Great review. I was wondering if you have had any success setting up a wired Xbox 360 controller with this game? I know it says in the description that it is supported but I haven’t had any luck.
Hmm, I only tested it with mouse & keyboard. I’ve just now tried the wired controller and it’s greyed out. It could be it’s not compatible with the tattiebogle driver. Anyway, I’ll update the article and I’d recommend you log a ticket at http://support.aspyr.com
