You make me wish I hadn't abandoned the game as quickly as I did when I tried it a few years ago. I remember the controls being so junk that I simply couldn't force myself to go on. Perhaps I was expecting the fluidity of, say, Halo's controls and was disappointed to find a small dot of a reticle, with touchy and sensitive movement. I do recall being surprised with the variety of weaponry, but ultimately found the combat banal. I never played the second game because of this experience.

Well, it won't work for everyone. I didn't mind the simple combat or the control response so much, but it did take some getting used to. I had to restart my playthrough at least once. I basically recommend that anyone playing the game do a sloppy playthrough the first time, just to get acclimated with the mechanics.
