I think the "Disgusting!" exclamation was spot on and something a person in that situation would say.

"I see you!" might work overall for the game, but I wonder if this is the only instance where she says this, because if yes, then it makes no sense for her to go full psycho, only to become wholesome girl again 10 mintes later.

"Just a little closer" is exactly the kind of pointless 1 liner that she randomly blurts out that you just described.

They both look really different, the patched Lara looks a lot cleaner and finished.

When I first played, I played some of the game unpatched because my internet was being really dumb and slow. I don't think I would've have noticed that myself.

God, why didn't they use this model? Possibly because the artist that created it doesn't work for CD anymore? It's a shame, either way, it's very high quality and actually looks human. Both versions in the game look so creepy and inhuman, their faces look like silly puddy stretched over my knee.

I loved the "I see you..." line because she seemed to say it very playfully, and to me that tiny playful line is the single-most Lara thing this Reboot character has said in three games. That could come out the mouth of classic Lara, it really captured her playful mischievious spirit that has been so lacking in this trilogy otherwise. I think only one instance is enough though, she doesn't need to say that all the time (if she did, I only heard it once, when sneaking up on the sacrifice ritual in that one temple).

"Disgusting!" Is also fine in an appropriate moment.

But yes, the rest of the "stating the ****ing obvious" self-talk (or talk with Jonah that does this) has to go. If what she's saying sounds so unnaturally Captain Obvious that she's almost breaking the fourth wall by clearly hinting to the player, it needs to go.

Yep it does, it feels very condescending to me when games do that and I hate it.

Unpatched.
I prefer unpatched. Young Lara from Rise would have been good too.
