The revamped control system provides intuitive and fluid character movement. Dynamic animation system puts focus on continuous motion, giving Lara the ability to seamlessly handle any obstacle and interact dynamically with any surface. Prince of Persia control system is one of great inspiration for Crystal Dynamics.

If you look at Lara in the previous incarnations, she was more life like in her movements... even in AOD, albeit sticky control wise... The Prince of Persia movements/animation, are more likened to that of a cartoon character, this makes Lara look more cartoon like. Take a look at the point when she pulls herself up onto a ledge and you'll see what I mean for one example.

Personally I hated the way the character moved in Prince of Persia comapred to the way Lara moved, but "the ability to seamlessly handle any obstacle and interact dynamically with any surface" does sound an added bonus.

Oh and, nicely laid out M. :cool:

Why have a PDF version? To compress pictures?

Bloodrayne 2 kind of had Prince of Persias control.. very fluid and acrobatic. This will make a nice touch to Tomb Raider. The problem with the earlier games is she moved around like she was an alchoholic. And after playing the last Prince of Persia and Bloodrayne 2 I was really impressed with the fluid control. The only issue is that means I'll need a new gamepad. Using the keyboard with those games is a *****.
