Recently Karl from Retro32 also managed to get his hands on an Immortal Joystick to put it through his paces.
It is fair to say that he was impressed, as you can read for yourself in the review on his website.

Gemma from TheGebs24 included a very nice little Immortal Joystick section in her video review of OLL22.
At OLL Gemma had a try of the standard 2 button joystick as well as the prototype CD32 stick. She was very complimentary of the joysticks and we hope to be able to get one of the CD32 sticks to her for a full review as soon as the final retail version is ready.
In the meantime, do check out Gemma’s OLL review video.
