Tomb Raider – Terrible Character With Terrible Games

Tomb Raider, insert whatever number or inane subtitle here, is a terrible series of games. The original Tomb Raider is a fantastic example of just how terrible 3D controls were during that wild time when we thought using a d-pad to control in a three-dimensional world was a bloody fantastic idea.

Not terrible, more like mediocre.

I think the author is exaggerating for humor.

Yes the controls were bad, but that's because there was no analogue stick. Yes people enjoyed her angular breasts, but that's because, boys.

But once you look past that, people really enjoyed the acrobatics and the puzzles, and the varied enemies. And playing a badass female in a medium dominated by machismo was a breath of fresh air.

Says you. But millions of players would disagree with you. These games were fun back then and they still are. They are meant to be played on PC. I beat them on PC and then tried them on consoles and the controls just don't work with a pad. If you think these games are bad, I'm curious to see what you think a good game is? Tomb Raider 1,2, and 4 were classics that can't be touched and the music in them is incredible.
