Whenever I used to see a controller with a price tag of over £100 I used to wondering just how much better they are than the standard controllers that come with your console. Over the last few months I’ve tried a few different ‘high end’ controllers but the one that stood out was the Wolverine.
An elite looking design
From the off you know it’s going to be well made because it’s from Razer; well known for their build quality. Now it depends what type of person you are as to what is the most important feature of a controller but I personally play a lot of online multiplayer shooters - meaning I have a tendency to occasionally get angry...alright I throw my controllers around because I’m salty! But the robustness of the Wolverine certainly stands out for me. It feels strong in your hand and it doesn’t feel like buttons would come flying off if you were to drop your controller
Always room for more triggers
Another important feature for me is having more buttons and pads. I wouldn’t pay double the price if it did the same thing - I want a controller that rivals a keyboard. It’s the only way console players will ever be able to keep up with PC. The Wolverine, like many other controllers has pads added to the back and interchangeable d-pad’s and thumb sticks.
Lightwork that reacts to gameplay
The thing that really makes a difference is being able to adjust how your controls sit, you can manoeuvre them into a position which feels perfectly comfortable for your hands. It’s things like this that can really help on Xbox games and when you think about how quick some of the movements need to be (build fights in Fortnite, wall bouncing in Gears), it seems crazy to not have this option.
Flawless front and back design
Other than the quality and customisation there isn’t really too much more I can think of that takes my gaming to the next level. So that leaves appearance. This controller has a sleek look to it and with the addition of the Chroma RGB lights around the home button, d-pad and on the sound control unit this controller looks pretty sweet.
All the Chroma colours we all love.

There are plenty of great controllers out there but having used the Razer Wolverine for a few weeks I would certainly recommend it to anyone who wants to raise their game. If any streamers out there use this pad, hit us up in the comments and let us know your thoughts.
