Your take on Tomb Raider: Underworld

I’m reviewing Tomb Raider: Underworld for Wii and I’ve hit a snag.  I can’t finish the intro level.  There’s something about how they want me to jump across a chasm, shoot a grappling hook, and swing somewhere, but I constantly die.  I’ve worked on this for 15-20 minutes.  It’s very wonky and frustrating and gives me little hope for the rest of the game if the intro training level is this messy.

This is the first time I’ve played a Tomb Raider game and I’m simultaneously enthralled by graphic quality and the drama of the cut scenes but repulsed by the difficulty level of the movements.  It’s as if I’m expected to understand what I’m doing without really being given my motivation or much direction.

So I turn it over to you, our dear readers:  Are you a Tomb Raider fan?  Have you played Underworld?  Do you like it?  Am I just missing something here?
