5 out of 5 eggsDramatic improvement over stock controllers

Pros: The new thumb stick design is outstanding. They are now texturized and completely eliminate thumb slide. I like it better then any third party add on. The transforming D-Pad should be on all controllers. It makes a huge difference on accuracy. This alone is a solid reason to buy a new style controller. Lastly the Tomb Raider design is not just aesthetic. It provides an additional layer of grip in exactly the right spots to eliminate palm slide.

Cons: Haven't been able to find a single flaw with the controller as of yet.

Other Thoughts: I'm a huge fan of the Xbox 360 controller design. This is my first experience with the redesigned controller and I have to say, I'm impressed! The transforming D-pad really helps with games such as Halo 4 when selecting supply drops. The new thumb stick design allows for a much better grip, thumb slip is a thing of the past. They Also have a nice firm spring back to center feel that is slightly Stronger then my halo reach controller. I've also noticed that the shoulder buttons have a much more reactive feel. The Tomb Raider scheme is a really sharp. Instead of just painting the controller they textured it in a way that gives your hands a better grip. The bandage design on the left has the heaviest texture with the scratches on the right being just enough to eliminate palm slip. I've had no issues with squeaking or clicking sounds that a few reviewers have noted. The controller just has a tight sturdy feel that I hope doesn't loosen up over time.

Overall I have to say that even with the release of the next gen consoles looming I'm impressed that Microsoft is continuing to improve their existing products.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing looking controler

Pros: Everything on it is awesome. By holding this controller you can tell that the designers of this thing spend a ton of time on it. Almost everything on this controller is textured, from the band-aid on the left to the thumb prints on the right. This thing is awesome looking.
Being its a licensed xbox controller, it has everything the standard controllers have, great feedback, new D-pad twist design, loud clicks, solid construction, ect.

Cons: It says "TOMB RAIDER A survivor is born. Adventurers hardware" by the battery pack enclosure. Not a big deal, My personal preference is that it be clean..might remove the bottom of the enclosure and put on a standard black cover.
All the pretty textures will someday wear off, and the tiny cuts throughout it will eventually get filled with grime.

Other Thoughts: I'll probably be only using this for my PC via the wireless adapter.
Also, I purchased this thing purely on aesthetics (I'm also a bit of a special edition controller collector).
