Tell me why I should get this rather than Far Cry 3 which has a very similar set up but sounds a lot more original in most respects?

So because the early reviews praised the game and the "early adopters" love the game you feel its not a good game??? You'd have pre-ordered if everyone bashed it left, right and centre as the worst game of this generation and a utter flop for the franchise?

Just found my first secret Tomb! Very much enjoyed that and got a great reward at the end of it.

The secret tombs are nice to have, but I cut my teeth on Assassin's Creed II and played it to 100% completion, so after taking on the wickedly devious challenges that were that game's crypts, I felt like the ones in Tomb Raider are a little on the simple side.

For anyone who wants to know, when installing TR on the 360, it takes up 6.6GB on the hard drive.

Phlip 05-03-13 16:22

How come it doesn't install on PS3? :(

Why would you want that? I'm glad that TR doesn't need to be installed, it's just a waste of space IMO.

iSean 05-03-13 16:25

Hey guys. I've just got the camp fire after the irish guy died and the sniper guy saved me in the Shanty town cargo area. I'm about to head up to the sun temple to save Sam. How far, roughly, through the campaign am I?

It improves loading times and performance.

OMG, Crystal are such perverts! In Legend, when fighting Rutland he says "You know Lara, if you weren't so unfriendly you, me and Amanda would make a great threesome." :yik: :vlol: !!!

Sorry for posting this here but it wasn't worth it's own thread so yeah :p ...

__________

I wanted to ask something, apparently, the collectibles you can find in the game are sepearted in categories, like the Wartime category, or the Diaries of a Madman category. I also noticed that, when looking the map you could focus on finding either relics or those documents or just focusing on the game, can somebody explain how this works? Ok, thanks :) !

.:Tirivol:. 05-03-13 16:28

I got today my PS3 copy, but why there's no invert x axis option? It appears only the y one.

Also is it normal that the framerate drops too much in some open space?

Linoshi Croft 05-03-13 16:29

Does anyone know how to do the arrow finisher? Lara always seems to do the axe one even though I unlocked the one whereshe stabs them through the neck :o Is there a way to define it?

NYCL@R@ 05-03-13 16:34

I'm about to start playing, I'm scared yall!

I *think* that finisher only happens once you have the second skill point upgrade on the melee counter skill. You have to wait until a melee enemy, one with a shield/ machete and when they swing, you dodge with circle/B and then the little circle quick time event prompt will come up getting you to press triangle/Y and this will do the finisher where she sticks an arrow through their necks.

Also, I've just got the camp fire after the

MangelinaJolie 05-03-13 17:01

I previewed the Shanty Town map a bit. It's apparently Free For All only. How disappointing.

Should be about halfway through the campaign.

She always seems to do the axe, or the arrow through their ankles! :/

Those finishers only work when the enemy is stunned (not via dodge) and the bow has to be equiped!

The second upgrade is for armoured guys so maybe it only works on them? I've definitely seen it a few times so far though, but an arrow to the knee does seem to be more common.

Dark_Messiah 05-03-13 17:17

To everyone who has already finished the game..

The E3 Demo from 2012, the one with the parachute.. when exactly does that happen in the game because I just arrived there.

Jami393 05-03-13 17:24

Question on the 360 TR controller. On part of the packaging it say "Choose your style: D-pad tranforms from a plus to a disc". What does that mean exactly?

Peep Show 05-03-13 17:41

10 of my PSN friends are currently playing TR, so glad to see. :jmp:

why no one is answering me? :(

Cochrane 05-03-13 17:48

How come the solution to every single puzzle (so far) is arson? Okay, they want to be more realistic than ancient keys and mechanisms, I get it (actually I don't. They have many environments where still working mechanisms would be reasonable to expect). And I'll admit that they have found quite a few interesting ways to solve problems through setting things on fire. Still, it seems just a bit much. The final straw for me was when Lara was tasked with making a visible signal and decided on a fire, saying "yeah, I can do that". Oh yes, you canů

There'll be other stuff later too, like for example puzzles with wind <-- white text a minor spoiler

EscondeR 05-03-13 17:57

^ ^ Fire is the new "EPIC"... followed shortly by "survivor instinct" :rolleyes:

I'll tell you why, because you can bring the friggin' fire with yourself... not looking for keys, levers, mechanisms, etc... Those are not that new-ts want. Easy "exploration", he-he :p

Why would anyone? Why would anyone need to invert X axis?

Danni 05-03-13 18:07

The new Lara Croft and TOMB RAIDER just made the news on BBC THREE here in the UK, litterally just now :D word is getting around fast already. ;)

On a more sad note, I don't have the money right now to enjoy the new game and instead have been spoiling myself by watching hour long walkthroughs of the game for most of the day. I know i'm only spoiling it for myself but I just can't help it! :vlol: So jelous of those of you who got the game today. :p It looks bloody fantastic, and I love Lara's new personality! Oh so very British, she is. :)
