Heh... crystal meth. When you say tweak... is there anything else you can change besides the 0-100 sensitivity value? I've tried low, medium, and high values it still sucks compared to COD2. Is their an acceleration option that I didn't see? Cause now that I think about it accel would produce that kind of movement.
I haven't played COD 2 but I'm sure that game controls better than PDZ from what I hear.
You're not going to get the control you want but you can adjust it at least to what's the most comfortable setting for you. I actually slowed the setting down since the sluggish controls only get worse when you increase the aiming speed. I have the horizontal speed set at 40 and the vertical speed a bit slower at 30, this configuration seems best to me. One thing I noticed while adjusting the aiming was that part of the problem with aiming comes from your regular moving controls. Your character doesn't necessarily stop as soon as you command it to. So there's some kind of delay there. Why Rare didn't fix this is beyond me....

I love the fact that the enemies move around, it is not really done in many fps games and it should because it's realistic. In real life, enemies would run, duck or hide behind cover. But the aiming in this game is pathetic. It is the game's worst trait, in my opinion. It's the reason I barely play online(or offline for that matter) with this game, the aiming is too hard, and I end up realizing it hardly requires skill, more like luck. And that is not fun to me. I love COD2 online, but of its great aiming, it's all about skill with that game(too bad sniper rifle are the only thing used though). But even King Kong has better aiming than PDZ, and that's ridiculous.
Yeah moving around is a good point, who just wants to stand there and take a bullet in real life?
But you're right though, the sluggish controls do take away some skill when killing enemies.
I find myself unloading full clips just to kill a handful of baddies.
It's a good thing that the weapons are cool, otherwise that would really pull the game back.
I still like the game though, it's pretty addicting to me.
I can't wait to finish this one so that I can get started with COD2
