Honestly, I find the new Lara to be a rather dull character, I also very much dislike the voice that they used for her. I find her to be a whiny and uninspiring person, who's character progression appears to not transfer at all from the cutscenes and even in them it's pretty basic. I wanted Lara to be a tough person which they have failed to portray, mind you I haven't finished the game yet, I got so fed up of her constant whining that I couldn't carry on.

Interesting that Enslaved was mentioned - the derelict industrial aesthetic of some of the Yamati locations reminded me a lot of that game. The new Tomb Raider is also the first game I've played since Enslaved where I've actually had an emotional investment in the characters.
