Conclusion:

It feels good as a long time console gamer to get a controller back in my hands. It would be hard for any gamepad to match the precision and accuracy of a mouse and keyboard, but the Saitek Cyborg Rumble gets about as close as you can get. It gives you that nostalgic feel no matter what system you came from, and helps the transition from console to PC.

The Cyborg Rumble proved to be a great and very innovative gamepad. It dethroned the Microsoft Xbox 360 PC controller in nearly all categories. It demonstrated very precise handling and smooth effortless control in many scenarios. The “Cyborg” ability to swap the location of the left controls is fantastic. The only downside to that feature is the loss of the left analog button when swapped into the Xbox 360 layout, but a possible driver fix might solve that problem. I really enjoyed using Precision Mode; this made sniping my enemies smooth and easy. The Saitek profiler included works very well and is easily configured. The FPS button really cuts down on configuring most new releases, but keep in mind that it’s not perfect. The Cyborg is slightly bulky when compared to the Xbox 360 PC, this could be a positive for those whith large hands, but the Cyborg also has a short five-foot cable that can cause problems for those of us who don’t game at a desk. The rumble forces felt great and added a much needed dimension to Combat Flight Simulator 3 during flight and dog fightining. It’s very refreshing to have a product that is completely compatible with Windows XP and Vista (both 32 and 64 bit), and including them all in one disc along with the software is a huge plus. The Cyborg Rumble is a very cool device and an extremely unique gamepad; it will undoubtedly transform your gaming into an incredible interactive experience.
