NYKO Raven Review - JTM Games

I was so excited when I found and purchased the NYKO Raven “Alternate” controller for the PS3. It had the same control and button layout and feel as the Xbox 360 controller.

With all these features, the NYKO Raven controller sounds like a dream come true for PS3 owners right?

It's all just a matter of opinion and taste. I prefer the feel, dpad, size and layout of the DS3, but I do prefer the triggers and analogue sticks of the xbox pad.

I have two Raven's and have not noticed much of any dead zone on the sticks, nor have I had any problem with FPS games. Not even in Resistance: Fall of Man. I haven't had any problems with unresponsive buttons either. Mine also let you switch R1 to R2 and L1 to L2 with an A/B switch which is handy if you want to shoot with your triggers in KZ3. He also talks about the sticks not moving naturally? What the hell?

He doesn't mention this so maybe he bought an older version of the controller? Or a used one that was beat up? I'm not sure why he whines about the USB dongle either as it has never caused me any trouble.

Now my Power A PS3 alt controller seems to have some pretty bad deadzones but the Raven has been really nice.

I did mention that. Didn't really help with the horrible deadzones so it wasn't of much use to me.

"In addition to that, there’s a switch that toggles/switches L1 and R1 functionalities to the triggers themselves, adding to that Xbox 360 controller feel.
