Is it just me or is Legends a lot easier than previous tomb raider games.
I normally struggle to finish them but this was really easy and totally disappointing. I think it has been dumbed down to get younger players interested.

Personally, i dont think it was a disapontment but a sucess.
Enough about me, yes Lengend was easier than TR1-6 but I think that the gamplay is great. I think you right about CD 'dumbing it down' to get others intreasted.
Overall it was a success IMO.:) :wve:

You are right. Its a lot easier. I was really looking forward to this game, and i have had a hard time getting over the disappointment of it for me.

Ignore the first post, dont let it put you off, and welcome to the forum :wve:

Dont get me wrong I still enjoyed the game but I wanted it to go on for a lot longer, it was far too short.

Thats ok, that is what YOU think. We dont all have to feel this way you know! Please dont be rude, there is no need for it. You might not agree with other peoples opinion, but you have to stand back and appreciate it, whether you like it or not.

Bye bye marco! :ton: Guess not all people can be grown up enough to have a conversation from opposing views without calling someone a name. Ban him! I don't agree with some people here either, but I don't call them names. I'm sure there are pleanty that don't agree with me either, they aren't being jerks to me.

This topic has been discussed enough.......Is Legend a lil on the easy side.....sure, but it makes up for this in all other area IMO

Cd has not been with us for the whole TR ride, and they underestimated hardcore TR fans' abilities to get through the game so quickly......they also dont want to turn off casual gamers by making very hard games which is the reason many people didnt like the original TR's........by making the game easier, they bring in new fans and sell more copies, which makes more money.....while this approch may annoy some, these companies are in the videogame biz to make money, not to satisfy ONLY hardcore TR fans.......

Face it, people are never going to stop discussing the same topics, especially when you can't search the lot of them.

Besides, how are new people going to know?

Legend is a pearl! :tmb: Maybe it is a bit on the simple side, but also very much on the beautifull side! I still haven't found all secrets as i am sorting all out myself (no help). I don't play everyday, and don't rush. I replay levels, enjoy the locations, the controls, as it is a fluid game. I guess it plays a role that i enjoy its full beauty in Next Generation @ 1600x1200. It hasn't bored me one second. :)

I definately agree with Joseph, it may be simple and easy. But for a first attempt this is brilliant from Crystal Dynamics :tmb:

Yeah, I agree.
But I still have to get used to Zip, it keeps me busy the whole day and night.

There has been a lot of back and forth about this topic. For the most part the discussion has been civil. There is a sticky thread that contains folk's recommendations for improving TR8 and it is a great place to view how others have felt and ways that the next game can be improved.

Welcome again.

I think the game would have been much better if they kept the things they showed up at E3 and the content in the first and second trailer they released. I'm still satisfied though

l think the game was a good first attempt by CD and as an introduction to the new Lara, and yes l am expecting the next game to be longer although possibly it will not be any more difficult
