- Ergonomic and functional- October 25, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been using the 1st generation of Razer Wolverine, also Microsoft Elite controller series 2. I do like both controllers, but this Razer Wolverine V2 Chroma is my best Xbox controller by far. Honestly, I feel this controller is molded to my hands, the feel is excellent, and the finish is textured for better gripping. Buttons feel smooth with tactile sound, and D-pad is also very smooth and responsive with tactile feedback, which is fantastic. Thumbsticks are interchangeable and stick magnetically, so I swapped them out with shorter sticks included in the box for a better experience. Extra four triggers and two bumpers are remappable via the Razer controller app on Xbox and PC. The controller uses USB-type C. in fact, a wired controller provides a better gaming experience by reducing lagging issues that may occur with wireless models. The extra button below the share button is for audio control. By pressing and holding the audio control button, then press the D-Pad directions up and down to increase and decrease the Xbox volume. Also, doing the same steps but instead pressing the directions left and right will increase and decrease the game and chat volume. Finally, I love the shape design; it is very comfortable and feels high quality in hands. Chroma lighting is definitely my favorite, and Razer is well–known for that.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Quite Good, But Overpriced- November 3, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Razer has done a great job with the Wolverine V2 Chroma wired controller. The controller is lightweight, has a nice texturized rubber over the grips, excellent tactile feedback on all buttons, great trigger locks, interchangeable thumb-sticks, 6 extra programmable buttons, and a killer design that looks amazing thanks to the customizable RGB strips which run down each edge framing the body of the controller. At first the extra 4 programmable buttons on the rear seem awkwardly placed. But once grip is adjusted, all four buttons are reachable and actually quite usable. I would have liked for them to be rubberized, or have more texture - but, surprisingly my fingers don’t slip off of them. Even with small hands, I am able to rest my fingertips nicely on the extra buttons. And, because they require actual pressure to actuate, they don’t get accidentally pressed (like the paddles on the Xbox Elite Controllers often do). Interestingly, the Wolverine has two extra bumper-style buttons (which they call M1 and M2). Because most users must modify their grip to reach the back 4 paddle buttons, left & right triggers must be pulled with the very middle of the pointer fingers - this makes M1 & M2 the only reachable option and therefore almost assuredly used a replacement for the Left & Right bumpers (which can no longer be comfortably reached with trigger fingers). ****See attached pictures for examples of how the controller must be gripped in order to reach all of the extra buttons**** The menu and view buttons have been moved to a higher position which looks good visually, but I find it incredibly difficult to use my left thumb to press the View button. In the new location the thumb has to stretch awkwardly up and over the thumb stick to press View. It is incredibly frustrating and greatly interrupts gameplay (which is otherwise improved by adding so many other customizable buttons within immediate reach - without requiring the player to let go of the thumb-sticks). The Wolverine V2 Chroma is a wired controller that requires the use of a USB-A to USB-C cable. The included cable has plenty of length, but does not have a breakaway section that would protect your Xbox or Computer if the cable is pulled or tripped on. For me this is a HUGE downside. Wired controllers should ALWAYS feature a breakaway cable. I am also disappointed that the Wolverine does not come with a case like both version 1 and version 2 of the Xbox Elite Controller. The Wolverine comes with two extra thumb-sticks that will certainly get lost because there is no case to store them in. This is an expensive controller. It would be nice to be able to protect it while being carried in a backpack. The Wolverine V2 Chroma is a great controller, but until the price drops by a decent margin, I just can’t recommend it over the Xbox Elite 2. For just an additional $30, the Elite V2 has wireless Bluetooth functionality, better paddle & button layout, 6 thumbstick options, two d-pad options, a rechargeable battery, and a carrying case that holds all accessories and doubles as a battery charger.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Definite upgrade from run-of-the-mill controllers- October 28, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Finding a controller that fits you and works for your game can be a difficult match to make. Forutnately Razer has this amazing controller for Xbox Series X|S users that features some pro-level controls as well as RGB lighting effects. It’s definitely a step up in the controller world and an upgrade from a standard Xbox controller. Unboxing: The controller comes in a Razer-branded box with an image of the controller on the front. I like that this is provided so that you are sure you are getting your controller of choice for the correct gaming system. It’s a very noticeable package and I believe it would stick out on a retail shelf. The back of the box calls out the main features of the controller like the 6 additional multi-function buttons, interchangeable thumb stick caps, mechanical-tactile action buttons and D-pad, hair trigger mode with trigger stop switches, powered by Razer Chroma RGB, and improved ergonomics. When you open the box, you will find the controller sitting inside some foam. There are replacement thumb stick caps resting above the controller. There is a small black box compartment that holds the connector cable, Razer stickers, and a user guide. First Impressions: When I took the controller out of the box, I was immediately struck by the weight of the controller. It felt similar to my standard Xbox controller, but a little heavier. I liked this about it. I plugged in the controller using the provided cable (USB-C to USB-A) and my Xbox immediately powered up and the controller lit up. The RGB effect is definitely a plus in my book. I like adding fun lighting effects to anything in my workspace and the lights on the controller are bright and colorful. Another thing I noticed right off the bat was the mechanical ‘click’ you get when you press buttons. It’s almost like using a mechanical keyboard, but in controller form. Gameplay: One of my favorite games to play is Red Dead Redemption 2. It’s a game I know really well and I know how a standard controller feels while playing it. So, I started it up and played for a bit to get a feel for the Razer controller. Overall, I was very impressed with the reaction timing of the controls and how good the tactile mechanical buttons felt in comparison to the standard softer buttons on an Xbox controller. The only thing that ended up throwing me for a loop was the position of the menu buttons. They aren't in the exact middle of the controller and that ended up hindering me a little bit since some of the gameplay of RDR2 deals with recalling the menu quite a bit. Overall: I think this controller is a great alternative to the traditional Xbox controller. It looks great, feels awesome in the hands and is incredibly responsive. I really love the trigger paddles on the back even though I haven't used them much yet. They feel solid and don’t feel as if they will just fall off like some pro-level triggers do.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- excellent controller- November 2, 2021
Quite centrally to some other reviews, I prefer the placement of the back buttons on this one. I owned the elite 2 controller, and occasionally hit the back buttons by accident, can't say I ever did with this one, yet. Also, the thumbstick doesn't drift, as a premium controller shouldn't. My elite 2 controller drifted its soul, I returned it. As of today they haven't solved that issue.. but that's off topic. My only complaint is the placement of view and menu buttons. Let's just say it's ridiculous; can't reach without moving hand off the grip, having big hands don't help either. I had to map them to the assignable buttons on the top for games that require these buttons often. For this reason, I took off one star. I have been winning a lot more FPS games with this one. Take fortnite for example, the game requires aiming, agility and speed like many FPS games do, on top of that the game requires you to build. I don't have to take my hands off the thumbsticks now.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing controller definitely woth the price- October 6, 2021
This will be my 3rd or 4th different razer controller for Xbox and I’ve loved all of them but I’d have to say this is the best even tho it is more expensive then the previous ones it’s great looks well made extremely nice gaveling extra buttons on back and on top of controller if you need a controller especially if your competitive even if your not I would recommend this I wanted to put 4.5 stars but could only do 4 or 5 the only reason I did not give it a 5 is I wish they would make a wireless version if it’s possible but none the less 100% must buy just keep in mind I believe it only works on Xbox series s and series x.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
