PS1 Mouse controlled games.....

Post by nokgod » Tue Dec 29, 2009 4:42 am

I've got X-Com Enemy Unknown and Terror from the Deep both winging their way to me as we speak.

I want to know whether its worth picking up a PS1 mouse for just these two games and also what other games utilised the controller?

I have an inkling that Railroad Tycoon 2 used it, but other than that, i'm in the dark.....

Also, does anyone have one they'd like to sell me? :D

Alien Reserection uses the mouse and makes it 10X more playable..

It's also worth getting it for all the point'n click games obviously... as well as Warcraft 2 & the Command & Conquer games.

The Die hard games and Area 51 use the mouse as a replacment for the light gun so not the best games to use a mouse with really..

Yeah....going to get one! There's enough games on that list that interest me, to warrant the purchase.... :D
Got to find one at a reasonable price now. The only boxed one on ebay is £25 BIN :shock: I missed out on one yesterday...it went for £7.50. I forgot all about it... :oops: :roll:

Well, after aztecca gave me a heads up i decided NOT to buy a mouse after all. I've gone for this instead. It looks so much more interesting.....
