I've got a 360 controller and receiver attached to my laptop. Even after being associated with LIVE, the game does not accept it.

Can you play this game with a PC controller, or are you forced to use the keyboard and mouse?

Keyboard and Mouse is a lot better anyway.

Why anyone would prefer to use a game controller for a FPS over M&K is beyond me. M&K is so superior that a game controller doesn't even begin to compare.

I plugged in my 360 controller before just to give it a go and it didn't seem to recognise it.

BioShock 2 does not support controllers of any kind on the PC.

But like the others said, KB+M is a lot better anyway.

No its not.

Having to cycle through weapons, ammo, and plasmids, or having to remember each button that each thing is bound to is horrible.

Game needs a damn controller, or at least a weapon select wheel for m&k.

Good. Force these scrubs to play an FPS the way it was meant to be played: with a freakin' mouse.

actually it does comparte,very well in fact

I dont understand why people think that a keyboard and mouse is better anyway, I mean I prefer a controller over a KB/M as do alot of my friends

you get analogue movement, meaty triggers and force feedback making the shooting ultimately a more satisfying experience

M/KB has the accuracy, the controler has everything else

Don't listen to the straw men who play the "kb and mouse is better anyway" instead of answering your question.

I own both versions and let me tell you, playing on the 360 is a joy and exactly how it is meant to be played.

If I am in the middle of a fire fight, I don't want to dive for the health key, or the plasmid up/down key as the Big Sister is throwing me around like a rag doll.
I doubt in real life, a Big Daddy would stop in a middle of a fight, and flip through a deck of cards to select a weapon and ammo combo.

2K could have easily solved the situation.

Either add the gamepad functionality for those that want it, can use it.
Add a radial system to the keyboard controls, so the game pauses while you select your weapon/plasmid (SP only)

2K refused to do either and seeing how they handled the DLC, it is clear they don't care.
