Just played the PS3 demo and maybe it was because of the controller, but the controls sucked.

Trying to drive and aim with the analog sticks was ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ as hell.

That's the core of this game though. It's basically a "twin stick shooter." I'll likely be playing with a 360 controller because I think it'd be awkward with mouse and keyboard. I imagine you use WASD to move and the mouse to aim.

Yeah, definitely meant for twin sticks. It sounds similar to Guardian of the Light in that sense, and the 360 controller on PC was great for that.

Aiming with the mouse might be better, but trying to DRIVE with the keyboard would suck. You need analog for that.

I played it on 360, the controls where awkward at first with the speed of the action/control/car handling needed and the shooting but after a few minutes i was fine with it. Personally i'd hate to play a twinstick on a PS3 due to stick placement but then again i prefer the 360 controller so its probably just perception/familiarity.

The only problem I found was that there is no strafe, obviously given that you are in a car and not on foot, but that did hamper the twin stick shooteryness of it.
Maybe a dedicated reverse button would be nice, just my thoughts.

I think i'm going to cancel my pre-order then as I didn't like playing with a controller at all.
