Disappointing, boring, safe, and stale. A step back. A game you can live without.
The location itself is boring - YET another Aztec temple (I feel even the Egypt would have been more interesting. How about China? Dear makers - invest in a world map, there are plenty of interesting ancient locations and cultures to investigate).
Obviously the biggest change is the camera view, now 2D and annoying. While I appreciate the change, I personally have never been a fan of using such angles in gaming - especially if the previous part had such beautiful 3D graphics. This feels like a step back, literally, from something I was hoping to grow into something exceptionally spectacular.
Personally, being a player since the very first installment, seeing how Lara Croft change the gaming world and the real one as well, feel cheated. I don't see how the title is supposed to grow when it's not; how to feel excitement when all I feel is boredom. A good game is a game you want to play, and you can't seem to turn off - this was basically asking to be turned off and uninstalled. Maybe next time.
