Just got an Xbox one. I've primarily been a PC gamer using keyboard and mouse controls. I downloaded Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and am having a hard time mastering the controls, especially coordinating the movement direction with the camera control. Chasing the pickpocket in an early part of the game was extremely frustrating for example; it was very hard to keep the character running in a straight direction, I was always zigzagging into a building and starting to climb up it. I gave up trying to coordinate the camera and just let it follow me, which was OK but not as satisfactory as what I am used to in PC gaming.
Is it just a matter of practice? are them some hints for using the console controller? I really want to be competent enough with the controller to actually enjoy the game.
