The sport itself the builders didn’t attempt to reinvent the wheel. The controls are tight, easy, and simple to get used to. You possibly can take cowl, lean round it, and slide into place. The slide isnt almost as useful because it could possibly be, and I forgot about it very often all through the sport perhaps used a few times.
