Yes please. The Shadow complaining is beyond tiresome.

On the flip side, I have been replaying SotTR on Deadly Obsession with all DLCs and such and having a blast, even more than my first play through. I guess I can separate the great game from the crappy decisions that most definitely came from the publisher and not from the development team.

What I am trying to say is "welp, it sucks to be you then"

It doesn't. It's still a **** rushed lazily developed game, especially compared to what else is out there. Their stupid decisions and lack of transparency and being very very out of touch with the fans just make things worse and don't help. I thoroughly enjoy tr2013. And rise too despite the exclusivity. It had flaws but it is nowhere near shadow's level of mediocre. This game just killed reboot's potential for me. I'm only hyped for TR4 because they have literally no excuses this time to not give people what they want and an interesting Lara. And they are pretty much forced to revamp everything and add new animations and gameplay

Rushed yes. Lazily developed and mediocre? No.

I agree with this 100%. They were great games, and Shadow comes nowhere close. I canít see any similarity between Shadow and the Classics. The Classics were fun {even TRII, which I hate to death}, but not Shadow...

Pink gas arrow, that confuses the enemy in RoTR.
White gas arrow, that confuses enemy in SoTR.

Grenadier skill acquired automatically in 2013.
Grenadier skill can be only acquired, if you've bought the grenade launcher.
Grenadier skill can be acquired only via dlc. (otherwise just gas grenade, that nobody uses, since the bow with its gas arrow does the same and more.)

All of the SoTR dlc skills were available in one form or another by default in the previous two games. And this is just one example of many.

That is in no way, shape or form innovative, new or creative. It's lazy.

But... have it your way.

as much as i have my views on reboot lara, videos such as this:

always get me.
I think it activates my creative writing skills & passion and hooks me in; knowing i can see/hear the whole story. especially since its part of a trilogy, which i myself have also written.

But,

seeing the entire reboot timeline all together like that. Can I safely say, for Lara's new adventure, she must return to her roots. I dont just mean dual pistols and shorts yada yada (but also not forbidding it), but perona and characteristic as well. I mean, she's earned it no? The reboot origin story, she's earned it, yes?
