I don't really care for the art style but I guess that since it's a spinoff it's okay.

I'm curious to see more.

Square Enix's mobile games are relatively okay I think so I hope Reloaded is no exception.
their mobile games are confusing, sometimes they can come up with the best mobile games/F2P friendly games, other times their games are just money hungry and boring.

Yeah. I think they started the money hungry way but have become better as time went on. FFRK, Lara Croft GO, Opera Omnia and Relic Run I think are my personal favourites.

This game shows that 'classic' style Tomb Raider and Lara are still the most recognisable mascots for the franchise, and so they are what SE use for the mass, casual market of mobile gaming. It keeps the name 'Tomb Raider' in people's minds in a recognisable form for a minimal effort/investment on SE's part. I don't really get why they can't put that recognition of how important original style Tomb Raider is in popular culture into their main games.

Classic Lara is marketable and profitable but that doesn't affect Survivor Lara's marketability. Obviously Classic Lara works a lot better for the spinoff and side games and the nostalgia helps a lot to sell those games or at least that's what Square Enix seems to hope and the more dramatic and "non perfect" Survivor Lara helps to sell a character that is human and grounded and not perfect in every single thing she does because that's what people seem to expect from media these days. They want realness and emotion from characters in movies, games books even pop idols. People don't seem to care to see a character or person that is always looking and acting flawless and prefer to see characters and people that have flaws and weaknesses and still succeed in spite of them.

Classic Lara is much closer to that always perfect always looking her best no one can touch her archetype whereas Survivor Lara, while still retaining Classic Lara's Core elements is a much more grounded heroine.

Nice to see they're going with the classic theme, but not so keen on Lara's new look - kind of like a cartoon doll for kids. But then maybe their plan is to appeal to a younger generation for new games, keep the franchise going another while? If it's free, I might give it a whirl for nostalgia!

I did think this. Maybe their plan is to come out with this first to appeal to a younger audience, so when more things hopefully get announced soon and into next year, they'll be even more of an audience for it, if it's classic related.

As the title "Tomb Raider" has been pushed into the 18+, gritty, realism and adult side of gaming for many years now. Maybe this free mobile game is to help transition back to something not so age restricted.

Anyways, I'd give LCGO a 10/10. I see no mistakes in that game. I was listening to the ost in YT and it makes me so nostalgic even if I just played it this year.

Perhaps this is why the Lara croft fb and twitter pages announced they were merging with the main Tomb Raider account recently?

We should all be happy there's a new game no matter if it's console or mobile

This community is so toxic sometimes
