We did it kids! Thank you all involved in this community for acting like clowns and letting the clownery get to you.

For archival & celebratory purposes, I'm posting my Shadow of the Clown Raider avatar on this historical 1000th page.

He has so far fixed all the flaws that came with the LAU trilogy and the Reboot expanded.
That's the difference. Classic Tomb Raider doesn't mean 1:1 copy of the PS1 games.
Great summary!

I agree, but for me at least it's still fun.

I wouldn't be happy with LAU Lara was getting beaten down and complaining as much as she does in the Reboot. A simple switch of Lara's wouldn't fix that issue. But the voice acting on the other hand would at least be improved!

I think for me LAU Lara is just a lot more interesting and is truer to the character. I find Reboot Lara boring and plain. There's nothing that stands out for me.

Parts of Shadow's gameplay was a lot better yes. However with LAU, it was a lot easier to dive into and have fun. With the reboot there's so many sections that are slowed paced it's boring. Legend at least had the replayability.
