Not really ....What controller do you use?

I do. I got the normal xbox controller with a USB adaption at GameStop, I prefer using the controller, as I'm just terrible at playing with keyboard.
I use an xbox controller with what is above an usb adaption!

Yes it is hard to use the keyboard to do specials combo move. It keep switching many move to take down different enermies while they all attacting Badman at the same time with special weapons. Badman died because he either slow or lost control, even lost direction :D I don't have Xbox controller maybe I should try to use PS3 controller to see if it will work. Thanks

Gamepad slows this game down IMO... you can pan around the fights much faster and attack the guy you want every single time using the mouse.

You must rebind your controls though, because the default keyboard controls are horrendous. Change the quickfire key so you don't have to double tap the number keys, and make the combo moves easier to reach (T and G by default? Really?) and you'll find much greater success mixing it up in your fights.

I think this is actually one of the better games for using a controller on a PC. I normally don't - I can't play FPS with them at all. But for Batman, an xbox controller works great.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by this. The game "slows down" whenever you start racking up the combos / freeflow, and with a controller you can use the right stick to pan around and pick your next target while you're attacking. I haven't used kb/mouse on this game myself, but it sounds like I can do just as well with a controller. I'm at least able to rack up 50x+ combos without too much trouble.

Panning the camera round with the mouse is very fast compared to panning with the controler, its way more fluid when you suddenly have to turn the camera 180 degrees, but the downside is that you have to use the kbd too, which sucks.

Using an wired x-Box Controller by Microsoft. Works great. Played Batman Arkham City on a PS3 before but I prefer the xbox-controller over the PS3 controller. Wouldnt want to play this game with mouse/keyb.
