Genius MaxFire Pandora Pro Gamepad Review
Sometimes I find that playing games with a keyboard just does not cut it. Games that require quick action such as platform games or puzzle games don't always work as well using a computer keyboard. Game pads feel much more natural when you are trying to defeat your opponent in a fighting game, or get to the next grueling level on a fast paced puzzle game. There are a variety of game pads, and Benchmark Reviews has tested many of these game pads over the years. Genius has provided Benchmark Reviews the Mini USB Maxfire Pandora Pro. This is a type of game pad that is often overlooked in this segment, a small and portable game pad. With features such as the ability to fold into a small package and turbo buttons, the Pandora Pro promises features from the larger types of game pads, but in a might more portable package.
I tested this gamepad using my desktop machine. I played a variety of Emulated console games such as Super Mario Brothers, Tetris attack, etc. I also used the gamepad in some newer games such as Grand Theft Auto: IV, Dirt 2, and several other games. I evaluated gamepad in the following areas of interest: Performance, Functionality, Construction, Appearance, and Value. Some of these categories have the tendency to be more subjective than others. At Benchmark Reviews, we strive for professionalism and aim to provide the most fair and unbiased reviews as possible.
