What The Hell Is Up With The Terrible Writing In Tomb Raider (2013)

A quick criticism/rant regarding the shock of how terrible the Tomb Raider reboot's writing is and the confusion as to how critically acclaimed it was. (Culture)

I question the writing while playing the game too. The part I laughed was when the guy with glasses tries to distract the ancient guardians by having a conversation with them. However I do feel the overall story was good. Things that should change for the sequel is have strong supporting characters,better voice acting and writing. Gameplay wise the game nailed it.

I found the story, overall, was OK - but what I really hated was some of the awful support characters. I was hoping more of her friends would be picked off. They were so stereotypical and had terrible dialogue it annoyed me every time she interacted with them.

The moments when Lara was in contact with Conrad or Angus were nicely done, but all the rest were annoying.

I agree with all your fixes. I even liked the gameplay, although thought that they could've found some more interesting ideas with which to implement the rope arrows and such. Maybe a few more puzzle sequences and not just ass sliding action might break the sequels pacing up a bit.
