great game, great prequel. only going to get better. loved the game and hoping for a dlc.

colonel1791147d ago

Exactly! The series is setup to become great. This one was a great introduction and the next one has a great potential, especially being on the next consoles.

Things can only get better

IAMERROR1147d ago

What? I honestly thought it was an amazing prequel.

Thatguy-3101147d ago

Think the story could have been a lot better. The thing I enjoyed the most out of the game was the gameplay. It was fun yet simple. Hopefully on the next game they have a better way of tackling the narrative and making it interesting.

Kamikaze1351146d ago

That's how I feel. I really hope we get a sequel so,liar to this experience.

lonesoul651146d ago

I thought the gameplay and the story really held up well. I'm excited to take another adventure with Lara in the future.

The last 15 minutes felt a touch rushed but maybe that is just me.

If you had a chance to play it on he PC in 3D then you were for sure treated to one of the best experiences in gaming...well...ever. I highly recommend this if you have it available to you.

Dear Journalist / author, I am fairly certain this game is NOT a prequel but rather a reboot of the franchise....and a fantastic one at that.

This is the state on gaming media my friend they will say whatever to get hits

Tomb Raider is a reboot and for the 1st game it was an excellent entry, now I am hopefully the sequel will see huge improvements. I am hoping this is like uncharted 1-2 different, uncharted 1 was great but had room for improvement and than UC2 set new bar for single player story and polish

Now TR2 I hope is the same way improvements wise

People need to stop hating HD recognize a very good game when they see one

febreeze11147d ago

For me uncharted 1 was meh and I wasn't looking forward to uncharted 2 but still bought it. The leap between those two games was like a next gen leap. Tomb Raider is better than most games this gen and cannot wait for the second.

Well you look at UC and it came out of no where, I don't remember much advertisement. The 2 main complains I remember we're shooting feels loose and game is too short

But what ND archived with UC2 like you said t was like a next gen leap. It deserved all those record number GOTY awards it got

Now here is what you have to remember UC1 came out a while back and systems tech was new and people were still figuring out, in a way Indiana jones and TR are the reason uncharted exist but than UC series is the reason why TR got a reboot. ND showed what people need in a action adventure game and SE saw how well UC series sold overall

Story was way too short in TR like the first UC
The main character is developed but everyone else I'm TR let under developed and shallow
She went from not being able to know what to do to a killing machine and that was a big disconnect
And if you gonna add MP polish it otherwise make it single player only an game length 12-15 hrs. Single player games can be successful just look at bioshock infinite

So while TR reboot was good it has huge room of improvements And now the prospect of next gen consoles make it even better so can't wait to see and play how well the next game turns out to be

This is a great game.

I advise the author think twice before he write this kind shit.

matrixman921147d ago

how is it a prequel when absolutely nothing else that has happened matters

XishikiX1147d ago (Edited 1147d ago )

it's not a prequel to any of the other games... The article tries to disguise a topic that's been discussed with a misleading title.

it's a reboot/origin story of a new universe.

You can argue about what the gameplay should/should not be in a tomb raider game. But that topic has been done many times, and this article does less than most articles did at the time of this games release.
