They can be controlled via both methods. Admittedly my impressions were early so I could easily have missed something but I had a lot of trouble with it.
Most of the time you move as a group, but you can only take cover behind objects by moving individual soldiers. There's no pausing to move troops so that gets pretty messy during combat and targetting is done automatically. There didn't seem to be a way to take cover before combat and draw enemies in front of you out, they simply stay in cover until you're in range so you're left running up to them to "activate" them and then run back and take cover individually and manually so you don't die.
There must be a better way to do things though and I'll freely admit I could be wrong. The rest of the controls wasn't too bad. You have your cards that can be used by dragging them out from the menu at the bottom of the screen. You tap on objects to interact with them and the menus are perfectly fine. It's just the one issue, but it's pretty game-breaking for me at least.
I definitely recommend trying it out though, hopefully I'll be in the minority and others will enjoy it much more
