Reviewed: PC Intruder / PC Raider Gamepads

Final Breakdown

Installation:

Installation takes a little work and isn't 100% intuitive, but it's not overly complicated either.

Price:

For $9.99 on the Intruder and $14.99 on the Raider, they're cheap enough not to dent a wallet. Not a bad price for the gamer who doesn't need tons of options.

Drivers:

The two devices use the same driver, and nothing seemed able to go truly wrong with them.

Performance/Features:

It's the basic design found in a lot of pads, with only some D-pad issues to worry about. It would be nice to see something bigger tagged on, like macro assignment, but the turbo switches on the Raider are a nifty touch.

Overall:

If you're looking to get a basic gamepad with no frills, either pad would be a decent choice. Both pads received the same scores because, except for the presence of the turbo switches on the Raider, they are the same product.

Pluses (+)
  • Good Price
  • Sturdy Construction
  • Minuses (-)
  • No frills at all
  • Noisy D-pad
