Muy mala

La compre y súper mala no puedo ni presionar los botones no vale los 3 dólares que pague 😓

No pierdas tu tiempo

Voy hacer honesta el juego es bueno y los jugadores, el único problema y gran problema es el comando del control, quien junta la palanca y los botones en el mismo lado? Ósea vamos a jugar en una telefono o tablet! No en un televisor Por favor solo separen la palanca de giros de los botones. No pude pegarles al contrincante por qué los botones al presionar solo le mueve hacia adelante o atrás ya sea A, B, C o cualquier solo el del puño me respondió y para hacer algún poder hay que hacer muchas vueltas y apretar varios botones no se puede hacer si la palanca y botones están en la misma dirección. Quisiéramos que la palanca estuviera en la izquierda y los botones a la derecha. Que triste y desilusión comprarlo para nada.
