Broken controls.

Excellent game destroyed by poor programming.

I am trying to play this game and am constantly sabotaged by poor controls. (Playing the PC version) "take cover" (Q) & "climb" (Space) are constantly choosing to switch roles when I need pinpoint timing.

I wanna play this as "ghost" as possible, but controls flat out prevent me from being able to do it.

Anyone else having trouble with this?

Get a controller. You're in 2013. You don't play third person games on a computer without a controller.

Seriously? That is your solution? So what you are saying is that developers need not concern themselves with optimizing games, and removing bugs? If this is 2013, and the ONLY way to play third-person game is with a controller, then the future of gaming is bleak.

@ Fandango_Letho I just saw your signature banner... yeah now I get it... wouldn't expect anything different from the likes of you. You do know that there are people that play games on PC, right?

What a tool... a controller is absolutely horrible for first AND third person games, get over it. OP: I also found the controls acting kind of weird sometimes but it's not that bad, it never got me killed yet, programming controls for such a game is hard work, but I'm pretty satisfied with them.

a controller isn't such a bad idea really. The game doesn't have horrible control btw

Thats BullSh*t.

A  It depends on the person and B how they made the game.

People are all hype with controllers and shoots because they have autoaim.

For some games people prefer Keyboard others like controller.

I change depending on the game.,...

For this game its gonna be a keyboard.. its alot faster
