Additional Comments

This game works perfectly with a great framerate. Shadows, high-res textures, advanced filters, lens flare, and all other options work. I tested with my Xbox 360 controller with the "iforce" module enabled for forced feedback. With this configuration rumble worked properly and the controller emits short rumble effects when firing weapons. Comparing the rumble effect to the way it feels playing on the original Xbox the rumble feels correct in duration, strength, and timing.
