Come and see that there really is more than one
way in which size matters.
The first thing one notices about the Pelican Trick Controller is its design
- decidedly different from many Xbox controllers out there today. This
is in virtually every respect the same as the Pelican X-Wing Controller,
but with a combo button on the side (aptly placed). This button is easily
accessible with the left trigger finger, instead of being placed in the
middle of the controller.
As soon as the controller is in your hands, you notice the other major
difference with Pelican's offering: the size. This controller is significantly
smaller than any other. The size makes this the perfect controller for
The control sticks feel great and are very responsive, as are the triggers.
The control buttons have some nice "give" to them, helping to prevent thumb
blisters from hours of gaming. Unfortunately, the black and white buttons
are too far away to be depressed without moving the hand.
The D-pad isn't a 4 way cross, but a circular pad, giving a full range
of mobility. I would have rather had a traditionally shaped D-pad.
Overall, this is a good buy if you are looking for a smaller controller
than most on the market. At $25 (approximately) this an easily affordable
way to get your little brother or sister in on the game.
