even if you could make the game accept a controller input, it's not going to be optimal due to the sheer number of bindings.

better bet is to get something designed specifically for PC games such as a Logitech G13, Belkin/Razer Nostromo, or Razer Naga if you must use something other than the keyboard

Unless I've missed some sort of fad on this board with game pad's, I see no reason as to why this isn't a legitimate question. If this isn't the case, no need to be an ass when this topic has a question which pertains to something a decent number of people play PC games with.

Don't really follow what you mean there buddy but I figure it's a douche move lol
Anyway thanks for the answers, I figured you couldn't since it's not cross platform. Guess I'll just have to get use to the keyboard and mouse. This will be the first pc game I really spend a lot of time on.

Slayn doesn't realize that Gamespot user info doesn't translate well on a GameFAQs message.

Really guy? I realize you haven't been around here very long, but new people do sign up for GameFAQs. Also, they Frequently Ask Questions about Games.

No, there is no gamepad support.

However, if you really like using one, and are willing to take the time to work out how to map what you need to a gamepad, download Xpadder. It's pretty simple to use, and I use it anytime I want to play a game using a gamepad that doesn't support one. You'll never fully be free of a mouse and keyboard, but for general gameplay and combat, you can make it work if you spend time with it.

And don't like the nay-sayers influence you; just because they don't like it or don't think it can work, doesn't mean it won't work. I used to use a gamepad for WoW, and I was always near or at the top of PvP standings in matches - even at endgame.
