Very tempted, but it doesn't have a switch to make it 4 and 8-track... which is still needed for all (most) these games. Especially 4-track, I hate trying to turn left and I keep going straight. :mad:

A horrible stick I got one when Circuit City went out of business for 10 bucks. I tried it for game room and the sensitity sucks. I only tried it on Astroids and Yars Revenge and the Namco Museum.

Also the button mapping feels strange to me when playing, couldn't get used to it.
Hopefully Microsoft will some day release their own stick if game room does well.

At least I got the game downloads from it.

Some other reviews on amazon.

yah thanks, i'm glad i got it anyway as they said you can use the board for making your own...i want it the way it was in the arcade...one good spin and it went for eternity.
anyway it may fit the bill for tempest as i can't get past level 15 with the dpad

also most reviews did say that its great for tempest with the spinner
so it's a $17 gamble for me

$17 bucks just for the spinner does not seem worth it to me. I'd rather have one of them $150 arcade joystick boards that has everything on it: Spinner, dial, big arcade buttons, joystick, and so on...

Also check your gamestop I've seen them used there before I don't remember the price but I know it was under 15 because I almost got it during a b2 g1 sale.

That way if it sucks you can just take it back.
