I agree! In fact I agreed a month or two ago, which is why you can activate something called Reflex Controls.
To activate reflex controls, in the main menu select Preferences and then click on the button Standard Controls. This will change to saying Reflex Controls.
From now on the game will use the Reflex Control style. To revert to normal controls, go back into Preferences and click on the Reflex Controls button. It will now say Standard Controls again and the control style will be the normal Hyper Gauntlet experience.
