So, funny story. At first, I thought Panzer Dragoon on Saturn was very clunky. But as it turns out, it isn’t really compatible with the analogue control of the 3D Saturn Pad. Its analogue mode was actually built around the Saturn Mission Stick.
Using the analogue mode on the 3D Saturn Pad will actually make the game nearly impossible to beat since it has a different gate than the Mission Stick and you basically cannot aim in the corners of the screen. (LOL) For years, I have struggled with this game because of this reason.
Then I tried playing with a regular digital Saturn controller and it was SO MUCH
BETTER. But it’s still just digital control for what really is a 3D game that would benefit from analogue. And that means moving the reticule around smoothly as intended really isn’t possible with 8 way controls. It’s doable, but not ideal.
The Mission Stick is going for around $150 in decent condition. What do you guys think - does it work well with Panzer Dragoon, or should I just stick with a standard 8 way controller?
