Just how bad are the QTE's? It's all I hear about in regards to this game anymore.

And on the subject of digital-only, I never would have noticed. I haven't bought a retail game disc since 2000.

PC Gamer (so take it for what it's worth) said the first few hours of the game are basically "Watch Lara Get Tortured" porn, and your interactions are limited to "hold forward" and occasionally "press the button that the QTE wants you to press."

Lara will be climbing a cliff, and will slip and scramble for a hand-hold and have to fight to regain her balance, until she finally managed to somehow pull herself up to the top of the cliff, and your interaction throughout all that was to "hold forward."

That's not a game. That's a developer jerking off all over themselves and imagining they're making a movie.



Anytime in a game and that happens I get sorta angry, surprisingly its not so bad when its a game mechanic that is non-linear.

In Farcry 3, tapping X to knock off a tiger then hitting Y to cut it is not so bad because it can happen anytime by surprise etc.

Having a set of cutscenes that you control and they only happen ONCE is sorta drab, esp cus its completely linear.
