Okay, so after spending five hours with this game over the last two nights, I've come to the conclusion that I thoroughly enjoy this game. BUT here's a couple of things that seem to get "in the way" of my reaching nirvana:
Left-stick sensitivity. Mainly the up-and-down sensitivity. It's just way too slow, and there's apparently no way to speed it up. It's most annoying when you're jumping in the air, targeting, shooting, and killing something on the ground beneath you (so you're looking down). Once you land on the ground, you're still looking down, and you have to hold "up" for five seconds just to be able to look around and target the other baddies around you. I don't know why they didn't make the sensitivity adjustable. I think I'm going to break off my analog stick one of these nights by pushing it too hard in a futile attempt to make my guy turn faster than he's programmed to go.
Targeting priority. Baddies are (apparently) of much higher priority than explodable barrels, so if there are two bad guys standing next to a barrel, you can't target the barrel to blow the guys up. It just targets the bad guys. I'm aiming directly at the barrel, but if I press left trigger it will target the bad guy next to the barrel, instead of the barrel. Also, it doesn't take distance into consideration -- if I've got a bad guy right next to me and a bad guy a half a kilometer away that hasn't even noticed me yet, of course I'm only concerned with the guy I'm actively fighting. Don't target bad guys in the distance that aren't even shooting at me if I'm in the middle of a battle with the guy right next to me.
