This was a very good game pad, and is compatible with all the games which i have bought. It is very easy to use, and you can programme it to do different things on the particular games. it cost me £30 and was well worth every penny. there are loads of buttons, which are very useful on the latest games as they have so many options that you need to be able to do quickly. It is also possible to program the gamepad to do certain moves on some games, and this is a good extra but I think 90% of people will never use it. If you are a serious gamer then this is for you, you pay for what you get, top quality. ... Read the complete review

This is a great gamepad, it feels good, looks good and has all the neccesary buttons to make it suitable for any game. It can be daisy chained for multiplayer gaming, It is very easy to install and comes with microsofts sidewinder profile activator so you can set it up for all your favourite games and know for sure what button is going to do what. It is a solid unit and has survived all of my frustrations at not being able to beat my brother at fifa 2000, a nice budget pad. ... Read the complete review

So good it’s venomous – The MS Sidewinder Just like me, Microsoft joysticks just keep on coming. And just like me, they’ve been coming for quite a while now. In fact the first MS Joystick and joypads came out in the summer of 1996. That’s when they were heralded as the dawning of a new age in controllers for the PC – good enough to rival those of the well-established consoles. And to MS’s credit, their range of joysticks and pads has served to act as prototype to many-a-competitor’s newer makes and models. (How many black PC pads and pads have you seen since 1996! They were all beige before that.) ... Read the complete review

The Sidewinder, A great pad - (couldn't think of a witty title, suggestions would be great!!!!) I have owned a Sidewinder a sidewinder gamepad since last year. In all that time it has proved to me why it is such an excellent pad. On with the review..... Features ****** This is a fairly standard gamepad - this particular model doesn't include Tilting technology. However it does offer a gameport on the back of the pad, effectively allowing you to daisy chain several Sidewinder pads together. Enabling you to have some excellent 4 player games, this is an excellent feature. Buttons ****** It has an 8 way ... Read the complete review

I got my Sidewinder Pad with my PC. I didnt think much of it at the time, but when I managed to get a few emulators woring on my PC, this joypad did the works! It is the best joypad to use for any arcade beat-em-up, puzzle-game, racing-game, shoot-em-up...... In short - if you play emulated games, this Joypad is like a gift from above! You really should buy it before they are gone forever - Microsoft have stopped making them - and replaced it with that nasty silver Sidewinder Pro beast.. This pad has a D-pad, Two shoulder buttons, that fit nicely in your hands, 6 main buttons, which are situated at a perfect distance from your thumb, AND, a start, ... Read the complete review
