A dislike for a simple comment like that? trolls will be trolls. I swear I think they are the worst on n4g though.

I got mine last friday from ebay.
It's a great game and worth buying but it doesn't really feel like a Tomb Raider game in my opinion.

@Relentk77

I'll just paste my comment from what I thought about it in another article:

I got the game last friday and I can tell you now it really doesn't feel like a Tomb Raider game.
If you have played all 3 Uncharted games the action sequences in Tomb Raider feel a little Déjà vu.
I've kind of had my fill of the over the top action sequences, some parts are exactly the same as Uncharted. I'll be getting a lot of disagrees for saying this but it's true, if you've been playing Uncharted there will be a lot of moments where you roll your eyes because it's a been there done that situation. I also don't like what they have done to Lara Croft, the attitudes gone and the thick English accent is lacking, you can tell the game has been made by an American studio as opposed to the Core games made in the UK.
BUT...it is a great game and worth buying, when you're solving puzzles in tombs or taking enemies out stealthily with your bow and arrow it's an amazing game. The graphics and semi-open world are very impressive too. Also the platforming is top notch and you'll have a great time finding the secrets.
I just wish they got rid of all the over the top action parts because it's just not what Tomb Raider is about and when it's not doing that it's at its best.

It looks like Uncharted to me lol

would you say a person who loves the Uncharted series probably love the new Tomb Raider?

Relientk771157d ago

Thanx for your opinion on the game, cuz I am defnitely thinking of getting it, even if its not now and in the future

I hate street dates... just ship the thing and let people buy it when its ready. I know there are reasons but still...

It is understandable 90% of games are released in the UK on a Friday.

tigertron1157d ago

The whole fixed date thing is utterly retarded, as is the general Friday release for UK games, whereas the US tend to get games on Tuesdays.

The fact that games have to release on either day is ludicrous. So what if Tesco has sold some copies early? who cares? stupid Square-Enix...I applaud stores (online stores in particular) who ship games early.

Hahaha this site is making me laugh today. Take some business and economic classes and all this frivolous stuff will start to make sense. Different consumer groups have different buying habits, thats why business models are different throughout the world. You may not like it but it makes them all more money.
