They failed to modernize the control schemes for the games and kept them clunky and slow.

Their biggest cardinal sin as a developer was developing their games in a vacuum without looking at major trends. They had no excuse to STILL be using tank controls by Tomb Raider 3 let alone 4 5 and 6. They had like zero foresight. Crystal at least had the sense to rip off the Prince of Persia’s control scheme instead of trying to fumble one together by themselves.

They also focused too much on pretty animations instead of functional ones.

This.

Also her outfits were pretty hilarious. Double denim...? Really? It felt like I was playing as Justin Timberlake while running away from French police and it slightly disturbed me.



Furthermore, they tried to make the story darker and serious. As much as I love that and think it could work great with Lara's trademark sass coupled with it, I just feel like classic TR is light hearted and funny. The first three games were perfect for that, you really feel like she's doing it for sport. It is silly and self-destructive, and she was just some sociopath, I loved it! Lol

Whew this thread is a massive trigger for me. Gonna avoid it in order to keep my membership in good standing.

I'll just say they made the wrong choice of having the pros working on Chronicles while having the newbies working on AOD. It should have been the other way around. Then AOD may not have had to be scraped the first time.

Also the Cairo section and the Matabas section in TR4. Worst levels from Core Design. Also Anker Wat was bad too because it did not teach the player how to play the new game with the new mechanics.

Ok I'm going now

People can still like a thing and be critical of it. This shouldn’t be triggering to anyone <3

Hmm just saw these but I think Cores only involvement was when they beta outfit showed no cleavage but the final outfit did show cleavage

everything else was from a different studio (cutscenes, ads etc) apparently

True, but knowing me I'll say or react to something truely outlandish.

I think it's cool for other people to have a chance to say what they want to say without potential drama, from me anyway.
