GCHT NINTENDO SWITCH CONTROLLER REVIEW FOR PC

So I have been playing with this controller for more than three months, and I have uncovered a few things.

I bought this controller exclusively for PC gaming. The response time is really good! The comfort, along with the contour, is amazing! The weight is just right, and the buttons feel superior in terms of quality.

While the design is certainly impressive, I am not quite impressed with its connectivity. I have had some pairing issues. Sometimes it would connect instantly; other times it would take 10–15 seconds to become available for Steam. (I have other Bluetooth PC controllers, and they don’t act that way.)

Once it is paired, the device works flawlessly. I played a lot of games that require a high level of accuracy and sensitivity, such as Street Fighter V and Mortal Kombat X; this controller has provided an exceptional gameplay experience. The battery life is good, too!

Now, my greatest problem with this controller is that it only works on Steam. Even if you try to add a non-Steam game to Steam, the controller will not recognize it. It also doesn’t work on standalone PC games, so that’s a real bummer.

If you play games mostly on Steam, this is perfect. However, if you are buying it for standalone PC games, look somewhere else.

FINAL SCORE: 6.5 OUT OF 10
