I am playing on a 360 controller. I use the D-pad. Honestly I am not a pro fighter so it works fine. I find it to be a little bit annoying to do some of the moves but it's not that bad. Definitely not ruining my experience with the game at all. I never feel like it's the controller just my lack of skill. So to answer your question, I don't think you need a stick. Cheers.
I had the X360 MK since the day it came out.
FULL DISCLOSURE: the reg. Xbox controller is "servicable" to do the special moves while fighting during the round since they're not that complex like Street Fighter, etc. BUT don't plan on doing the more complicated fatality inputs with the D-pad on the first ten tries or less...
