Brothers In Arms Revisited
I wonder if this has happened to anyone else...one of the first games I bought was BIA, as I am a huge History nut (teach it actually). I enjoyed the game, but found it exceedingly difficult primarily because of the controls. I would try to play here and there, but it took me months of 5-10 minute sessions just to get past the Normandy campaign. As new games came out, and I needed to clear room for Myst, I finally broke down and took BIA off my phone. As I played more games with a virtual d-pad, and especially as I played and finished (and LOVED) Assassin's Creed, I wondered if I would find the control system in BIA more forgiving since I was more familiar with it. I re-installed, and as I hoped, playing this game is like a whole new experience. I wasn't a savvy enough iDevice gamer when I first got this game to fully "get it". Now, I'm not saying the controls are perfect, they aren't, but as I play more virtual d-pad games (especially Gameloft's) like AC ad Terminator Salvation, I'm coming to appreciate what a really good game BIA is. If anyone else has a similar experience, let me know.
