I think the problem is when we normally see an origins story it's a short concise thing that last one installment or less. Crystal have taken Lara right back to reset and are showing Lara in the time when Core were happy to just state what happened.

This Lara doesn't feel like Lara yet because she isn't. In effect CD are taking a lot of time to show us how Lara gets to be the person she was, presumably, by the time we just jumped in with her as a fully formed 28 year old with Core. So it feels a lot longer and her character feels a lot more different.

I am hoping to see more progression in her hardness and independence in the next game though. I don't think it needs another bring and save 'x' friend this time. A good relationship with side characters encountered and the main enemy should sustain the next game.
Merry Christmas, Ya filthy animal.
