So if you're in the market for an old wireless PS3 controller that fits well in your hands, this isn't a bad option. I would definitely try to find one that's new, since it's cheap materials show their age pretty fast.
Below you will find my original review of this controller focussing on the the ergonomics of the controller, and not the performance. Now I have tested this controller out in an actual game, let me expand.
This controller is unacceptable as far as performance is concerned. The analogs sticks are not calibrated at all, to make matters worse, there is a position on the left analog stick that when pressed in the upper-left position does not register at all.
I tested this with Tomb Raider Underworld since it has a sensitive analog camera. With the Dual Shock, I barely press to the left, for example, and the camera starts slowly moving... press it slightly more and the camera moves a little faster, press it more, faster still, etc. With the Shadow Controller, I press the analog stick a little and... nothing. Press it a little more... still nothing. Press it little more and then camera starts moving, a little more and the camera shoots at full speed. It feels more like a digital stick than an analog stick. And there is WAY too much play in the stick before ANYTHING at all registers.
It's junk and unusable. Below you will see that I actually liked the feel of the controller, but it is not very useful when it comes time to play an actual game. If I didn't glue the Real Triggers on, I would be sending this product back ASAP. Don't buy this.
I just received this controller and haven't had much time to play games with it. So I'm writing this review mostly on the ergonomics and feel of the controller. I'll write an update after a few weeks of playtime.
My motivation of buying this controller in the first place was the absolute terrible ergonomics of the Dual Shock controller. While design and ergonomics have advanced significantly in the past 15 years, the Dual Shock controller has not been updated since 1994, 15 years ago. Sure, there have been a few buttons added, but the shape of the controller is the same.
The Dual Shock controller has been notorious for terrible ergonomics for adult hands. Even adults with smaller hands tend to complain after a few hours, but adults with larger hands have been completely left out. Sony addressed these complaints originally with the "Boomerang" controller that was going to be released with the PS3, but quickly fell back to the PS2 controller right before launch due to a lawsuit revolving around their use of the rumble technology.
From what I can gather, the Shadow controller is about as good as you can get today. Sony doesn't allow third parties much leeway when designing third party peripherals, and forces designs to closely resemble the Dual Shock design. Ever wondered why ALL PS3 controllers look the same?
DreamGear was given a little more room to maneuver with the Shadow Controller. Their inspiration was obviously the XBox 360 controller. And that is what you can expect. Holding the Shadow Controller in my hands feels exactly like a 360 controller. It's very very close to the exact ergonomic feel of the 360 controller. Which is a step in the right direction, but in my opinion, still isn't the best design for an adult. The new 360 controller, unfortunately, moved away from the larger design of the original "Duke" controller of the XBox in order to make it more child friendly and closer to its closest competitor, the Dual Shock.
So the Shadow Controller is as good as it gets for now on the PS3. And while this still isn't the dream adult controller with new ergonomic insight applied to the design, it is rather good. The "skin" on the controller feels like that neat rubber skin on the PS3 controllers that you have to buy separately. It just feels so good to touch. The handles themselves have an extra thicker rubber with grip grooves for those sweaty hand frantic gaming sessions. Wouldn't want to lose your grip. The analog sticks are tight enough, probably equivalent to the Dual Shock. I'd prefer them to offer a little more resistance, but they are fine. It looks nice, and feels like a solid product, sturdy construction. It doesn't feel like DreamGear was taking any shortcuts here, the controller makes me feel that the company believes in this product and is proud of it. It's nice.
Heard of the "RealTriggers" for the Dual Shock? This product will go a long way in making your Dual Shock controller much easier to handle and improves the ergonomics significantly. If you don't have them, buy them. And, I'm happy to report, they work fine with the Shadow Controller too. They don't fit quite as tight, but they do snap nicely in place. I added a little super glue to make the addition permanent; I saw no reason to remove them once they are in place.
Get the Shadow Controller, the Real Triggers, and the Super Glue and you will have yourself the best controller currently available for the PS3. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars in that I am still holding out hope that someone comes along and designs the perfect controller for larger adult hands. And if I gave the Shadow Controller 5 stars, then what would I give that future product that hopefully advances adult ergonomic controller design in the right direction?
For whatever reason, my controller started vibrating without any input. I tried to reset the controller, but it continued to vibrate. I even let the batter completely wear down for a good week and still, when I charged it back up, it started vibrating again.
Normally, I wouldn't worry about it since this type of issue should be covered under a warranty. However, as soon as I contacted customer service at DreamGear, I was played like a fiddle.
Not only do they not stand behind their products, but the inner-most workings of this thing must be quite sub-par for it to just start vibrating for no reason and THEN not be able to remedy it.
In summary, the controller design is nice. However, whats the point of a controller if it doesn't work and if the manufacturer doesn't support their products. DreamGear has failed in my eyes and I hope no one else makes the mistake of buying their less-than-worthless products.
