    I'm quite interested to see how well this is received. This is the game that Midway ploughed $30m into! :eek:

    Seems like a reasonable review, I'll keep an eye out on the PC version, especially at that price!

    I cancelled my preorder for the PC version until (unless) their's a playable demo. The review in PC Gamer was making hints about the controls being optimised for consoles which usually means plays like a dog on the PC.

    You can always get an xbox 360 Controller For Windows i have one and it's the best PC game pad ive ever had! ;)

    Bioshock even have an option for it and it tell's you the xbox 360 controls instead of the pc controls like it might say pick up E but when you turn on the option it say's to pick up A!

    I just can't get on with joypads, I've got a Logitech one which I never use. Decades of computer gaming from the Speccy onwards have left me only feeling comfortable with keyboards/mice or joysticks

    Blimey, that is quite a bit . I can't see what it will be using all that space for, the reports I've read do not suggest it's a prticularly long game either... :confused:

    The developers have made a big thing about how Stranglehold is the first true 'next gen' game because it has been optimised for controllers. All marketing puff of course but it probably means PC owners will be better playing this on a pad.

    Like you I'm not a fan of gamepads so might give this game a miss. Too many other new games to play at the moment...

    Ok a controller might not be as good as a mouse and keybord for FPS but iv'e had all the consoles and the PS3 and xbox 360 pad's are just as good as a mouse and keybord! :thumbsup:

    Let's just say i gave a mouse and keybord a 9-10 for FPS i whould give the xbox 360 Controller For Windows 8-10! ;)

    And you deffo need the xbox 360 pad for racing games anyway i will never play a racing game with mouse and keybord i will give mouse and keybord 5-10 for racing and the xbox 360 pad 9-10! :smashin:

    You need a pad anyway! And the xbox 360 Controller For Windows is deffo the best pad for PC! For consloes the PS3 pad is the best!

    Hope that helps! ;)

    The graphics are quiet poor on the 360. So much so I stopped playing it and I am going to wait for the pc version to arrive. I was just wondering if the ps3 was better than the 360.
