As soon as I plugged in the Cyber Snipa PC Gamepad V2 into the back of my Intel test system, it was reconized and useable right away. I picked four different games to see how well they worked with the gamepad. My standard of City of Villians, Quake 4, and Call of Duty 2.

Features:

  • Improved game control. Speed and accuracy.
  • USB Plug and Play. No drivers needed.
  • Use your game to map 37 available keys.
  • Built in volume control.
  • Detachable non-slip palm rest.

I started first with City of Villians. I ran around being a villian for a day or two. I noticed I had a time out or two on the gamepad. It felt like as if I lifted my finger off the keypad for a second. This only happened when I was running to missions. During the battles I did not have that problem at all.

Quake 4 was up next.

I finished it off with a few hours on CoD 2. 

The only time I had any issues was when I was not playing a FPS game. Since the gamepad is made for FPS most of my gameplay was with those. With non-FPS games, it usually uses more keys than what is on the gamepad so having a keyboad handy was needed.

Overall the gamepad is good at isolating the necessary keys used in most FPS games. The large movement keys are useful for players with large fingers. The side lighting gives the pad a nice glow in the dark. It is also nice to have the option to turn it off when you want to. Having some of the keys colored in grey helped with getting used to the pad in the beginning.

Thanks to Cyber Snipa for sending over this sample!



Pros:

  • Large movement keys
  • Over size wrist rest
  • Side lighting
  • Gray keys help at the beginning
  • ~ console key


Cons:

  • Repeated pauses
  • Alt & N key still are in a bad spot
