To hold the fire button and keep shooting while I move the reticule towards the enemy is a great level of control that Max Payne should have. It's a shame you guys can't see that right now, but I'm sure if they ever release the update addressing this I bet a lot of people here would give reviews praising the new improved controls. Just like people who saw no problem with Mass Effect Infiltrator's original controls, but now are going gaga over the new update.
Aiming while shooting is a must for FPS and for cover-based shooters. The thing about Max Payne on the PC is that you often end up moving rather than aiming; on hardcore difficulty you simply don't have time to place your shots and instead just weave your way (in bullet time or otherwise) through the pack of enemies, firing from the hip, as it were. That experience is not that different from the current set up on iOS. I don't think aiming-while-shooting would add much to the gameplay.

As you said, we can agree to disagree. But I would say that any action game fan who is waiting till the controls are "fixed" is doing him or herself a disservice.

alright chico....but let me ask....what do you expect? this is iOS....and what do you suggest they do as developers...please explain your solution since you took the time to make a Youtube video about it....Iam a gamer of all platforms and spend avid time on each system....and all i can say is...I have a iphone...for iphone games...a 3ds to play great 3d games....a psp and vita to rock out to sony games.....and thats how it goes...
If you went to sooo much extent to upload a video kinda insinuating that they did a wack job on Max Payne mobile's controls to the world...then plz revel the solution....or go play a diff platform man....all Im sayin is if rapid fire while jumping or during Bullet-time is really breaking your stones why not say "O well" and go play Unit 13 on the vita....

and yes i find it AMAZING and Enjoyable that I have freakin Max Payne on my phone and ipad...and have no issue or challenge using tap to shoot...and can do without rapid fire while jumping BS.....NICE JOB ROCKSTAR! First GTA3 and now this! ...Im not worthy

I expect the same level of control other iOS shooters - like the Max Payne clone, 9mm - offer me. Nothing more.

I did explained the easy solution on the polite email I sent the developers and reproduced here, albeit it's a pretty obvious solution if you watch the whole video.

I wonder if you could mod this game like GTA3? If so can someone see if they can re-enable the bullet casings

i 2nd the mate there, aiming and shooting is a must for TPS too, and in the PC you could do both, i dont understand why you cant just drag the aim when you press the fire button, it would add A LOT to the gameplay, cause the way it is it feels clunky and unnatural.

It seems to me like you are, since you're recommending to others not to buy the game yet until the controls are "fixed". IMO your letter came across as a little rude though, it seemed to me that you were trying to tell them how to do their job.

But in saying that, shooting and aiming at the same time would actually be a good improvement in the controls. For instance, shoot dodging and then moving the reticule whilst shooting would be improved due to it, because at the moment you have to shootdodge, aim, shoot, aim and shoot again, which can be a bit difficult considering you're not in the air for long.

I still think the game can be enjoyed in it's current state, but that would make it more enjoyable and easier to play.
