Does what it needs to, with some minor issues
Reviewed in the United States on January 3, 2021
Overall? Worth the purchase. But your mileage may vary. Short version? Would much rather have it than not.
+ MUCH more comfortable for extended play sessions.
+ prevents accidental back-touchplate contact extremely well.
+ while not an intended design feature, also adds some much-needed shock protection against drops.
- Somewhat cheaply constructed. Plastic is not sturdy.
- plastic seam is not well beveled, and while not painful, is noticeable and somewhat distracting
- Causes my thumb to occasionally hit the left analog stick while using the DPAD. Obviously this is a killer for platformers that require a lot of precision.
And while it's not something that's been an issue so far, it is easy to accidentally depress the release buttons, which could potentially be an issue.
