I don't agree with either of you.
The controls are not great. I hate missing a jump because the jump animation took 4 seconds to perform. I did get stuck to walls on occasion. and I do feel that it all moves too slow.
However, it is not nearly as bad as tomb raider. They did lots to fix most of the problems. They made the enemies slow too, and they miss with their shots. and you don't walk off cliffs or miss with your whip or anything.
The controls need work, but at least they compensated by making the game a puzzle solving adventure game instead of a reflex driven button mashing game. Instant reaction from a push of the button is not necessary to completing the game.
I think if they fix up the controls a little, it will be an amasing game, but even if they don't, it still works.
