I bought the PS3 version of the game since I'm in a familiar place with my PC being outdated.
Overall, I feel like the game runs differently than experiences on the PC.
Instead of a cursor they implemented a "reticle" that lets you target enemies and perform actions on them from the character's point of view. You can control each team member and do the same. The solution originally seemed like an elegant solution to me since pulling up the reticle paused the game, lets you assign actions, etc. But it quickly becomes clear that it's not a good solution to micromanaging. I find it nearly impossible through the course of a battle to assign actions to my primary character, target the same enemy in first person on another character, assign actions using the gamepad, etc.
Where it became even more useless was when I started to get more spells. The controls allow for 6 quick slots per character. Everything else is controlled through menus in the reticle, which means that to cast a spell beyond your 6 quick ones, you need to hold (or press, it's an option) L2, move your cursor to spells, press X, find the spell, if it's on more than the first page (there are about 15-20 per page), move your cursor to the next page, press X, find the spell, press X...then hope that you remembered to target the right enemy. Rinse, repeat, for each character, depending on your micro-controlling wants. Most of the time the quick slots are fine, but you can only use the quick slots in live action with the game unpaused.
All in all, the game is beautiful on ps3 and is very fun, and I suppose could be micromanaged with enough patience. However, I find it more fun just to play my main character, let the other characters do what they want and assign tactics to them unless they're about to die (which is pretty often since I often don't see that my rogue decided to run up to the main boss and steal aggro). What this also means is that I probably can't play on anything harder than Normal because it would take far too much micromanaging and I don't have enough patience. None of that would have kept me from buying the game, but it definitely seems like a different experience than I would have on PC.
