Again, having played it for only 30 minutes or so I saw no point. I was curious as to whether there was a point. I still think it's overly complicated if it doesn't come into play often, and I think it turns what's already a niche title into a very niche title without particularly adding much use.
It was a niche title with or without the control scheme. Like any other control scheme you can be adjusted to it very quickly and it's quite intuitive for the positions the game places you in. Some things are just not made for you, that doesn't mean they need to be changed. I sincerely doubt the control scheme is what is holding this title back from sudden success.
As an aside, that is probably the most bizarre complaint I've seen with the game. If you were forced to use a gamepad with that control scheme, ok I get that. Instead you can use a mouse which accomplishes the motions as fast or slow as you want. It requires no real effort, certainly not the herculean effort you imply.This comment was edited on Sep 20, 2010, 12:21.
