So after completing The Last of Us, I started on Tomb Raider by recommendation from people on these boards. I must say.. I'm not really seeing all the hype to be honest. There seems to be something lacking, like a final touch of polish. The camera seems to be very jerky and movement on screen is not very fluid, I've never suffered from motion sickness but this game definitely looks pretty bad in that regard.
Admittedly, I'm only four hours in but I've already become somewhat bored with it. The character models, particularly Lara's face are horrendous. The other characters are terribly cliche and the voice acting is sub par. It's not all bad though, the gameplay itself is solid and the environments look nice, but it doesn't seem to have that special something. I do like the puzzles, they're a lot better than anything in Uncharted, but the gunplay is pretty bad to be honest. I was looking forward to the bow, but after TLOU, the bow in TR just seems poorly executed. The wolves sometimes stop in mid air whilst they charge, again removing the fluidity of the game. There are other glitches like this, which again indicate the need for more polishing.
I definitely feel this game could have done with a few more months of refining. I will continue playing, but at this point it seems like a solid 7/10 game to me. I guess that after playing the masterpiece that was TLOU, it's a little difficult to get impressed with games that are simply good. I mean no disrespect to the developers, but the voice acting and characterisation that Naughty Dog achieved really makes this game look dated in my opinion.
