How to Tell If You'll Love Tomb Raider

IGN - Tomb Raider drops next Tuesday, and while our official review does an excellent job of breaking down exactly why you need it in your life, it seems some people are still under the woefully misguided belief that the game is a series of scripted, timed sequences down a "point A to point B" tunnel. Not so. Very much not so. In fact, as I continue to scour through Tomb Raider's huge, gorgeous island of Yamatai, I started getting flashbacks of some of my favorite first and third person action and adventure games released in the last few years. Which ones, you ask? (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

It's going to be great but I wanted a different Tomb Raider experience that focuses more on exploration and puzzle solving just like the first trilogy.

But that's just me and todays teenagers prefer to shoot people in the face instead of using their brains to figure out a puzzle.

As long as I don't find myself spending hours trying to make it up a cliff wall, I'll enjoy it.

If you like Call of Duty and just shooting people then you'll like this fake Tomb Raider with Lora Craft. If you like the real Tomb Raider games then you'll likely hate this one as they got rid of puzzles because it took up too much time from shooting people in the face. The story fails even more because Lora Craft is supposed to be all weak but then she picks up a gun and unloads a clip into an enemy and then goes off to shoot a bunch of animals purely for XP. Multiplayer is even more like CoD.

I always wondered way half the people always got her name wrong... isn't "lara" an name in the US?

The name is Lara Croft and people do get it wrong a lot.

I know who Lara Croft is but the girl in this game is Lora Craft. Lara Croft is a Tomb Raider. Lora Craft is some weak girl playing adventurer that hates tomb raiding and likes putting a clip of ammo into a person while shooting animals for XP.
