SummaryThe Controls Are Unforgivable
The GoodIt's Heavy Barrel! It's a classic. The game is a ton of fun.
The BadThe problem is the barrel rotation. Instead of pointing the right analog directly where you want to shoot, you use that analog be pressing left or right to rotate the barrel 45 degrees in that direction for each press.
So in other words, you're moving up and pointing up and you wanna shoot the guy coming at you from behind, right? You either press the right analog RIGHT - RIGHT - RIGHT - RIGHT and then shoot or you press it LEFT - LEFT - LEFT - LEFT and then hope he stayed very still for the last few seconds.
I love Heavy Barrel, but they've GOT to fix this crap!
