View Full Version : Is a Gamepad worth it?

10-06-2008, 10:57 AM
So I've just ordered AC. I am looking very much forward to it.

Would buying a gamepad be a good idea, (X-Box 360 controller for Windows), or should I stick with my keyboard & mouse combo?

Welcome to the forums,

Well, for games that use a pad, I tend to use my Wired 360 pad and it works fine for the majority of games, including Assassin's Creed PC.

If you're use to the 360 pad, then it will be easy for you to get used to it. If you're more at home with Mouse and Keyboard, I would try it first and see how you get on but both work effectively to play the game.

yeh if your more use to playing with the mouse and keyboard try it first as I still play that way as I prefer it over the controllers.

so realy its just a case of how do you prefer to play.

I have a saitek P990 and it works well with the game, but i still perfer a M&K just because ive used them for so long.

i like the feel of my saitek P990 better than my sixaxis/360 controller aswell.
