It's no HRAP 3 or VFHG but it's one of the better Hori stick out there in the UK.,
This review is from: Hori Arcade Fighting Stick (PS3) (Accessory)
So is this stick any good? The answer is yes. The quality is good and it is one of the better Hori sticks that are freely available in the UK. The lever is responsive (if a little loose for my tastes) as are the buttons. The components are all Hori made, and is capable of withstanding a fair amount of abuse.
My game play in titles such as Virtua Fighter 5 and Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection improved significantly using this stick. Unlike the Sixaxis it is wired yet you have lots of cable to sit back and relax with and the Stick is sold and heavy. There are rubber pads at the base to avoid slippage (in the heat of the fight) on sold surfaces.
There are better sticks out there that use real arcade parts such as the HRAP 3 (Hori Real Arcade Pro 3) Which uses a Sanwa (Japanese arcade parts manufacturer) Stick and interchangeable Hori buttons and the Virtua Fighter High Grade stick which uses a Sanwa stick and Sanwa buttons. unfortunately for us Brits these incredible sticks are not freely available in the UK (check import stores or import sites) and are quite expensive.
The Hori Fighting Stick 3 is a cheap and sold alternative and comes highly recommended.
