[QUOTE=TippingWater;6680527]^I agree! That Machinima review is stupid![/QUOTE]

Good to hear that from you, especially since you dislike the game. Means that review is nothing to worry about :p

just_love_her 02-03-13 16:41

[QUOTE=James_Rutland;6680523]The guy who reviewed the game from Machinima needs shooting. Seriously. I've never seen such a massive troll for a reviewer ever. He literally tore the entire game apart and managed to find 1009412 unrelevant problems with the game, while stating one of them is that Lara kills fierce ingame and is softer in the cutscene where she is attacked by Vlad... I don't understand, does he want Lara to cry everytime she kills? And he mentions Uncharted does this too, but Drake can be forgiven because he's "charming" :rolleyes:

What a loser :vlol:[/QUOTE]

He's just pressed because Lara doesn't have extra large boobs but has a personality this time. Drake charming? Hah, I found Natla charming. Who can get angry at that little cute ancient God. She killed Lara's mother. Who cares about that bitch, Lara's such a drama queen.

Lol I hate Uncharted now :vlol:

I must be biased... but the only character i like from Uncharted is Chloe. Because she reminds me of Lara. :p And Elena, because shes not stupidly exaggerated and hollywoodised like the rest of the cast.

Can anyone who has the PS3 version confirm the controller button configuration? :o I'm really curious as to what it is and if it works well.

;) As I have said in the review thread this game is easily an 8 as a Tomb Raider game, and a lot higher as an action game, maybe around 8.5-9 :). To be fair I think it's the best Tomb Raider game made by CD :).

[QUOTE]“The single-player campaign here is the main attraction, and it is excellent. It doesn't try to rewrite the book on third-person action adventure games. But with its excellent controls, engaging heroine, thrilling combat, and fascinating setting, it doesn't need to - 8.5/10.”

[QUOTE=January_Snow*;6680526]I know stores in Serbia that have the game, the problem is that smart me decided to go to a different country while the game is being released. Unless some qatari member magicaly points me to a store that has the game I guess I'll have to wait to get back to Serbia to play it :([/QUOTE]

Ah, that's some bad situation. The closest place where I can get the game is Novi Sad since TR will take MONTHS to come to my town (and it's gonna be twice as expensive). I'll have to tell someone to buy it for me since my parents wouldn't go there just to get the game.

Erm, weren't you saying this isn't Tomb Raider at all and just a generic shooter a few days ago?

I never said that this is a bad game, it's just not a great Tomb Raider game. 8 to me is not a high score, but it really deserves at least an 8 as a Tomb Raider game.

My main discontent for this game came from it's cliché story and forced shooting mechanics, but it wouldn't be fair to hate it or to call it a bad game.

I guess I had a realization, if you don't go into it expecting something like the classics you won't be disappointed. This is something along the lines "Uncharted meets Tomb Raider" than "Tomb Raider meets Tomb Raider", and it sort of works.

Anyway, anyone who rates this game lower than 8 or 7 is truly biased.

Square to light the torch, square is like the new action button but its really fitting IMO. Circle to cancel shot/torch, triangle is mainly used in QTEs. Rest is same as TRL.

Speaking of which, I HATE the QTEs! Especially the final one, I knew EXACTLY which button was going to pop up and hit it the second it did, and I died like 10 times. I also died a lot during the rape cutscenes, I kept hitting the button as soon as it popped up but she still died!

Phlip 02-03-13 17:18

^Thanks. Also, I think you're meant to hit the buttons as the circular frame outlines the edges of the button icon, or something.[QUOTE=TippingWater;6680565]I never said that this is a bad game, it's just not a great Tomb Raider game. 8 to me is not a high score, but it really deserves at least an 8 as a Tomb Raider game.

8 to me is very generous, and if you don't like it then why would you say it's CD's best TR?

Because it is better by miles than the previous trilogy together. 8 is decent, not bad, but not exceptional either :).

_Ninja_ 02-03-13 18:14

Couldn't help myself and watched a few minutes of the ign stream. My god dat combat looks amazing.:eek:

And it isn't like [I]*insert shooter*[/I]. You don't know shooters if you think that. It has its own spin and flow.

LaraDuh 02-03-13 18:47

Anyone in the US see it in Wal-Mart yet?

klona 02-03-13 18:48

I started the game today, I like it so far.
It took me 4 hours to reach the first gas valve puzzle on the way to the Radio Tower. :vlol:

James_Croft 02-03-13 18:53

Been playing 6 hours with this game now and it is by far THE best Tomb Raider ever made!

The RPG system could've been a bit more elobarte and the puzzle tombs a bit more tricky/lengthy but the story is well told so far and Yamatai is just mindnumbigly beautiful.

Aiming is a bit tricky too but I love a good challenge.

I don't really get people complaining about a dischord between the "brutal" gameplay and our "wimpy" heroine.
Her first kill IS her breaking point. After that she doesn't even complain as much in the cutscenes anymore.

I think people are just complaining for the sheer sake of it.

Phlip 02-03-13 18:59

How is aiming tricky? :o Surely it's as smooth as Uncharted 1 and 2?

How did you get the game? I'm planning to get it on Retail instead.

Preordered it from aido.com and they sent it early. :)

Oh yes it is. But on Hard Enemies are quite tough and Lara usually goes down after 3 immediate shots. So aiming for the head is the key for survival. ;)

Look who's slaying the videogame industry:

If one were to be as unbiased as possible, would this game be

A.) A must buy?
B.) A buy at a lower price?
C.) A rental?
D.) Pass?

Oh right so the aiming is fine it's just the enemy health on Hard makes Hard hard. That is to be expected. :p

She tells Roth it was surprisingly easy. o-o
She was like: "oh I had to kill some men and it was easy". She said something like that while climbing the ladder in the burning village.

Id say itd be either a or b or c, depending on how you personally feel. I think its worth buying. Its certainly longer compared to LAU and theres a lot to do off the beaten path, bit I dobt think its worth a pass tbh :o

a lot of people seem to tune that part out. what a shame.
also did anyone notice they edited the cutscene with.her first kill?

I doubted it was a pass, but I wanted to gauge some opinions.

Personally, I see this as a rental. It's definitely not a must buy for me, and I have no clue when the price will drop.

To other members who remained skeptical or undecided, how is it?

Then perhaps rent it first and see if you like and then buy it when the price drops? :)

Did they edit it?! I didn't notice.

I shouldn't say but I really love using the axe as a weapon.
This whole part of the skill tree is actually superfun.

While the community was all negative at first you can find tons of positive posts there now.

OMG! I just stumbled across this :o! Bloody fantastic! The comics should have had this Lara on the cover! :o
