  • The controller’s stick acts like a mouse which is not always ideal.
  • The menus are not easy to navigate from a visual point of view as well as added stress using it with a controller.
  • Hard to see items on the floor.
  • No feedback on using the map to send orders.
  • Pixel perfect button presses needed to on conversations.
  • The camera control overall is not ideal and feels clunky and always two steps behind.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
