I was moderately interested in this game before...but now, not so much. MP in a TR game is 100% unnecessary and just plain dumb. The inclusion of MP means $$ and time was sacrificed on the SP portion...which is beyond stupid when you're attempting to reboot a franchise. Some franchises just need to stick to SP, for the good of the final product. It's ridiculous to think anyone is going to give this MP more than a casual glance, with all of the FPS juggernauts monopolizing that space.

What?
Sorry im pretty sure everybody said the same thing about Uncharted 2.

Im also pretty sure Uncharted 2 had a ridiculously amazing single player campaign without any sacrifices and the multiplayer aspect was surprisingly well done.

I'm pretty sure Uncharted 2 wasn't an attempt to reboot a dead franchise. Not to mention, that's a 1st party exclusive...NOT a game that's being released on at least 3 different platforms...all with completely different online makeups. If you don't think this will be a buggy mess, and a complete waste of resources, you're in for a rude awakening.

Yeah, because all multiplats have bad MP right?.. Oh wait. No.

Can you people stop bringing Uncharted 2 into this

It worked for Uncharted 2 because

1) ND are talented developers

2) They had finished the entire game, had time left and just threw it in there. It's why U2's is better then U3's.

3) It works for that type of game. Uncharted is an action/adventure game. Tomb Raider is supposed to be about survival and the origin of Lara Croft. I can't see Lara run around fiering from the hip with an AK, throwing grenades about while getting into cover.

4) They were already up to their second game, Tomb Raider hasn't even had the first game come out yet

Yep, sorry I agree with the others and myself.. there are many games that have done both MP and SP exceptionally well.. to the point they were amazing and still are.

There is no excuse for a bad single-player game because of the multi-player, or any other extra content, that's purely the developers fault, and not the most common. Companies like EA, or Activision use bad business practices like this, but that's certainly only 2-5 companies out of the several hundred out there that know how to develop both sides properly in their games by using patience and not having MONEY strategies as the focus of the game. So I kindly disagree with you out of my own personal 20 years of gaming exp. and witnessing great MP & SP myself.

Tomb Raider is welcomed to have a great multiplayer along side, it has a crazy amount of potential, especially for PC players, we don't have very many 3rd person games aside from MMO's-(different genre) that are equal in scale to any of the Uncharted series, or God of War Series for example (Max Payne 3 doesn't count as the multi-player did not do well on PC). As a hardcore PC gamer, I want an awesome 3rd person game to play online and this could be it, you never know.

something tells me this game is going to have a online pass crap like that really makes me hate this gen and have no hope for the next

So now they can have crappy multiplayer in their already crappy single player. This game looks nothing like Tomb Raider and that's already obvious especially with the regenerating health, lack of swimming, and solving puzzles with magic vision. Someone should've told them that it's pointless to reboot a franchise if you're going to make it just as bad (if not worse) than the recent games.

Why must multiplayer pollute every modern game? I don't mind if it's done properly, but mostly multiplayer nowadays is just imitating other games and doing a poor job at it. There is no innovation in multiplayer anymore. Just doing what other developers do.

"survivors have to collect a certain amount of med-packs"

Why...they don't eve use then anyway

Regenerating Health remember...even despite it being a survival game where med packs would of been a great edition.

"But of course comes back to say that after playing it feels the “creation and execution are coming from the right place.”"

A reviewer defending something he's writting for....wow I'm so shocked /s

"different stats and loadouts"

and they've killed it....why can't we find our own weapons on the map. I hate loadouts they are so cheap, they ruin online games. Let me guess it's going to have every other online multiplayer gimmicks. Uncharted 2 was great then they added them in U3 and it sucked.
