For me it's controller all the way. Then again, I played the game originally on psx, so maybe that's why.

Controller definitely. I've always played on console, so keyboard just doesn't work for me.

(This is coming from someone who has played the classics her whole life on a keyboard and just recently started playing TR1 and TR2 on Controller)

I personally prefer Keyboard, it's easier to navigate and align, the only game I personally think is better on a controller is Aod and LAU, I'm struggling with TR1 and Tr2 is okayish.

My preferance is Keyboard or Keyboard & Mouse for all of them without a doubt.
It's more precise and offers a better feeling of being in control of everything I do or am trying to do. I definitely don't miss having to play with a Controller at all.

That tells me that you are lazy or not very good at using the controller. Looking for the easy solution to play lol.

The controller is way to go, the love the feel and challenge especially because of tank control.

I had always played using the keyboard until recently. It took a bit of practice to get used to the controller, but now I think they are equally good. Keyboard may be slightly superior though if we consider the quick access keys (F5/F6 and numbers to select guns).

On a side note, I don't feel the classic controls to be odd at all. It may be because I grew up playing these games, but they are quite good!

Always keyboard for me. I only use controller for racing games (sometimes) and fighting games.

Yeah, totally. That's why I used to play them on a controller for 15 years.
