This one is the best controller. Everybody complains about its size, but believe me that it is the most comfortable controller that I have used.
It's pretty stupid that some people just see it and say that it's huge and very uncomfortable without having using it !
You have to play Halo 4 hours in a row and after that, you wouldn't like to use a little controller again. Even my 10 year old brother had the same experience.

This thing is a monster. The controls are awkward and it doesn't feel right. I bought the other controller which is smaller and the buttons are placed better. I try not to use this big monster controller. It makes playing games difficult.

Excellent controller, once you get used to it!, November 22, 2002
Reviewer: supafunkyj from Rochester, NY
I was a little skeptical at first, and I wasn't sure I would like the Xbox controller. After a few days of getting used to it, I loved the feel of it. The buttons and joysticks are well placed so that it feels natural to use. Controllers are supposed to be designed for comfort and ease of use, and the people at Microsoft did a great job. For all of the games I have played, the controllers buttons/joysticks/triggers have been well utilised and the controls do not feel awkward. For anyone who likes to play with their friends, I would reccomend also getting a second controller, I didn't think I would use mine that much at first, but now i use it a ton.

the controller., November 6, 2002
This controller is the best. Why? Well for big hand people you will love this controller. For me this controller feels very comfortable and for me it seems like all the buttons are just perfect. Anywayz, i would reccomend this controller, if you have big hands. Though you might find something wrong with this controller. It makes your hands sweat like crazy. But no big deal for me. So i hope you buy or try this controller you'll be gald you did.

This controller is perfect the bottons are spaced and that is important for fighting games and other games that need to have an accurate button punching.The weight is perfect, and the size of the controller is kind of big but that leaves more space for the buttons!It is very easy to learn and remeber the buttons and the analog stick is pretty good as well.Sometimes the buttons don't respond but that is pretty rare because that barly happens to me....
Extremely Comfortable and Realistic, November 3, 2002
Reviewer: A gamer from Northern CA United States
I have heard a lot of people complain about the size of this controller. I would say for my hands the size is perfect! For those who are used to the PS2 controller, this will take some getting used to, but is amazing to use. The buttons are easy to reach and the built-in rumble pack is great.
Let's talk a little more about the rumble pack...I really enjoy the feel of the pack, especially on Munch's Odyssey. There are several different uses of the rumble pack in this game (and others) that are incredible. For example, there are certain sections in the game where you have to use a crane to move items. The sound and the vibration in the rumble pack really seem like you are opperating a crane...there are hums and buzzes in the controller that mimic a true crane response.
Overall, this is a great buy! There are other controllers out there a little cheaper that are XBox endorsed like the PowerPad, but that controller is horrible. The response is really bad and I have even had problems with the buttons not responding correctly. I would say spend the extra [money] for this controller...it's worth it! Hope this helps you guys...good luck!

I don't see what the 2 and 3 stars is about! I love this controller! Like someone said the PS controllers are too small and N64's controllers are just wak! I would agree that the gamecube controller is confortable but not more confortable then the XBOX' Controller. It might be too big for kid under about 10 or 11. I would reccomend this controller to everyone!
