Hi there,

I was wondering if you guys playing TR using a game pad or simply the keyboard / mouse combo?

I have a Logitec Xtreme gamepad (during my X wing days) and gave it a try, seems like the controls are more difficult and not enough buttons to use.

Whats the best way to play it with?

Keyboard all the way for games. I don't like controllers that much.

Hi and welcome azbro :wve: I have a Logitech Cordless pad that is basically a carbon copy of the Playstation style controller. I have played TRs using the keyboard just fine, but I'm more used to the control config of the PS games, so I just created a profile for the Logitech pad which was the same. I find this works really well for me, so I'd have to recommend a gamepad :)

Well, I guess I'll be using the keyboard then...

I'm playing TR on my laptop and bringing a gamepad around is a bit troublesome....hmm...my gamepad will be collecting more dust now.

I use a gamepad every time. I can't stand the keyboard as it's much more difficult to make complicated combination moves I find.

Gamepad, I use the Xbox 360 Controller for PC, just like playing on the 360, the Gamepad has the advantage of free movement in any direction as well as quicker key responses, also better for certain key combinations..., I couldn't imagine playing the bosses with a keyboard, these action/adventure game really should be played with a Joypad...

I prefer the keyboard myself, mainly because it's just what I'm used to. I currently have one the Logitech G15 keyboards (http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/products/details/US/EN,CRID=2288,CONTENTID=10717) so I can assign key combos to the programmable keys on the left. I have an XBox 360 controller fo PC but I find I'm more of a clutz with it and don't feel I have as much control. If I spent more time with it, I'd probably get better using it.

I prefer the keyboard, always have done. If I had a gamepad I might use it, but I'm better with a keyboard. :p

it depends on a game that on which controller is better whether on keyboard or gamepad
to be honest i like keyboard and mouse becaz its easy to aim with mouse and makes me feel more comfortable

Same for me.

I find it easier to play TR with a keyboard.
