I am Tomb Raider addict since the beginning of the series. But this episode of Lara Croft is what Tomb Raider is all about-reintroduction of video games history!

 i like the new lara too - there are still people who complain "oh no, it's not tomb raider anymore" 

the same people would complain "oh the same thing again" if CD did otherwise ..

So, what you're saying is that this is the only good Tomb Raider game since the first one?

I would like to know how changing an iconic heroine from that super sexy figure instantly recognised. Which I would have inked. Into something so hideous, looking now like some sort of mutant. While changing her entire life story, that of her origin, taking what little truths from her history to fit this ridiculous plotline while ignoring for the most part her characters absolute facts. This now makes this the best Tomb Raider? No it makes this one of the worse game around, because the principles are wrong.

Her origin is no longer original she a clone of the Green Arrow, while the gameplay is total clone of Uncharted. This game is not Tomb Raider, and cannot be defended as. Ask yourself would you ink this new Lara, does she look sexy, is her story now original, is this game now original, are her weapons and jumps better? Her jumps here are nearly to the effect of the gorrilla she has now become lacking in any elegance or beauty, now with plenty of ziplines because this is how everyone travels aboot. This Lara is now some man hating, ugly american indian, content with hunting camping and killing men. Turning this game into another generic clone FPS/RPG.

Go on hail this as the second coming. Shiny Graphics and reasonable controls and the tacky mutliplay make this game good? How those stupid are so easily pleased.

What maded Tomb Raider great was because you felt like a Tomb Raider. You played ingame Temples, and Tombs discovering plenty of secret locations, making those hard to impossible jumps to access all of those relics and artifacts, solving some very awkward and hard puzzles to achieve your game goals. Combating all of those elements and enemies you would find within a tomb or temple. While playing as one of the hottest ever top 10 computer heoines of all time, so hot she was played by one of the hottest top 10 actresses of all time. Nothing of this paragraph can be said of this game.

Good grief man, i don't know where to start picking apart your hateful, racist post. You say "ugy American Indian", what?, Lara is NOT a Native American (what's wrong with that anyway?), get your basic facts straight. Also, her movements aren't like a Gorilla, what game are you playing?

I for one, couldn't find Lara all that sexy in her first outings, she looked like LEGO, here she's lovely. She has a perfect hourglass-shaped thin figure and beautiful facial features, where are your eyes man!? 

I do agree though, we DIDN'T need multiplayer, and the game could do with more tombs and less bloody shooting.

I know you're a troll but s***, you may be one of the dumbest I have seen on here and that is saying something considering this isn't even the "Off-Topic" forum.

For a start if you are so worried about the figure of a fictional female character you either need to get out more, or seek some sort of therapy, the design of the character is not their for you're titilation (go look it up).  You seem to be overlooking the obvious fact that this game is set before all but Tomb Raider IV.

I don't exactly know what you are wittering on about principles for, seems like she has some but lost them in this game, I am going to assume that you are talking about her openess in killing people, or as they are commonly known "Bad Guys".  Unless it escaped your memory this is an origin story, designed to give an insight into what made her the person she became, she had to do what she does in this game to survive, but that could mean that after the events of this game she decides to try seeking a non-lethal solution in the future due to the memory of what happened on the island, no loss of prinicples, because how can you lose prinicples before you had them? Just an event that would shape her principles. 

She has the Origin of the Green Arrow?? If there wasn't the TV show would you even know who the Green Arrow.... ah you're nerd age post actually answers that question doesn't it.  No copying of the Green Arrow's back story as she doesn't use a bow all the time in the other games, only in this game, and anyway untill there is an Green Arrow game this is a mute point. 

Does she look sexy? really you are back on that? seriously man get a life, go out, get laid, lusting after computer generated images isn't a healthy obsession to have. Same goes for you're obsession with her jumping, she isn't there to jump, she is there to explore, the jumping style she uses is purely because she is no athlete and is as expert as you seem to be on long distance jumping. Weapons, your argument is weak and disproves itself. Man hating American Indian, you mean Man Hating Native American you racist prat.  If you bothered to see most of the game footage she is caked in mud and all kinds of other s*** from moving around the island hence the skin coloration seeming darker not that it really matters what tone her skin is.

I would disprove the rest of you're post but to be honest I skipped the rest as I am not as fluid in troll as you obviously are.
