What do you make of this? Sounds (almost) like when Square Enix charged $50 for the Wii U version (and that version only mind you) for no good reason.

What makes it definitive? I just got the "standard" version on Amazon for 4.99 last week

#3 Posted by Snugenz (11892 posts) -

It's funny considering the actual definitive version can be had for (probably) under 10 euro atm.

#4 Posted by blackace (20890 posts) -

It sucks. I already have the original game and won't pay $60 for this. If anything, I'll wait for the price to come down under $25 and then grab it on EBay. No one should pay $60 for this game unless they don't have Tomb Raider. Even then, they should wait for a sale or price cut. I got the original Tomb Raider (sealed) for like $32.

Stupid as hell.

Not like I'm gonna buy it, but it's still overpriced.

#7 Posted by farrell2k (6370 posts) -

Tomb Raider is a $10 game.

#8 Posted by Slashkice (13240 posts) -

I give it a month before it's available for $20.

#9 Edited by Stevo_the_gamer (42980 posts) -

No thanks.

what is the difference between this and the one we already have?

I didn't play Tomb Raider yet and was looking forward to a nice discount for my wait... guess not :(

It looks nicer and has a little content for a mode you'll never play.

#14 Edited by SolidTy (43831 posts) -

While the pricing is stupid, it's not surprising at all. It's a quick cash grab.

I also wasn't interested in this version anyways as I've seen new copies for this game across PC-PS360 for less than $10.

Of course, if one did want this title cheap, all they would have to do is wait a year...which I assume they are used too if they haven't played Tomb Raider yet and wanted to play it.

#15 Edited by _Matt_ (8924 posts) -

That's a bit cheeky since it is essentially the same game they released an entire year earlier.

#16 Posted by bbkkristian (14957 posts) -

Yeah major screw that. But I wonder if it's gonna sell well because there is so little to play on next gen titles. I have a funny feeling that will happen.

I actually have it on PC... haha. I was just looking forward to playing an upres'd console version. Weird I know...

I see. Well in that case, I'll ignore this and move on. :P I already have it for pc, but was wondering if I should bite on the console version, since I'm a fan of the games and would be willing to play through it again.

#19 Edited by GhettoBlastin92 (1147 posts) -

While I want to get it, 60 bucks is ridiculous. Especially since you can get the ps3/360/pc versions for like 5-10 bucks now...

They ruined Lara's face. No thanks.

That's a bit much now, greedy fuckers

LOL @Crystal Dynamics trying so hard to re-establish Lara Crofts relevance. We can beat the next gen Uncharted to the market now can we, sure lets release a game we already released again on next gen cause people liked our slightly upgraded uncharted clone. We wanna make Lara face of games again, give her hair shampoo TressFX and a cold killer habbit, that should do it. They are really confused in that studio, thats for sure

#28 Edited by K1ngd0m4g3rul3z (178 posts) -

It's a s*** game anyway.

Eh, she looks worse in some shots, but nicer in others. This is one of the better ones I think:

#30 Edited by PrincessGomez92 (3616 posts) -

Even worse than I remember. :no:

#31 Posted by stereointegrity (10731 posts) -

not paying 60 bucks for something that was 3 dollars on a steam sale last week

#32 Posted by -RPGamer- (34283 posts) -

Like the new face. I'll purchase this when it dips to 30-40 on Amazon.

#33 Posted by silversix_ (14801 posts) -

Ripoff. Mediocre moaning simulator for $60....... Worst deal of 2014.

Likely the "GOTY Edition" for a game that didn't win any GOTY awards.

To be fair, it was against intense competition this year.

#36 Posted by Ghost120x (3917 posts) -

LOL. Got the game on ps3 last month for $12, and to think I was going to get it again because the game was amazing.

For 39.99? maybe. For 19.99? yes. For 59.99? Hell no!

Well , the PS3 version looks horrible though

Had it come out other years with less competition, it wouldn't have won many then either. Other than the graphics, it was a severe downgrade from past Tomb Raider games.

And from past Uncharted games.

It's not that bad for what I paid for it. The game looked okay to me, it could use some AA though.

It probably would have been one of the best games in 2012, for example. Not actual GOTY but people would know it more.

#43 Posted by Gue1 (10214 posts) -

the definitive rip-off. I don't think any amount of hair physics, resolution or AA would be worth the price tag.

When it came out people were quite feverishly talking about it. The lack of people talking about it now is a testament to their disappointment. As far as I'm concerned, it wasn't even remotely GOTY material, I couldn't barely get through an hour of the game. And I beat Uncharted 2 and enjoyed it.

#45 Posted by NFJSupreme (5379 posts) -

lol straight money grab. Definitive version is on PC for like 10 bucks on holiday sales right now.

@foxhound_fox: so to add some more positive attitude. TR was my GOTY, until ACIV.

#49 Edited by -RPGamer- (34283 posts) -

@Cranler: what is wrong with right eye? She's not facing the camera straight on so if your issue is how it doesn't look like the left than you need a better understanding of perspective.

#50 Edited by Muffin2020 (527 posts) -

I did enjoy the PS3 version at lot. But for the equivalent for $60.00 I think I'll just rent it.

That said it's good that the £35.00 vita version of Angry Birds has some competition as the worst price game in the world.
