I am shocked at 2K for removing the pad support, what were they thinking? The first Bioshock was a joy to play on the pad so why remove it. Allot of pc gamers now use their HDTV's in their lounge to game on and require pad support. Also half of the keys to operate common functions are on the other side of the keyboard. This is a real let down as I loved the first Bioshock.
I know of a few people who are now not buying this game due to the lack of pad support and I don't blame them.
