[Hardware review] Enhanced Wireless Controller – Princess Zelda Edition from Power A

Now your playing with Power A

Having already reviewed the Enhanced Wireless Controller from Power A and found no differences technically between the aforementioned version and this one, I would advise you to head here to read all about the competence of this product. Instead, what I’d like to talk about today is just how beautiful this specific version is. It’s essentially accessory porn. But you know what, don’t let me try and paint a picture with words, instead let’s take a look at some high quality pictures of this most grandiose gaming peripheral.

It must have spikes inside it’s DNA

Having spent a fair amount of time putting this stunning specimen through its paces, I can say that it is identical in every way aside from appearance to the aforementioned product linked above.

The problems I had with the weight of the unit is still apparent, it really does feel a little light. The buttons also click and make a lot of noise. Playing Mortal Kombat 11, I legitimately believed I would wake Mumtendo , who was sleeping in the room directly above. I also, at one point thought the controller might just fall apart in my hand, luckily it didn’t. And let me just clarify, this is an issue entirely with the amount of noise it makes, not in any way the build quality, which is superb.

The positives still outweigh the negatives however. The programmable button is simply put a wonderful thing. Whilst playing Steamworld Quest, I simply programmed the left button to A and played mostly one handed. Quality of Life touches like this shouldn’t be taken for granted.

Overall, this is better than the last model I tried, simply because it’s the most beautiful controller I’ve ever had the pleasure to hold. Power A have delivered a product that’s aesthetic will be hard to top.

Pros

  • Just look at it
  • Cheaper than the official Nintendo product
  • Custom buttons
  • Comes with batteries

Cons

  • No HD rumble
  • A little bit light weight
  • Buttons felt a little ‘loose’

My impressions of the Enhanced Wireless Controller from Power A are almost the same as they were last time out. However, the sheer beauty of the design is worth another half point alone.
