    Keep your expectations in line, realize this is a handheld game, and you will probably have a fun time with IronFall Invasion, much like I did.

I only made it a few minutes into the demo, but the controls are so unbearably bad that you couldn't pay me to play further.

    The controls are utter garbage - there are two modes, C-Stick and touch screen. The C-Stick on the New 3DS isn't suitable for aiming, so getting the crosshair to settle on something is an exercise in futility. You will find the C-stick isn't sensitive enough while looking (it takes over 2 seconds to do a 360) and is too imprecise when aiming. Touch-screen aiming *should* work (it worked very well for Metroid Prime: Hunters) but the *maximum* sensitivity is unbearably slow. Unless you're frantically swiping across the screen, you can barely even get the crosshair to move. The touch screen aiming is also implemented the wrong way - it should behave like an analog stick (further from the center making you turn faster) but instead it's implemented like a mouse (requiring you to repeatedly swipe your finger along the screen to turn).

    In the campaign, gameplay is frequently interrupted by stupid cutscenes. You enter a room, and there's a cutscene of enemies slowly plodding into the room and walking into position. Your character just lets them get situated before bothering to attack them? You press a button, there's a clunky cutscene. You kick down a door, there's a clunky cutscene.

    The voice 'acting' is excruciating, the graphics aren't anything to write home about, the weapons are generic, the enemies are extremely bland, and the pace is slower than a crawl.
