I'll use Chris chapter 4 for an example. Running through the hanger at the beginning you are forced to stop while the camera zooms in on the next objective, say a sniper or what area you should go to next. This happens a few times before you can get out of the hanger. It's like that in other campaigns too.
What happened to figuring things out on our own and looking at a strategy guide if we needed to? This makes where you need to go so super easy and takes away the challenge in figuring out what to do next.
