I'm playing through CoD even now, and the camera is even worse than anything I've dealt with in 64 games. LoI's fixed camera doesn't always frame things well, either.>awful level design
The level design of the PS2 games is so bad, so repetitive and dull, as to make the other parts of their game design worse because of it. That's not getting into how LoI in particular sends you back and forth all over the place, on foot, sometimes with no real direction, making things even more of a slog than they would be otherwise, and I say all of this as someone who likes the PS2 games.>shitty controls
The only thing, if even, that's bad about the N64 games in this regard is the first time you accidentally fling yourself into a poisonous river doing a dodge from hitting too many buttons at once, and that's something you quickly build the muscle memory for. That aside, I'd actually agree with you to an extent about CoD and LoI being better, though I do love keeping my air momentum while attacking.
