Is Tomb Raider Definitive Edition more than a facelift?

With the upcoming Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition, Crystal Dynamics have just given the game a visual upgrade, they've also changed Lara's look. MWEB GameZone asks, why?

The story is too old to be commented.

Narrative tone and storyline needed serious addressing. My guess is that they're saving that for the sequel.

Seems almost like this edition was just made for nex-gen, but the changes were not that good

Or it could just mean that they placed too much emphasis on graphics and not the game itself. Rhianna Pratchett also isn't writing for the second game, so there must've been problems in that department.

Facelifts are good, luckily you can facelift again and again in a digital world, rather than the limited amount you can do in the real world :)

I stopped playing Tomb Raider a long long time ago, like the second or the third game...

So many Tomb Raiders. Wonder when it will die out.

plut0nash1502d ago

I doubt it will. The last played really well, so no reason to end the series.

As long as people keep buying them, they will keep making them. See Call of Duty :(

What do you even mean by that? You are clearly just saying what you think you are expected to say. That comment was nonsensical, at best.

Well, if the next game is crappy then it probably will be canned. If it's solid it gets a sequel probably.

HanCilliers1502d ago

Long as it keeps on improving like last Tomb Raider I don't see why it should end

I rather square Enix Remade Final Fantasy 1-9 instead with better graphics.

Screw fans...

lord zaid1502d ago

Haha. Thats exactly whats happening. You're a fan of FF and you're getting screwed.

Is this PS4/Xbox One version still 30 FPS? I hope not...

plut0nash1502d ago

Nope, the FPS depends on the game.
