Well that sucks. The game looks great, imo.

I stopped following the game when I heard it would have re-gen health, is that still in there?

Should have followed the survival aspects of Mgs 3 where you gain stamina and life by eating the surrounding flora and fauna. A feature like that would have made it into one awesome title.

regenerating health, no swimming, simplified puzzles with a cheat feature. This is no tomb raider game this is an action game Uncharted wannabe cash-in. RIP Lara.

Stuff like regenerating health and maybe no swimming is disappointing, but the game still looks pretty good. Like a more open Uncharted with RPG-ish elements and exploration. I wouldn't judge the puzzles just yet and an optional cheat feature isn't killing anyone.

I just pray the QTEs, cinematic set-pieces, and Lara-beatings aren't laid on as thick as they seemed to be in the first footages. Here's hoping the game turns out great.

Tomb raider 1 was awesome, even after like 15 years if this title sucks its the end of Lara

Who cares who inspired who can't you just agree they are two great franchises and leave it at

I don't think there's anything wrong with a conversation about games inspiring each other, it's just a shame when people become overly defensive about it. It's no insult to the games to say they drew inspiration from somewhere else :D

They've both been amazing franchises, impacting the industry in different ways. Here's hoping the new Tomb Raider turns out great.

Bloody Pitfall clones clogging up the games industry ;)

Quite interested in this, hopefully it turns out decent.

Bored of the Uncharted comments though, it's perfectly fine to play and enjoy both.
