For the last year, I’ve been slowly getting back into PC gaming. Don’t get me wrong, I still very much love my Xbox and PS3, but there’s just something that always draws me back into the PC gaming world. So I did what any serious PC gamer does, and built my own top-notch PC. But there was just one thing missing… a new gaming mouse.
When A4Tech’s reps informed me about the Bloody Ultra Core3 gaming mouse, I was more than delighted to hear about this new piece of gaming goodness. I’ve spent about 2 weeks solely using the mouse now, and I can say without a doubt that I am more than impressed with it.
For only $39.99, you can pick up this new mouse on popular sites like Amazon or Newegg. I know what a lot of you may be thinking, “$39.99??? Surely the mouse can’t be that good, for that price!” But you’re wrong! Yes, most well known manufactures of products like this mark it up to $100 or more which hurts consumers’ pockets. But A4Tech has made something that is both attractive to the eye, comfortable to use, and most importantly… will not leave you broke.
Speaking of being comfortable, the mouse features areas to rest both your thumb and your pinky finger on while playing. The entire mouse body cups perfectly into your hand, and doesn’t feel awkward to use. For a guy like myself with big hands, this was a fantastic feature. I’ve used far too many mice that were too small that made my hand cramp up after a while.
The Bloody Ultra Core3 connects via USB cable, and that cable has a cool design, feels extremely durable, and it doesn’t seem to kink up into knots like other mouse or headphone cables do. The weight of the mouse is something else to be in awe of, it feels light as a feather almost. Ok, maybe not exactly THAT light, but you get the point. I didn’t grow tired of using it in various FPS games (like my recent addiction with the Dead Space franchise).
The mouse wheel moves smoothly, and even glows a bright aura around it, which may be a delight to you “in the dark” gamers. Directly behind that mouse wheel you will find 3 buttons that operate the “cores” of the device. To put it simply, the cores are like having 3 different types of this device in 1. One core is solely for gaming and taking down the enemies in your favorite games, another is for everyday uses like browsing the web, and lastly the final core is a mixture of both.
Also included with this device is a fantastic piece of software which not only allows you to test your mouse and see just how well it performs, but also allows you to program the mouse to your choosing. With auto recoil-suppression and trajectory adjustment capabilities, this mouse is a force to be reckoned with.
Final Verdict: 4 out of 5
For a gamer who is trying to dip their toes into the gaming peripherals market, but not looking to go broke, this mouse is perfect for you. For its price, you cannot deny the awesomeness of the amount of configurable options that is available to you. That’s what matters most, being able to make it your own. If A4Tech can keep up the quality of products like this, they have a long road ahead of them.
