Kontrol Freek FPS CQC Signature Edition

The new accessory attachments from Kontrol Freek give us a game change up in design and comfort. The Kontrol Freek FPS Freek CQC Signature Edition is designed for first person shooters, bringing that control and precision to close up and personal gaming. So Kontrol Freek sent over their latest baby the Kontrol Freek FPS CQC Signature Edition.

I am glad they did, I had not had time to take a look at their newest offerings since the original Kontrol Freek. Which I did always like, but the original always felt a little alien to me…being so much more raised up from the original controller, they gave them a lot of height. These new ones, Kontrol Freek FPS CQC Signature Edition on the other hand feel much more natural for lack of better terms and hug the original thumb stick well and are only slightly more raised.

The design gives these thumb controller accessories a smaller foot print and actually are more comfortable and feel much more part of the controller than the original design from Kontrol Freek.

Rather than being notched inward, the control surfaces are raised a bit and have a bit of a lip around the parameter. With a laser etched logo on the control surfaces it feels good under the thumb. I like this newer design, much more than the raised bumps on the other types.

The raised surfaces feel very comfortable. In many a hectic battles it felt like my precision level was actually raised ever so slightly. The main thing for me was that these actually do make the controller so much more comfortable and provided more grip. That lip around the heads especially made sure my thumb did not slip off during some made crazy action during game play.

I tested this out on Several Call of Duty titles including Black Ops, also Ghost recon and even my old favorites I still play Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and 2. Even Sleeping Dogs was cool to play with these. Not to be limited I also went ahead and tried it out on games such as The Amazing Spiderman and I have to say, I felt more control even here….it was…shall I say it? Amazing. To think such a simple design could be so awesome. Best of all they play for both teams…. Ummm that sounds so wrong. But it’s so right. You can connect these to either an Xbox 360 controller or a PS3 controller.

In the end, they are a nice budget priced accessory that compliment game play, especially if you are a long marathon gamer. And for this review I took several days to play the hell out of several games on both systems to get a feel. The Kontrol Freek FPS CQC Signature Edition will be available as of August 21st 2012.

Have fun, play games.
