I didn't even know there were aiming problems for some people. Didn't even notice. Guess I just adjusted.

Edit: @ BlackMask

Yeah, single player. Patch in a day according to the ND forums.

Yeah, the aiming felt like U2 to me.

inveni02424d ago

My problem is that I can't figure out how to switch which shoulder the camera looks over. Didn't it used to be L3?

Christopher2424d ago (Edited 2424d ago )

Hit start and there should be an option to turn this back on somewhere in there.

inveni02424d ago

I'll try that. I just looked in the manual, and it says L1+L3, so I figure it must be a setting. Why the H would this not be on by default? Crazy.

norman292424d ago

Its in the options menu from the main screen, turn on/off ability to switch shoulder aim, tbh it should be on as default but meh

@ cgoodno,

The aiming doesn't feel like U2. I had to turn the sensitivity way up to nearly maximum because the aiming feels a bit washed out. U2's aiming was a bit tighter.

Christopher2424d ago

@BattleAxe: you'll note I said "to me" whereas you stated your opinion as fact. Now, I base my opinion on the fact that I played U2 again just this weekend to prepare for U3, and it feels the same to me.

sonnyz2423d ago

This is good news for me. I was getting really negative about my aiming skills. I just kept telling my wife that I'm starting to really suck at aiming.

Dee_912423d ago

im too hooked on the hand to hand combat
this s#!t is crazy good I wanted more hand to hand so im happy.
I kinda just adjusted to the shooting.But i think when I play on crushing and online im gonna need to change the settings.

I hope this patch dont make aiming too easy and also aiming from the hip with the ak 47 at close range is a bit over powered.It takes more shots to kill aiming down sites.It seem like aiming from hip with ak = automatic headshot.Thats the only gun I experienced that with

crxss2423d ago

the aiming in the SP is stiff. i haven't compared it to U2's SP just cause i haven't played U2 in forever. it's worse cause the MP has had perfect aiming since the first beta and then those who got the game on day 1 play it for the SP and it's aiming is just bad. it's impossible to make a circle motion while holding L1.

JBaby3432423d ago

I haven't noticed in single player but I jumped into the MP last night and couldn't hit the freaking floor. I was never good at UC2's MP so I just attributed it to that. I'll have to stick to UC for SP and Battlefield for MP.

ThanatosDMC2423d ago

I disagree. The aiming is too slow and Elena looks Asian or her eye lids got attacked by wasps.

RedDead2423d ago

The reviews never mentioned it, besides Eurogamer

Never mind it will be sorted

tigertron2424d ago

All I know is that aiming feels much stiffer compared to UC1 and 2, I tried with high sensitivity and that didn't really do anything.

blizzard_cool2424d ago

I have the same problem. The game is fantastic and I just got to chapter 6 but I'd love it if the aiming was more like UC2, not so stiff.

ironfist922424d ago

Yea, i was suprised to, upto chapter 9 or something, and throughout the entire game I was missing so many shots, which was weird considering the smooth aiming in both 1 and 2. I hope they patch it asap, but aside from that, FREAKING AWESOME GAME!

FFXI1012423d ago

I did that too and didn't really do much for me. Aiming and shooting is still harder compare to UC2.

MisterAV2424d ago

Lack of smoothness, that's the problem for me. Still a great game but I prefer if they correct the little issues...
