But what the Ouya controller has in style, it lacks in execution... The controller offers acceptable performance, but still has room for improvement in later iterations.Wired60Ouya Game ConsoleAnyone following the Ouya’s development will have heard rumors that its controller is not quite up to par, and I won’t deny that it doesn’t feel as good as the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 controllers.Joystiq70Ouya reviewThe controller mimics the Xbox layout to a tee. Four face buttons, two asymmetrical analog sticks, two shoulder buttons, two triggers, a D-pad and multifunctional home button. It's comfortable to use, though the rounded triggers take some getting used to.AllThingsD60Ouya Is a Compact Bundle of Fun, but Not a Be-AllThe controller is less wonderful. It looks nearly identical to an Xbox controller, but more angular — and it feels cheaper. And while Ouya’s makers like to point out that the center section of the controller acts as a touchpad, I never felt the need to use this option.PC Mag40OuyaThe controller sounds nice on paper, but it's sadly close to being outright junk.Engadget60OUYA review (founding backer edition)Overall the controller is usable but it's far from great. Sticky buttons and gummy analog sticks are the sorts of things you wouldn't even tolerate on a cheap, third-party controller and so it's disappointing to find them here on the official unit.EngadgetNot RatedThe final OUYA retail console is ready, we go handOur first-blush impressions of the gamepad, unpaired from the console, are mostly positive. The controller has a good heft to it, doesn't feel cheap and the buttons / analog sticks are appropriately clicky and maneuverable.Kotaku60Ouya: The Kotaku ReviewThe Ouya lets you at least play with a controller. As if—ha ha—these games on the Ouya weren't nearly all still optimized for touch controls and not the system's so-so dual-analog controller. Good luck figuring out how to pause half of them.The Guardian60Ouya console reviewThe controller? It needs work. ... Its shoulder buttons, triggers and two analogue sticks are better, and the button-sticking issues reported on early developer units appear to have been solved, but it's still middling overall.TechHive60Review: Ouya is the little gaming console that couThe controller isn’t bad enough to suck all the fun out of your games, but it doesn’t stand up well next to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 controllers, let alone those of the coming Xbox One and PS4.Mashable60OUYA: Fun for Hackers, But Not Ready for RetailThe OUYA controller combines many different ideas, some of which work better than others.Eurogamer60Ouya reviewThe Ouya pad's design certainly isn't unappealing, and it's comfortable to use. There are some minor niggles to contend with, however.T360Ouya reviewLike the system, it’s a fusion of sand-blasted aluminium and plastic. The layout is clearly inspired by the Xbox 360 controller, but the build quality is slightly underwhelming.TechRadar50Ouya reviewThe most unfortunate part of the Ouya experience is easily the controller. Like the system itself, it's not bad to look at, but after using it for a little while, the flaws become obvious.IGNNot RatedOuya Android Game Console Hands-onThe shoulder buttons and triggers, although oddly square, also fit nicely within reach and have a distinctive "click" when depressed. The company has designed the two metallic faceplates to snap off, providing access to its two AA batteries and giving players a way to personalize their controller.TechRadarNot RatedHands on: Ouya reviewThe twin sticks and four-button layout were immediately familiar. The sticks were grippy and accurate, and the buttons felt like the kind of quality jobs you'd find on any first-party console controller.TrustedReviews50Ouya review - Controller, Software and Setup ReadWhile the console itself is attractive and well-made, we can't say the same for the controller. In fact, it's one of the weakest parts of the Ouya.Android Police50Ouya Official Launch Version Review: No.The overall device feels solid, but cheap. If you’ve ever used one of those budget Mad Catz knockoff controllers before, that’s basically what this one is like. The buttons work, though, and the controller is totally usable.Digital Trends70OUYA REVIEWThere is a notable issue with controller lag. It isn’t a constant problem, but it happens enough ... In general, the controller is comfortable in your hands and pairing is easy.Destructoid50The Ouya is a nice idea ... at leastThings fall apart at a basic fundamental level, however -- the controller. Reports of lag and a cheap, sticky feel to the controls were a major part of reviews of early "beta" units, and while the Ouya team has gone to lengths to improve these problems, they're still pretty damn noticeable.

It is laggy by a second or even less but it really ruins the experience. Also for some reason the controller shuts down mid game every 30 minutes or so.
