edition logo controllers often turn out to be a disappointment. Many
companies are not ashamed to slap a logo on a cheap controller and let the
license do the selling for them. Happily this is not the case with the NBA
Control Pad Pro from Mad Catz. This is one well-built controller that can
withstand many extended play sessions and still remain very responsive.
The Control Pad Pro feels comfortable in your hands (normal-sized hands that is
- you don't need Shaq-sized hands for a good grip here) and features rubber
grips that help keep the controller in your sweaty palms during those
double-overtime games. The sticks also feature rubber grips that help you
cut through the opposition with a precision touch.
The controllers are available for every NBA team, and come in each team's
official colors and emblazoned with each team's logos. The logos are not
stickers slapped onto a controller, but are a part of the controller itself and
are encased in the same impact-resistant polycarbonate shell as the entire
controller. Yep, you can drop this controller and otherwise abuse it and
it will still look great.
If you're an NBA fan and looking for a new controller for your Xbox or PS2,
you can't go wrong with the NBA Control Pad Pro. Heck, even if you're not
the biggest basketball fan in the neighborhood you should still get one to make
your NBA fan friends jealous...
This controller is as good as they come, and looks stylish too.
