Will a usb 360 controller work on the windows Halo 2?

I don't want to have to buy a computer controller just to play and get the achievements.

I have a wired Xbox 360 controller and it works fine... You can always play with a mouse and keyboard =s

Any wired 360 controller should work. Otherwise, I'd suggest getting a wireless adapter to use your previously owned 360 controllers (wireless).

I think it doesnt work with an adapter for a wireless controller. For me it didn't. But with a wire controller i didn't have any problems

I think the different results are due to different definitions of "wireless adapter." With this device
Amazon.com: Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows: Video Games Amazon.com: Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows: Video Games

you can use a wireless Xbox 360 controller with Windows.

I mistakenly thought I could use a Plug n' Play cable, like this:
Amazon.com: Xbox 360 Black Play & Charge Kit: Video Games Amazon.com: Xbox 360 Black Play & Charge Kit: Video Games

I later learned that the USB cable is only providing power to the controller, not passing data.

I now use a wired controller. I don't have personal experience with the wireless adapter.

The wireless controller works (with the Wireless Gaming Receiver )... but I had to configure the driver manually. Win7 ultimate could never find the right one by itself.
