It involves aiming, so mouse.

Keyboard and mouse. I hated trying to aim my long range shots with the controller. It would always lock on to an enemy I didn't want to shoot.

I've played through 3 times+ with the keyboard and mouse, always though top down games like this always worked better with them.

I tend to switch back and forth depending on whether I'm doing more precise aiming or more precise movement. Mostly 360 though, since auto aim is good enough for most short range aiming and precise movement helps me better stay alive.

I'm slighty annoyed controlling isometric games with keyboard, because a stick gives you an advantage when it comes to fast movement chains that involve a lot of circle rolling/dodging, nonetheless i'd prefer mouse/keyboard because of the shooting parts, which weren't nealry as enjoyable on the 360.

Yeah ... with a mouse it's much easier to aim!

PS3 controller all the way! I'm godawful at using keyboard/mouse in top-down games. Like, I have a downright IMPRESSIVE lack of skills at that.

well the best would have been a kind of analog stick on the left hand, and the mouse in the right hand.

This. It's not that KB+M>gamepad. It's rather that mouse>>gamepad>keyboard.

The ideal would be some sort of keyboard+gamepad hybrid controller for the non-mouse hand. Actually, I know there is something like that. But it's geared for FPS, so main movement is still wasd, and the closest thing to analog control is -I think- a dpad for the thumb. So it wouldn't really be much help.

PS3 Controller works best for me.

I feel it works fine with a Keyboard+Mouse. I am enjoying it and don't really have any control issues to speak of. I can't speak for any controllers though as I haven't tried them.

I use keyboard, but I know controller is better.
