New PantherXL Review scores 8.7 "BETTER than a Mouse" 10/15/98

Purified3d reviews the Panther XL and rates it a 8.7 out of 10. George 'Coyote' Paps took a look at the Panther XL and was impressed enough to say
Well, it turns out the Panther XL is not your regular joystick. As you see in the picture, it also features a 3D controller, a trackball based on the Assassin 3D technology (acquired by MadCatz, btw) which behaves BETTER than a mouse."
