Crystal Dynamics Talks Tomb Raider: Differences From Uncharted, Sexual Backlash

GameRevolution:

The launch of Tomb Raider is just a few of days away, and excitement for the game is unsurprisingly at an all-time high. I was lucky enough to get a chance to chat with Crystal Dynamics' Head of Studio, Darrell Gallagher, and Creative Director, Noah Hughes a bit about Lara's upcoming adventure, and learned quite a bit about the game's artistic direction.

The similarities between Tomb Raider and Uncharted are hard to ignore, but Crystal believes there is plenty that differentiates the two, especially in terms of gameplay and tone. Gallagher pointed out the game's drastically different structure, combining more linear, cinematic portions with larger hub sections that encourage exploration. Tomb Raider also doesn't have that light-hearted feel of an Uncharted game, as the tone is far more dark and does "not pull any punches."

I love Uncharted 2, but I am looking forward to that cinematic quality with a bit more to do in the world. When you only really have to use the jump and shoot buttons, things can get boring. Hopefully there's some variation in Tomb Raider.

Agreed. On the surface Uncharted is incredible, but go a few layers deep and you'll see there isn't much there gameplay-wise.

I know I agree with you. I mean it only won 200 game of the year awards but there just isn't much there.

I know what you're saying, and I agree; there really isn't a huge amount of different moves, apart from the jump and shoot commands.

But I think that just shows how talented the people at Naughty Dog are, and how incredible the series is as a result.

What about the games where all u do is shoot on the surface and the layers?

I got drunk one night and woke up with sexual backlash

I'm very eager to play this game. I love advancements in emotional and mature games.

Yeah, I know it makes me feel like I'm not 12 anymore : D

Doesn't bother me at all that this game looks like an Uncharted clone. I never got into Tomb Raider because it was clunky as hell. Uncharted is an excellent mechanical base to copy.

The "sexual backlash" is idiotic. Go find something else to be offended by, sensitive people.

alexcosborn1240d ago

Good point. I never was a fan of Tomb Raider either, but this new one has totally won me over.

The difference is, Uncharted has very life like believable characters (all of them)... Tomb raider has very dull and generic characters... I have been playing TB for 3 hours now, generic plot, friends gets captured for a ritual to bring back... Gets boring after a while.

alexcosborn1240d ago (Edited 1240d ago )

I wouldn't say Lara is a dull and generic character though.

As far as tone, Uncharted is much more light-hearted and fun. Tomb Raider is serious and dark.

WarThunder1240d ago

I'm not talking about LARA! im talking about other characters...
But the new Lara doesn't act like the old one so...
