Valve has a released a video demo of the Steampad™ - I am coining that term - in use. It shows the controller being used in several games and has been released to display how the controller copes with being mapped for games that are not optimised for the controller in any way.

The video makes the controller look promising. The demo shows off a few different ways of binding the pad to cope with the different games, including the primarily keyboard and mouse optimised Civilisation V and while the Steampad™ appears to handle the games on show fairly well In the Counterstrike part of the video it does show that there is still a bit of a delay to get the speed and accuracy the same as a keyboard and mouse, especially when he goes to aim for a headshot.
