They're somewhere in between. The buttons feel good and the triggers feel good too, even if not as smooth as the official pro controller's. The sticks have a wide range of motion but aren't as comfortable to rest your thumbs on for extended periods of time. The programmable back buttons are a plus though, especially for programming moves in Smash.
Overall, a stylish, well-built controller to add to your Switch collection so that you can enjoy games with others.
