New Moon UQ is awful

Thanks for the rollercoaster of continuous death with a shitty vehicle with bad controls and a speed up with a long cooldown.

Great idea. next time just have us spawn in a lava pool we can't get out of before the boss fight.

They were trying something new by using the rideroids at that point in the game, but it is obvious that the controls in the game just weren't suited for it. They do eventually have Mother without that section as a back-to-back with the final Episode 4 UQ Boss (whose normal UQ is actually one of my favorites, structure wise).

Luckily, the next UQ that we get with a vehicle portion (in Episode 6) is with upgraded AIS that control very well in three-dimensional space.

They tried something different back then. Just think of Ep4 as the vehicle episode. If I have to ride a Scooty-Puf Jr. to get to a chance at 14* then so be it.

EP5 also has an UQ with an aerial battle part of awful control. It's not vehicular, but the control is among the worst ones IMPO 😢

Surprising when you see who OP is.

Can't wait... lol

@Fiona-Respha Do you mean the birds versus bug after the underground escort? I personally like that one, but you are right, the controls can feel a bit clunky due to all the movement and pushing, especially if you haven't really used that form before running the UQ.

Yes, pretty much all the episode 4 content has been disappointing. Even the actual boss battle in this UQ manages to be super derivative and yet somehow worse than the boss battles it's emulating.

They may have been trying something new with the vehicles, but the controls should have been tested before being either refined or rejected.

So far it seems people are with OP on this one, nice try though.

I don't mind it. Set your control for ridroid to manual and you'll find it isn't bad at all.

haven't tried it myself yet but not a fan of ridroids. can't fault em for putting it in even if its not amazing. All the content is allll the content. Seems like most people agree it kinda sucks tho

well I don't have problems with the Ridroid part because I learned how to control instead of complaining, my only issue is that in certain points the boss reduces the speed and I end up being stuck right at front of the boss but nothing than using the brakes can't solve

That should be good though, you do a barrel roll to damage the 4 spheres / main boss if down.

Ridroids don't control well, but learn to get used to it lol There isn't much else to say.

Yes, that one. I hate the part even if I use that form most of the time in other quests 😆
