    Played through DQIX fully twice, and with the summer drought, it's back to basics. Yeah, I know...Chaos Theory is kind of a dog among DS games, but hey, I'm bored. I've actually attempted to play this game about three times before, but gave up in the first mission. I dig stealth action, but the camera is just so hard to get used to. I'm not sure if it's because I'm left-handed, but I'm having quite a bit of trouble in some areas. Perhaps the most difficult thing is when you have to follow a guard while he's patrolling. Since you have to hold the L button to move silently, it's really hard to also move the camera at the same time that you're moving Sam (with the D-pad). Any tips from folks who have played through the game?

    Thanks

    Yeah, man. This is a pretty old DS game at this point. I usually go back to the oldies during the summer droughts.

    The DS version is just broken, it was made for N-Gage and then lazily ported. Its not bad on N-Gage actually but still nothing amazing.

    Think its being "remade" for 3DS, though this time it might not be Gameloft doing it.

    hmmm..I didn't have any problems with the game...pretty nice too if I might add!
    I remember buying it along with ridge racer in a bundle for 20 euros...best goddamn move ever made

    would have finished the game but I got stuck in a stage and didn't know where to go.

    DON'T GET CAUGHT!

    It's a stealth based game. Ammo is scarce and should only be used in an emergency.

    Guess you didn't read my original post thoroughly. I was looking for advice about the controls, not how to approach stealth action. But thanks.
