Eh... Driver's controls?

I just played the free version of Driver (one mission? Really? :|), and the controls were bothering me a little bit I usually play with a virtual stick, and I was glad to see that when using the virtual stick, the handbrake is mapped to the right side of the screen. I want the e-brake to be separate from the movement controls.

The problem with the joystick is that it's not nearly sensitive enough. I had it to the far left of the screen, and my car was barely turning.

So the D-pad is much better in that aspect... but the e-brake is still mapped to it.

In the full version of the game, is there any way I can customize where the controls are? Like could I have just the left and right directions on the d-pad on the left, and the e-brake above the drive/brake controls? Or will I just have to get used to it?

there is no option to customize it, but you will get used to it, trust me. I play perfectly using the dpad controls and have not experienced a problem yet. I just use the drift buttons a lot.

My favorite game is doodle army, so check out the awesome game's twitter

Lol, are you serious? Gameloft's gonna make a 400 MB perfect-port top-notched graphics featured game 99 cents because you didn't have enough in the lite version?

This game was so totally beast and worth the 6.99. I bought it the day it was released and beat it like a week or so ago. I have no problem with the controls, and loved pretty much everything about this game.

Recent purchases: Pac man CE, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, Mecho Wars, and Chaos Rings.
Upcoming Games I plan to get: Splinter Cell, GoF2

Okay, thank you for the input

Is the full game ever really difficult?
