The PS4 NACON Revolution Unlimited Pro Controller – A Revolution In Gaming

All console players know one thing – a controller can make or break your gameplay experience. Is your DualShock 4 ghosting? Horrid. Triggers not responding? Awful.

I’ve been a PlayStation fan since the heady days of the PlayStation 2 – Vice City, Final Fantasy, and Resident Evil were my life, and I’ve stuck with the company ever since. I've never once being tempted by the Microsoft console whose name we dare not speak.

These days, I spend most of my time gaming playing Battle Royales including Apex Legends, Fortnite, Hyper Scape, you know the drill. But, of course, Fall Guys has recently entered my repertoire (as it should), along with a brief (albeit unsuccessful) Brawlhalla competitive career. The DualShock controllers have always been fine, but I needed something to start giving me the edge in these games where accuracy and control were key.

That’s where the Revolution Unlimited controller came in.

First Impressions / Opening The Box

Opening the box was an experience. The carry case itself has an air of “wow, this is really some sick tech”, and when you see the controller, that phrase is solidified. As well as a wired option, the Revolution Unlimited controller comes with a USB stick for wireless play, several different weighted cylinders for unlimited (see what I did there) control options, and impressive LED lights.

How It Looks

The sleek black design with different pressure pads makes for a better all-round grip, but the button layout does take some getting used to. The joysticks are not parallel, as they are on the DualShock 4, but that confusion dissipates after a few rounds.

Gone are the primary colours of the shape pad (green triangle, a red circle, a blue cross, and a pink square), replaced with muted grey tones.

How It Feels

My thumbs have never been so comfortable. The elevated joysticks are easy to manipulate, and make a nice change from buying and adding silicone grips to my DualShock 4. It also comes with “innie” and “outtie” thumb pads as per your personal preference – neat!

It is a bit of a workout for your thumbs due to the height of the joysticks (compared to the DualShock 4), so I recommend playing around with the joysticks until you find one that’s right and feels comfortable for you.

It just FEELS good and you FEEL like a better player just holding this thing.

How It Works

Well, like a controller. On performance-enhancing drugs.

Although the layout is different, it’s easy enough to get to grips with. The additions of a “Mute Mic” button on the back (easily pressed with your little or ring finger) joins the Revolution Unlimited controller, along with four back buttons/triggers. You can remap ANY button to these “shortcut” buttons, just by holding down the Profile button and voila. Pretty clever, huh?

If you want to further personalise your settings, feel free to download the PC/MAC companion app, where you can not only adjust the settings of the left and right sticks, but also remap buttons, select four or eight-way movements of the D-Pad, and independently adjust vibration intensity on both of the handgrips.

How It Plays

For this review, I stuck with a tried and true favourite – Apex Legends. This battle royale is where I’m the most comfortable, and more importantly, need the highest performance I can get (because I suck).

Where quick movements and ADS-ing fast are key, how does the Revolution Unlimited Pro Controller hold up in this high-stakes tense genre? Well, for starters, the accuracy is insane. I almost thought I was in danger of being reported as a hacker. I was achieving successive headshots with weapons I never use (the Hemlock), and sniping like a God.

I noticed an uptick in my win-rate during my sessions with this controller, and honestly, I can’t put it down to anything else. I’d had the same ridiculous amount of coffee as always.

If you want a pro experience, this controller has to be your first choice. From the look, to the feel, to the way it performs, it really ticks all my boxes.

Sorry, DualShock 4, the Revolution Unlimited Pro Controller is my new go-to.
