The PS3 version is a lot better than the Wii version. This is one of the best games from my childhood. If you ever want to buy this game, then do it. If you already played this game before, then play it again.
I use a PS3 controller paired to my PC using ScpToolkit. Because Windows doesn't have drivers for PS3 controllers normally, the controller spoofs an Xbox 360 controller.
Now I do have motion controls set up, but they are detected as a different source and are not part of the controller like they would be on a PS4 controller. I can use them with Cemu (Wii-U emulator) as Cemu has a separate section for adding motion controls.
Cars 2: The Video Game brings you inside the international training center CHROME (Command Headquarters for Recon Operations and Motorized Espionage), where they choose from more than 20 different characters and train to become world-class spies. As part of their international training, they will participate in simulated hazardous missions using high-tech gadgets to evade and slow down adversaries.
I've never tried to use a PS3 controller on PC, but how does this work? I'm assuming it shows up in Windows as a separate device? I tried using my Xbox One controller with steering remapped to my wheel (2 different devices in Windows as well) and it works fine. I wouldn't race like this but it does work.
Project CARS 2 is decently playable imo with a standard gamepad, same goes for most of the games in that bundle except for Assetto Corsa which I couldn't get feeling right with a gamepad ever
