I really dislike touch controls when it involves moving a character around in a traditionally d-pad centric space. I feel the same about the touch screen when using my iPhone in its vertical position. I just end up typing the wrong thing or cause my avatar to impale himself on a nearby spike.
Why can't they just let me play it with the d-pad like it was 1989?
Hey, it could just be me getting progressively worse at video games, but I just feel like these types of controls are meant for, well, gamers who aren't me. I'll still play them though.
