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 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 miguelA blast from the past!!

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 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.
Review title of Jen'Valzina Accaliaha throwback to the past!
hurry up and get more in stock i want to buy three more!!
Review title of AnthonyA crying shame all the costs went to that LED screen
I'm actually appalled. Black one had a sticky d-pad out of box and deadzone issues within a month. 1st green one had a stuck start button. Returned for 2nd green one that had analog click issues and sticky d-pad, replaced for 3rd that had a B button that didn't press in all the way, replaced for the 4th which has deadzone and left click issues. All have had the triggers ghost inputs, either a shoddy right or left depending on controller, and every right trigger, *all* of them produces a squeak when pressing it on a slight angle that pushes it to the right, which is a rather natural holding angle. Most bumpers have been sticky, and I've fixed a few issues by opening up my black and 4th green; the buttons aren't held into place, it relies on the inside build shape, kinda like a shape sorting toy for toddlers, and the analog sticks use low quality rubber bands that wear out and must be replaced. I give up. I love the *oldschool* duke, but this isn't that duke. Get a different controller.
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.
