Oh hun, such a drama queen.

I'm liking it so far, but I don't like it enough to buy the game at launch. It doesn't have the same feel that the gameplay videos demonstrated, especially here: https://www.youtube.com/wat...

The overall score is not an average based on the score for different categories reviewed. Sorry if that doesn't make sense to you. It's just how it is.

Well, that could be a region issue. I did mention the United States, and I do not know how recent PSN allowed for cancellations from your Account Management page. The last time I checked, pre-order cancellations had to be done via Customer Support. Obviously, if I'm wrong, I'm wrong, but it doesn't alter the fact that you are unable to get a true refund.

Yes, most people who would pre-order a digital title would most likely end up buying something else digitally d...

Actually, no, you're paying full price for an incomplete game. For $60 at launch, the game is not finished and while technically, that does get you all of the content released in the months subsequent, it doesn't alter the fact that the game is launching in an unfinished state.

I didn't say anything about not supporting Early Access. I said I'm not supporting the toxic practice of releasing unfinished content at full retail price. There is a huge difference. W...

One of the main reasons why I'm going to pass on this until the physical copy is available, is because preordering on PS4 is essentially irreversible. Once you preorder something on PS4, good luck getting Sony customer support to cancel the preorder and refund your money. I wanted to have a go at the beta, but I don't want to be stuck with the game in the event that the beta helps me determine that I don't want to purchase the game at launch.

However, I do have my...

I can confirm: one of my friends posted a picture of their custom plaque. Looks pretty nice, aside from the grammar errors.

@Chivas11 - how do you know he's talking about Endurance Mode? His review is so bloody vague, there's no plausible method to determine what he's talking about when he references the non-existent online portion. On top of that, Endurance Mode is not an online thing at all nor is it anything to do with multiplayer, which just further lessens the likeliness that he's talking about Endurance Mode or has even played the blooming game!

Yes, in my opinion. I've already got it preordered. Absolutely love that game.

Yes, that was the initial conclusion I came to until I read that section a few more times. It's very vague and implies that ROTTR features more than just leaderboards, and is enough of a different direction from its predecessor to complain about.

However, the review doesn't even mention the leaderboards. It is incredibly vague and when it comes to opinions and reviews, vague statements come from those who haven't even experienced what it is they're talking abo...

Have you a source for this confirmation?

Rise of the Tomb Raider doesn't even have multiplayer. How can you score something that doesn't exist?

As I read this review, it honestly sounds like you haven't even played Rise of the Tomb Raider.

I couldn't care less if Shawn Ashmore is the face of Quantum Break. It doesn't make the game better or worse; it's just a person. I mean, I love the Ashmore twins, so being able to see Shawn is going to be great, but I'm not going to be playing the game for him. And even if I was, there's nothing wrong with that.

Quantum Break looks like it's going to be an amazing game. I'd love to see it on the PS4 as well, but such is life. If your only complain...

Are you sure you played the right game? It did have nitrous, customization, sprint, circuit and cops.

Well, that's your opinion. :)

I don't think Rise of the Tomb Raider's graphics could have been any better than they were, which is why the graphics themselves earned the highest score possible. We'll see how the third game looks. I am well aware that graphics are not considered art design, zackdollars.

Regarding your comment about how my point about recycling and copy/paste work should have brought the score down a bit more: I found those issu...

Indeed, I was wondering the same thing. It'll be terribly easy to spot for anyone who played Tomb Raider (2013) with at least one eye open.

Obviously, I found Rise of the Tomb Raider to be pretty spectacular, hence giving it the score I did. I just needed to address what I experienced as an issue in my own review, like anyone would, really.

- Spoiler Alert -

To be honest, the copy and paste moments were not THAT big of a deal, except for ...

Using real actors against programmed, computer generated imagery couldn't be further from a relevant comparison, maylovebehate. I think the copy and paste issues are relevant, not only with Tomb Raider but with any franchise that chooses to recycle animations, elements, themes, etc. It makes it hard to differentiate between original and sequel if the two are nearly identical.

I'm not saying Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider are identical, but there are enough si...

Very smart move; with so many games out there, AAA or not, gamers have a lot of trepidation before throwing down $60. Rise of the Tomb Raider is a must-have, in my opinion, so I'm glad people will be able to make an informed decision before purchasing a full copy.

Because Laura Bailey is FLAWLESS, that's why.

Are you kidding me? I wouldn't really call that an Easter egg either, but that is clearly Nirnroot from the Elder Scrolls series.

Dear God, will you please push Rockstar into working on Agent? It's been like eight years since I'd originally heard about it.
