"This is more of a flight simulator than a joystick, it is built to last that's for sure. There are two pieces to the EX2. One is the actual joystick itself, which feels and looks like the real thing. The other part is a throttle, again it just feels like it would be at home in the cockpit of any modern fighter. This is what is known as a HOTAS specification (Hands On Throttle And Stick) enabling full hands on control. The rumble feedback element is excellent; you actually feel the guns firing and the shells hitting you. Most of the buttons are programmable, there are a number of dummy ones, but that just adds to the realism. This is an officially licensed XBOX 360® product, so you know it will be compatible with your console.
It would have been nice to have it a wireless device, as it is quite expensive, but the cable is long enough. The two units connect to each other via a removable cable, which is great if you only want to use the joystick. The only problem I have found (apart from the lack of decent XBOX 360® flight simulation games) is where to mount the thing…
As for playability the EX2 feels good and solid in your hand, and with the suction cups added on the base, it doesn't move around when you are trying to avoid that tail end Charlie. There is also an expansion port for XBOX LIVE® connectivity (new version connector only).
To be honest I can't really fault the EX2 FLIGHTSTICK. It's tough, comes in a matt black colour that gives it a sexy look, and all the controls are easy to reach. It really brings any flight simulation game to life and for the price it isn't bad…If you want to feel like a real pilot, then go for the EX2 because it is the cheapest HOTAS unit out there for the XBOX 360 and the build quality is excellent." thegamereviews.com
