I dunno how the game will control with gamepads. But based on my
experience - the double joystick config for the arcade version of Virtual On
is pretty easy to control. I haven't played it in about half a year or so,
so I don't remember which button does what now. But the double stick
configuration isn't as awkward as you think. You just have to figure it out
a bit. Play it about three times and you'll easily get the hang of it.
I suggest using Temjin, Raiden or Viper first. Try learning how to dodge
missile attacks (particularly Raiden's) as a primary concern. It involves
using the turbo button and putting both joysticks to the extreme right or
left. After you've mastered that, learn how to counterattack on the run by
twisting one of the joysticks inward and shooting the missiles. You'll clear
most of the game with this technique, and this is the only way I've been
able to stop Raiden consistently.
