Tomb Raider's back to basics approach reconnects it with it's roots which makes the game a much more promising entry this November
Personally, its probably the first Xbox One game I'm going to buy day one after a long break. After Ryse, you can forgive me for not going nuts over even timed exclusives.
Meh I will play the PC version instead. I remember playing the PS3 and 360 version of the Tomb Raider reboot and it looked like booty. I couldn't even play it.
Get real.You couldn't even play it.One of the best looking games last gen bud.
It was nearly unplayable for me.
Did you not have a PC last gen to play the first one. Then why mention the ps3/360 version if you so call plan on getting the second one for PC. Troll hard much.
I have both versions. I got the PC version after the fact. And there's a difference between good looking and then you try to put a good looking game on a limited system. The resolution is low, frame rate is low, and there's too many jaggies. People here like to give free passes to games.
I own the PC one and its amazing, but I am getting the sequel on X1. I am not waiting for it, there are too many great games to play next year.
You sound like a bit of a knob.
i wish they kept the old school graphics...i miss old Lara
Agreed, they should at least have dlc/unlockable skins to use. I enjoyed going through the games after i beat them finding treasures and doing time trials to unlock costumes and stuff. Even the top down version has additional skins.
Yup, triangle boobed Lara ftw
Just to paraphrase Tacoman " Is she even human?" Lol
The ridiculously skinny Lara with incredibly oversized boobs? No thanks, I'm not 10 years old anymore..
Old Lara has more personality and confident than the new one, you need to not judge by face value
Progamer - the new Lara is far more human and relatable due to not being as confident as the old one.
Tomb raider reboot gave me Uncharted Vibe. This one from the extended trailer gave me mix of Uncharted and Last of Us(lara hunting in snow in trailer looked similar to part where ellie hunts enemies during winter). I like both Uncharted and Last of Us but i want Tomb raider to be tomb raider the original which millions loved.
This Tomb Raider only resembles Uncharted in the Platforming. The action has a much heavier focus on stealth and a slower cautious approach, as she is placed in more of a survivalist type of role than an action role like Nate is.
That does sound like The Last of Us, actually.
like the last of us
@Master-H The Last of Us is a fantastic game but it didn't invent those stealth or scavenging mechanics. In reality, Rise of the Tomb Raider has very similar stealth and scavenging mechanics to Tomb Raider (2013), the latter of which came out before The Last of Us. One of the enhancements in Rise of the Tomb Raider over the previous game is the ability to climb into trees and stalk from above, and The Last of Us never had such a mechanic. The point is, Rise of the Tomb Raider seems like a clear evolution of the modern Tomb Raider reboot more than anything.
I don't know if even more Uncharted with Rise. Uncharted goes all over while the TR reboot was on an island and that's it.
Tomb raider is not TLOU, nor uccharted...they are 2 games night n day apart, when will people see?
A much better sell would it being multiplatform like the series has usually been in the past
Can't disagree with that. :)
Well i'm getting it day one. Hopefully its just as much fun as the reboot. This ,Halo5, MGS 5 and Rare replay should keep me busy for a long time.
Off topic but did N4G change the comment bubbles from three to five? Lol. Because I was knocked downed a bubble from three to two a few days back now I have five. :/
Yep, I have 5, up from 3. So does just about everyone else here. :)
Yeah, they reset the bubbles. Most people with less than 5 bubbles now have 5 bubbles. Although I did see a few strange things like that "masterfox" guy, who used to have one bubble and now he has something like 10 bubbles. What's up with that?
Why the bubble fairy happened. :)
I went from three to ten bubbles, but I'd gladly go back to three to see the people who had one bubble go back down. That's the last thing this site needs is having the worst of the worst trolls having the ability to comment ten times.
Back to basics? There wasn't even real Tombs in 2012's Tomb raider LOL
Yes there were... Did you play it?
You mean those side "tombs" that a brain dead child could solve lol?
They said this about the first game. They said how the first game was sticking to it's roots Fact is they lied and I think they are lying about this one It will be another Uncharted clone. A decent game sure but not Tomb Raider. I don't know why they didn't just make this a new IP Worst part about this is that people are actually believing them.....AGAIN ¬¬
So we should take your word for it? Are you a dev working at CD? As for TR being an Uncharted clone that's bullshit. Lara does the same exact things in TR 2013 as she did in previous TR games. Yes, with less focus on exploration and puzzle solving but TR formula is still there. A formula that Uncharted also follows.
No. You should take my word for it because like I've juat said above they said this last time LOL....SHE DID THE SAME THING AS PAST GAMES......Whaaaaa Didn't play the originals much did you.....figures
They said it last time? So what? Is TR 2013 the same game as Rise of TR? Have you played Rise of TR or are you working on it? Played the originals more than you it seems. At least I know that TR is the Wolfenstein/doom of action adventure games. I know that it was released in 1996 when 3D was taking over and I know that it was the game that set the template for ALL action adventure games. It was the 1st game to have all the elements that we associate with action adventure games. Exploration, solving puzzles, swimming, platforming, climbing and shooting enemies. In later games driving vehicles, hand to hand combat, stealth and more stuff was added to that template. Isn't that what Lara and the Drake do in their games? Isn't that TR 2013 and Uncharted template? If I'm wrong go ahead and tell me wich game before TR had all those elements combined in a single game and set the template for all action adventure games. I'll be waiting but please don't say that it was Uncharted. BTW did you see the Drake's ice pick to free climb (instead of Lara'pickaxe) or his grapple hook in Uncharted 4 PSX demo? ND is even taking inspiration from Crystal Dynamics TR games.
There's more to this game that we've seen so far. With heavy action set pieces and scripted events taken from Uncharted,survivalist stealth emphasis taken from TLoU, farming/crafting and metroidvania esque equipment progression it makes Tomb Raider it own game tho inspired by others. Topping it off with Tombs and mind bending puzzles to find items of archaeology that feed the lore or educate in some instances.... We're in for a gem this Holiday and i can't wait.
I never liked the original Tomb Raider games but liked the reboot so I hope they keep the things liked (Bow and Arrow Mechanic which was fresh at the time, the Metroidvania element of going to previous areas for collectibles after obtaining upgrades that allow reaching new areas, Uncharted style shooting and more developed story)
The best part about this game is that it won't be on the PS4. @thricetold Nope, Phil Spencer said he won't invest into game that will come to the rival platform. Unless Square Enix remakes the game (like ninja gaiden sigma 2 or Dead Rising chop till you drop) it won't be on PS4. Microsoft is the publisher and they paid for the assets for this game. Why would Microsoft invest so much money and time to let the exact same game on PS4? SquareEnix will have to remake the game essentially to get the game on the PS4. I highly doubt it is in their best interests to do this.
You do understand this is a TIMED exclusive? This is most definitely absolutely positively coming to the ps4 bud.
You do understand timed =/= PS4. If it did Ryse, DR3, and Titanfall would be on PS4.
"The best part about this game is that it won't be on the PS4." Good gravy, that's enough internet for today. And yes, it most probably will come to the ps4.
Well obviously Microsoft isnt going to pay for the Ps4 port. Whenever ROTTR eventually comes to Ps4 im sure Sony will be collaborating with Square Enix. Why are you so against there being a Ps4 version?:/
Sony or SquareEnix themselves have to be willing to pay to remake this game. I highly doubt this will happen.
Doesn't affect me in the slightest but you're in for huge disappointment. It's already been announced as a TIMED exclusive unless ms wrote another big check, for how long is still unknown at this time. @343 None of those 3 games were announced as TIMED exclusive. Titanfall was initially said to be so, until ms cut a bigger check. However, with the trouncing xbox is taking we know TF2 is already announced for ps4 and ms AIN'T gonna allow the xbox division, a division the board wants to get rid of by the way to write another big check for a PERMANENT 3rd party exclusive. Bet you thought mass effect would NEVER arrive on ps3, how'd that turn out for you guys?
http://www.videogamer.com/x... Here is one link regarding Ryse. Ryse could be on PS4. The problem is Microsoft helped them develop the game. So they probably won't let them use their assets to make the PS4 version. So they have to remake the game essentially and it isn't really worth their money/time to do so. Also, it is assumed that Microsoft allowed EA to buy back the rights to the original Mass Effect (regarding assets). At that point in the generation there was no point for Microsoft to hold on to the title and more money to be made from selling the game than keeping it . That is why you got a comic book strip for mass effect 2 to explain the events of the first one instead of a simple port of the first game.
Kind of.. well, underwhelmed by RoTR, especially after seeing the full UC4 gameplay reveal. Here's hoping the story and "actual" tombs pull off some major moments.
i feel tomb raider and uncharted must get back the unassissted jumps , its so ridiculous to be jumping wrong and the game just assists u to the right path
