Was #3 The sleeping Dragon? If so, it drove me absolutely crazy but I persisted and was glad I did. Have played it several times since, and it's easier. You get used to the controls over time...although I'll be VERY glad for the new one that doesn't have the tedious keyboard controls.

Thanks, Venus. I got past the really annoying sneaking section after all. If I get into one of these annoying timed sections again though, I might just watch it instead. :)

I think the worst thing about the controls was that they messed up your reflexes for other keyboard-controlled games.

Alright, darn this. The straw that broke the camels back was the infuriating church-part and then ANOTHER similar thing right on top of it. I will just watch it on youtube instead and hope that BS4 is better.

And it seems the fourth game is even worse...maybe I should gave just waited for the new one instead.

Ah well, thanks for all your input :)

4 is far better, stick with it. You don't have the sudden change of direction chase scenes and you don't have that extended sneak scene you did in #3.

There are a couple tricky moments but it really isn't that bad.

That's too bad that the developers made the controls so unwieldy. The ending was kinda cool....except for the stupid fighting the dragon part.

I wouldn't say BS4 was worse. The control system was still frustrating, though in a different way. They tried to give the choice between keyboard and mouse, but neither one worked well in all places, so I had to switch back and forth depending on the situation. At least the timed sequences weren't nearly as bad -- you didn't have to re-listen to reams of dialogue before you tried again. And no superabundance of crates for those that disliked them.

Yeah, I've gotten used to it now. It's quite a bit better, actually, I think.

I think it's worth finishing. Enjoyed the part in England and it has quite an exciting ending.

I liked BS3 (though not as much as the first two) and I'm one of the few people it seems who didn't loathe the crate puzzles (I found the stealth sections to be annoying more than once though!). So I would say yes, it's worth finishing, even if the stupid ending does rather spoil the whole mood of the game.

I'm at the Topkapi palace and I'm sad to see they didn't really learn anything from past mistakes. Still sneaking sections?! That's it, I'll just watch it on YT instead. Awful game design.
