I've only had a quick look at the game but I'm already put off. The graphics
and everything are fine, it's mainly the controls. I don't know why
I expected more from the PC version of the game. Perhaps because of the hype
and how long it took to come out. But as far as I can see it's just a console
port, like all the other RE games. There's no ingame save (typewriter again),
there are hardly any in game options, and the ingame control guide only lists
the gamepad controls (that should tell you something).
The worst thing by far, however are the keyboard controls. Keyboard and
gamepad only. No mouse support! Funny that there is none in what's supposed to
be the PC version. Is it really so much to ask? You use your WASD keys to move
forward and back and turn on the spot. R Shift to ready your weapon, and enter
to fire. The problem is with aiming. There's no auto aim, and you must use the
arrow keys to aim your weapon (here's where a mouse would have come in handy).
I found it extremely tricky. It's very sensitive and very difficult to aim
quickly at a moving target. Also, you can't sidestep, and as far as I can tell
you can't run. Nor can you move and shoot at the same time. All this adds up to
more frustration than fun.
In my opinion you'd have to be really, really keen to play this game to
overlook all the control issues. I'm not. Unless they add mouse support in the
future, it'll be another one shelved indefinately due to control issues. I'm
developing quite a little pile.
