Ever since my PS 3 broke down over two years ago, I've been reduced to watching Youtube videos of Resident Evil 5 gameplay. I ended up getting Resident Evil 5 on the PC after all because I enjoyed it a lot on the PS 3. However, gameplay was slow because I had a weak Athlon 3000 XP processor chip. My vid card finally gave out prompting me to buy a new comp, one that has a superior processor plus vid card.
I did not want to play Resident Evil 5 using a keyboard though you had precise aiming with the mouse. So I went to my nearest Target and picked this up for $24.99 plus tax.
I never really played Xbox in my life. It was all Nintendo and Sony for me. So the Rock candy controller is pretty much my first experience dealing with the Xbox 360, and the controller works very well for Resident Evil 5 . As you can tell it is also PC-USB compatible. The control layout is easy to use and is almost similar to the PS 3 controller albeit a bit bulkier.
The controls I used for Resident Evil 5 were type D controls. I won't go into it much except you can look it up online. I had to get used to the game toggling between shoot and knifing since both buttons were close to each other. Also, I am not familiar with the Xbox controls of A and B (look at the pic). I'm used to Super Nintendo controls so if that Rock Candy controller was a Nintendo controller I kept mistaking A for B and vice versa. Every time a command prompt came out in the game to press B, I kept pressing A and the game punished me for pressing the wrong button. For an odd reason, I do fine with X and Y. It took me a while to get used to the controls, but this is all user preference and the controller design is just fine.
All I have to say is that my impression on this controller is excellent. Most people dread when they see 3rd party controllers but Rock Candy gets the job done. If you are on a budget, this controller works and feel just fine. Its very comfortable in your hands, and the buttons and controls feel sturdy. It comes with rumble and the controller colors vary (I got green as you can tell), and the case is translucent so you can see the circuitry very easily.
My only gripe was that the box it came with was very cumbersome to remove. I had to kill it with a knife and not knife the controller at the same time. I was already having my live RE 5 experience by then.
Can't go wrong this controller, if you need to save money, Rock Candy is the way to go. You may find the controller cheaper in other stores, and if you do, good for you!
