It is better to match the Vertical and Horizontal Camera Sensitivity but if you are bothered by the shaking of the vertical shaking of the camera, decreasing the vertical sensitivity is also an option.

Start From Action Focused Gameplay

Action Focused

Action Focused is recommended because you can freely fight as you want and enjoy more action. It is recommended to start from Action Focused then if you feel that it is difficult, move to Story Focused.

Focusing On Frame Rate Makes The Movement Smoother

Story Focused

Prioritizing Frame Rate lessens the motion blur (blur from moving perspectives) making the battle have quicker and smoother movements helping you with the controls as well.

Early Game Guide

Increase The Camera Sensitiveness

Camera Sensitivity

The default setting for Camera Sensitivity is 2 for both Vertical and Horizontal. By moving it a bit faster, the movement of perspective will be smoother. If you move it to a number around 20, the movement will be too fast to keep up so keeping it from 6 to 12 is recommended.

Turn Off Motion Blur To Prevent Motion Sickness

Recomenede Setting Image

Ver1.03 Update implemented a new setting to adjust motion blur strength. If you easily get motion sickness from screen shake, turn motion blur strength to 0 to turn it off.
