‘Tomb Raider reboot isn’t Uncharted’ – Crystal Dynamics

VG247 writes: Crystal Dynamics boss Darell Gallagher doesn’t think it’s latest Tomb Raider reboot should be compared to Naughty Dog’s Uncharted series. (Crystal Dynamics, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

Well, he can think that all he wants to, but people are going to compare it anyway. While it's true that Tomb Raider and Uncharted are two different games/franchises, the latest Tomb Raider game obviously takes heavy inspiration from Uncharted, and therefore will be compared.

Since 'units' is immature and likes to make judgemental comments, I will acknowledge the inspiration and ideas Uncharted took from the Tomb Raider series and Indiana Jones for that matter, even though it's obvious and doesn't need to be said.

Ignore him, he's a hardcore 360 fanboy who's been dying to play an amazing game like uncharted

...and you're basing that assumption on what information exactly?

For your information, I own a Playstation 3 and all three Uncharted games. But you wouldn't know that, because you're an ignorant twat making false assumptions with no logical or factual basis.

You people act like Uncharted never took inspiration from Tomb Raider or any other game

Now it seems to be the other way around, but I guess you're more then OK to act like it isn't.

TR of old was inspired by Indiana Jones. UC is inspired by Indiana Jones. There's treasure collecting...that's the extent of old school TR's presence in Uncharted.

The Reboot looks like an open ended Uncharted. Everything from the combat, to the cinematic events.

If TR is not inspired by UC, than we'd be playing another game about shooting dinosaurs and falling off cliffs...

Yes it is. but thats a good thing. Uncahrted was fantasic and the lastest tomb raiders were not.

Tomb rider have clearly taken some inspiration from uncharted but that isn't a bad thing since uncharted is awesome, and this will be enjoyed until uncharted 4 comes. We really need more games like tomb rider and uncharted.Sad that these two games are the only ones that have that indiana jones feel.

The new "star wars 1313" also plays like uncharted.
Zefros  +   1208d ago
That game looks amazing, will buy this day one!

It looks pretty fantastic. Uncharted is a great game to copy, so it's not a bad thing by any means.
TopDudeMan  +   1208d ago
Nah, but resident evil 6 will be uncharted.
InTheLab  +   1208d ago
One of the best franchises this gen. Nothing wrong with that. TR looks fantastic. Much better than the last 3 or 5 TR games.

I dont know why every one is up in arms, how is it a bad thing, Uncharted is a fantastic series and if CD can duplicate that experience by bringing in similarities in that made Uncharted so great then why the hell not.

People always get all pissy because Uncharted came and took the throne while Tomb Raider was still sucking on ice.Tomb Raider is not Uncharted. I know that. But people who can't see that they have taken some cues from Uncharted are really blind.
Hicken  +   1208d ago
The two franchises have influenced each other. And it's turning out great for both sides, from what I can tell.

I've had great fun with the Uncharted series, and it looks like I'll be enjoying this new Tomb Raider quite a bit, as well.
