Brothers in arms controls?

What control scheme do you use? I find them to be very difficult. Any tips also?

i use the default one .. where left is the analog pad for forward/strafin and right finger swipe anywhere ala mouse ...

i find that using finger on the left gives me greater accuracy and thumb to swipe and shoot ... managed to fin all levels at elite mode with this

I also use the default scheme...i use my left thumb for the analog pad, and my right thumb to aim and fire. i find it helps to constantly be rotating your view with your right thumb on the right hand side of the screen, so that you are ready in advance to aim...after a little practice i find this quite comfortable and very playable

another tip is do not treat yr virtual pad like a real one. i find lightly rubbin the screen to move yr analog pad is most effective and get comfortable with moving forwrad in a straight line ... i think diff ppl has a diff feel for this depenind on yr thumb/finger ... so practice a bit before u head off the more diff missions.

i use the same combo for real soccer and hero sparta as well and both works the same ... aka gameloft 3d games

how exactly does it suck?
the dual-analog seemed perfect for shoting {imo} but then again i have massive, nickel-sized thumbs xD

but, to each unto his own, you basically hafta find out which one works the best, or which one sucks the least, however you wuld put it.
