Likewise, it was simple to move aiming controls from a mouse to the controllers' right control sticks. Olander even compared the console control scheme to the dual-stick shooter genre, which allows players to fire projectiles simply by holding the right stick in a certain direction. It's a common genre on consoles, and that's an apt comparison, although in Guardians of Middle-earth you have to hold down the right trigger as well.

"We got them really refined down. We even have two different control schemes," Olander boasted, hinting at an advanced scheme in addition to the vanilla one I used.
