Anyway i got shot of kid icarus, blockbusters give me £30 trade in, thats slightly more than i actually paid for it
will just leave it on the account untill the next 'must have' comes out!
Glad you made a profit mate, but I'm sad you let it go! Believe it or not, the controls really work perfectly on the default settings. I don't know how it happened, but they just clicked for me and now I just wouldn't go back. They are on a par with a WASD and mouse PC set-up for accuracy.
I read a review of the game in Nintendo Gamer I think it was, and they said that Nintendo asks a new control system of gamers. Its hard to get the hang of - I tried other button-based set-ups, but eventually went back to the deafult set-up and stuck with it as I had faith in Nintendo knowing best, and the fact that the button control systems are crap.
If Nintendo ever get round to releasing a demo, give it a go and you might get on a little better with it. The game is amazing once it all works out. I can't put it down in all honesty!

Ah, that's a moot point for me as I can't use/see the 3D effect so I just have it switched off all the time anyway. I haven't got a problem holding it at all, just hold it exactly the same way as I do when I used to play Metroid Prime Hunters a lot, or whenever I've played the DS Modern Warfare games,
I have gotten the positioning nailed now and have put a silly amount of hours into the game now. Like I said above, it does ask a significant time investment and a period of adjustment from the player. Once that is sorted, the game offers hours and hours of fantastic gameplay online and off.
