So, you've got all the coolest new games and a ripping 3D accelerator, but you're still using your keyboard as a controller? If you're looking to take the plunge into true gaming, then the Logitech WingMan Gamepad is the controller to take you there.
The WingMan Gamepad ships with Logitech's WingMan Profiler software to help you program the buttons for each of your favorite games. Installation was easy--we simply connected the WingMan Gamepad to the game port on our sound card, loaded the software, and the step-by-step installation took care of the rest.
The button layout is fairly intuitive, but when you're in the midst of a hard-core race, some of the buttons are a little difficult to reach. You inevitably have to take your finger off the thrust in order to perform other functions. However, since the buttons are fully programmable, reassigning button functions is simple and you can assign single commands or multicommands to each button or trigger.
The built-in two-player connectivity is a nice feature, allowing two players to play out of one port in multiplayer-supported games. The WingMan Gamepad also ships with a few bundled games; however, the choices that shipped with our unit weren't too enticing. All in all, this is a nice, well-priced controller that won't let you down in the heat of a battle.
