Its just an indie-style game. I would love this. I hate tablet controls... they suck. These type of games are made for dual analogs. Since its made by the Halo people, it will actually have some polish behind it compared to say, Gatling Gears, which was pretty mediocre.
They are obviously making it better for the consoles since those are real systems. Added an expansion, co-op mode and probably upping the graphics with better controls. --- GT: ZiiX360 PSN: BoxFighter85 PC: i7 930@4Ghz | EX58 UD5 | GTX 460 SLI | 8GB DDR3 | 500GB Spinpoint | Vertex 2 180 SSD | Cooler Master HAF X | VG236H
I assume this is to hold people over until Halo 5. I'm prolly in the minority on this, but I'm way more excited about Destiny than Halo 5. If anything, I'll play Halo 5 to pass time until Destiny :) --- 33 things to know about X1: http://www.oxm.co.uk/61886/features/the-xbox-one-33-things-you-need-to-know/ DR3, AC4, Xbox Fitness (1-Year free), KI3 (F2P)
It's a top down shooter, on a big enough screen it controls well enough, although the first time I tried it was on a phone and it was clunky as hell imo (I have large thumbs though) --- FC: 2921-9087-2265
