Default Deadly obsession difficulty

Guys be warned - deadly obsession difficulty is unforgiving and it can't be changed if you've started a game. There are no checkpoints and camps are very scarce. The tombs are extremely deadly and you'll have to complete the same segment several times in some cases - replay 20-30 minutes at least. Combat is also difficult as Lara dies from several bullets especially from armored enemies - the croft edition weapons help a lot though as they are powerful.

Maybe consider lesser difficulty for first playthrough to experience the story..

I literally played the Dagger Tomb 5 times until I changed to Hard. The reason is either dumb deaths or the game decides to crash when I was close to leave the city

Yes indeed quite often there are failed jumps due to game mechanics or bugs.

Tell me about it. I died in the serpent trial climbing cause it is too dark. As well the escape, I didn't know who was enemy or friend lol. There's also this weird bug that occurs in my game (ps4) that sometimes the camera goes crazy and tilt a full 180 degrees on me. It happened in a jump of death section and just imagine what happened.

I think EM should add checkpoints with v1.04 at least when you complete some of the difficult tombs or challenges

honestly i'm enjoying the challenge because this way the idea of dying is truly terrifying and every single enemy and trap feel more dangerous

BUT

i agree a few more crucial checkpoints that still save your progress would help

I so far haven't got past the first level on Deadly Obsession, I was trying to get a 100% but the game keeps freezing and there is input lag. I've been literally shimmying to the end of the level and the last cutscene, but Lara has lost her grip because my game froze and I didn't press grab quick enough. Quite annoying really but as a masochist I love it

i dont want a change to deadly obsession. use an easier difficulty if you cant get through, no one is forcing you. but i dont want the hardest difficulty to be nerfed because some people cant deal with it. the game is already giving a few checkpoints in the intro without having to reach a camp.

Yeah, you're all crazy lol

I don't see how deadly obsession would even be fun on the first play through. But hey everyone is different.

Playing on Hard is enough in my opinion. It was a nice experience, without being overly easy.
