I have to admit, when I first played this game, the graphics looked so crisp
Then, as I started playing, the controls felt "crisp". If there's any way to describe it. The older controls were more fluid.
Honestly, I think it's the HD that is changing the "feel" to the game. There are a lot of compaints, the control is not THAT much of a change-up, but old-timers will notice something. New players might actually appreciate the way this one plays out.
