Many of you have expressed their feelings about the lack of a true point and click interface for the movement, but I have nothing against it. In fact, I like it better to control the character directly and only use the mouse for objects. It worked excellent in Wallace and Gromit. As the producers pointed out in another topic, it's nearly impossible to make the character move "off screen" with a point and click interface. Plus, the games look much more cinematic this way, a thing that I greatly enjoy.
My complain is that the CONTROLLERS are just messed up. Why on earth make the game playable with a controller, if you still need the mouse to use objects? It just defies my comprehension. I wanted to use the XBOX 360 controller for ToMI, playing it away from the PC, but it seems that this will not be possible (I don't have the full game yet, I'm waiting for the DVD to come out). Wallace and Gromit had full support for the controller (probably because it came out on the 360 also). Now it just annoys me that I will not be able to play it properly with a controller. Who ever heard of a mouse and controller combination? "WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?"
Is there any chance for this abominable control scheme to change for the next episodes and have full controller support? The game would be just perfect if proper control for gamepads would be implemented. By proper control I mean the hotspot cycling system, just like in Wallace and Gromit! No mouse pointer whatsoever!
