As a person who enjoys fighting games. I have always been wanting to grab an arcade fighting stick for some specific titles, and if you are part of the people who enjoy fighting games. Then you might know about the ridiculous prices most of them have. Sure,  you could still find some at a cheap price, but most of them would have a really cheap quality build that wouldn’t last long in the hands of non casual gamers. Anyways, after a lot of messing my inputs with my current 360 controller I decided to give a cheap fighting stick a chance, and I was quite surprised with the results.

The back of the box gives you pretty detailed instruction in case something goes wrong along the way.

The Mayflash arcade fighting stick can be found for $35, and it does the same job as any fighting stick that cost over $80. It claims to be universal and to work with the Gamecube, the PC, the PS2, the PS3, the Wii, the Wii U and the Xbox 360. Sadly, I won’t be able to test it on anything besides the PC since I don’t own any of those other consoles. From the first glance, you can see a total of 12 buttons on the configuration of 1 to 8 as the main buttons, 9 and 10 as start and select and lastly Auto and Clear in which I personally never use. It’s all black and reaching at the end of the wiring, there is a splitter that makes two exits, one with a PS2 port and one USB port.

The mayflash universal fighting stick is decently big enough for you to rest your wrists on it (jay!).

On my first try on testing the fighting stick, I noticed the left input on the stick was not working correctly. So I went for a quick Internet search to see if I was the only one who had this issue, but it turns out that I was not the first person. It seems the cables for the buttons, and stick sometimes gets unplugged off because of the vehicle’s vibration while is in transit. This can easily be solved by removing all six screws under the fighting stick which gives you access to the cables which all you have to do is plug the loose cable back in. It would be nice if Mayflash could put some glue to prevent the cable from disconnecting on their way to be delivered…As most people are not comfortable with opening their hardwares and fix the issue themselves.

The red mark on the top was the culprit of my stick not working correctly, after plugging it back in I solved the problem.

After getting that issue fixed the Arcade stick was working flawlessly. As for my experience while playing with the Mayflash arcade fighting stick, the buttons felt nice to press. Funny enough, I was expecting the buttons to feel cheap, but instead they felt nice to press. As for the stick, it felt loose while moving it around but that isn’t a big deal for me since it still pretty responsive whenever I tried any difficult moves. It also weights enough not to worry about accidentally moving or lifting the fighting stick while playing a game.

tgg grade 4.5 out of 5

Verdict: 4.5/5
If you need an arcade stick for arcade or fighting games and your wallet isn’t doing so good, then look no further than the Mayflash arcade fighting stick. It will fit your needs and don’t have to spend much for it either.
