How To Play Tomb Raider Like A Professional

Game Informer - Every now and then I try to impart some of the wisdom I've accrued from my distinguished career as a professional gamer to the common men and women out there who enjoy games merely as a hobby. I look at it as one of the responsibilities that comes with my natural talent, and my guides for Skyrim and Far Cry 3 have undoubtedly lifted countless players out of their once-accepted mediocrity, even if none of them have had the decency to thank me for my help. Today I'm back with a list of tips for surviving Lara Croft's latest adventure. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

Satire obviously:

"Situation: Your quest for Lara's fellow crew members brings you to a new location.

How an amateur handles it: Activate Lara's Survival Instinct mode to locate your objective and other items of interest.

How a pro handles it: Scour every inch of your new surroundings, breaking pots and jumping at nets that are clearly out of reach while wondering what they're for. Startle yourself by stumbling into a thorny bush and taking damage, then stand underneath a hanging lantern and jump repeatedly because you find it funny when Lara hits her head."

I agreed with you by the way. The game is extremely easy on hard mode. Great game, but way to easy. I hate the explorer vision though, and how every single area you can jump up to, on to, shimmy across, slide down with axe, etc. are all white. They could have done better with those. Otherwise, very good reboot of the series.
