Tyris dismounts in Golden Axe: Beast Rider

Pretty much everything we've seen of Golden Axe: Beast Rider has had returning character Tyris Flare riding atop the back of some creature or another. Now, we're getting a trailer devoted entirely to on-foot gameplay and it's put me a little more at ease. The beasts just don't appeal to me all that much.

My complaint with this trailer is in how Tyris looks. Is it just me, or does she appear to be the sort of woman you'd find outside of a bus station trying to score some black tar heroin? I'm not talking about the outfit here. Those are the same clothes she's been wearing since the first Golden Axe, after all and it's not an unexpected wardrobe choice for women in these sorts of games. It's just that her face and hair look really awful.

Golden Axe: Beast Rider dropped this week. I've decided that, even armed with the knowledge that the on-foot stuff appears to be solid and in spite of my retro-goggles, I'm just not interested enough with everything else coming out around it. Are any of you going to be giving it a chance?
