As per the title, if you’re already looking at this device, you know what it can do.
The good news is, it plays games fantastically and I’m blown away that I can play games like Fallout 4 with mods at 60fps on a handheld device. This is the future and I be damned if it’s not good :)
I don't recommend you purchase the device expecting play the latest most demanding games without compromise but if like me you're happy a gen or so behind and looking to clear some titles from the backlog, you are going to be blown away !!
The controller inputs are solid. Really nice feel to the buttons, D-Pad and the sticks feel high quality (basically knocks spots off the likes of the Switch Joy-Cons and feel more akin to the Xbox / PS sticks).
Why the 4 stars, what do I dislike?
Ughhh the device can be a bit frustrating. The build quality is not great (I have wonky loose power button), the keyboard sometimes has a mind of its own but gets the job done and the most annoying thing of all is the fact that the controller if the device sleeps, doesn’t wake with it. This results in either having to constantly hibernate the device and or restart it each time you want to play.
Screen quality is good on the whole, very little light leak but just could be better.
The device / controller rumble is annoying and far from immersive as they claim. It's more like a mosquito than a rumble and I find it highly annoying so try to disable it in game wherever possible.
And that’s it.
The Pro’s far outweigh the cons for me personally but your mileage may vary. I am not disappointed with my purchase, I absolutely love the device with how niche, weird and powerful it is. As a general indication of what I can do / what I have been playing without issue:
Fallout 4, Skyrim (enhanced edition), Prey, Far Cry 5 and the more recently released Outer Worlds. All have worked great when you find their sweet spot and 60fps low to medium settings is not out of the question.
Emulation wise I have been playing Metroid Prime and F-Zero GX at X2 native resolution and they run full speed with no issues.
I genuinely believe that with some solid driver updates this device would be perfect but for now I have a few little irritations hence the 4 stars.
If like me handheld PC gaming has always been a dream, this is your jump off point. I have owned several niche devices in the past, this is the first that really does deliver and does what it says on the tin. Fallout 4 on the go at 60fps !!!!! I’m a happy man now go treat yourself.
