I had trouble aiming with the controller at first, but after I played the game for a few hours I really got the hang of it. Now I almost prefer the controller to the mouse in some ways (not being precision, of course), but it ONLY feels comfortable in Halo, in every other FPS I played on the Xbox the controller aiming just doesn't feel right. Halo must do some magic thing with the aiming that actually makes it feel responsive on a control pad, it just seems to flow better than any other FPS on a controller. It's strange and I can't really describe it, but anyway you should get used to it.
