True. That's why i don't trust anyone but my eyes to judge the games. They always fight for stupid things instead of looking for good games. Same happened before the ps4 announced. They all said it's not a big leap because they think it is or the media says so but all of them they were wrong. That's why i'm trying to find another site that think about gaming not sales or reviews or scores or compare ..etc

It is a ridiculously good title, not just for the Tomb Raider franchise but for games in general.

The developers deserve every ounce of success they get, as it's a brilliant game and one of the most refined in terms of gameplay mechanics that I've played in years.

Playing as Lara Croft is also just as good, if not better than playing as Nathan Drake or some other highly publicised male protagonist (coming from a male gamer).

Tomb Raider 2013 is just a plainly fun overall experience and surprisingly also a deeply engaging and emotional one.

Great game. Make sure you check it out.
FriedGoat  +   490d ago

DonteDemonSlayer  +   490d ago
It's good that this title is selling well, seeing as they have put a good effort on making something good. What I'm afraid of, as with any large publisher is the game being rehashed year after year. It would not surprise me to see a half hearted "sequel" come out early next year.
Root  +   490d ago
Good but now it seems we'll never see a proper Tomb Raider game again :(

I miss the old puzzles while exploring Tombs all over the world...there was hardly any puzzles in this game and the ones that were in were really, really easy. I mean optional tombs...come on they shouldn't be optional in a TR game. Just stop with the over the top near death cutscenes/explosions....your Lara Croft not Nathan Drake.

The only main criticism about the reboot though is the voice actress who did Lara. She was ok in normal conversation but when she's screaming, in agony, in pain, yelling (things which are in the game alot)....any time she was showing emotion basically, it sounded terrible.

dboyc310  +   490d ago
The voice acting, character development and set pieces aren't as top notch as the ones in Uncharted but honestly the only reason I'm interested in this game is because of the more gritty and dark approach to the story. Wasn't planning to get it but been watching play through video and honestly I'm intrigued so getting it tomorrow for sure since it's Friday.
Root  +   490d ago
The voice acting is really weak. They picked the wrong women to play her I hope they change her voice actress in the next TR game. I mean it dosen't go very well with the dark, gritty theme of the game when you have the main character sound...well like a 13 year old. Even that bit where she said "I hate Tombs" was so cringe worthy just because of the way she said it in that voice.

I just hope they try and separate it from Uncharted though because a lot, and I mean alot of the set pieces in the game where she would have to escape an exploding bridge or house, fall and slide down a hill or holding onto to things on a collapsing building seemed too much like Uncharted. I mean for trying to be realistic they added a lot of escaping from death by luck moments over and over. Plus for being new to guns she was like a tank taking out wave after wave of enemies.

It was kind of like that

"Oh my god how did she survive that" feeling like when it happened to Drake alot.

I really hope for the sequel they start the game off with her training at home, like the events of this game made her want more and made her want to keep training herself. She could have a gymnasium or a shooting range in her mansion.

I did like though how she kept talking to herself trying to pull herself together, it really got inside her state of mind....something I wish we had with Chell in Portal 2.

Oh and they need to scrap regen health in the sequel, bring back med kits.

EDIT

lol so many disagrees above....guess theres a lot of new TR gamers here who never played the olds ones. Your missing out guys

For a sequel they must scrap health regen or introduce a "Hardcore" mode with the said feature. Furthermore, I highly sugget fans raised on this title to try out te older titles. Sure they're old but the missions are fantastic! Got a Vita? Buy a couple of them from the PS Store.

nah, I really like this Tomb Raider "reboot", the gameplay/fighting mechanics are good, story is interesting, deaths are brutal but most of all Lara feels like a real explorer who's learning the ropes so to speak, of course she survives some situations and falls that are really unrealistic, and of course simple things like she would freeze half to death climbing that radio tower in a tank top, lol, but overall I thought the voice acting and all her agonizing screams of pain were pretty well done= although I'm not finished, only about half way through the game.

Yeah. Instead of a game that sets itself apart from other action adventures like the original 3 or 4 Tomb Raiders did, they decided to reboot the series into an Uncharted clone with a few twists. I prefer the old TR style but with this one doing well we can kiss that goodbye.

Ravenor  +   490d ago
That's cool, but I found the first 3 Tomb Raiders incredibly clunky and Angel of Darkness was the purest form of crap to ever wear short shorts.

The argument can be made that I'm ignorant since I haven't played any of the Tomb Raiders on the 360/PS3, and I will accept that. But the idea of a Tomb Raider being more then a random blip on my radar died so long ago that something was kind of required for it to stick in my mind as something I should play.

Who knows maybe after this I'll go dig up Anniversary, Legend and Underworld. Have the 3 available on current Gen platforms stuck to the formula of the original TR run?
delboy  +   490d ago
I agree for the lack of puzzles, but we might see some in the next game, at least I hope so.

Anniversary is still the best TR game, for me at least.
So a perfect TR game would be a mix of Anniversary and new reboot game mechanics.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   490d ago
@Root

I agree with you a 100%.
The worst thing about the game for me was Lara Croft.
Her voice actor is terrible and everything sounded forced and like a fake British accent. Some of the dialogue was really bad. I'm not sure if the Americans can really tell the difference (not meant as an insult) but if you're in the UK you can definitely tell when someone is trying to sound English. (Apparently the voice actor has an English/American hybrid accent! :/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Also the Tombs were a huge let down, they were all practically the same and way to easy.
Last but not least the action sequences that resembled Uncharted WAY to closely weren't even needed at all and just furthered the feeling that this wasn't a Tomb Raider game anymore.
Still, it is a great game in it's own right and deserves the praise, you can see the effort that's been put into the game. I just miss old Lara Croft (not looks wise) but her attitude and her rich English girl accent that sounded really hot lol.
I miss the feeling of being isolated and alone too, I also miss the legendary theme song and I wish they kept it https://www.youtube.com/wat...

Think your right. The sequel should step it up a notch if it wants to compete with Uncharted. Among Thieves will be hard to top just look at how Drake Deception tried. One thing for sure Tomb Raider campaign looks better than the Drake's Deception one.

@ andibandit below

Would you stop with the shipped vs sold BS? Everyone already knows that when Sony, MS or Crystal Dynamics in this case, report numbers they're talking shipped to stores. On top of that you have the nerve to quote VGChartz when you know their numbers aren't 100% legit (heck we don't even know where they get their numbers besides the "inside anonymous source" that they pass off). You even criticized others who used VGchartz in the past as "posting phony numbers".

Edit: Let me own you with your own logic. Since you believe Vgchartz to be legit (going off of your wild PMs), I guess their numbers on Tomb Raider are legit as well, right? It appears that Tomb Raider has only sold 200K...WW.

No, I disagree with you sir. UNcharted 2's riveting story about how a Russian guy, and how he really hates his scars is probably the best thing ever put down on paper.

I'm being sarcastic, but only a little. The amount of Uncharted 2 circle jerking is just getting out of hand. It's a fantastically produced game, with what I would call a cohesive and complete story. But it's nothing I would call special in the overall story department. (Neither is TR, I'm just sayin')

Lets Start remaking the others, the more "puzzle" adventure games from the pc/ps1 era. Redo the Stories a little bit, keep the top notch voice acting, add a little more danger and suspense to the cave exploring.

Hell, in Tomb Raider 2 the opening scene where she climbs down the ladder, they could make it like Crysis where she halos out of a plane or something and has to hit a mark.

So many ways they could make those games that I remember even greater.

Good job.

Uncharted has pretty much NOTHING in common with the original Tomb Raiders kiddo, other than the fact that the main characters search for artifacts. From gameplay mechanics, to story presentation, to platforming sequences. etc.

This Tomb Raider reboot on the other hand. Takes HUUUUUUGE amounts of inspiration from the Uncharted series. While Uncharted takes HUUUUUUGE amounts of inspiration from Indiana Jones.

When's the last time you seen a Indiana jones video game unless you refer to that piece of crap game last gen or a movie from 1981.. ok Indiana Drake get real dude. Uncharted came from Tomb Raider more so the Indiana Jones. But yeah uncharted probably bit on both

Having played all the ps1 tomb raider games they have nothing in common with uncharted besides the fact that they had puzzles and the whole treasure hunting storyline. Naughty dog even mentioned in an interview they got inspiratin from Indiana Jones, yes the movies.

@Horny

So none of the 7 Tomb Raider video games that also produced two Silver screen appearances By Laura Croft had anything to do with influencing Uncharted or being made for that matter. Sounds good :/

Only on N4g la la land do movies have gameplay mechanics.

@ horny you should replay the old TR games. I'm sure that you'll notice that what the Drake does, Lara did it years before, besides getting into cover of course.

NoWayOut don't get so butthurt. I was just meaning for the cinematic part of the game. Uncharted was hyped up for being like and movie and I think Tomb Raider has definitely passed Uncharted on that subject. I find the game fresh and new.

P.S. Im a PC and console player. I have played Uncharted but it never had so many exciting moments like Tomb Raider
People actually liking this shootem up garbage is exactly why the REAL Tomb Raider franchise is dead. Nobody cares about solving puzzles or raiding tombs anymore. People just want to shoot dudes.

Not all people like mindless shooting games and bad hack & slash games like DmC AKA bosses say fuck you word

You should feel very guilty, you are nothing more than a thief.

I have to praise Square Enix not only for Tomb raider but mainly for the way they are handling the new studios they brought,they are actually letting the development teams put there invisions and creative imagination on the games, polishing the games and not rushing them out of the the door to consumers incompleted it seems.Free your mind no restrains is the best way development teams have to sucede in this industry.

Same here. I was kinda scared myself just thinking about Square Enix handling studios outside of Japan but they are doing an amazing job so far. Batman games are awesome and now Lara Croft is back in town like she should.

only Arkham Asylum is property of SE. Arkham city is owned by Warner Bros games.
