Thumbs down My Chronicles experience

Yesterday I finished it. Until these days I've never finished Chronicles from scratch until the end (as well as AOD). So this walktrhough was the first for me.

And to be honest this game very dissapointed me. It doesn't look like the full-fledged game at all, but more like a DLC for TR4, and not very good DLC, worse than DLCs that were released for other parts of the series.

The game is very short and quite boring. I liked only 3 sections of the game:

1. Rome - just because it was very "classical" and caused nostalgia about Venice from TR2.

2. Mystical island levels were creepy and interesting - quite original conception for TR.

3. And the latest level - Red alert! It was quite challanging. But, OMG, how many stupid bugs were there... Even critical, preventing from finishing the level.

Maybe an idea itself of Lara's friends' mourning and nostalgia was not so bad, but its realization is awful...

Yeah, the story behind Chronicles was pretty... lax. This is probably the most forgettable TR game from the series.

100% Disagree. TRC is one of my favourite TR games.

In my opinion, this game isn't bad at all, it just happens to be super lacklustre compared to the other TR games. The game that holds the title for the worst in the entire series is definitely AoD. Ew.

I love VCI.

Quite unusual opinion about Chronicles. Would be interesting to see it more detailed with some arguments, what features makes this TR your favorite in the series.

Soon I will find out. Going to start AOD today.

VCI levels all the way.

Makes TRC the best for me in the series; buggy yes, but most challenging than many other levels in the entire series and also for other games as well

I think a good chunk of TRF thinks Chronicles should've been some type of DLC for TR4.

Chronicles is a pretty good game, but the story that it has is definitely the most lacking part of the game. Rome and Russia will forever be the best parts of the game for me. Good luck with AOD.

For a short game it does have a lot of variety than any other TR game. VCI offered a completely new tone and gameplay style to the series (and challenge, mind you). Ireland is one of a kind level in terms of atmosphere and expanding more about young Lara better than TR4 did in the tutorial level. The submarine stage had too much vent crawling but infiltrating a submarine base then deep sea diving (although short and limited) and escaping a flooding submarine was quite spectacular for a Tomb Raider game.

I love it!

Yeah... I would highly suggest that you download some mods for AOD. They will stop you rage quitting a lot!
