5.0 out of 5 stars Game pad?, November 18, 2012
By 
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: LEGO Lord of the Rings - PC (DVD-ROM)
For those of you who have played this game on PC, how are the controls? My husband suggested that playing it would be better with a game pad, because using WASD can be difficult with Lego games. Have they improved that?

Why would you review this and give it 5 stars when you obviously haven't even purchased and played it on a PC?

For the best game experience it is recommended that you play LEGO® The Lord of the Rings™ using a dual analog gamepad with six buttons.

You will be unable to tip-toe /walk slowly when using a keyboard.

You could always plug a wired controller into your PC. That's what I plan to do with this game.

The XBOX 360 PC Gamepad is by far the best choice for Lego Lord of the Rings for PC.

I've played the demo level (free download) and successfully got 2 player to work great on Logitech controllers. One is a wireless rumblepad, the other a wired rumblepad. That said, Xbox controllers are 100% compatible with PCs. ;)

This game is beautiful on PC. As long as you have a 360 Gamepad that you can use on your windows machine (either wired or using the wireless dongle) you are good to go, it recognizes it beautifully! I am pretty sure this game REQUIRES a free Steam account to play, which in my opinion is a good thing. This game has Steam achievements and steam cloud support (it keeps copies of your save games "in the cloud" so they can't get lost)

Like others have said, a USB game controller is the way to go. I'm a major PC gamer, but I even broke out the gamepad for this one. But seriously, it's worth it. LOTR translates into the Lego world far better than, say, Indiana Jones did.
