30 days since Tomb Raider's release, Gamer Horizon address the game's main criticisms and hope to put to bed the whole "mass murder" complaint once and for all.
I love this game. Absolutely. Sure I would have liked more puzzles, but they seem to have achieved what they set out to accomplish. I'm not a Tomb Raider fan but this has made me one. I agree with this guy completely.
Yeah I love this game too. A little bigger puzzles would have been nice, but I didn't mind it too much. I was just glad that you could actually figure out the puzzles they had without doing some insane abstract thinking. As for the "mass murder" thing, Bioshock infinite does the exact same thing and apparently that game is perfect.
Thanks or reading! I think the "difference" for Bioshock is twofold. First Booker is established as a man with a bad past plus he was a soldier. Two, he doesn't have a legacy and the baggage that comes with it.
I wasn't a big fan of Tomb Raiders back in the day. But last year i played my first Tomb Raiders game which was Tomb Raiders Guardian of the light and I loved it. I know I know its a different type of to tomb Raiders but it got me really interested in the Lore of tomb raiders. I am currently playing Tomb Raiders Underworld. I will finish this and buy the new one. What really interest me were the puzzle aspect of the game. It help take you away from the running and gunning atomosphere for a few minutes which to me is refreshing. Can't wait.
This is a Tomb raider game for people who were not fans of TR games in the first place. It's for shooter-fans. Also I find this cleft5 sentence hilarious: "I was just glad that you could actually figure out the puzzles they had without doing some insane abstract thinking." Which proves my point. Shooters got another game, puzzler-platformer-adventurers lost their biggest one :(
Just wanted to reiterate that I'm a huge Tomb Raider fan and have been since day one. And I loved this game. They've nailed the shooting and are on the right path with the tombs. Crystal Dynamics just need to add a bit more with the tombs for the sequel and it will have struck the perfect balance.
But that will never happen because people are "glad that you could actually figure out the puzzles they had without doing some insane abstract thinking." Insane abstract thinking is the basis of human intelligence. What are we (humans of the 21st century)? Mindles drones trained only to shoot moving targets that resemble Slavs or Arabs?
