Dead Space PC Controls Nerfed?

WhatIfGaming has a post about the controls in the PC edition of Dead Space, after playing around with a prerelease edition of the sci-fi horror game. They take strong issue with the controls, saying "The smoothness compared to consoles is just not there, and from what we can tell it doesn’t seem like a patch can fix most of the issues. Inventory stack access becomes frustrating when fighting with monsters and aiming for on-the-fly changes." They contacted EA and got the following explanation: "Dead Space for PC is an equivalent experience to that on consoles. The controls are different and customizable, but we feel it’s in the best ability for the players to match what the console experience is like." Reviews of the PC edition are not yet appearing, it will be interesting to see whether this is considered an issue for others.

Am I the only one who is reading this as it's not exactly a problem with the console style controls not translating well to the PC version, it's because they tried to alter the movement etc in the PC version to make the game feel like you are playing on the console/pad when you are actually using a mouse/keyboard. If that's the case then it will probably be just as horrible to play on a PC with a pad as it would with a mouse/keyboard.
