I'm still in the early stages but it definitely looks that way.
I've found myself back peddling on quite a few occasions due to an enemy rolling, side stepping or dodging behind something so my shots have missed. Nipping back behind cover to let my health recharge with the intention of popping straight out for a quick headshot and the enemy has moved from where he was. Two guys in cover and as one drops down to reload the other one (placed at just enough distance away) pops up and starts to unload.
The enemy banter throws you off balance a bit as well. There's been quite a few times I've not quite been paying attention due to laughing and they all decide to open fire. After nailing two of three enemies the one still standing screams 'fuck a duck!!!! I'm out of here. Oi tosser! You can't catch me' he then puts his head down and charges off through a door. Chuckling to myself I sprinted through the doorway after him only to find I'd walked straight into an ambush; one enemy laughing at me as the grenade indicator starts flashing.
The game has a real knack of catching you off guard so the shooting becomes a mixture of reflexes, on and off the fly strategies. I think anyone expecting mindless blasting is going to be very surprised by this.
