Normally, when a game has crappy unintuitive controls it’s a deal breaker. After all, if you can’t control the game properly what’s the point in playing? This is not the case with Octodad: Dadliest Catch. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. Dadliest Catch may have the worst control scheme of any game I’ve ever played, and that’s the entire point.
Being a father is already a challenge for many men, but the difficulty factor increases exponentially when you're actually a octopus masquerading as a human. If you thought mowing the lawn was a pain before, you should try doing it with tentacles instead of arms and legs.
