And it was made by the people that did Gran Tursimo, sigh... I read a review
of the American version and wasn't impressed with it, because the review said
the same thing that you said about the controls. So, all you do is lock &
shoot and breeze through the game, wheres the fun and challenge in that? Lock
on is a good feature, but if done wrong, can make the game way too easy. I
don't like super difficult where the games unbeatable, I like a beatable
challenge. Hope Macross VFX-2 is better then Omega Boost and the first VFX
game, which I bought and was disappointed with.
