Curious... Have you skipped the cutscene or played a demo? Because it is humanly impossible.
Or have you watched a video only cutscene on Youtube... I took more than two weeks. And I already knew the main game. Two weeks to complete it, not counting the DLCs

I wouldn't say it's "****ing good", but I also think it's a very well done section. It looks freaking beautiful too

The best part of Rise is Syria hands down. It's literally how I imagined TR12 in the reboot universe, that beautiful for Egypt themed, or a continue Syria discoveries. And the same tank with shorts.

Syria is the most beautiful section we've ever had in TR. Makes me really want TR12 to be set in Egypt with CD working on the graphics. Imagine the whole game looking like that!

"sounds like a general play time"?
who said that?

of course a blind playthrough takes longer, duh.

the discussion started because one user said he wanted to replay it without side stuff, and I posted a piece of info, that's all.

what you make of what other people say is a you problem.
and why do you even care? it's not like we're insulting you by saying you can beat the game in 3-5 hours

btw, that 5h17min I got, I got it by playing legit, never skipping a cutscene, wasting minutes in random rumbling at the campifire, sometimes dying on purpose just to prove a point, doing stupid stuff

,saving poison arrows because of how OP they are and killing everything in those parts where I had to (I mean ehi I didn't make this game so obsessed with stealth, stupid AI and magical bushes).


but ehi I guess that's what happens when games are designed around the concept of experience rather than skill...


EDIT: and yes, with this kind of run not only tha game plays 200% better, but makes much more sense narrative-wise.
There's an emergency Lara, ****ing RUN

oh yeah if you skip the cutscenes and only go for the main story path both tr2013 and rise don't last more than 2.30-3h

the same would go for shadow if it wasn't for its unskippable cutscenes bs

I would say that's a bad thing, but then it's probably for the better as I can't with more than two hours at a time of Lara's voice.

Any speedruns anywhere employing glitches, btw?

In Underworld, you (not me) used to be able to shave 1/3rd off the game, hitting the cutscene trigger for ...ahm, South America ... by dive-jumping off the burning balcony in just the right way...

Anybody managed to leave the map in Rise?

not sure what you mean but no i'm talking about glitchless runs

plenty of glitch-friendly speedruns have been done for the reboot games and most of them managed to bring them under the 1h mark lol
