More intuitive?

Dpad = movement.
Button 1 = Shot.
Button 2 = Bomb/Sword.

What could be more intuitive than that?

More responsive? You're talking about pressing a digital button vs waving a stick around.

Also, analogue sticks for STG's are awful. They're perfect for adventure games and FPS's, but useless for STG's/vs. fighting games.

Not really missing out, the games aren't great, Chaos Fields probably the best out of the bunch.
Wii controls would be terrible too!

Chaos Field is very franetic at the end it's quite a lot of fun, Karous is also quite innovative and looks great. Bolting on Wii motion controls doesn't really appeal to me, in my opinion you can't beat the responsiveness of a good control pad or arcade stick (like the nice Wii Hori one).

Ok have learned some more details about this release of Karous:

Karous Wii will include Chaos Field and Radirgy as one whole package.

Karous will also have motion control of some sort I think due to the nature of the game it'll be some kind of motion to operate the ship/charcter sword.

I agree totally, hopefully they'll be quite a few choices of control, using the GC pad would be nice

For all you lucky Jap/chipped Wii owners Karous is available for Preorder on Play-Asia, it's not out for ages though

Using the X arcade-stick with the GC adapter would be nicer.
Irrelevant anyway as I have it on DC :roll:
