Totally! It's the rewriting of Lara's character I'm not fond of. The origin story part is fine, and as you said--it was a unique perspective worth considering given the fact the LAU trilogy never explicitly addressed how Lara came to acquire all her skills. They did try to establish the connection between her adventuring and the family drama, and we were lead to believe she took up tomb raidering as a full time job because she was always hoping for some sort of closure in that regard. However, besides the Paraiso flashback, we didn't get much backstory on Lara's development as a tomb raider. I'm really curious where the story picks up in the next game.

Ascension looked perfect and I will forever be gutted it was taken away from us. I hope they reuse the ideas in the future.

I didn't really like the idea of ascension back then. It felt like it was inspired by the Japanese horror titles waay too heavily. The reboot that we got was closer to the Tomb Raider's spirit.

I remember tlronline made a thread about "how would you feel about a whole game about a tomb raider chronicles level?" I think that's initially what CD were intending, with the game expanding on the ireland level's and doubling down on the different creatures she saw. I think it would've been good as one section of the reboot, like they did with Ireland, but not a whole game like uncharted usually does. I would want to go to another location after one level of that.

I think it was a missed oppurtunity as a non-tomb raider game

CD should've made Ascension into a separate AAA survival horror game instead of doing Avengers. Especially in this new survival game craze, Ascension would've been a great transition into something fresh for the studio to work on. It had a lot more promise.

Looked like it had proper platforming physics so already a million times more TR than the reboot.

For all the people thinking Ascension would work better as a different AAA video game separate from Tomb Raider, would you guys prefer a new protagonist or do you think a spin-off akin to the "Lara Croft and..." series could work as well?

Personally, I would prefer it to have been a completely separate IP, with a new protagonist.
