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

Indeed. But what I've seen in videos looks great. Almost all of you praise this game gameplay and story. Even Conan O'Brian in his Clueless Gamer segment enjoyed it.

I believe I'm most of the way through the story. The game reminds me a [i]lot[/i] of Resident Evil 4.

Can you go back and get all the collectables once you have finished the game?

I Redbox'd the game and played through once on Normal, finished with 72% overall, probably 12-15 hours of play with some extra exploration. Fantastic game. I was happily shocked, found myself actually reacting to the death animations, narrative, liking and disliking certain characters. The puzzles are fun, from what I've played. Think it was one of the stronger solo campaigns I've played in a while. Multi-player seemed alright, the 3 rounds I played. Overall 9/10 for #s people. Opinion: RENT IT

Finally playing it, just took a little break, only 40 minutes in if that, definitely like the whole presentation and vibe. I was already prepared for the fact I would be facing a lot of QTE's initially, so can see once I get past them how the game will really open up.

Any pointers on which skills seem best to unlock? I already spent my 1st point on her vision or whatever it is called, figured it was best to be able to see more items.

Really, REALLY am enjoying it so far, and I am only maybe 90 minutes in [spoiler]I just got the rock climbing axe and came across the first Tomb[/spoiler]

I am well aware of the irony when saying the game is a lot like Uncharted, since once could argue Uncharted got its inspiration from this series, but let's face it, even if Uncharted was inspired by this series, when it came out Uncharted was the evolution of what Tomb Raider should have been, and as such, it was the better game. Well it looks as if the series has finally caught up with Uncharted, but in fact kept some things that make it uniquely Tomb Raider. When you play the game, you can just tell a whole lot of love and thought was put behind everything.

So yeah, considering Uncharted has been one of if not my favorite series of this current (almost past) generation, saying it is like Uncharted but its own is about as high as a compliment that I can pay towards the game itself.

I am currently renting it from Gamefly, and I am seriously considering the Keep It Now option to purchase it, just so I can take my time with it and really explore everything it has to offer.

Tomb Raider is officially back.

I've never even played an Uncharted game for obvious reasons. I suppose I will on the PS4.

Definitely enjoying this one, but damn...you'd think it'd stop raining once a year or so.

The best way to unlock stuff is to do all the tombs and collect all the collectables. Getting one of each done unlocks another skill point. What I did to get to 100% was follow the guides on youtube under 'powerpyx' - awesome videos showing exactly where you need to go and what you need to do :)

Love it.

Only problem I had, was when I was using keyboard and mouse and some of the QTE scenes where it would ask you to press blah din't actually tell you what to press... ie [spoiler]when Lara is hiding from the Russians and the dude finds her and Lara struggles to get out[/spoiler] - the diaglogue telling you to perss blah was showing a ? instead... but when I flicked to joypad, it now shows Y :)

yeah, i dies three times before i figured out what the hell i am supposed to do.

however, i think overall the game is very straight forward... i never ever what really frustrated and wanted to quit the game... like it happens with most games. here, even the challegning parts were still common sence.. no need for guessing, you can work everything out.



i am considering replay on highest difficulty, but still not sure, if it will be fun... i should have played on the hardest if i known how good the game is. some games are just really impossible on hard.

Even though the PS3 said exactly what button to press and I was pressing it, it took me like 15 times to get through that part successfully. It was annoying as all hell. It was the only issue I had so far, so I think that may just be a buggy ass sequence.

The game was intense and definitely an enjoyment. Anyone who hasn't had a chance to play it is missing out.

I also really enjoyed the last Tomb Raider Legends game. I remember just about ****ting my pants when I was on top of building and looking down, the sense of height was great.

pretty sure they're just timed weirdly and they don't tell you that...you have to press it AFTER the circle is within the other circle. Which (considering how early they tell you to press the button) seemed pretty dumb.

That last update and beta driver sent out by NVidia made this game a lot better. I can run Ultimate now at 50-60 FPS steady

I think i got stuck on the same part, i kept dying and then my girlfriend, who's never played a game in her life, was like 'my god, just hold the button..'

so if it is the right part not sure if you are away when the button appears you press and hold until the circle has moved all the way in.

great game though.

Yeah. they did an awful, awful job of communicating this to the player. No wonder I am dying multile times at every one of these, and once I finally do pass it I am not sure how or why. There was a very similar part [spoiler] , she was walking over a bridge and a guy jumps out from behind a truck and tries to push her off the bridge [/spoiler] I had to do that part like 15-20 times as well. So thanks for clearing it up, should make those parts playable now. (Y)
