I always thought the manor should have been a reward for finding all the secrets and could have been a level showing Lara prepare for going to Egypt. Like solving puzzles in the manor to get the compass, binoculars, etc.

I remember reading something about the idea of not including Lara's Home in TR4 was for the feeling of isolation? Similar to TR5.

I think the idea was that you're stuck in the Egyptian setting for the whole game, and that trapped feeling would be lost if you could jump in/out of the Manor. Same for TR5 to keep the suspension that Lara had died, rather than skipping to present day in the Manor.

Does anyone else think this game is too long and samey? Every single time I try to replay I'm having a ton of fun until about halfway through and at that point it becomes a chore to get through.

It's literally the only Core game that does this for me. I can replay 1,2,3 and even Chronicles without getting bored multiple times/year.

Most of the reasons in that thread are baseless and biased.

Nice Try but I can't hate the game which actually give us tombs to raid in ; )
I think you've misunderstood Joey's intentions. He was responding to tombkrc whose post was on the negative side in an appreciation thread, so Joey was giving the link to tombkrc.

Anyhoo, I really enjoy TR4, it's my favourite of the Core era, even though it has a few issues. What's not to like? Egypt, pyramids, tombs, an interesting story involving an apocalypse, the relationship between Lara and Werner, among other things.

Not sure if it was really negative. I did say that I really, really enjoy the first half of the game

I feel Tomb Raider 4 gets underlooked most of the time. It took everything that was great that came before, and put it all together in what I've always considered the best game in the franchise. Whenever there's talks of remaking the classics, I always feel a bit like this one wouldn't make the cut and the focus would be more on the first 3 games.

Exactly! It's sad that TOmb Raider 4 doesn't get the love and respect that it deserves. You're right about only first 3 games getting remaster in future. I would be most saddest person if TR4 doesn't get remaster and only first 3 gets them. I don't care about TR5 because it was just for money, developers didn't put their soul In TR5 but in TR4 coredesign putted their everything to make it best. Sadly people don't see the beauty of this game. 😔
