Modern Fix


back to product reviews home Product: Shock 2 Ultra Analog Controller Manufacturer: Thrustmaster Website:

The Game Boy Color is still a great system. Anytime you’re in need for a quick gaming fix away from the house, it’s there. However, the unit seems better for small hands. Enter the Power Handles by Thrustmaster. Not only do you finally have a better handle on the GBC but you get a rechargable battery pack & AC adapter to boot.

The battery pack lasts for only about 12 hours, however it is rechargable. The only gripe here is that you have no idea how much battery life is left in the unit since there is no indicator whatsoever. As for the handles themselves, they are really comfortable for those with big hands, adopting a PlayStation style of control.
