makes me wonder how many dev studios made a sequel without ever play the game before?

Makes me wonder if they noticed any of the under water sections or that the game didn't have regenerating HP.

Maybe because this game doesn't have any underwater sections? It's not that she CAN'T swim, literally. There's just no reason for her to get into water to swim as they didn't want to bog us down with missions where she has to swim to complete an objective. As for the health thing; that's what they felt would make more sense when they were making the game. Perhaps there are still some aesthetical procedures that take place to make it look like she's healing herself still? You don't know yet.

they also dont have a reason to add regenerating health ..

but still gonna buy it , i like the upgrade but i also hate removing good stuff that made tomb raider great...

This seems kind of obvious, who know's why they didn't do this any earlier Lol.

Hhhhm, interesting news. I recently bought the said game for the 3rd time on my Ps Vita; however, it was just before it got put on sale so I lost some money that I potentially could've kept.

So we decided to make a game the polar opposite of Tomb Raider. Huzzah!!

In my eyes, Crystal Dynamics have never really managed to capture what Core Design had with the original Tomb Raiders. I think they overlook some of the main elements that made the original Tomb Raider so amazing and enjoyable to play.
