Translation : " We know today's gamer doesn't have the attention span to solve old school Tomb Raider puzzles, so we left them out to cater to the masses. " ...which sucks because the original TR games were the best, and the puzzles were a big part of that.

On to bigger and better things. Personally I think the TR games lacked any real story telling, so I welcome the change.

How is getting rid of puzzles necessary for better story telling?

I personally think it's bullcrap.
Tomb Raider was mostly about exploration, not combat.

Bigger and better? I'm not sure what you mean by that, and I don't think you are, either.

And as Nathan said, puzzles really don't have anything to do with storytelling.

Tomb raider has been dead forawhile now. There taking tips from uncharted and are actually making a tomb raider worth playing.

As a tombraider fan, this reboot worries me, if they want to change everything, just make a new IP...

I for one enjoyed the 80% exploration and 20% combat.

But to hear the iconic puzzles are gone is troubling.

This was a day 1 purchase for me, but now i might wait til the price drops significantly and certainly after reviews come out.
