Tomb Raider

Post by praed0r » Sun Apr 07, 2013 12:37 am

I am so disappointed with this game - quite simply, it's NOT Tomb Raider.

It's a blood-fest 3rd person SHOOTER, not bad for one of them - but it's NOT Tomb Raider.

Everywhere you go you are faced with wave after wave of baddies that are intent on ripping you to bits - that is NOT Tomb Raider.

The few Tomb puzzles that you will come across are optional and have no bearing on the rest of the game - once again - NOT Tomb Raider.

I guess you get the Idea - It's NOT ......................

If you want a decent appraisal of the game you will have to ask someone who is NOT a Tomb Raider fan - I think.

Anyone agree with me ? - or NOT ?

I agree with you. But u forgetting things:

It is NOT Tomb Raider of 1996. It is Tomb Raider of 2013.

Its like watching Batman's Michael Keaton vs Cristian Bale.

Its a remake, a prequel, a reboot. And I dont mind it.
Good game, but multiplayer is laggy suck bull-***. Cant compared with UC2/3. Thats what TR trying to be but failed.

Also, the only problem this new TR gave me is headache. They need to make a patch to STOP the camera shaking.

I take your point about it being the Tomb Raider of 2013, but the change in direction they have taken means it's more of a poor copy of UC than it is TR.
I have been playing Tomb Raider since the very beginning - first on my Sega Megadrive - then on PS1,PS2,PS3,PSP,PSVita and even on Android - this new game has completely dropped what made this game great IMO - the searching and puzzle solving. (I've not noticed the camera shaking ?? - maybe because I'm 60 and shake too.... lol)

I believe a rename of the game is needed:
Lara Croft's Dangerous Hunts

I thought it was a brilliant game. Probably one of the best. It was more storyline centered and grounded. The cinematography and acting was really well done, there was no shaking either. I do agree thats its not the old Tomb Raider, but this was fresh yet still felt like a Tomb Raider game. Hopefully TR2 will be more about puzzles though. This was nothing like UC at all either, nor was it trying to be.

I was hoping for something more like Anniversary/Legend/Underworld - I'm only half way through this one and I don't know if I'll complete it, which is bad, because I even completed Angel of Darkness on more than one occasion. I'm getting tired of the endless hordes of baddies and her constant whimpering & groaning. It definitely reminds me more of UC than TR. (I enjoyed Uncharted by the way, all of the ps3 and Vita versions.)

Everyone to their own I suppose.

You do know its a prequel? She is acting like any girl would going through all that, especially murdering someone for the first time. She stops being like that later on in the game though. And the fantasy elements come later in the game.

Yep - so were bits of TR5 Chronicles, matter of fact she was younger in that and no constant ooh arghs.

I just don't like the way they are developing the game, as I said in the opening post - It's NOT Tomb Raider (IMO).
