This controller is far more comfortable than the other controllers of the time, with a very curved shape and a shape at the back to rest your unused fingers, it allows you to play for far longer periods of time than the previous Master System controller. Which is nice, as you can use this controller on your Master System also, albeit for obvious reasons only 2 of the buttons will work. Hell it'll even work on your Atari 2600 or 7800! I wouldn't reccomend throwing out your Atari controllers and Master System controllers to make way for this, but it makes for a nice alternative.

I find the cable is a little too short, meaning you either have to pull the console out or just stay closer to the console when playing. They did release controller cable extensions, but these are rare and expensive, you are far better off just using a third-party controller with a longer cable if length is an issue for you.

My only other issue is the A, B and C buttons. While they are very comfortable and all easy to access, they can be very easy to get stuck in as you probably will find yourself holding them down for long periods of time in games such as Super Monaco GP. I now have to MASH my finger into the B button on my controller for the Megadrive to pick up I tapped it.

Of course, if you need a replacement controller for one you've already got, or you only have third-party controllers for you Megadrive, pick one of these up. It's always good to have the original.

The control pad arrived promptly, is in extremely good condition and of course it works ! It also has a longer lead than the original pad, so we can now sit on the sofa to play instead of the floor. We are considering buying another pad at this price, marvellous
