Brook Vivid Controller Review $39.99
Overall, Brook took what players want in a controller such as outstanding battery life, advanced vibration features, comfortability and more.
Brook is here with the Vivid Controller for the Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS and PC. We at Rectify Gaming were provided a review sample of this controller and hours of gameplay later I am here to share my experience.
Let’s talk about the unique features the Vivid Controller has to offer. The following qualities that are advertised with this controller is console wake-up, 6-axis gyro sensors, turbo, macros, vibration, and improved aiming efficiency. The Brook Vivid Controller comes in only two different colors, Sunshine Yellow and Aqua Blue which is the one we received.
Just from looking at the controller it’s very clean, the color combination makes it really stand out. As you see there looks to be more buttons than what you’re used to seeing from a Nintendo Switch Pro controller and that they are laid a little bit different when it came to the home, select and capture buttons.
The video games that I played using this controller was Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokemon Violet, Animal Crossing, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 3 which are all Nintendo Switch titles. When playing these games one thing that caught my attention right away was the rumble feature the Brook Vivid Controller brings. The rumble stood out to me more than your regular Nintendo Switch Pro Controller which I personally like in controllers to give me a good feel of the game especially in Super Smash Bros.
What’s great about the vibration is that you can tune it down to however you like, are you someone who likes little to no rumble? There is an option for that, but if you’re someone like me who would like to use the rumble up to the max there’s also that choice for you.
What makes this controller unique is the size of it. There are many gamers that have trouble with your standard controller due to their hand size. This one by Brook is perfect for someone who has smaller hands or it’s even perfect for a casual gaming experience.
Speaking more on size, I like to compare this controller to the Intec Pro Mini 2 Xbox Controller. The reason being was that it was meant for those who couldn’t handle the large Duke controller for the Original Xbox and I was one of those younger kids back in the day who used the Intec Pro Mini at the times because it felt more comfortable. And that is exactly what I view this Vivid Controller from Brook, it may not be for everyone but it can cater to the younger audience.
You don’t normally see smaller controllers on the market these days as they all seem to be standard size.
The battery life is something that is a positive for the Brook Vivid Controller as it lasts 10-12 hours and I can say this is a fact from how much I’ve used it this far. When it came to the Turbo and the paddles on the back I didn’t really have any use for them unless they’re for a particular game such as a First-Person-Shooter title.
Lastly, the Brook Vivid Controllers come with a phone mount if you do choose to play mobile which is a great bonus so you don’t have to go out and buy one yourself.
Overall, Brook took what players want in a controller such as outstanding battery life, advanced vibration features, comfortability and most importantly making it affordable. I love the fact its available to use for Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS and Android. What I would have liked to see is the option to use it on Xbox or even PlayStation consoles even though it looks like the Switch was in mind for the design of this controller, but the more options the better.
Would I recommend getting this controller? Yes I would especially if you exclusively want to use it for the Nintendo Switch.
