i assume your use to console shooters but let me tell you, since your playing this on pc the best thing to do would be to simply get use to mouse n keyboard. in the end you will be playing better than the controller.

Does anyone know if the 360 controllers work well on the PC? I personally prefer to play some games on the PC with a controller (singleplayer only just so I don't get ROFLstomped into the dirt), they just feel a little odd to me with the mouse and keyboard, but I don't know if there are any problems. Here's hoping there's no lag to it.

Yeah, till you try flying with a mouse and keyboard. then it just sucks ass.
Should be able to plug it in and have it just work.

Wait, it's normal for the keyboard and mouse to make flying more difficult? I thought I was the only one...

Make sure you have the controller plugged in before you start the game. And if its a wireless controller you have to buy an adapter.

Used a wired 360 controller to try out my pc on the beta. It's got super low specs for the game (M17x laptop - 1st gen), but it was fun to still end up doing decent to well on a controller. Never really had instances of "I wish I could've turned faster than that guy who killed me".
