The two adventures go head to head.
I guess Uncharted 4 since ROTTR isn't on PS4 yet!
if Tomb Raider didnt have that ridiculous metamorphosis of Lara into that enforced all-the time-moaning-english caricature would be far more enjoyable ..though no comparison with U4, the game is just to high to even compare with TR
Played and enjoyed both but Uncharted 4 is the more memorable game.
Uncharted is overrated. I did more walking around than anything. Beautiful game. And I mean beautiful. Tomb raider is way more open with more things to do besides collect the shiny dots on the ground. The story had me more interested. The combat is more intricate. Way more ways to kill. The stealth works better. The guns feel better. Being able to come back to old areas with new equipment to reach places you couldnt before is definitely a plus. I felt like more of an explorer. The mp may give uc4 some legs but the single player is just average. The jokes weren't funny. The brother just felt outta place and forced in. The story was actually very predictable. Lots and lots of walking and lookin around . then mash triangle to open a door. I hope you PS only guys really give tomb raider a shot when it drops. You'll see what I mean.
I get to play both on PS4, so to me this question makes no sense. Well maybe not TR at the moment, but I don't miss it. Uncharted 4 is giving me my adventure fix. Amazing game!!
Well i think the question may be directed to gamers who either play on ps4 and xbox or pc or all of them. Unfortunately you may be left out for the moment my condolences.
Ya or ROTTR on X1 if someone doesn't have a PS4.
....or you could just be a gamer and get an X1 and/or PC.... catch up to Gen 8. PS4 is a fine system, but if you ONLY have a PS4, you're missing at least half of the great gaming experiences this gen. If you can't afford one....I get it, and I'm sorry....but if that's not the reason, it's your loss.
I can afford one, don't care don't want one. Your argument is invalid
If one has a PS4 there isn't much need for an X1 or PC unless you really want games only available on those systems, so X1 actually there is less need since PC will get most of its exclusive games. Plenty of games to choose from on PS4, with a lot more coming as well. I'd recommend Valkyria Chronicles Remaster to anyone that'll finish up UC4 soon and it releases next week. Definitely not one to miss, and was overlooked by many last gen. As far as ROTTR is concerned, they can just wait until the end of this year and play it if they want. I've played it already, and it's also worth playing, but with UC4 out, there's no real rush unless they're only into the adventure genre.
Half of the great gaming experiences lol I have both and the only games that would fit that criteria is halo 5 and sunset overdrive. Now I did enjoy quantum break but that's not a great game so I don't know where you got half from other than thin air.
I'd have to disagree, i have both systems but pretty much only play my ps4 as i don't like gears, halo, and am tired of forza. I was happy to finally turn my xbox on to play quantum break but truly disappointed once i played it. At this point I'd say it was a,waste of money . Depends on what exclusives you like.
So what about if I can afford one but don't want it? What about if I think half the games offer this gen are garbage?????
There's nothing above mediocre on X1. But I do like the Funimation app better on it so I guess there's that...
If you like UC4, ROTTR will probably satisfy your itch for playing a game in the genre, and vice versa. It's a pretty good game overall. I think UC4 is better, but nothing bad to say about ROTTR other than the main character is still insufferably whiny. Otherwise, check out ROTTR when it comes out on PS4, probably at the end of this year.
Both are great games, but at the end of the day, Uncharted takes top spot. One of the biggest problems with the new TR games, imo, are that the characters are all throwaways. You don't care about them. This was slightly fixed in RoTR, but not to the degree I wanted. Don't even get me started on the 2013 "Endurance Crew" characters. Throwaways. All of them, except for the guy who broke his leg. Now, in Uncharted 4, I cared about every single character, from Sam to Sully to Jameson (the shipyard owner.) ND really has a way of sucking you into their narratives and completely immersing you in the story, the way that no other developer does. I preferred the looser, wilder gameplay of Uncharted over RoTR as well. Also, RoTR's weapon upgrade system feels like filler, whereas in TLoU for example, it felt meaningful, since parts and ammo could be so scarce.
Seriously, play both! They are both good.
^ This is the right answer. Both are amazing in some similar and also very different ways which is great.
Yup. Definitely going to pick it up on PS4 when it drops. But seriously UC4 is a friggin Masterpiece.
When is TR coming out for the PS4?
As soon as micros paycheck has ran its course, or you know work out how long the game has been out, subtract that from 12 months and theres a rough release date.
They announced Holiday 2016
I'd say you can't go wrong with either. Both are good games. Not sure why it needs to be a one or the other type of scenario....it's not like consoles only play one game.
Rise of the tomb raider was better this time around. The gameplay is unmatched.
I'm chapter 18 in uncharted 4 and I have to say that so far I agree with you.Tomb Raider keeps up the pace for the full game, where as U4's pace is up and down.Still a superb achievement.
That's because the story in U4 is better and is not static like TR. You get intense moments and light moments. TR takes itself too serious. Not fun @Below Yess! I have watched TheRadBrad, and it is an improvement over the 1st. Yet, the tone is the same and the story is not as engaging. You are often dropped into a playground to explore and look for stuff, raid tombs. That's cool, but the storytelling is slowed down. That's what I meant above and probaly what he means with the pacing
@ XiKurapikaKurta Werent you just saying you didn't play ROTTR cuz its not on PS4
Oh so now pace matters, i thought it was frame rate, no wait it was resolution, no wait it was......... hard to keep up with you jaded gamer babies anymore.
The combat in Uncharted is way better though... Edit: thank god it's so easy to read comment history's now, you seem to think everything is better than Uncharted 4 lmao. Xbox fanboys smh...
Nah I think combat is way more fun in rotr. Story and characters is uc4s bread and butter. Rotr does combat puzzles way better
Don't you get tired of coming to every uc article spewing hate
Um, nothing he said was hate....what you said was....and this isn't a UC4 article...it's a UC4 AND TR article....he was just expressing his opinion
Ya... You obviously haven't played UC4....
How would you know? You obviously haven't played TR....as you stated above . Both are fantastic games...but he is right...TR has MUCH better gameplay
@Pistol It really doesn't, if RoTTR didn't have a great bow the gun play would be terrible, all the guns sound terrible and it feels terrible due to the input lag that plagues the game. Uncharted 4's gun play is in a completely different league, with it feeling great to actually have shoot outs, run around and it gives you much more variety, all with unmatched animation quality. Platforming wise, neither does it particularly well imo, with Uncharted 4's being pretty much just automatic and RoTTR's being horribly floaty. Writing wise I don't think anyone will ever try and argue the garbage that TR has is even remotely close to Uncharted 4, which is one of the best written games period. Oh, and my gamertag isn't hidden, if you think I haven't played it.
Sooo, Xbot. It must kinda hurt you to know that uncharted 4 beat ROTTR? What must hurt you even more is the fact that ROTTR on ps4 will beat ROTTR on xbone :-D
what must hurt is that both are good games and you fanboys are lame.
Lol hit the nail on the head.
Get both, they're great games!
Wish I could tell you, but the Sony Store won't accept my Credit Card payment and support tells me I have to wait 24 hours before I can try again. Seriously Sony?
Get a better credit rating. Or make sure you have the cash before even trying to buy it. Or just walk into a store and pick up a physical copy. Multiple solutions to your problem. Pick one.
It's there new security policy, it's kinda stupid. Just enter in you card info the exact same way it appears on your bank statement, if you enter it in any other way it won't accept it then lock you our after to many attempts.
So annoying. My bank marked the transaction as fraud. I was able to clear the issue but now Sony has my account locked in that 24 hour waiting cycle. Oh well, Doom it is.
They're both good and worth getting.
Honestly? haha Uncharted 4 is a fuc**ng intense masterpiece compared to Rise of the tomb raider. Crystal dynamics seriously needs a good writer.
I can't believe people actually disagreed with you. I'm pretty sure people become blind to bad game design and storytelling when they play TR because they are too busy imagining life with Lara as their girlfriend.
http://www.neogaf.com/forum... Bad game design
I guess its because its a nearly perfect game. People don't usually complain about a average game that obviously needs a lot of improvement. Dont get this as a offense guys, I also played the rise of the tomb raider on my X1, However the most annoying thing is that the character in this game is just so dull and I dont really care about them whereas Uncharted 4 I even care about Rafe lol.
@lolo I considered myself during my first play through why they didn't just use their ropes. Seems like the logical thing to do. I don't know if I"d call it bad game design, but does have a factor in breaking immersion. It's just one of those things you're supposed to accept during the suspension of disbelief. Same way you can bust open some doors in a game, but can't break through some rotting wood on a window. The mechanic is there to serve a purpose, not be an all inclusive way to do everything.
I actually really loved the Tomb Raider Reboot it was great. I want to play both Uncharted 4 and rise of the tomb raider. I just like action adventure in general. I always have ever since PS1.
Played both and both are 9/10 in my book.
I've played both and would probably rate them has follows. Rotr an 8.5 maybe 9 and uc 4 a 9.5 to 10.
For the longest it was 9's for both to me...but the more I play UC4...the more it's looking like 8.5...the clunky controls and horrible cover system are killing the game for me.
@pistolsatdawn I've seen you trash Sony nonstop and never say a bad thing about Xbox games so with that in mind I just had to reply to your ridiculous comment. There's nothing clunky about uc 4 controls and the cover system is far from horrible like I know it's your "opinion" but come on no reviews ever bring stuff like that up all you hear is how improved the gunplay is and how it smooth it is to control and that's because what you said is just not true. I liked rotr but the platforming and climbing was floaty as hell and the gunplay is beyond average besides using the bow which is why stealth is such a heavy part of that game because it would never stand up if it had to count on its gunplay only. Oh and the level design, character animations, story, characters,set pieces etc are nowhere near as good in rotr compared to uc4. Regardless I really liked rotr and I'll probably play it again when it releases for ps4 since it will most likely have the dlc which I didn't get a chance to play
@PistolsAtDawn Why would anyone take you seriously the story a lone makes U4 a better game, visually well there is no argument there U4 is also the winner. You can have a preference but when you start making comments as to why you like one game over the other specially when your argument is the controls which are fine to me makes me wonder and considering your track record everything you say becomes suspect.
If you like action adventure,get both.The end.
Uncharted. The Tomb Raider reboots are trash and nothing like a Tomb Raider game. Tomb Raider is just trying to copy Uncharted now so you might as well get the game that does Uncharted best (and that's Uncharted).
Ugh...they're very much Tomb Raider games. They're reboots, though, so of course there are some differences. Mostly for the better, I'd say. And Tomb Raider copying Uncharted? In some ways, yeah. But all games borrow from other games. Uncharted 4 itself is clearly influenced by other games, including Tomb Raider. I mean, the rock pick and rope swing in Uncharted 4 are minor twists on things already in the Tomb Raider reboot games, for example. I'm a big fan of both series and I can point out numerous ways they seem to have influenced each other.
Oh ever since the first reboot thats the first thing i said when i started playing, this game is trying to be uncharted so bad. Nothing like the original tomb raiders. Still a fun game but a straight copy.
Aside from exploration, puzzle solving, platforming, climbing, swimming, killing goons/animals/supernatural creatures, boss battles, hidden treasures, QTEs, stealth, hand to hand combat... you're right, TR reboots are nothing like the original TR games. Did you even play any TR game before the reboots?
If you ignore the Metascore on Metacritc or here which clearly point out which game is much better As someone who played and finished both Uncharted 4 easily For me The input lag in ROTR and bad combat made every gunfire dreadful and the story and acting killed that game for me. while uncharted 4 gameplay was top notch and the story,acting,graphics,setting were all perfect. there is a reason why uncharted is higher that much in the rating.
Whatever floats your boat. Play Uncharted now. Then when Tomb Raider has its improved PS4 version released play that on its PS4 release. Why choose? You will have both on PS4 at least.
Why wait when one can play both now. MulticonsoleOwnerFTW!!
Lol rooki monster owns
Ain't nobody buying a console to play a timed exclusive lol.
