Review title of MichaelVery pleased
I got an Xbox for Christmas in 2001, and remember distinctly playing Halo: CE for the first time with the original “Duke.” It is one of my fondest video game memories, and holding the new Hyperkin Duke makes me very happy. To be clear, there’s no debate that the modern Xbox One controller is better than the Duke in basically every way, so if you’re looking for the best controller for your money go buy an Elite. If you were there in 2001, however, or ever lugged an original Xbox, 4 Dukes, and a CRT to a friend’s house for a Halo LAN party, well, this new Duke is probably going to put a smile on your face. It certainly has mine.
Review title of JustinBest controller ever! Yes it’s a bold statement I know.
Okay these other reviews are dumb. Are people just that entitled or what? Yes it’s unfortunate that the shipment got delayed but calm down and be patient. The controller is absolutely amazing. Blast from the past and well worth the $70 to me. For future reference for future reviewers please review and judge a product on its own merits and not because it was late. Bottom line I love this controller and hope they mass produce more.

Brings nostalgia and has great function. The re-inclusion of the black and white buttons adds a new element of playing newer games. (Sidenote: People need to rate the product it's self; not the lack of availability/shipping. If you want to complain about shipping or availability; call Customer Support)

Review title of matthewGreat Nostalgic Controller
Perfect At first since I didn't own an Xbox one the controller wouldn't work So I had to Manually install the XB1 Controller drivers for my PC to recognize it
Review title of AUSTINAn actual review
I played the original Xbox with the Duke back in the day, and this is exactly the same controller. (received mine 05/08/18 from Gamestop) So quit with low review scores because you don't have yours yet. Grow up and learn some patience! I will warn you that it DOES feel a bit awkward to go back to this design. It is quite large! This was total nostalgia for me playing original Xbox games through back-compat. So keep that in mind! This controller isn't for everyone! It was made as a collector item for people who want the original controller from the original Xbox. The construction feels quality, and the buttons feel really good when pressed. The bumpers feel good to press, but are a bit awkward to reach. This really is best used for original games. I would recommend this for people with nostalgia for the original Xbox - but probably not for most other people (it's a big controller!). Hope this is a bit more of a helpful review!
Review title of DanielThe Duke is finally back!!!
I always loved the old duke controller for 2 reasons. No 1, I've got big hands so it fits really well and no. 2 the right analog stick is convex instead of concave like no other controller I've ever seen Xbox come out with. It takes my aiming accuracy on fps' to a whole new level. The bumpers took a little getting used to at first but after a couple days the controller felt like I had never played with anything else. Awesome product, thanks Hyperkin and Microsoft. I've drooled over this thing coming out for months now and I should have purchased 2 of them. Great job guys.
Review title of VelvetCHEERIOAn old mans dream
This controller is GREAT , especially if you had the original. SO MUCH FLASHBACK using this of memories of ``01 when it came out.
Review title of KevyWhat an excellent controller!
It says it ships 5/4, but my order still says pending as well. :( Edit: Updated from 3 stars to 5 stars because it shipped now. I was just being a big baby.
Review title of BenFavorite controller of all time!
Awesome controller. Now I will actually play my Xbox one. This is an exact replica of the original duke controller. Feels great and super accurate.
