Someone gifted it to me on Steam.

Debating whether to install , I realize it's not the greatest game but I'm bored ! Insanely bored.

So you have the game and it was gifted to you and you don't even wanna atleast try it and see how it is? to answer your question yes, it works fine with KB/M

Works with K+M, both controller and K+M work well for RE5 imo.

I played RE5 with mouse and keyboard. It was great. Controlled perfectly. Unlike RE4...

TPSs often function more efficiently with a controller.

Typically, yeah. Some just screw it up, though, and make the mouse feel real bad. In general, though, when it's done right, anything that involved aiming is better with a mouse.

Edit: Haha. I just realized you said "with a controller", not mouse.

Thats a matter of opinion. I find RE5 is better with KB&M. Aiming is better and inventory management is easier.

It was good with K/M. I wanted to use my 360 controller, but I was playing it in co-op and needed chat.

I completely disagree. Even in TPS games I like to have the accuracy of a mouse. I can't stand aiming with a controller.

This^^^^ if you worried if it controlled like re4, they didn't make the same mistakes.

Yup. I think it's because they actually set out to make a "PC version" of RE5. With 4, they just outsourced to Ubisoft years later to throw together a port for a few more sales.

that said, I've been replaying RE4 recently, on PC. And... after fixing the issues with mods, then drastically enhancing the graphics with more mods... definitive version. Looks and plays amazing.

Fluid motion is usually the crux of cover-centered TPSs, with reticle precision plays a lesser role. Traversing a level with a keyboard is burdensome in faster-paced cover shooters like Gears or Vanquish. Even in a slow-paced game like GRAW, it's quite hideous. Then again it depends on the game. KB+M would probably work more efficiently in Resident Evil or Dead Space.

This. Aiming is indeed easier plus you have the number keys to pull out your items where as with a control you only have the 4 arrows so you have to bring up the item screen for the other 5 items and the game doesn't pause when you do that.

I played RE5 with M&KB by default. Apart from the weirdly wild difference in look sensitivity between walking and aiming modes which sometimes gave me motion-sickness like symptoms, it worked great.

GRAW isn't a TPS on the PC (at least GRAW 2 isn't). I have never felt restricted in movement by using a keyboard vs a controller. Movement with a controller doesn't feel any more fluid to me.

I tryed it first with a mouse and keyboard...had to switch to controller, didnt like it. Its far better than RE4 was though, still an obvious port.
