Well, I have just finished playing this and it was a good action game, although I cannot think of it as a Tomb Raider game...

The puzzles aren't there (don't you dare saying any tomb at all had a "puzzle" challenging enough to past after the category of task), the atmosphere isn't there, feeling great after finnaly getting unstuck isn't there... I really liked the classics...

It is a good action game, and the fact that I played it with an Xbox controller on pc made it harder than I am usually used to playing keyboard and mouse.

Hope RotTR is better, going to give that one a try, shadow will be after.

Yup, thats the general consensus. A good game but not a good Tomb Raider game.

You'll like Rise and Shadow a lot more. They take all the basic gameplay elements from this game but add in a lot more classic elements. Shadow moreso than Rise but Rise also has a lot of classic elements. The jump in quality is very noticeable.

It depends. The gameplay got relatively better for Rise and especially Shadow but I can't with the stories and Lara's total lack of further development.

I really feel like 2013 ended on a good note where story is concerned, and even gameplay tbh. The last 1/4 was far more bearable than the middle with the ****ing non-stop shooting in Shanty Town. I played it again recently and if all of the game had been more like that last 1/4 I'd probably find it so much more redeemable.

They always seem to drop the ball somewhere though, across the whole trilogy, and it's such a shame because the elements are there. They just don't bring it together cohesively.

That's what happens when you have a dozen people behind the steering wheel.

I know since 2013 was asked a few times, but I'm going to ask anyway.

Why Lara gave a pistol to Sam, after escaping the palace?

Sam had one already, we can even see her using it, whilst she getting cornered in the court of the palace.
That was just...stupid.Like my question...

Its probably another cutscene error if that happens, like the magic grenade launche/guys who knock Lara, cant really remember the palace section myself.

That's just my opinion, but I think we have to search the root of this outside of the game; as you said within the game it doesn't make sense. So, I guess the answer sounds something like this: "so Lara can’t have it".
Someone/s really seems to be allergic to dual pistols when it comes to the reboot era.

I wish they would've gone through with it properly… (the right side)

I forgot how much shorter TR was compared to Rise and Shadow, I just bought DE a few days ago on the ps store for 7 bucks and been playing hard, already at the shanty town. Does anyone else miss the dirt throw skill?
