Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight

This game is without gamepad support, so you have to use xpadder if you want to game with your pad. I did configure mine, and was able to play the game all to the end without any problems, just map the important keys, and off you go...

Being a past fan of Command & Conquer, I enjoyed the game, as well as some newcomers to this game might do. For multiplayer battle I asume keyboard / mouse might be the better option, as joypad do slow down the reaction time for this kind of game.

But if your not into these type of games, you might just leave this one alone, it's not your typical console game experience. It's fun while it lasts, takes around 2 days of playing to complete all the missions, after that it's not really interesting anymore, for single-players.

Alice in Wonderland

Finally a game that works out of the box using your logitech rumblepad 2 and dual action game pads. And it's not a bad game either, it's quite good, and it's a must to enjoy it with your game pads. You'll need a friend and two pads...

This will take you on the amazing journey of Alice and her friends. Enjoy it as well as the movie available in 3D, Tim Burton always been one of my favorite story tellers, ever since Nightmare Before Christmas...

Off to enjoy this game...

Update : Just completed the game, and it's a wonderful story, and It's one you can enjoy playing with your kids, as it allows for two players to help each other on the journey. If you're looking for a game for you kids, or just some light entertainment for yourself, this is a sure bet. It's a game made to be played with game pads, so you'll need two of them.
