[QUOTE=angelika;6990604]Can someone please explain to me what is [B]Tomb Raider (Nordic Limited Ed.)[/B] ?

I mean what is the difference between that and the common edition?[/QUOTE]

No difference except it includes the downloadable tomb, Shantytown MP map, faster climbing and the rest I don't remember. Nothing special though.

I never realized this before because I played with a gamepad, but the game is almost completely unplayable with keyboard and mouse, and the only reason are the ****ing QTEs. Okay, left and right are A and D, I was sort of able to figure that out on my own. But a button prompt with an exclamation mark? Why not just say that I'm supposed to press "F" here? I had to look through the button options to figure that one out, and that's just bad game design.

Or better yet, the game should have a setting "no QTEs, also skip all cutscenes". That would make it instantly much better.

Edit to add some other notes:
- Why on earth is Sam's pack there where Lara finds it? There's no indication how Sam or anyone else could have gotten there. Of course, In a world where they all went everywhere to distribute their journal pages, anything's possible, but still.
- At the sheltered ridge, I had to press skip four times to get rid of all the cutscenes. What's the use case? Does anyone honestly think "yeah, I'm not gonna watch that first and last part, but the middle is gold" or something?

[/QUOTE]I know what you mean, but I never had this problem, as both of the "signs" are introduced with a tutorial text earlier in the game.

Really? I must have missed that.


Anyway, another thing I realized again: Despite all the complaints I have about the story and the upgrading and whatever, at its core, there is a really fun game here. Killing all the deer and rabbits is fun. Exploring a sprawling jungle environment is fun. The basic jumping and platforming is fun. I just wish the game was more about that and less about the other stuff.

Playing through the Definitive Edition again. The amount of times Lara gets into a scene like sliding down the slope to get away from a crashing plane is quite comical. When I played that just now I actually imagined her [URL="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAglQQP3ZEM"]thinking this[/URL]. Still a good game though. :D

The only criticism I have is in relation to the exclamation point in the title. It's extremely unnecessary. :o

[B]Also, if this wasn't posted before, [url=http://images.darkhorse.com/darkhorse/downloads/desktops/tombraider1/mag.jpg]here's[/url] a big version of the cover![/B]

Sorry, but it actually does, and if it doesn't, then you have turned off the setting for it to.

It actually does what? Say press 'F' or whatever ect. As, it doesn't in the PC version and hasn't through the numerous times I've played it. (If that's what you mean)
