Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Ice Age works perfect with a rumble pad 2, you just need to copy the following files into the path.

Program Files/Activision/Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs(TM)/

As a lover of the previous ps2 games, I expect quite allot from this game as it is the third in the series, hope it will live up to it. So far it looks like it will live up to it, some info from the box. One thing I notice is the audio is a bit bad, but that might be adjustable, I did not tune the audio yet. I'll be on this one for a couple of hours before I get back to overlord II (my current top game).

Join Ice Age's unlikely herd of prehistoric pals for their wildest, wackiest, most exciting adventure yet! For the first time, play as six beloved Ice Age characters as they embark on a rescue mission across melting snow to the mysterious Dinosaur World - an all-new, fur-raising jungle of carnivorous plants, lush foliage and fierce dinosaurs.

Based on the highly anticipated Fox film Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, it's a rollicking ride of mammoth proportions! Revisit the humor, characters and prehistoric environments from the movie - Players relive adventures from the film and beyond with all their favorite characters - earnest but goofy Sid the Sloth, big-hearted Manny the Mammoth, courageous Diego the Saber-toothed Tiger and inadvertent troublemaker Scrat - as they all frozen Ice Age to the lush Dinosaur World.

Experience continuously changing gameplay through more than 15 levels - Every level presents new and exciting challenges as players learn and master each character's abilities in order to defeat enemies, traverse dangerous landscapes, avoid obstacles and escape from perilous situations.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

In the game of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, players will return to Hogwarts to help Harry survive a fraught sixth year. They will also have a chance to engage in exciting wizard duels, mix and brew magical ingredients in Potions class and take to the air to lead the Gryffindor Quidditch team to victory. Players may even get sidetracked by RonĂ¢€™s romantic entanglements as they journey towards a dramatic climax and discover the identity of the Half-Blood Prince.

This game works with the rumble pad 2 out of the box. Even if it shows you a picture of a xbox 360 controller it will still refer to numbers. Quite a nice game, but I was expecting a bit more from such a big title.

Released : 30 June 2009

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is the prequel to Call of Juarez and will take you through ravaged Civil War-era Georgia to the Aztec ruins of Mexico.

THE OLD WEST, 1864. In order to save their family, the McCall brothers will kill anyone who stands between them and the legendary Gold of Juarez. But when the allure of women and money tests their bond as brothers, will the blood they share prove to be thicker?

You may download the needed files from (Unless you already have them) :

After Install make sure you copy the following files in to the following directory :

Program Files/Ubisoft/Techland/Call of Juarez - Bound in Blood/


I did not have time yet to evaluate the game, but it seems to be good enough to give it a go on saturday. I'm a big "wild west" fan and what can be better than a first person western shooter. I'm personally feed up with any WWII stuff. This will give me a needed break from Overloard II, :) I've been looking forward to this release since I heard about it. I'm actually not a great fan of first person games, I more like the third person perspective, It's just to bad the game don't have that option aswell.

Released : 30 June 2009


FUEL delivers exhilarating, spectacular races, at any time of day in a huge range of vehicles. Experience the dynamic weather system and witness how deadly tornadoes and sandstorms affect the way your race plays out. Negotiate diverse terrain from deep snow to arid riverbeds, battle the elements and pull off stunning stunts as you race and explore an epic world on an unprecedented scale.

After install you need to copy the following in to the directory you installed the game :

Program Files/Codemasters/FUEL


And the game will work fine, it's quite a good game, as a dedicated racing fan I would so far rate this game as a 8 out of 10. It was a bit low frame-rate on my setup in high detail, I'll try and tweak it to a better setup. It's just to bad there is no in-game options to tweak the performance, so it's painful to restart the game each time, just to see how well it does.

Edit: After some playing, I must stay that this one of the better driving overall action games I've seen for a long time, I'm a big fan of it and if you're into driving you cannot pass this one, I would not really understand why anyone would give this game a low overall score. And yes, first time I tried I got a bit low frame-rate, but that was my computer beeing on to long, :) It works fine with default settings at full frame-rate.

Overlord II

Another game that only works with the xbox 360 wired controller, but thanks to this tool you can play it fully with a logitech rumble pad 2.

Download :

In Directory :

Program Files/Codemasters/Overlord II

First rename
xinput1_3.dll to xinput1_3.dll.old

Then the following into it


And it will work perfectly, this is also quite a good game, After a while of playing you realize this is truly a great game, that you just want to keep playing. I've already spent many hours on it, and it just keeps getting better and better.

Released : 24 June 2009

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

This seems to work fine just out of the box, except as with ghostbusters, the camera seems to be sliding down all the time, I've not yet found a solution for this problem. Might be some settings available for the pad, if anyone knows please let me know. [Note: I've found the solution that it is probably a bad connection, unplugging and replugging it in will do the trick, just run the config program for the pad, and check that the two are in the middle when not touching them], hopefully this problem is not to reoccuring.

The game itself so far I'm just past the tutorial and into the first mission (3%), it's not really my kind of game, I was expecting a bit less complex game, more plug and play, less have to figure out the settings and options. it's also a big downer that it wont do my current game setup resolution 1360 x 768. I have to settle with 1280 x 720, which does not look as good on my monitor, the picture becomes quite dark in this mode.

I've never played the first game, but I'm sure it's not much better, at the moment I think only hardcore transformers fans would find this game attractive. I would rate it 5 / 10.

It'll probably be gone quite fast from my HD to make space for something more interesting.

Ghostbusters The Video Game

Works right out of the box with my rumblepad2, I first had some problem with the camera sliding down all the time. But after I copied some files into the directory, it seems to work? It might just have been my controller or not? (Note I found that just unplugging / replugging your rumblepad will solve the problem if the dpads is not synced properly).

Program Files/Atari/Ghostbusters/

This game already has a "xinput1_3.dll" file in the dir, and it wont work to replace it. I would have preferred the game using the xbox emulation, as it will make the key hints in the game better, I rather see press "A", instead of press "2". It beats me why logitech dont get more logical key names, that is easy to relate to, as nobody can remember where key "6" is, while "R1" does makes sense.

The game itself is totally awesome, just my kind of game, some busting just make you feel good. I'm already probably 80% into the game already. I'm now on the "Lost island", and so far it's been easy to figure it out, and fun. (Edit: Now I've completed the game after ~15hours of great game playing. I give this game a full 10/10 points, and it's probably the best game I've played for a long time, since I completed crysis warhead).

In case you need some help, try this guide.

This is defenately one of the games you should have a go at. I'll give it easily 10. It got great story, wonderfull gameplay, and nothing beats playing a ghostbuster.

Released : 18 June 2009


This is a great game. Put the files in the :

Electronic Arts/Crytek/Crysis/Bin32/


And it works fine just like crysis warhead.

Released : 11 November 2007


This game fully supports the rumble pad. It's a so so game, looks like entierly built on the spiderman engine.

Left 4 Dead

I could not get this title to work good with a joypad. If anyone had luck getting it to work properly as this type of game should be controlled. Give me some input.
