I Changed My Mind About Tomb Raider 2, It’s Alright – SplitScreen

Rick writes... "I was a bit rough on Tomb Raider 2 for the PC on the previous episode of SplitScreen. I should point out that while it’s fair to say that although the maneuvering aspects of the game haven’t aged well, the rest holds up. I found Lara’s insane acrobatics to be very satisfying once I got the hang of them." (Culture, PC, Retro, Tomb Raider 2)

I am glad to hear it :)

The controls are soo old skool but satisfying with the side, backstep etc to jump or sommersault as said once you get the hang of things :p.

Lara will always be a classic for me, i have them currently on shield, so much fun :)

My only wish is that we were playing the PS1 version instead. I hear that's much better.

It is, i recently was gifted the collection on steam but ps1 is still my fav.

So easy to emulate on devices if you ever try :)

I miss these classic Tomb Raider games. The new one just does not cut it for me. Classic Lara just makes the new Lara seem like a complete wuss.

New Lora is a complete wuss. That's how they wanted her to be. They wanted her to be vulnerable and innocent.

I let them slide this time because it's supposed to be her origin story and I didn't expect her to be a badass from the start. But they better toughen her up in the sequel. There is no reason to carry on the innocent act, especially since she litteraly slaughtered 100s of men singlehandedly.

"New Lora is a complete wuss. That's how they wanted her to be. They wanted her to be vulnerable and innocent. "

They just completely ruined the franchise for me with that last game. Lara learned how to survive when she was kid when her parents died. So it was completely frustrating for me playing the latest TR game when she is acting like she is learning this and that for the first time. I kept saying to myself. Who is this woman?? Because its certainly not Lara Croft. Just rebooted garbage I guess. If you are gonna reboot something. Then do it right and not half a**ed.
