Havent they been saying this is open world the whole time?

How can you have open world when there isn't even any swimming in it ? . Wonder when she falls into water does it mean instant death . Even my five year old can swim !! . Was really looking forward to this game until I found that out . Oh dear .

look at older GTA titles, they were open world and you would die when you fell in the water. But the story never took you to need to go in the water so it wasnt a big deal.

So as long as it doesnt seem like it impedes the story I'm fine with the no swimming, however for a tomb raider game it seems weird, there was almost always a part where you had to swim in all the older ones.

Yeah but this is 2013 now

I'm pretty sure the reason we couldn't swim in old GTA games was because of animations problems or something or the tec at the time...it was a PS2 game that didn't rely on swimming. I think when making their open world games as big as those Rockstar thought swimming wasn't really on the to do list

But come on this is Lara Croft swimming was a big part of the old TR games, unlike AC where Altair couldn't swim you had nothing to compare it to since it was the first AC game

You know whats really put me off though

1) It looks like Uncharted instead of trying to be it's own game

2) Regenerating health...it's Tomb Raider those medpacks would of been perfect for this game

They really should of stuck with the original Lara's back story about her plane going down in the Himalayas where her parents and fiance die and she's left alone....THAT would of hardened her the most

Wait, what?... No swimming? How can she be in an island and no swimming? besides, it´s tomb raider, they can´t do that.

That's such a small gripe. To each their own, but come on, this game looks great. Sure, it would be annoying if its instant death if you go into deep water. Hopefully they just don't let you go into water to begin with.

And it's not like they stay away from water. 0:27, 3:18... Looks like you'll be in it plenty when it serves the storyline.

This is what they have said from day 1 :

"The structure is not open world. Not in the GTA, Skyrim, Assassin's Creed sense," Gallagher told NowGamer. "We do have hubs. We've not actually shown any hubs - you've seen a pocket of exploration. That is not a hub we've shown yet."

Lara Croft will be able to revisit areas for further rewards later on too.
"At some point we'll actually show the hubs, which are larger. They're still not open-world, but they allow some freedom, the ability to find secondary tombs, the ability to actually go at your own pace in places and really explore the island," Gallagher explained.

"All this stuff is interconnected - so it is an island that's in one location, and there is an interconnected hub-and-spoke model. And you can actually go back and re-traverse areas and go re-explore as well, once you've discovered them through the base-camp system."

Sweet! the trailer answers my questions and, puts my concerns for a linear game to rest. I think it's gonna be a day 1 buy now.

Its definately trying to trump Uncharted, but all i see are gimicks and an atempt at copieng some of its camera work.
Tombraider was a tuff, prety cool action shooter/climber at its start, it had something raw when Lara got attacked by a tiger, or if she died by falling down a cave.

Now in this generation, she has been pop cultured, with her boat/summer/winter/fancy cave gear (Barbie) cloth, its prety much over man, its pathetic.
Meh. I don't really care for a shootem up adventure with Lora Craft. I'd rather go back to the old days of raiding tombs with Lara Croft instead.

This game had a huge promise initially. Now it looks worse every day.

Everybody here writing about the *not swimming part should just STFU.

Such petty judgments.

Played the game demo and have to say it's extremely satisfying, quite sure it's a very good next-gen presentation of Tomb Raider and will be pre-ordered and bought by many.

Fab trailer video.
