Controls, UI, conclusion

Controls

Controls and movement feel “floaty” in Dementium, much like in 90s shooters. I disliked it at first, but soon grew accustomed to it and had no real complaints. The important thing is it all feels smooth.

Keys and buttons can be rebound freely: I tested left and right Ctrl, Shift, and Alt, in addition to various mouse buttons and other keys (up, down, Delete, etc), all of which were responsive.

Options to adjust mouse sensitivity and invert controls are available.

Controllers are supported for those that might prefer them, and/or have a couch-based setup. On a related note, Big Picture Mode is supported, too.

User interface

The UI is clean, simple, easy to use, and optimized just fine for high resolutions.

During gameplay, you'll notice discrete indicators for health and weapons, and a nicely detailed map which does its job well. The inventory/full map screen is well-organized and easy to read, and supports drag and drop and double clicking for item use.

Conclusion

Developer Memetic Games has put obvious care into this PC version, and not simply done the most basic adapation of the DS game possible. While Dementium II HD doesn't have all the bells and whistles PC gamers like, it has most of the essentials, sports respectable visuals as well as great performance and controls, and has enjoyed regular patch support.

Dementium II HD is available now on Steam; it's regularly priced at $15, but can be had right now for a few dollars less.
