It is.
I did get to lvl 6 with a gamepad but it such a waste of amunition when it comes to long rane shooting ( rifle/rifle HV etc... ).

They may add a option to be able to configure the disstance of aiming, so it may become playable. ( http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/showthread.php?731608-Here-s-a-challenge-finish-the-game-with-a-gamepad&s=fd7359185b2c43a53fe0a048c245bcb7 )

People kept asking for controller support, so they got it. Now they're complaining it's imprecise ? Then why ask for it ?

I'm not sure that it's the same people who wanted support that are complaining about how it works...anyway, it's always nice to have the option. [Edit for spelling]

Maybe cause it's possible to do it better ?
Are you serious ?

I like both controller type, i'm used to the Keyboard/mouse for ages but i prefer playing on my couch with a gamepad in hand.
Dev' announced the big picture mode so controls should be as effective with both control type, for now i did finished the game with K/M but i can't imagine doing so with the 360 controller.

I wouldn't ask for some changes if it wasn't possible to make pad control better, just allowing a variable for the aim radius would fix long range targeting, for now it's too close.

It's too far away for my liking. Ideal pad controls would be to have no crosshair at all and laser sight for aiming (like in Alien Swarm / Breed) - Holding the aim trigger could show the aiming line, as if holding the crosshair screen-length whilst aiming with the mouse. It's doable as is, but having to move the crosshair around the character feels needlessly cumbersome.

Have you played the game ?

I would agree with you but actually there is a line of sight between the charachter and the crosshair wich would serve the exact same purpose as this laser sight in Alien Breed... So yeah ideally you want to remove the crosshair but hey, that would be a start.

You're missing the point, that a stick would be far more responsive with 1:1 directional aiming and not having a fiddly cursor to move around. Granted the speed can be changed, I tried upping it to 8, but it still felt more cloddish than it ought to be.
