30 Minutes of Tomb Raider Gameplay

Warning: Gameplay footage contains spoilers.

Actually, I’m not even sure it can be considered 30 minutes of actual gameplay footage. I mean, it was mostly cut scenes – the player didn’t get to do much of anything. I wonder if most of the game is going to be like this, or if they just wanted to show off the controversial scene.

Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about the heavy use of cut scenes. Playing the game, seems like it would be a lot more intense, than watching a youtube video of the game. The game seems to be thick with atmosphere, so I can easily see myself getting totally immersed in the game, fully experiencing the emotions it wishes to elicit from players.

On the other hand, it seems very hard to get into any sense of “flow” of gameplay, as it breaks it up constantly with yet again, another cut scene.
