People who say that PW controls like shit are literally out of touch with the HD version. It has modern non PSP controls.
I played that version and think it controls like shit. So that is not true.
I'm curious then, what's your opinion on MGS 4/Gears of War/other third person games with extremely similar controls?
They're fine? It's mostly the awkward lock-on, and things like having to press a button to get into cover, just the weird stuff that isn't in the other MGS games. I really couldn't stand the controls and interface.
Wow, you really nailed Godot's smile in particular! Gant's great too, nice job.
I enjoyed the write-up. All the quirks of the game's legal system in particular never really bothered me much until the last game on the 3DS, where suddenly I found the illogical nature of it all quite frustrating. Also, it seemed like nothing ever mattered much because there would always be some 11th hour development that changes everything you thought you knew. Maybe all the games were like this and I never noticed, but I got the impression the 3DS game was a lot more far-fetched in its plotting than the first 3 games.
