The design looks excellent in-person; it feels appropriate towards its source material, and by itself is a great piece of graphic designing. This isn't the first controller to have a spinning D-Pad; a concept that's fun, but completely unnecessary. The only other 'fancy' feature of this controller are the joysticks, which replaces the four directional bumps with a small intercut circular grip.
There isn't much else to discuss about this product: it's a controller, and it does its job well. There's obviously no point in purchasing it unless you enjoy the Call of Duty franchise. They usually sell less than the boring plain controllers in stores, so I leave the choice to pick one up completely up to you.

But it is SO PRETTY! Don't let the picture fool you into thinking that the skin job is "just awesome." This thing is gorgeous. If I were single and this controller were a woman I would repeatedly take it out to eat fancy seafood in public places where I could watch men and women drool alike over the awesomeness across the table from me. This controller is that pretty. The underside is black, the graphics are just on the top, and that really doesn't matter; as my mom sits in her living room redefining "low man on the totem pole," she is doing so with the sweetest looking controller made for any system I have ever seen.
Unlike the silver controller the back is a very textured matte black and the MW3 design on the top isn't slick like the tops of all of the other limited edition controllers. It's actually quite a bit easier to hold on to than any of the other 360 controllers I've tried since release day and includes the switchable d-pad. I purchased it since my silver one's right trigger stopped working every time I pulled it and find it to be ideal after playing Skyrim, MW3 & a bit of Battlefield 3 with it throughout the day, due to it being a lot less slippery.
I imagine this one would be good for people who's hands sweat when they play, though I can't say for certain as mine don't - it just seems to me that a less slippery controller would be better in that situation.
The grip is different than a regular controller, and it took me several hours to get used to it. Unlike the regular controllers, this one has somewhat of a grip on the top, and is slick on the bottom. It felt strange in my hands at first.
The responsiveness of this controller is AMAZING. I was having problems adjusting to it at first, and had to adjust my sensitivity several times until I realized that the controller was just that quick and responsive! Once I noticed that, I began to have a lot of fun with it. I don't think I could play with my old controller anymore..
The new D-pad changes from a regular D-pad to one that only has the 4 directions raised (it changes the height of the surrounding D-pad). Just with a twist! Its fun to play with but it has a tendency to make some noise while playing.. I almost like the old-style one-piece D-pad better.
The MW3 "exclusive" download is one little avatar item. Thats it.
All in all, I think this was a great purchase. After playing around with it for a bit, I love it. It is different than a regular 360 controller, but the difference is not a bad thing at all. Plus, I know which controller is mine! If you are in the market for a new controller, be sure to take a look at this one. It is totally worth it.
