A not to great title, due to that it plays a bit jerky on my PC, it flows nicely but then once in a while the framerate plays a trick on you, just like damnation. And that just makes the game unplayable. It got native rumblepad support which is great.

Prince of Persia

I'm yet to test this game out, it's been stuck on my shelf for a while now.

Assassin's Creed

Assassin's Creed is a pure pleasure to play, it's one of these really rare gems that just have to be played over and over.

It's fully supporting the logitech rumblepad 2.

Don't miss this game.

Silent Hill Homecoming

Another great game in the silent hill series, I've so far not been able to play this. But it do look good, and I've enjoyed the others.

Program Files/Silent.Hill.Homecoming/Bin


Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto IV is a kickass game, a bit disapointing that the game wont run smoothly on a HD 4670, I know it's not the best of graphics today. But todays games should atleast have the settings to make it run smooth. Anyway it's still playable at a lower framerate.

And it will work great. I've seen that the latest patch would actually support the logitech rumblepad 2, but I've not have had the time to try it yet.

LEGO Indiana Jones

LEGO Indiana Jones works just fine with the controller. It's also a great game for all LEGO gaming fans.


Wow, this is the first game, I've played all to the end with my logitech rumblepad 2. And it was a great pleasure. It runs really well on my HD4670, with some settings tweaked.

One of the best games I've played this year. I'm going for a second run.

Released : 17 September 2008

Devil May Cry 4

This is a tricky one, and you may think it's fine using the controller to play the game without any emulation, but it's not. It wont give you the very smooth movement unless you use the emulation. Basically any game that you have to switch mode on the controller to get it to work, will not provide a good game play.

The game itself is outstanding, I'm going to pick up Devil May Cry 3 as well, just because this game is such amazing. I've only completed the first edition on the PS2. This is one of those games you simply cant miss.

LEGO Batman

LEGO Batman works out of the box. This is also one of this great older games, I've already completed this on the PS2 a few times, but wanted to experience this on a HD (1360x768) with enhanced graphics RADEON HD 4670.

Great Game, well worth the few $ it costed for the PC.


UP is quite a nice game, but nothing that will last.

To get the emulation working copy the following :

Program Files/THQ/Disney_Pixar/UP


This game will pretty soon be resold. It's from what I've seen so far, not worth much.

Burnout Paradise The Ultimate Box

Burnout Paradise, is definitely one of my top favorite games, since I'm a dedicated race fan. It is fully supporting the logitech rumblepad 2.

This game is a keeper for all you race fans. I've always loved the burnout games on all platforms.

Spider-Man - Web of Shadows

For this game you need to copy the files into :

Program Files/Activision/Spider-Man - Web of Shadows/image/pc


It's one of the "older" games that I still wanted to try on my new setup, and being a dedicated spider-man fan it's definitely one for the collection. It's overall a great game that flows nicely with good atmosphere.

Monsters vs. Aliens

Another game where the pad works perfectly.

The game itself is quite enjoyable, well worth spending time on completing. It's also a great relaxation compared to the more serious games that is more common on the PC platform.

X-Men Origins - Wolverine

This was the first game I tried that actually supports the logitech rumblepad 2, great work Activision.

The game itself is quite good. I've completed a few levels, but I'm quite happy with it. This is definatly worth completing. Did not have any problems with it so far, and the game flows nicely on my RADEON HD 4670.


Damnation, is a bit tricky to get working, you need to version 3.0 of the emulation software, find it by searching for "XBOX360 Controller Emulator v3.0". should get you to, this is the main site for the software.

you need to copy all files, including the .dll to hide your current controller from the game.

Put these files into "Program Files/Codemasters/Damnation/Binaries"


The Game itself is not very satisfying, it got fairly good graphincs, but I had to turn off my virus protection in order to run it, and it's still a bit jerky 3d. It does not have a nice flow to it, or a good gaming feeling. I would not recommend this title to anyone. I'll probably recycle this pretty soon, it's not worth getting into.

Terminator Salvation

To get Terminator Salvation to work with your logitech rumblepad 2, you need to get an early version of the emulation software, v1.0, did the trick for me, I had to recompile it to get the buttons working right.

Search for "XBOX360 Controller Emulator v1.0" will take you to the correct place, at

Or download the compiled file from :

Place the file in :

Program Files/Evolved Games/Terminator Salvation

I would rate this game as very playable on a Radeon HD 4670, with a controller. Nice graphics and gameflow. It's said to be a short game, since I've not yet completed it I cant tell you. I'm just 2 chapters into it. It's very enjoyable.

Logitech Rumblepad 2 - XBOX 360 Emulation

Just recently I turned back to PC gaming, being away from it for oven a decade. Due to the love of the PS2, and the PS2 controller, I decided to get the Logitech Rumblepad 2. But soon like many others I face the bitter truth of almost no game support, this leading me to dig around for some kind of xbox 360 emulation for the rumble pad, and to my surprise I found a really great software that would do the trick.

A search for "XBox360 Emulation v3.0" would point you into the right direction.

Why not just buy a xbox 360 controller, and play all games without any hassle of having to copy this piece of software into the directory of every game you install? Well mostly because I don't like the xbox 360 controller. I'm a dedicated PS2/Ps3 controller fan.

This software will probably do the trick for the PS3 controller as well, I guess I'll find out once I get one. Until then I'm happy with my rumblepad 2.

Not that my setup is especially tuned towards game play, it's decent enough to be at the same level as the ps3/xbox 360. I've got a AMD 4800+ 2.4GHZ, RADEON HD 4670, and it performs very well on games coming out today, for a good price.

Why not get a PS3 or a XBOX 360

Well the XBOX 360 is known for blowing up, and I don't want to take the chance, sorry microsoft, you just have to keep your software coming for the PC for me to buy it.

PS3, I might get one just to be able to play the exclusive titles comming out from sony only, I consider sony as the best game developer on their platforms, as they have alway had the very best titles. If sony drops the price under $200, and keeps new titles priced ~$20, then I rushout and get one at once.

Also the price of PC games is a bit more attractive, I can get more for the $$$ I spend, and that is quite important. As there is a few titles monthly that is a great buy, and if what you get is does not live up to the review or demo, at least you got away at a lower price, :)

I'll keep you posted on the games I try, and how to get them working.
