Within the first hour of the game there is a sequence where Lara is being chocked and involves a Quick Time Event (QTE) where the player has no idea what to press, leading to repeating the scene continually.
I am playing on the PC with a keyboard and mouse and at no point prior or during did the game tell me that 'F' is to melee attack, which seems to be the key needed. Also the large circle shrinking to smaller circle prompt does not explain that you do not have to match their sizes but just hit the prompt when the larger circle shrinks within the smaller one.
I failed the scene at least ten times until pausing and looking at the menus for a key that I had not yet tried and looking on the web, it appears that I am not alone.
Did anyone have this issue? And does it play out differently on a console/with a controller? Just felt as if it had not been play tested and it was in no way obvious what was required at such an early point in the game.
