If like me you got stuck trying to swing and break free from the hook please read this.
No matter how fast or slow I waggled the stick left and right Lara would not get any momentum.I even tried changing my sensitivity and a different pad!
After 25 minutes of pain and wanting to give up I restarted my check point. To my surprise a simple left to right waggle (2 or 3 times) got Lara swinging.
After escaping I was annoyed I had to do that as up until that point I had loved every minute of the game.
One odd thing that I did notice was that after the checkpoint restart I actually didn’t have that annoying LS stick moving from left to right telling me what to do.
