The inclusion of the Sanwa parts ensures the high quality performance of the C2 Arcade Fightstick. The eight directional joystick allows you to perform the motion of your choice with ease, and the sturdy buttons allow you to pick your attacks carefully. There is ample wrist space for maximal comfort. In fact, there is ample space everywhere. The menu lock will ensure that you do not ruin a tournament match by pausing the game by mistake. For example, you do not have to worry about pressing the PlayStation options button.
This is a high quality product. The entire unit feels sturdy and robust, and the weight is good, although it might be too heavy for some. With plenty of space on the top panel, the unit had to be designed bigger, which usually leads to more weight, but it should not be a serious problem. In fact, most would likely see it as an upside, especially for those who like to set an arcade stick on a table instead of on their laps.
The C2 Arcade Fightstick stands out from the very first glance. Its mixture of blue and green are almost unheard of in the realm of arcade sticks. Furthermore, there are interesting graphics that give the controller the nuance that it needs. Finally, the black shade chosen looks elegant and not low caliber, which is impressive because it is easy to make black parts look cheap.
