I’m going to be honest with you. My gaming experience, while starting on the computer with Civilization II back in the 80s , gradually dwindled down to nada over the years after playing on consoles for most of my life.
But I suffer from debilitating nostalgia so, in the last couple of months, I’ve been getting back into PC gaming slowly (mostly through HumbleBundle and Steam) and have discovered that I rather enjoy it.
Now, having said that, my skill set with a mouse is still a bit sketchy, so playing with the Bloody V8 Headshot Gaming Mouse by A4Tech, was bit, well, over-powering, seeing that it has a 3-level mouse core with 3 different capabilities and, if playing a FPS the L-key can deliver various fire power from a single shot, a double shot and a burst shot to using 5 kinds of guns that the user can define.
Like I said, if you are used to a basic mouse, it’s going to take time to get acquainted to the Bloody V8.

There’s a lot about this mouse to like even if you aren’t a hardcore gamer.
It fits in your hand well, and after a few hours of playing, your hand doesn’t start to cramp. The buttons are very intuitive, and, using their super large Crazy Fighter Tracking Mousepad, helped the mouse move really well.
However, I feel like the amount of power that the mouse provides is strictly for those gamers who are looking for millisecond precision and who are at the level of Pro rather than those that play say, Poker or Portal 2 for fun on the PC. If you only use the mouse for simple game play you’ll be missing out on a lot of options, so take that into consideration before going out and purchasing the V8 mouse.
