I just didn't feel like writing a ton (hell, more than a few sentences).
I also probably incorrectly assumed you were more familiar with my previous posts on the topic of noir. As far as controls go, I stand by what I said, I played some MP2 days before MP3, a shoot dodge is a shoot dodge. In a story driven game like MP3 I'd rather have more realistic animations than millisecond turn-on-a-dime responsiveness but even having said that I didn't really notice the delays. Dodging bullets? That just seemed like a happy accident throughout the series... remember bullet time doesn't speed up Max's movements just his/your reaction speed.
