The foes block and dodge and strafe around you like seasoned war pros.
For instance, when strafing, the lower portion of the body turns in the direction of the strafe (naturally).
Missiles are coming from all over the place, every ship known to man is firing lasers at you and no matter where you jump or where to strafe to or how fast you fly around, everything seems to be aimed at you.
You walk and strafe using the left analog stick, whereas you turn and aim with the right analog stick.
Shifting from a straight run to a strafe is seamless and firing and running/walking just is amazing.
