To answer the question I left hanging in the opening of this post, yes there is a quick turn option in the game. This control option allows you to quickly turn 90 and 180 degrees with the press of a button. The only thing to note is what direction you are facing as this determines where you will quick turn to. To quick turn use the D-pad the following ways:

  • Up: Return to front facing.
  • Down Quickly look behind.
  • Right/Left: Turn you 90 degrees in that direction.
