As sexy as the standard Dreamcast controller is, it just doesn't seem work on the same level for 2D fighting games like Capcom vs SNK. Don't get me wrong, for games like Power Sword and Soul Calibur it's perfect and for most other genres I would rather have a Dreamcast controller. But after some gameplay on different pads it's tough to go from breaking fools with a Saturn slim six button to a Dreamcast controller with only 4.
So to deal with this issue I have been looking around in local game shops in NY State for solution.
This weekend I hit PAY-DIRT...
Notice all the non-English writing on the box? Yeah I was afraid that it wouldn't work in my American Dreamcast. I had never tried to use any Japanese hardware... But it worked AWESOME.
I really enjoyed using this controller with Capcom VS SNK. Cammy kicked much computer controller player's ass.
How kick ass is this controller? Very. It's got built in rumble and everything.
In any case it also came with some cards detailing the special moves for all the Capcom characters. Kanji? I can't read it! NOOOOOOO!!!!! The art is still cool.
Overall this is a pretty cool collectible and I am glad I picked it up.
