Since Faith is constantly pursued, she is always in need of quickly evading her foes. Oftentimes players will be sprinting across rooftops spring-boarding off a crate onto a walkway and then jumping to a bar that they can swing off onto another rooftop. As players run around they can see Faith's arms swinging around. When she jumps or falls the force is felt through the controller's rumble, adding accurate weight and feeling to her actions. The way Faith moves is very believable, and every object reacts how it should."
