Google Stadia review: Playable, not perfect

We'll say it, Google Stadia works better than we expected. The game-streaming service is capable of transmitting relatively smooth gameplay to a Chromecast Ultra, browser, or Pixel phone, and the experience is (relatively) lag-free. But it comes with a host of caveats. Controllers only work wirelessly with the TV, with a computer or phone, you'll need a cable; Graphics are certainly console competitive, but this won't replace a high-end PC; and it worked on our network, but slower connections may see worse graphics and far more lag. Still, call us impressed, this may be the best attempt at game-streaming we've seen yet.
