One aspect of The Bureau that took some getting used to was the radial wheel, known as Battle Focus. This allows players to issue orders on the fly, although using Carter to direct units can sometimes be more of a pain than it should be. There were several instances where I found myself wrestling with the wheel more than the aliens that were attacking me. However, once I became more familiar with Battle Focus, it proved to be incredibly useful. Eschewing cover shooting instincts and thinking of ways to utilize my squad members, I started to notice that skillful use of Battle Focus would make firefights go a lot faster. I could simply direct teammates to take out supporting units and focus on heavier-hitting foes, like the Titan spaceships. If I did feel the urge to run-and-gun, I could also take advantage of support abilities, like a bubble shield. Carter's own Battle Focus powers are fun to use, especially once he can use a decoy duplicate or control minor enemies. Unfortunately, after leveling up further, Carter's abilities start to feel somewhat limited and uninspired and the same can be said for teammate perks, as well.
Battle Focus becomes useful, once you get the hang of it
