Razer Onza Tournament Edition

Mice, Peripherals


The Onza was put through its paces with a number of games of different genres to see how well it played out. The games tested were:

Street Fighter 2 HD

The D-Pad works fairly respectably with this style of game, though it is certainly not a replacement for a proper arcade style controller. The buttons on the D-Pad are also raised a little high, making the standard ‘Down-to-forward’ style moves a little difficult on occasion to slide from one button to the next. Using the thumbsticks worked perfectly well, if less than ideal for purists.

Dragon Age 2

The slower-paced third-person style worked pretty well for the most part. In particular, increasing the tension on the right thumbstick with third person games allows a slightly improved control over the camera.

Crysis 2

Fast-paced FPS games are really the bread and butter of the hardcore gamer and definitely where Razer has targeted their efforts for the Onza. The adjustable tension thumbsticks work particularly well, allowing for fine-tuning the sort of response you expect from the controller. The Hyperesponse buttons also work well, with the lower profile making it easy to move from one to the next as needed. The programmable buttons really come into their own with games where speed is of the essence. Remapping functionality provided by the ABXY buttons, such as reloading or weapon switching, allows you to keep your thumbs on the sticks while keeping core functionality at your fingertips.
