You were credible until you gave AC3 such high acclaim, when it is highly regarded as the worst in the franchise lol but I cannot wait to play this with all the positive reviews (amateur and professional).

Well, it is my opinion. AC3 is a big improvement over its predecessors because of the renewed engine and gameplay. Compared to even AC2: Brotherhood ou Revelation, AC3 really kicks ass. I just would like to know that, if it's the weakest in the franchise, why did they decide to repeat all the naval stuff on the new upcoming Black Flag?

But, again, this is only my foolish opinion.

Amazing fun, similar to Uncharted series. Amazing switching between cutsceens and gameplay, all is so smooth.
Only part way throuhg, but I really like it. But does not feel like classic tomb raider. (i did not play more recent items... just first few)

Mostly action, adventure... the puzzle element is near extinct! The puzzles are **** easy! No real effort required at all.

EDIT:


imamoru: AC3 is a strange game to compare... have you played Far Cry 3? Pure fun factor and island atmosphere is somewhat similar... to me.

Because the naval stuff is the best part. Which is why it's in 4.

It's the weakest because of Connor, and wide open forest spaces with nothing to do (weeeeee hunting). You won't see either of those in 4.

I am in love with the lore of Assassin's Creed, and I even bought the season pass, but I have yet to touch the game after finishing the main story.

And it's clearly a matter of opinion: I find the naval stuff annoying and I love Connor.

I'll give Farcry a try. I don't like FPS, but I'm kind getting prepared for it since Resident Evil 6, Mass Effect 3 and Tomb Raider are similar to FPS experience when you shoot.

And if it's from Ubisoft, I'm in.

It's kind'a funny. Uncharted used to be accused of being a Tomb Raider knock-off. Now, it's obvious that the new Tomb Raider is taking some influence from Uncharted.


There is one part where you are in a burning house/building which is exactly like a part from Uncharted 3.

Just finished it.

Overall: Amazing.

Have not had this much fun playing for a while! It is always interesting to keep on going, or to run off on a side quest for a tomb. Everything is just right in this for me. You can shoot and scavange any animal, but you dont have to.
The graphics on high end pc are just perfect! I mean everything looks so real.. grass, water, fire are among the best, hair and facial experessions are top notch!

Only concern: I played on normal and it was rediculously easy... I died only when I made an obvious stupid mistake. Otherwise, there is not much challenge in combat... Which does NOT take away from my experience of the game. I loved the overall experience, including combat! Had I known that, I would have selected a harder game, but you never know what to expect, so I usually stick with Normal.
Also, the enemy stock character models have like 2 versions that repeat ALL the time... kinda tedious. Which all the other stuff perfect, adding maybe a few more complex models would have nailed it. But I understand the complexity of such models, and I can see how they thought it was not worth the efforft.

Got the last one the other day in the Xbox sale to play that first then i'll eventually jump into this one. Looks good though from what I've seen/read so far. :)

Always love Lara!

While they're good in cutscenes, they're extremely lacking during normal play. For example, when you're rescuing your friends from the helicopter cage and Lara is bringing them up to speed, they're all talking but the prisoners lips don't move, and while Lara's do move, they're not synchronised with the dialogue. I know I'm nitpicking what has been a very good game so far however.

...clearly you haven't played one in a while. Although the original was marked T for animated blood and violence.

Ha! I've played only the first, when it came out and it was great; good story, graphics, action, puzzles, Lara's "attributes"..funny how similar both games are :)

I'm at 67% and I've seen no hint of spiders. All the enemies are humanoid, except for a couple of wolves.

No spiders, only rats.

I finished it, great game! Not super short, but not super long either. I guess about average. I was hoping for something the length of 'Uncharted'.

Lara's breasts get a perfect 10. Not completely overdone and they may have been the smallest in the series. Some of the cutscenes deliberately zoom on them and its hard to ignore.

Come on! No one commented on this?

I am stuck at the stupid sequence where Lara has now got crushed more than 10 times by a boulder at the start.
How to go on about that using keyboard and mouse?

Halfway through, didn't know what to make of it at first, I thought it was going to be some lame survival horror, then I thought it was going to be exploration and survival, but after the starting 'tutorial' you don't do much 'surviving' the game has settled into being a competent Uncharted clone except Uncharted has charm and humour, this game is just a Lara falling over, on and off things simulator.

If I wanted an Uncharted experience, I would play Uncharted, Tomb Raider is about.....um...... raiding tombs, the secret tombs that are littered around the game have basic puzzles but nothing on the level of the TR of old.

I'm hoping now the story has established itself the sequel will keep what it introduced here but applies it to actual tomb raiding.

The controls however are spot on, I'm not talking about the QTEs, I like that you automatically go into cover without having to snap to it when you are near enemies which causes me no end of grief in cover based games, the jumping and traversal controls are excellent, not once have I fallen to my death because of the controls, only my poor dexterity.

It's the story of how she got started, so I can fully understand focusing on the narrative and including smaller tombs. It's very different to the previous games but it's still faithful to the franchise. I expect the next game will see much larger tombs considering that Lara is now much more experienced. It wouldn't really make sense to have Lara starting out with epic tombs.

You have to press F and kick the dude ... or maybe it's E it's one of those.

Yeah I suppose, I am a MASSIVE Uncharted fan so I'm probably biased against Tomb Raider for being a lot like it. I think it went a little TOO far in the opposite direction of the old games.

The thing that annoyed me most is that it did a great job of introducing hunting, Lara feeling remorse over killing something to survive then later on you have an assault rifle, shotgun and a pistol and are gunning down people left right and center.

The story I could take or leave it but the mechanics and game engine are there ready for an epic story.

Those, "Action scenes" are called Quick time events, or QTE's for short. And yes, they're disliked by many.

I got stuck there too, its not clear which key you need to push. You have to press F when the smaller circle is inside the big circle.

It's a shame most games don't have demos for you to try these days.
