Absolutely loving the DE version on our new XB1 it looks exquisite, the new close-quarters death scenes are, well, to die for, and it plays as slick as it ever did. And Lara even looks the part in her Aviator gear. I've upped the stakes slightly from my usual easy playthroughs to normal...fine until I hit Shantytown, that last wave of Solari did me many many times before making it through. Those Oni battles on the distant horizon already lurk darkly in the corners of my mind.

Still working its magic, I doff my cap to the producers of this masterpiece

I hate Shantytown, I always seem to die there, but only in the 1st wave when I get to the gate and onwards, I flow through very easily

I also hate Shantytown. That segment is now next and I haven't still gotten back to the game because I dislike Shantytown so much.

The first wave of enemies once you get fire arrows is trully horrible. The Solarii just keep coming I remember on my first playthrough (on hard) I spent there at least half an hour. But the worst segment is when she gets to Sam and are separated in the Solarii Fortress. Its pure hell.

The Most worst area is Chasm Ziggurat end fight when you are battling the Storm Guard Boss, you just have a lot of Soliarii shooting you which makes it even more annoying -_-

Ah I love Shantytown, because that first bit is so tough. It really hones my accuracy levels up, out of necessity, and always gives me a good pasting, but I love the way the puzzle element is woven into the situational requirements of each combat-fest. Love the challenge, even when it's infuriating me.

And by 'last wave' I meant the last set of guys that spring up in the first main assault, not the mob by the gate or beyond. That wave alone must've been responsible for about 6 dead Lara's, prolly more.

At least I kept the audience entertained XD

Is "catabombs" an ortographic mistake, or is it a reference from all the explosions that there are in the game?
