I've never outrightly said GOTY, I've always had qualifiers like "contender for..." tacked on - but I think we'll do an AusGamers GOTY piece in December - just because we've been dallying in reviews this year and the whole GOTY thing seems to be a pretty solid topic here :)

advanced lock-on aim, more sensitive and no auto-aim - way better

Maybe I'm just lazy, but other than on bosses I find turning off auto-aim more trouble than its worth. Reducing the "dead zone" size was also something I quickly reversed, as holding my hand perfectly still is not my idea of fun.

In terms of the game itself, I found the first bit kind of lame but once you reach the first planet it gets going and is an excellent gaming experience.

Control-wise, the motion-based 'actions' like turning keys, pulling levers etc is kind of stupid, but the core aiming mechanic works exceptionally well and is almost worth buying for that alone.
