Wish Nintendo would release the first Prime without enforced motion controls instead of what they did with the Prime trilogy
This is why us sane types own not only the two GameCube games but also Corruption and the Trilogy. :smug

My parents lost my gamecube copy when they moved :'(

I just think dual analog are not intuitive like mouse and keyboard or IR camera controls are. With IR you feel like you're actually aiming at the screen.
I don't disagree, I've long disliked dual analog on the Dual Shock especially because of how close the sticks are, them being offset on Xbox controllers has always helped me tremendously, and other than having to find places to rest my arms I quite enjoyed a lot of Wii IR dependent games despite the problems. I was just surprised that even in a totally misleading "vertical slice" video, Ubisoft still had shots where the Wiimote's physical limitations were shown. (Most notably as he comes up the stairs, turning and looks upwards in the first video, it's the one instance where dual-analog would be able to do it faster as there's no real world 3D space needing to be considered.)

which setting on MP3 did you use?

the wiimote basically physically can't handle the situation i'm describing because of how it acts as both the receiver in real world 3D space and the pointer within the on-screen bounding box (which itself is controlled by the prior)

MP3 you can shrink the bounding box to almost nothing and use the lock-on to break out of it and re-center it, but you'll still turn far slower (and/or infinitely faster in an uncontrollable way) in the game than you do in the prior two games, it's also probably why so many of the environments are comparatively linear except for single-plane one-on-few fights

dual analog or other setups don't have this issue because the center is the physical center of the stick, though any PC player still sees the turning in videos as usually choppy and slow, it can at least move equally fast in two different Z directions since it's not relying on an actual physical real world location check

I don't remember exactly which setting, I used a very small reticule and the sensitivity was medium, I guess, so it didn't jitter unintentionally but was highly responsive. I think the turning speed was fine, didn't feel any slower than dual analog controls, which feel tank-like to me for FPS anyway. At least in the context of that game, it wasn't a hindrance at all and added to the experience. The only part I didn't like was the fucking waggle gestures to turns door knobs and such, that was wonky.

I just think dual analog are not intuitive like mouse and keyboard or IR camera controls are. With IR you feel like you're actually aiming at the screen.

Meanwhile, FF VII totally busted the review scale:

i don't know if the MotionPlus can fix this, the only two FPSes to use it were The Conduit 2 and Red Steel 2, which both have the same problem...the Conduit doesn't require MotionPlus so it obviously can't rely on it, and Red Steel 2 seems to use the extra sensor capabilities to allow you to leave the screen entirely to use your sword and immediately return to the center of the bounding box to aim, though the dash did seem like they could have utilized it in other directions as a quick turn feature

I really liked MP3's controls at the time, but man I really don't care to go back because of the motion controls. Wish Nintendo would release the first Prime without enforced motion controls instead of what they did with the Prime trilogy on wii(and wii u?).

It's Nintendo so I doubt that's happening.
