Kid Icarus Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS is a reasonably solid game filled with unique content, it’s a shame it’s almost completely ruined by its awkward control scheme.
Thank God we have writers from the financial post to tell us these things! I recommend that you spend time with the controls before you just write them off. It seems that people are so babied by set control schemes that they refuse to accept learning a new control scheme as an inherent challenge of the game.
I'm a freelancer. I write for a number of mainstream publications and run my own opinions based video game blog. I spent a great deal with the game's controls, I just didn't like them. I felt they weren't intuitive and that they were extremely awkward. I'm not alone on this either, a bunch of other reviewers have similar thoughts on the game. I really did take the time to try to get used to them.
