I don't think you really understand it then, actually. The problem isn't that there are microtransactions, the problem is that these games often tend to be designed around them to the point where they aren't fun to play unless you put down some cash (and even then they might not actually be fun - the goal is more to turn you into a compulsive player/spender than to keep you playing because it's such a quality experience). And not just a one-time fee. They'll try to get you hooked on the game, making you pay over and over again.

Yes, there are examples of free-to-play games that get microtransactions right, that aren't overly predatory or exploitative and that are actually fun to play without having to spend any money but most free-to-play mobile games don't fall into that category. Most free-to-play mobile games are terrible grind-fests solely designed around getting players addicted to them and then making them pay up to satisfy their addiction. That's not some optional part off to the side that you can ignore if you're so fortunate to not be susceptible to this type of exploitation. It's embedded in the core design of the game. (Yes, yes, I said core design just there xD.)

Games like Hogwarts Mystery, The Simpsons: Tapped Out, Dungeon Keeper: Mobile are good examples of these types of games being made with high-profile IPs.

Have we seen gameplay footage yet? Why is everyone saying it's trash based off a teaser? I'm confused.

I hope they give this game Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia treatment if it has microtransactions, I really want this game to be F2P friendly and not a greedy game like FFBE or that Kingdom Hearts mobile game.

Now looking more of it, I still really like the general apparence of Lara but her face doesn't really look that much like her. :0

Because it's a free-to-play mobile game. That doesn't guarantee that it's going to be bad and we should keep a somewhat open mind but most free-to-play mobile games are utter rubbish so a healthy dose of scepticism is appropriate imo.

Oh I can absolutely relate to this! I very much doubt my phone will be able to play this.

Thanks. Any chance we can also get that wallpaper used on the video thumbnail?

it's a mobile game with Classic Lara, not the best way to make her comeback tbh since people wanted remakes more than a mobile F2P game. However, I'll take it. :D
