Hori Pokken Tournament Controller

                                                                   Optic

I really like the Design of the new Hori Pokken Controller DX. The Black finish with the white signs look very cool. Unfortunately I recognized a few scratches on the glossy part of the Controller but which are luckily only noticeable when holding the Controller under direct light.

A negative thing I notice is the very bad smell. It smells really like „unhealthy“ chemicals. I thought it would go away after a while, but sadly that was not the case. I can still smell it after 1 Month of usage.

 

                                                            Ergonomic/Buttons 

What I really love about this Gamepad is the feeling in the hand. Its really light compared to a PS4 or Xbox Controller and has a nice ergonomic Design especially when you have  bigger hands like me. 

The Buttons  and the D-Pad also feel really good. The pressure points are a bit harder than on a  PS4 Controller, but still very responsive and good playable.   

In my opinion the Hori Gamepad is a very puristic Controller which suits games like Pokemon(designed for) or SNES,NES games the most.

 

                                                                 Connectivity

The Controller connects via USB to a wide range of systems. I personally tested it with a Raspberry 3B with no problems at all. The system detected the Controller automatically. I didn´t test it with other  systems, but I think it should also function with Window or Mac Pc´s. 

 

                                                                       Conclusion

I can really recommend this Controller because it is relatively cheap but offer a good quality for the price. 

On the other hand you have to give up features like wireless, thumbs, rumble system and  only one type of shoulder triggers instead of two .

But if you play games who not needed this features, then it is one of the best Controller you can buy especially for this price.
