Tomb Raider Review | The Game Effect

Lara Croft is back, but is she better than ever? (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360) 9.2/10

Turns out she is better than ever. This game has been unexpectedly good so far. Stability issues aside, that is.

sorry but this game is not TR, because if you've ever played a Tomb Raider game before, then you'll know that this is not it. The Tomb Raider of 2013 will be forever remembered for catering for the masses and giving the audience what they assume we want which in short are recycled broken game mechanics, set pieces, quick time events and shooting. There is nothing remotely satisfying about this game and considering how high the review scores have been, makes me wonder if they were really playing this at all. I have found absolutely no resemblance to anything positive they have mentioned in any review I've seen, with the exception of the graphics. Crystal Dynamics have previously done a stellar job of the series but now I think their creativity has been stunted. This game is $hit if you compare it with for example Tomb Rider 3 and deserves not to be treated with respect.

Because you never shoot guns in the psx Tomb Raider, right?

Games have changed.

This is like Lara's Batman Begins.

"... and deserves not to be treated with respect."

Arrogant kid is arrogant.

English is not my language and even I understand the meaning of the word "reboot".

I played and loved the original when it first came out. This reboot is a masterpiece, IMO. The Dark Knight brought new life and respect to Batman movies, and this does the same for TR. I hope there are more ahead.

and there is no dino killing, no dragon slaying, no back flip shooting, no swimming and no dual wielding handguns, all I'm doing in the sack of game is shooting human after human after human after human after human and it is just pathetically boring. I never finished the game because I just got bored. Worst of all, I'll never ever love or respect Lara Croft ever again, I loved Lara as the unbeatable badass babe who could hold her own against monsters and dinosaurs, but now she's a pathetic man needing baby who has become just downright annoying with her crying, moaning and screaming. I'll never play Tomb Raider again if it continues in this bull**** direction. 4.5/10 One of my most boring games of 2013.

If the game was a technical mess, then I could at least respect this as your personal opinion.
Everything said and done, the game, for all intents and purposes, is rather well designed and your ranting is little more than just that . . . a rant.
Try and learn how to not let your personal view of something skew the quality of the overall package.

"...baby who has become just downright annoying with her crying, moaning and screaming."

Sounds remarkably similar to your whining about changes made in this reboot.
