Let us know what you think :)
Looks great, but it's yet another developer that hates key rebinds, as there's no way to change them, and it only lists the stupid controller's keys instead! -3 stars for that alone! (I'm not certain if I have to unplug it in order to get the Keyboard prompts though, as I don't want to restart my PC just to get my stinking controller back on player one!) It's 2017! WHERE'S THE RE-BINDABLE KEYS!?
That is one of my main deal-breakers for FP games as controllers SUCK for precision shooting, and I am a horrible typist
so the SHIFT/Ctrl/Alt is too awkward a stretch as too many idiot developers assume everyone on the planet uses that idiotic combo!
Q/W/E/Space = Sprint/Forward/Jump/Use
is a whole lot easier on your carpals than SHIFT/W/SPACE/E especially for using Alt/Ctrl/Shift for reactionary controls, which is why it's infuriating when developers cluelessly and lazily neglect to include re-binds even in the stinking config files!
I will be back after a bit to give more info when I end up playing a bit, though I have to start back in the intro again because SURPRISE
there's no manual save in a stinking open-world game!...But I am willing to put that aside for now so I can give you guys a better look on the actual gameplay!
Oh yeah, it seems I have to start the game via the folder as galaxy uses the start launcher that is an elevated process so my game crashes while using it!
================================ EDIT First Impressions:
It's really incredible how you can zoom from out in space to pin-point cities, and when the buildings crash there's amazing details of first responders, the screams and of people running along with seeing them scatter, and cars speeding away!
Unfortunately most of the game relies on precision in both flight and it's shooting the small red targets on the aliens so being stuck with a controller makes the gameplay suffer a LOT as trying to steer with the Right stick and aim while shooting fast moving targets is crap, plus you move too fast that you end up getting disoriented as you're too damn close to even hit them, so you have to swing around to even find them!
Unless they patch in rebindable keys then I'll just shelve this game as it is unplayable for me, as the keyboard/mouse is far superior for this type of genre, however, if this was top-down/isometric 3rd person like Hob, then this would work well with a controller...
I made the mistake of being too damn hasty with this game though, as the first thing I look for with FPGames are rebindable keys, and then denuvo, but since this is here on gog, I didn't need to worry about that! So to sum up, if you're a person that plays a lot of FPGames with a controller or you use the default keys, (which are a mystery as they're not even shown during the tutorial)
then knock yourself out, but for me, it's a deal-breaker, 'cept I already bought it!
This is why you don't buy games the second they launch.
