Our Verdict

The Gamesir T4 Cyclone Pro is a very capable and enjoyable controller to use, that hides some fantastic tech and well-considered usability behind a fairly unassuming design. The Hall Effect features make the controller a perfect match for games that require that extra element of sensitivity and accuracy, and we also liked the way it feels in the hand when gaming for long periods of time.

For

  • Nice to hold, with a lightweight feel
  • Excellent sensitivity and controllability
  • Fantastic compatibility options and cross-platform support

Against

  • No native Xbox support
  • Design isn’t the most imaginative
  • Some users may prefer controllers with a heavier feel

When it comes to impressive controller performance, the Chinese manufacturer GameSir has form. Their G7 Xbox/PC controller replacement scored top marks when we reviewed it earlier in 2023, and they now have a wide and varied range of peripherals for PC, consoles and mobile gaming devices. 

Enter the GameSir T4 Cyclone Pro, a new gaming device that offers multi-platform compatibility, ‘tri-mode’ connectivity and hall effect anti-drift axis sticks that are said to offer a huge amount more longevity than comparable Playstation and Xbox controllers. There are two essentially identical versions, the cheaper non-pro model loses the headphone jack and the 2.4 GHz dongle, which is sold separately. There’s also trigger vibration on the pro model, which is a nice touch.
