The controls are great and easy!
Hold "A" to create a cricle and select the units in it. It is really simple.
There is kind of an "Autoaim" for the units so you are jumping easily from unit to unit. "LB" to select all units at once. Double click "A" on a unit all units of this kind are selected. If you want to jump to a place where the action is press "Left Stick" and you are spot on.
To jump straight to your base press "up" on the d-pad. So when you are in a battle and you want to produce reinforcements you press "up" on the d-pad, build your units, press the left stick and you are back at action. This takes like 2-3 seconds.
"X" to move / attack units. "Y" for a special attack that can be upgraded. Marines are throwing grenades as a special attack, with the first upgrade they get a rocket launcher for example. but you can't throw grenades all the time. There is a load time to throw the next one. A Warthog just rolls over the enemy as a special attack.
That are basically all controls. It is awesome.
The CGI-stuff is unbeatable. excellent.
Now ALL I am hoping for is that Ensembles will care for the balance of the game. But so far this game fucking rocks.
I will preorder it right now.
There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.
A moment of silence would be appreciated.
