No unless you plan on using bow and arrow all the way through without using melee. Switched to controller and found it WAY more enjoyable

must disagree. just as easy to play with a keyboard. you can access all the different wepons and melee just fine as all the controls are located on the left side of the keyboard, much like the setup you find on COD games

The game plays very well with m+kb.

It's fine, however I prefer controller as well.

hard to play on PC keyboard! Play the Xbox 360 with controller. Easy and fun then.

Best played with 360 controller ;)

I've played in on the PC on a laptop and a desktop system via keyboard - since I haven't played it with a controller I can't comment about the difference, but I've had no problem completing the game several times with a keybaord...

I'd say to get the most out of it, play with a controller if you can. To me it was much more enjoyable that way. I didn't like the feel of aiming with the mouse, it didn't feel 'smooth' so to speak but that might just have something to do with my settings ;)

It's probably a matter of what you're used to - the keyboard & mouse combination has been favored by PC gamers for years - since the days of Wolfenstein 3D and Doom. Console gamers have favored controllers. But the first (and thrid) person shooters designed for the consoles often include an auto-aim feature to make it "easier" to target opponents. So there are few (if any) multiplayer games that allow PC and console gamers to compete against one another (the PC users would mop the floor with the console gamers if they did...)

So considering that I think that's why the keyboard & mouse is the superior input device for these types of games...

IN MY OPINION It's not matter of If you use keyboard+mouse or gamepad, u just have to get skill with the hardware that u like to use and have fun

I ´m playing it with my controller

How is it better with a controller? Do you get auto aim with a controller or something? Cause I loved making headshots in this game, and I can't aim with a controller at all. I absolutely loved the mouse+keyboard controls. Only thing I kinda hated was the quick time events. 'Mash E' and 'Mash F' look too much alike, and I assume a big colourful button is easier in that case.

I like this game with a controller better, but the mouse and keyboard are also very useable if you dont have the controller option.

I play controller on SP ( i likes my rumble), but MP absolutely demands a mouse for flick-aiming for me, simply to be competitive against bow-sniper teams.

Otherwise, it plays perfectly on either imo. Mouse has no accel or lag and keys are fully rebindable.

What you chatting Trev? Melee works absolutely fine on keys.
Unless you're saying bow is OP with mouse-aiming? Which is more right. Same with any designed for console pad games, like Resident Evil, they become easy-cake with mouse aiming. Just play on hard to even it out a bit :]
