Except you cannot move around, it has receiver detailed gun mechanics and four screens instead of one. It looks pretty good.

Yeah. I was pretty good at the receiver controls. With this game it looks like you click on the upper right hand corner for aiming (You drag a cross hair) and you use the bottom left for reloading. From what I've seen you just do it with your mouse. It will definitely be different but I hope it has that same feeling of success when you learn how to reload and know your gun inside out.

Hmmm... now how could I have predicted that it's procedurally generated?
Not that's a bad thing; David seems to love procedural anything and does it quite well.

Pocedural anything just feels more alive if done well. It's not as static and familiar as the alternative. Looking back to games like Oni and Tomb Raider (the first one), both the environments and the animations made the place feel robotic once you got used to them, since they were always the same. The world feels smaller like that.
But when it's different every time, even just a little...

At the peril of being a bit off topic, I disagree.

Until we have algorithms that can take into account reasonable connections between countless factors a hand crafted world will always feel more alive when it's done properly. It takes a whole lot of work, which will generally result in a smaller world, but that small world will feel amazing. The Gothic series (especially I and II) are my best experience with that. The map in these games was completely made b hand and it shows. It feels organic and everywhere you go you will find something interesting. They were smaller than other open-world RPGs, but damn were they fun to run around in.

The original Tomb Raider had to be that way because of the movement of the character. It was all based on right angles and squares, but it tried to be organic and set in environments like jungles. The animations themselves were amazing for the time, but the movement options of the character took priority. And many of the challenges for the player were based on perfecting the movement, so I think it's actually not even a problem with the game.

I absolutely agree that especially for animations some level of procedural aspects will make the environment and the player's actions more believable and varied, but saying that procedural is always better with what we have right now is just a massive over-generalization. Things that have many varieties, but few/knowable factors can do well procedurally (e.g. an animation that takes into account the skeleton and collision). More complicated systems with more interrelated factors (e.g. varied, organic, immersive environments)... Not so much.

It all depends on what the goal of the game is. Procedural environments provide varied experiences rather than realistic ones (at least with what we have right now). If the game is about offering replayability through new experiences and environmental challenges, then a procedural approach is perfectly fine. That'S what Minecraft is all about. The biomes in that game look pathetic when compared to crafted maps of other open-world games, but they work because you are constantly looking for stuff.
