They need to bring back swimming. Although, I didn't miss it as much as I thought I would of, they need to bring it back. Thinking about it, there is so much that can do.

klona 15-05-13 15:01

Swimming would be nice, but I hope swimming doesn't make a come back without a new special mechanic for it. :)
It's time for swimming in Tomb Raider to get updated.

How will her fire arrows work? :pi:

When you press the camera button, she turns to the camera and coughs? I don't know why but I find it funny :')

Just yesterday I was curious to see what happens if you let the idle animation kick in :D. I thought the coughing and realistic blinking were nice touches.

Just bring back the AoD swimming. I like that one.

They can do so much with swimming though. Not only a water segment of the game. Lara has to swim past sensors that can track her, so stealth doesn't work ect.

I know, there is so much little details in this game that many people can miss. I love the butterflies, I don't know why.
CD should of given us a Gold Trophy for killing a butterfly with an Arrow.

I don't see why Lara has to be emotional when she never was before. Just because she's a woman doesn't mean she can't be hardened and mysterious.

motoleo 15-05-13 16:22

Oh my gosh, look at this! An Editor's choice score of 9.1 on IGN, and an overall score of "Amazing!". Tomb Raider has never seen this level of praise, ever before.

Did any of the older TRs win E3 awards?

E3 started in 1995, I doubt it had as many awards and stuff when the older games were released.

However, they didn't get that good of reviews back then on press sites. Mostly good, but nothing mind blowing. The original got an 8.5 on Gamespot, and the rest averaged around a 7.

IGN did say TRL was the best game in the series when it came out, and that's something I absolutely cannot take seriously. :vlol:

I'm not sure that's right.

On my game box for TR1 there are a variety of scores from various press reviewers which were prominant at the time. The scores are 5/5, 93%, 94%, 10/10, 9/10.

TR2 has only 1 score on the front (10/10) from a Playstation magazine. So maybe times were already changing... although I seem to remember TR games scoring extremely high until TR4, then the dip began in earnest.

Gamespot was founded in May 1996 and IGN in September 1996 - but there were not like they are now. They weren't that significant as reviewers of anything when TR was first released - we were all still reading magazine reviews!

I haven't seen the back of this game box in 9 years.

^ Gasp, and look, there they are!

Blackmoor 15-05-13 17:03

^I had to dig it out too! Mine are only on the front and they're different reviewers, you must be in a different country from me. :pi:

Fair point.

[Xmas] 15-05-13 17:07

I usually find TR reviews stupid anyway. I think I've never read or seen a good review to be honest. They are extremely biased most of the time and the people who make them don't even know that the main character is LARA and not LaUra.

_Ninja_ 15-05-13 17:08

To me Lara wasn't "emotional", she was genuine. Also no one is born hardened, it's an origin story, it's kind of the point that we see her before she had ever had to face life threatening adversity and to watch her grow tough. And she does, in fact she's tough from the start she just grows to believe in herself.

Not to mention by the end she's actually more like you want her to be. Just look at the way she acts at the beach. Hell just look at the final scene and the final conversation with the guy on the ship, there is your "unemotional" Lara.

I for one am glad to be rid of the "teflon" Lara. Nothing about that cliché archetype is interesting or inspiring. New Lara has real human strength and perseverance, not the fluffy kind.

Why does she say this? We have unlimited ammo in this game.

Rawkmann 15-05-13 17:31

I'd like to see Lara go back to this :D

Doesn't get much more hardcore than that, lol.

I think they put that line in the game for the lolz, honestly.

It was supposed to make you laugh exactly for the same reason you posted this, it's completely illogical since Lara can't run out of ammo.

Apart from the fact, that she was never truly like that :p

They designed her as a serial killer originally, but she's more of an anti-hero in the final version, not a cold-hearted human monster :vlol:

What I think is more interesting is the reason why you keep changing your posts. That was a YouTube video, a review of AoD and how sad it apparently was, before you changed it.

Because in the game, for us, we have unlimited bullets. But in the story and game world have run out of bullets. Did anyone else know Winston was in Anniversary? I've had this game since 2007 and in the manor i've only just realised he's around the house. Infact he follows you round the house!

Yes. You can see him in different places. I can recall seeing him on the balcony in the courtyard outside the gym :cool:

No one responded so I thought it was unpopular. Do you want me to add it back?

Oh, because the second she said that, I was like, "Ha ha! No I'm not!" And then I mowed her down with my Uzis!

...

In TR9, on the Endurance, I felt like Natla was about to pop out from behind the corner at any moment!

NO!

All dem other basic bitches can die, but Lara & Sam are flawless, therefore do not die in the place of an ugly geek or an ugly old woman :ohn: !

Reyes is too hardcore to die IMO. It would have been shocking! And racist... jk :p
If Sam was going to die then would have been too stupid because you are trying to save her ass through the whole game!
And It's like the game forces you to fail on saving her.

The only deaths that should be there is Grim's death and Roth's too.
Alex was a lovable character to kill him. :/

tomee 16-05-13 13:28

I think Reyes dying would've been very touching. She has a daughter and all she wanted is to see her again. You really would feel sorry for her.
On the other hand, everbody loved Alex.

She will eat your soul!

Lara_Fan1 16-05-13 13:32

Yeah I didn't really think about Sam. No, she stays.

Reyes should of been killed or sacrificed herself. The shock that she has a daughter and dies on the island.
To keep the cliche's up Reyes should of said 'You're as stubborn as my daughter, I only wanted to protect you' then BAM arrow to the eye.

People are probably not going to agree but I wanted Alex to survive and him and Lara to become a couple aha! I felt sad for him that all he wanted to do was impress her and she didn't really notice.

spyrostr 16-05-13 13:34

now that i think of it the death of Mathias wasnt that realistic... Lara shot at him so many bullets and what was the result instead of being dead? he missteped and fell of the edge screaming....

i think that Lara was revengeful at that moment and she liked it in a way otherwise there wasnt any reason to pick up the other gun and shoot him with both of them.... the best thing would have been if Mathias had been lying dead after the shooting with Lara standing above him(with the dual guns...the Lara we know and love) and then simply kick him off the edge... that would have been truly badass...

Did anyone hear about the Jonah's suicide?
