What the critics are saying about the controls is true, they're kind of frustrating sometimes. I woulds have actually rather used the gyro like in Starfox 64 3D rather than the touch screen to aim. Aside from that the game is good. This is the most cinematic Nintendo game I've seen aside from the Metroid series and, like Resident Evil Revelations, the graphics are amazing and vibrant. It gives me hope for future of other Nintendo franchises on the 3DS such as Zelda and Pokemon.
This game changes things up and gives you enough to keep the gameplay from becoming repetitive or boring. I could have easily seen this game being a 9 if it supported the circle pad pro.
3Ds has been needing a 'Killer App' for some time now and this one might just be it. Maybe. It certainly has the characteristics: designed around the hardware of the device, huge hype, lots of production. Problem is that the control is so difficult it is physically painful for some. It also seems to lack an intriguing story, which matters to some. But I still love this game and I'm happy to own it. In short: I don't see it as a reason to buy a 3Ds, but people with a 3Ds have no reason not to get it.
