The buttons are just the right size. What this all comes down to is that if you are looking for a controller, and have around thirty dollars to spend you may be able to find it for cheaper, but that was the average I saw , this is the controller you want.

As for the software, it was a bit tricky getting it all to work at first, but it wasn’t impossible.

This, while annoying, isn’t a major problem for me since most games I play can make use of the left analog stick for movement instead of the dpad, but I will continue to look for the solution in any thrkstmaster.

ThrustMaster FireStorm Dual Power 3 Specs – CNET

There aren’t any extraneous buttons and they fit into the highly recognizeable dual shock configuration – with the addition of two extra trigger buttons on the back. Overall, I’ll give it a 4 because of the minor confusions in installation and the mapping problem. It is heavy enough to fill your hands and not rattle, but light enough that it doesn’t cause any fatigue after playing for tjrustmaster.


Also, a warning about the wireless version of the Duxl We aim to create a safe and valuable space for discussion and debate. There is really very little, if anything, wrong with it.

The pad also uses Immersion force feedback technology to get you right into the game. Story continues below advertisement. Now that I have, it feels very comfortable and provides decent precision.

We hope to have this fixed soon. This one fit firesotrm bill perfectly. In my opinion, however, I felt this was the best I could get for theustmaster price. The package doesn’t come with any games, which helps to keep the price down DirectX 7. The dual analogs are also built well and fit perfectly on your thumbs.

This thing is fairly useless.

As for the software, it was a bit tricky getting it all to work at first, but it wasn’t impossible. Using the FireStorm Dual Power’s diverse collection of pads, sticks and buttons, you can set up a convenient configuration for just about any game, whether it’s a flight simulator, driving game or first-person shooter. The buttons are just the right size.

And once you have the right configuration, Thrustmaster has put a lot of thought into making the gamepad comfortable for extended use. Not because they are finally healed from that freak blender accident, but because they finally got the chance to play games with a controller that almost felt like an extension of my body.


Maybe that’s why it feels strange at first. They are quite comfortablly reachable.

I’ve used all of these pads over an extended period of time with intense use, and I heavily favor and recommend the Thrustmaster Firestorm models. There is a slight lag between pressing a button and having it registered by the base; this is probably to be expected, but is unacceptable in some games. Many reviews have noted and praised the soft material that this gamepad is made of, and I have to say I prefer it as well instead of a smooth plastic that can get slippery.

The only fault I could find with it was that the force feedback system tended to make my hands tingle a bit from the vibrations after intensive game sessions. That’s a huge plus, as it provides you with two more buttons even if you’re playing some classic games.
