Gamers who have pined for a PC version of the Wiimote can find the first capable performer with the Hydra, Razer's foray into motion-based controls. Reviewers say the level of accuracy provided by the Hydra can't be matched by any other PC Wiimote-style peripheral, although it still can't compete with the sheer precision of a keyboard and mouse setup. Performance with the bundled version of "Portal 2," which is optimized for the controller, is second to none, but using it with other games isn't as seamless. Reviewers recommend picking up the Razer Hydra if you're a big motion-control fan and willing to wait, but in general users may want to wait until more titles come around that are built for the peripheral -- especially considering its $140 price tag.
