No, I've used it with non-Steam games like Dragon Age Inquisition just fine.

Or are you saying that you refuse to have Steam installed? In that case, I suppose that there are so few games left over that would benefit from the SC that it would be ruined for you, yes.

Ugliest controller I own by far, agreed!

(Not sure what that has to do with how functional a pad it is, though... it definitely beats out my 360 and DS4 pads in games like Dark Souls and Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, while also being good for some mousey-keyboardy games like Grim Dawn.)

Appears to be oos

I have Steam installed, but the negatives this controller has over a 360/ONE controller is not worth it

Ok price but I was really let down by this controller. Feels a bit cheap, but its "ok"

Could you share the actual negatives you've experienced, then, please? It would certainly be more useful than sharing misinformation like "Don't recommend, only works with steam".

If you're referring to the using the left thumbpad as a D-pad, then absolutely, even the 360 controller has a better D-pad. Both Xbox pads are also better for people with smaller hands (as they're targeted to be suitable for both children and adults, I expect). And the battery life on the SC isn't even two months of regular use - I easily get three or four out of my 360 pad on the same AAs (while my DS4 battery can be measured in days rather than months! )

Indeed, if someone only had enough money to buy one pad, or wasn't really into gaming very much, then I'd recommend either Xbox pad over the SC. The Xbox pads both work just fine with any 'pad' games, without any need (or, indeed, real option) for any improvement or customisation (£100 Elite controller notwithstanding!).

But for people serious about gaming, the SC is a superior [second!] controller - if you don't give up on it! I didn't think anything would supplant the Xbox pad for my Dark Souls gaming, but the SC has slowly, slowly wormed its way up to become my go-to pad for most PC games now (although I still prefer an Xbox pad for games like Rise of the Tomb Raider, and I'm still forced to use my DS4 on console). And just this week I've been trying out the gyro on Cemu to emulate Wii U motion control, with great results.

It just takes a little effort to get started...

I don't even own one, I had researched it as it looked like a nice controller but what people are saying it isn't THAT worth it, sure it is very nice and such but it's jist NOT for me

So you "don't recommend" based on 1) never having touched one and 2) thinking (and sharing) things about it that aren't true... gotcha.

Your comments are excellent examples of the prejudice referred to that article to which I linked - which I fully recommend checking out, by the way. Or you could just not read it and then tell people you don't recommend it because it's written in French.

I'm not on about the look i just think it would take a lot of getting used to and it only has one analogue stick can't see this being better then an Xbox pad but each to there own I suppose buddy

Why should I buy a piece of hardware and use it and never get my money back? Hell if it goes down to around £15 I'll get one for the hell of it

It certainly does take a little time, but if you're only a casual gamer, then I do agree, it's not worth it. (Those big circles on it are like little trackpads, by the way, so you get a lot of sensitive, precise analogue control, and the haptics provide feedback. There are also two "paddles" on the handles which work absolutely brilliantly - I miss them when I use my other pads!)

Err... did you quote the wrong person there? You're welcome to buy or not buy whatever you want. (Although if you buy through Amazon, then you can use it and then return it if you don't like it.)

That's got nothing to do with my corrections to your comments. Indeed, you still haven't shared with us why you "recommend" against it. You have four comments on this deal: one lie and three off-topics that effectively say nothing. Do you have something pertinent to share with us? Please try to make it true this time.

Having been a mouse and keyboard player since Quake 2 came out I tried playing FPS games on Xbox and couldn't get used to it at all. I got one of these a few weeks ago and played through borderlands twice and now onto borderlands 2. Sure I'd be better if I was sitting at my pc but I'm not able to do that so this still allows me to play.

I did hum and haw about it after reading reviews but ultimately you'll only know one way whether it works for you.
