What‘s the difference between me saying you act like a 5 year old and you saying that I‘m behaving like a Junior Member? Again, very hypocritical of you.

That’s it. I’m going to open a petition to bring back Legends posts to what they used to be!
Yeah, I noticed this too. Signed

That’s just bad game design. So y’all literally want to be stuck in a game for eternity. Honestly not me as a Classic fan...
I'd argue only the ladder jump is bad design generally.

I admit there is a fine line between good/bad mazes but I don't think TR2 had many bad maze levels, really just the Maria Doria levels (and I think it says alot I couldn't even tell you which one was more maze-like.) outside of Maria Doria there's nothing liky Aldywch from TR3 for instance.

IMO a good maze-like level has landmarks.

For instance, if you had a hedgemaze level but every bit was just more hedge and maze, it'd be bad, if certain bits of the maze had landmarks of some kind , the player can start to map out where they are relataive to land marks.

I'd argue tough booby traps aren't bad design, well in TR2 anyway, 3 certainly does it since some of them are practically impossible to survive without dying first.

The second level isn't bad design as you literally just have to open a single shortcut and you can make it, its not like Lara has to navigate an entire maze with the boat, its a short sprint that you open a shortcut for so you can make it.

Yeah I’ll never disagree that the levels in the classic games are definitely more involving and harder to figure out.

I like getting lost in a level and that’s never happened in the reboot games. But, I don’t consider it to be a puzzle though. That’s just me.

It's not gone. I'm just testing this for night mode, lol. I like the blue font much more as well, but it doesn't work so well with night mode, so I'm just playing around with some colors.

But thanks I guess!

There you go. Wish granted for now. It feels weird using a different color than this.

No I don’t consider those puzzles at all. That’s just collectibles placed in obscure locations.
Booby traps are like puzzles though. You have to perform the right movements to avoid getting hit by them. It's a puzzle where a wrong move can result to Lara's death.

Similar to the way that Bossfghts of Devil May Cry games are considered as puzzles.(You have to learn how to dodge boss moves while learning when to strike and what moves to use.)

Collectibles should be considered as puzzles since some of the secrets were placed in locations where you have to figure out how to reach without getting killed.

I didn't say you were behaving like a junior member, I put that there because I was showing that there was something I couldn't say. That's why there spam of letters and junior member in quotes. Once again you read me wrong and you insulted me without cause to do so.

It was weird. If you do it again, I’m reporting you :P

We’ll just agree to disagree then I guess. I don’t personally consider them puzzles, but I understand your reasoning behind your opinion. And again, I absolutely agree that the traps are more challenging. I just don’t agree that they’re puzzles. But again, just my opinion on it. And who even cares what I think? Haha

With that I have to disagree. It impresses me. I think it's less impressive than the original games sales, but still very impressive.
