Thanks for the summary, it pretty much matches my thoughts having picked over all the footage at TRF. Apart from one person at that forum, every other account has felt completely biased. It's annoying.
I'm just narked at how the summation of all the footage we've seen so far - the supposed first hour of the game - appears so painfully linear and annoyingly cinematic. I don't want endless contextual animations, Lara stumbling on the same bloody log on that cliff path, every time I play it. I hate that shit, I don't want to be spoon-fed a story, much less a story about someone I'm completely indifferent to. I don't want Uncharted with tits, just give me some sprawling tombs that excite my desire for exploration. Is that too much to ask of a Tomb Raider game?
That question finally got a response from Crystal's Community Manager and, like I said before, apparently some 'proper' TR footage (exploration & traversal) is on the way around the end of the year. But to be honest, I'm not holding my breath.
