Tomb Raider, A Good Game That Could Have Been Great

Tomb Raider, to its credit, is a good game. It was well worth the money and I am sad to hear that it still didn’t meet its target. But its not as nearly as good as it could have been. It could have been GoTY material with very slight changes to the way its played. (Crystal Dynamics, PC, PS3, Square Enix, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

It does borrow a LOT from Uncharted, but then again, when Uncharted came out it was dubbed 'Dude Raider'. I love Uncharted but Tomb Raider did have some features that were nice like level progression and so on, but the multiplayer was terrible!

It borrows NOTHING from Uncharted. Everything we see in Uncharted has been done in other games YEARS before Uncharted was ever released.

Each to his own i guess, it is an opinion piece after all :)

Every game copies from other games. Every movie copies from other movies. It's the way the world works.

Halo 4 copied the 'ordnance drops' from Call Of Duties Care package. Call Of Duty copied the Theater mode from Halo.

It doesn't bother me, it's just adding great features to games.

No, its not opinion, its a fact. There is NOTHING original about Uncharted.

This game was great. I literally have no idea what this guy is talking about. I loved that this chick was a badass. Who wants to play as some scared girl who wants to run from the bad guys. This chick said, "f*ck that." She stood her ground and f*cked a lot of grown ass men up.

I have zero complaints about this game. And it isn't an Uncharted clone, the structure of the game is way different. Crystal Dynamics did this cool linear/open world model that I haven't seen before and it's really cool.

I actually liked the fact that she yells at them cause I also did, it's so nice watching the scared little girl turning into a badass.

Spoilers@@@@

It was all good until a demon casting a lightning bolt and crashed the plane. Than it just went downhill from there.

I liked how it started, and when lara went on the pole and made the rescue call sitting on the tip of the pole high up in the beautiful mountain, my heart was trembling, best moment of the game for me.

Than I was wonderin how she gonna climb back down. Than after she came down w a rope I was like wtf? Than the demon uses the weather and crashes the rescue plane I was like wtf? I thought the crazy tribal ppl would lay ambush on the ground for them. But that didnt happen.

Many gamers probably liked the battle against the oni. And due to square enix influence, they probably put that there. But for me it just killed it.

The somewhat realistic element all gone. Ill disregard the plotholes since most plots have loopholes.

I loved this game best thing they could of done I thought. I just hope with recent comment sayin they didn't make enough I hope they do another.
As this is I think the right approach for tomb raider games from now on.
From the ending I can't help but think they will be a sequel.
Sure at times felt bit uncharted but I liked that after all uncharted had some unique concepts but what's wrong in playing a game that makes you remember another let's face it every game has same mechanics gameplay wise weather it's raceing or FPS or 3rd person ect.

I totally agree! I am not sayi I liked the game too, and I am sure there will be a sequel, its a shame they didn't achieve the sales target though, this game deserved it.
