Tomb Raider Underworld Frustration

This game has so much potential but the difficultly in controlling Laura is simply too great. In some locations such as when you are about to leave Thailand and you are trying to navigate across a pit filled with water using your graple, it takes about 50 attempts before you can make the twisting-swinging jump to the opposite platform. The game loses all it's fun factor in these situations and the wasted hours of time going nowhere is very bad. What is the point in programming a game that leads to an extremely high level of frustration that has nothing to do with solving the game puzzles and mazes? The game has great graphics and the story is pretty good. I quit the game in the middle of South Mexico because it was no longer a fun game.

Controls felt too light, wasnt the delayed/heavy movements from the first 4 games. Jumping straight was a challenge as the analog sticks werent mapped efficiently to Lauras movements.

I played it for an hour and put it right back into its gamefly package so I could keep playing Dead Space which was incredible.
