I tried back in 08 to play this game, it was lagging as hell and on top of that wouldn't work with ps2 controller (with usb adaptor). I ended up buying a shitty xbox360 controller where it's X axis barely worked. Fast forward to now, and there's some solutions.
And I used the official 1070 patch for the game, it runs like a dream now. It's odd walking around in a simulated reality. I raged on a few people...then it seemed a little to creepily real to me 0_0. *drives carefully*
