Without any magic settings used in the software, we love the way the AL90 reacted to our movements, flowed across many different types of gaming surfaces, and even while using Optical switches, has a similar feel to many other mice in existence. The ADNS9800 laser sensor has proven itself again to be a solid contender, as we never found issues with lag or the sensor jumping or wandering. Most of our time was spent with the CPI set to 4000 to 5200CPI, but across the spectrum, we did not experience issues. Using LK Light Strike Optical M switches instead of Omron switches could have been a risky move, but we are seeing a trend with more companies opting to look to source other, better options when it comes to assembling peripherals. Since Bloody started things off years ago with Optical switches in them, it only makes sense to see them in mice now too.
With the software using some of its magical abilities, we did find life to be easier for gaming. We were moving much less when we unloaded a clip, which improved accuracy. Taking it a step further, but using Headshot mode, we were able to raise our kill count. While some may see this as cheating in whatever title you choose to use it with, it is not as blatant as an aim-bot. You still need to be very close to the intended target, but we are talking about a shot that might clip an ear off, would reconcile as a shot between the eyes. You just can't go around spray painting the map and hope to be some glorious kill streak god. That is not the intention here. From what we can see from our usage of these features, you already have to be good; this just helps you be a bit better at it.
What we come up with, in the end, it a gaming mouse which is intended to be used as such with what is offered in the features. Many claim to be gaming products, but do not go to the extent Bloody has to make this mouse a true extension of your hand, or deliver features like what we found built into the Ultra-Core software. There are a few more things that should also make you stand up and take notice of a mouse like this. Bloody took the time to develop new feet for effortless movement; they use LK Optical switches for faster response from finger to screen, and do it all in a comfortable shape which will suit many grip styles and hand sizes. The thing is, we get all of the features and ingenuity, and the Bloody AL90 Blazing Laser Gaming Mouse is affordable too. For just $59.99, the Bloody AL90 is a mouse you have to try for yourself to believe, but once under your right hand, prepare to experience all of the best in what a mouse can offer, without tacky styling or pimping RGB lighting to help sell it.
