I accidentally trampled one of the wolves to death in one of the first missions... which was amusing.
It's nothing game breaking, I'm enjoying the game so far... but I feel it could be a much better experience with a few design decisions being different. How you interact with the world you're placed in matters... and this one just feels antiquated in that regard.
We moved on from holding a button to run a long time ago for example, it's just not a thing games do anymore.
Prioritizing animations over inputs is a conscious decision they made to make the game look better, which I can respect, I just prefer the alternative. I'd sacrifice a little polish on character movement to get rid of the feeling of sluggishness... which they didn't want to do.
