To be accurate, twin stick + trackball. Fixed 8-)

Actually you can use a Dreamcast Twin Stick + mouse to get a configuration that mimics the arcade controls... at least as close as you can get without modding.

I thought the same until I got a kb+m.

Used to cause frustration and anger, now I feel like I'm the king of outtrigger.

Very very different game when played with proper controls

My friend got this game for his birthday in 2001. We eagerly set up a 4 player deathmatch with four of us friends playing. My three friends despised the controls - I didn't have any problem with them from the get go and don't mind them. In fact I kind of like the idea of using the triggers to turn.

Sadly for me it's not just the controls that are frustrating, there are other little things that annoy me.

1: Most of the maps are either way too small and open, or are way too convolutedly designed to be really enjoyable. I feel very few stages in the game get a right mix of size and variety of closed/open sections.

2: The music doesn't really fit the fast paced action of the game.

3: The sound effects are pretty bland and boring, they lack personality and punch.

4: The unskippable "3, 2, 1, GO" countdown in every stage and even in VS multiplayer is just an annoying time waster.

5: Respawning takes way too long, like 3-4 seconds. Super annoying, especially in timed missions.

6: The fact you need to reload your machine guns so does not fit in an arena shooter.

7: The "assign the weapons to the character" feature I think just makes the game more unfair. You are stuck with the selected weapons, you can't change them during a match, so if you suck with the selected weapons, you're screwed. Yeah, you can pick up a weapon sometimes, but that weapon can run out and you're back to the selected weapon, from what I experienced.

Unfortunately it would seem so.

Said twin because it's the same stick than the VOOT twin sticks even if you need only one, not any stick. I had the idea of using a ps/2 trackball with mouse adapter but haven't found the latter yet.
