Syndicate control question..

Post by desiv » Tue Jul 07, 2009 6:18 pm

I read some good reviews of this game, so I played it for about an hour last night. Looks like it could be fun, but the control seems a bit touchy for me.

I haven't seen anyone else mention control issues online, so I'm wondering if it's just my controller (or my bad reflexes : ).

When trying to get the cursor to stop on my target, I keep overshooting, and it seems that I can't move it just a little bit to get it where I want.

Should it be this touchy? Is this something I just have to get the hang of?

Are the people who really like this game using a mouse? (which I don't have to test..)

Just wondering....

The controls are rubbish. It was after all a PC/Amiga game that got shoe-horned on to the consoles with no regard for the control mechanism. In fact the only thing they changed was mouse support. Which I believe the 3DO version doesn't. (Support a mouse that is!)

Loved Syndicate, and Syndicate Wars to a lesser extent.

By all accounts EA are reviving the franchise and handed the IP over to Starbreeze Studios, should be interesting to see what they do with it.
