I'm constantly seeing where control/Interface decisions were obviously made to accomidate console controls and hardware limitations. I played through the original twice in the month before the release of this and just couldn't pull my self away from it, now this comes out and I feel dreary and meloncoly and have to force myself to sit and play a pale hollow reproduction of a truly great game. I know this is a good game and I'll keep plugging away at it but it's a chore.
Just curious exactly what decisions you're talking about. Can you give some specific examples?

I loved the original, it's in my top 3 games ever released, and I'm super happy with how this new one plays. It's pretty much everything I could have wanted from a remake.
