I played it with a gamepad about an hr ago to see how it played. IT was awesome, it was really responsive and it just played better, mouse was ok but when you sprint it kind of felt twitchy. I don't like it when games are like that, where the combat feels like you need sensitivity up, but in other areas it feels like the sensitivity is too high for what you need to do. Looking forward to playing it on my 55" TV when I replace my current one. The sound of this game is really high quality as well. Don't know if it's uncompressed of what but yeah, it sounds better than 99% of games. Crysis/warhead had crappy compressed sound and you could really tell when there was explosions. It sounded like a 160kb/s MP3. Bulletstorm just sings on my 400watt fronts.
