Sorry but I don't like escort missions. If they do it though, it would be a great chance for some witty and sassy dialogue with Lara!

I dont really want any escort missions. They just slow me down, and I feel like I need to baby someone before actually having any fun.

That said, if we had a choice on whether we make a friend or a foe by choosing whether or not to fight/kill them similar to the monks in TR2 or the troops in TR3, then Id be all for it. Just so long as one of them doesnt suddenly choose to tag along for the ride.

Never liked escort missions. Assassins Creed is the worst when it comes to it.

I don't want to protect someone as that can quickly become a pain, but I wouldn't mind Lara having a companion at some stage.

In fact, I'd quite like that.....

They could solve puzzles and fights together. And it could help improve the storyline.

I don't want it all the time, as I do enjoy Lara being on her own. But a bit of company in this third game wouldn't be bad.

It's a no from me.

Lara needs to be on her own, all of the time, doing what she does best.

I find that incredibly boring. I hope we get to see more of Jonah and other secondary characters. I'd love to see something like Uncharted where both characters interact with each other. We should have sections like that, and other sections where she's by herself.

To me there are too many games where players are forced to have companions of some sort and the characters aren't isolated long enough.

Perhaps the player could be given a choice?

If they make the environments lively then there maybe no need to worry about boredom with an isolated character.

I don't want to see Lara killing herself over other characters, I want to see some selfishness in her for a change.

Apparently she's already a bit selfish in the beginning of Shadow, even forcing Jonah to put her back in her place

I just thought of this, but it was more in line with us controlling another character while they escort an injured Lara to safety. That I might be okay with, if the context/duration wasn't terrible or overdone.
