You know, I could always accept Spider-man not being able to swim in video games, because I could just pretend the water would turn his webshooters into squirt guns. But a Tomb Raider game where Lara-F**king-Croft can't swim is SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE. It's a game about SUR-VI-VAL, yet they take away her ability to do what a dog knows to do by instinct....when she's SURROUNDED BY F**KING WATER....and then give her the magic ability to regenerate like she's the f**king Hulk or Wolverine.

Screw that BS.... I'm finally done with this schizophrenic franchise for good.

Lara can't swim?? The underwater levels were the best levels in the original Tomb Raider games!

OKMG!, OMFG1 No swimming, shocked!1!!!!!!!

Thank god, swimming in games is so tedious

So what he's saying is it's worth a rental then! Dying because you've fallen into some water will spoil the game imo!! He'd have been better keeping his mouth (or finger) shut!!!!

So? Water elements here are like the "boss" battles in Deus Ex: HR - unfocused.

DLC incoming? Square-Enix really never learns.

Sorry but can't imagine a tomb raider game without been able to swim . Even my five year old daughter can swim !! . A lot of the original puzzles were under water . Well that's one game struck off my to buy list next year .
isarai  +   1170d ago
OK so far this is what i've heard/seen about "Tomb Raider"

1)Puzzles are gone
2)QTE Galore
3) Health regen and no swimming

So how is this tomb raider again?
sazzrah  +   1169d ago
Is it "can't swim" or "no swimming"? ...Because I think there's a difference.

I am okay with there not being a swimming section; even though swimming was a staple of the series, I don't imagine I will particularly miss it.

Not being able to swim is different, it suggests a more idiotic insta-death scenario where touching water like in Assassin's Creed 1 makes you drop down dead for seemingly no reason at all other than the developers didn't think/want to implement a swimming mechanic.

As long as it's not a situation like that I don't mind that there won't be any swimming. Also regenerating health has become the norm in this genre so that didn't surprise me either. I know some people prefer the survival aspects of a static health bar, but these days developers have to consider all ability ranges. As long as there is a nice selection of difficulty modes I'm happy to compromise on that.

Nothing too surprising for me, and certainly not deal-breaking. Looking forward to it!

while naughty dog has implemented med packs in last of us, maybe you can swim also, lmao

Regenerating health and can't swim? Way to damage the franchise.
despair  +   1169d ago
I think that the franchise got damaged a lot worse than that with some of the garbage Tomb Raider games over the years. Also the games were at best, average in recent years so I'm glad they're changing things.

Also Regen health is not exactly a massive loss, I mean games like Uncharted have it and its not bothersome if done right. No swimming is also not a big deal as there will just not be any swimming sections in the game.

Well this will be a game I wait till is at least $30.....very disappointed

I really wish developers would make regenerating health option, the only game i can remember doing this was the goldeneye remake, but then again it was to make it harder.
Games4ever  +   1169d ago
What's the point then to shoot the deer and eat it, if she have regen health anyway?

F*cking hate quick time events, and I am afraid there will be many QTE in this game.

These news makes me unsure if I even bother care about this game anymore.
KEVERS  +   1169d ago
Uncharted was a 8-15 hour game also. I'd say that's the average for an adventure game these days...

As for the "omg she can't swimz", has it dawned on anyone that swimming might not even be necessary in this game? John Marston (Red Dead Redemption) drowned once he walked out past his knees, it didn't break the game.
x5exotic  +   1169d ago
Still better than Uncharted :)
Mikeockizard  +   1169d ago
She can't swim because the game is too linear, and they keep you on path at all times. Less freedom = more movie-like and cinematic. God, this game has gotten worse and worse from the first reveal.

At first it was an open world with tons of freedom. Then it became a linear game with "hubs". Then they showed gameplay, and everything is pretty much direct paths, with 90% of the action controlled by QTE's. Now we can't even swim....a staple of Tomb Raider since day 1. Too bad, because the more mature them looked great. Really disappointed:(

Yay Crystal Dynamics, I love you for dumbing down your franchise, you are just one more developer abandoning their fans and pandering to the MTV/ADD crowd for some extra cash. I lost faith in video games, they are going down the same toilet movies have went down over 10 years ago. Sad.
GiantFriendlyCrab  +   1169d ago
well you can thank internet for that
