I'll sum up the review, so clicking it is not necessary:

"I don't normally like any shooting in my Tetris or Bejeweled, or female protagonists, so I thought I'd give this one a review"

Commanderq1879d ago

wut?! The review is good.. which you clearly didn't read, otherwise you would have seen the last paragraph where the reviewer says they've played every Tomb Raider game.

This is the best review of this game I've read because I totally agree. This is not a true TR game, it's a TR game adjusted for shooter-fan, american-shooting-obsessed, ADHD crowd.

Irishguy951879d ago

This ain't a TR game - It's better.

From a Tomb Raider fan looking for a new TR and judging the new TR off the old ones - The new one is not good.

Judging the game on it's own merits. It's better than the old Tomb Raiders

kurac1879d ago

Well, it's better for some, for some it isn't. That's the question of individual taste. Better or worse, it's not a TR game. They could have made another shooter franchise and leave TR as it is. Low sales do not mean something is bad. Some of the best things in the world didn't have blockbuster sales. That goes for books, movies etc. Sales are good for mediocre things, adjusted for an average IQ and taste of the population in given time.

he reviewed it on 360. it's a completely different game on ps3 .. there are more tombs and it's less COD-alike. The graphics, story, everything are completely different. The wii version is the best with cute little pixel character like the lego games.

Blacktric1879d ago

Clearly you haven't played the Sega Gamegear version, which is the superior one.

It really didn't feel like a Tomb Raider game to me.
Don't get me wrong it was a good game and I enjoyed it but the atmosphere from the old games wasn't there.
I also really didn't like the new Lara Croft, she didn't sound English and all she did was whine and groan all the way through the game. Not to mention the complete lack of actual Tomb Raiding and puzzles. Still I have hope left for the sequel, hopefully they listen to the few complaints and we get our arse kicking Ms Croft back.

kurac1879d ago (Edited 1879d ago )

Totally agreed, this is a shooter, not what Tomb Raider game should be.

vikingland11879d ago

I had fun with this game. But yes it is more of a shooter.

mt1879d ago

I totally agree with you. it is a shooter game hiding under tomb raider shell.
but it is not bad I loved it.

Roper3161879d ago

Hopefully a sequel will go back to the more traditional style of a TR game where the emphasis is on exploring & puzzles.
