    Utter frustration. Every part of the controller is used, including both analog sticks, which have dual functions. It's nearly impossible to master these controls.

    Its difficulty leads to an enormous amount of fun and it really drives you to keep going. It's action packed, rewarding and satisfying. Interesting story and good graphics for its time. The only thing keeping it from a 10 is a lack of polish. Full Review »

    I can understand why this game has had such polar reivews. It's got a great introspective story, in a stylish and original universe. But it does lack a certain polish in spots, and of course the control is poor. Mostly just the camera control is unintuitive. Overall I think it's a respectable game, but nothing too special.

    This game gives you an amazing amount of control over your character. While the learning curve is steep, the rewards are great once you master them. Sprint across the ground then thrust up into the air, whip around 180 degrees and rain death upon aliens below -- thrilling! You have to get past thinking about what button to press and just think about what you want to do, and have your hands be trained to do it for you. Very satisfying if you're willing to put in the effort. Full Review »
