Am i the only person to be not excited about this?
I always found the original, and #2, to be slow-moving, fairly boring 3rd person puzzlers. For the original PS, why have Tomb Raider when you could have Syphon Filter?
I think if I'm totally honest, there is a bit of nostalgia here for me, I have fond memories of working my way through the previous games. Had it not been for that, I'd wait for the reviews before platying it, certainly wouldn't have pre-ordered.
Syphon Filter had a faster pace to it, and the puzzles were just as difficult. I found that TR never engaged me in the way SF did. I know that it's all opinion and horses for courses, but I couldn't get into TR.
And as for Lara Croft being some kind of pin-up..... :rollseyes:
personbloke I've ever spoken to who could say if Lara Croft were a real woman they'd kick her out of bed, I thought she was every teenage geek's dream girl!

Not much to get excited about, other than the gameplay!!!
Although.....there was always the imagination aspect of walking into a bar on Lave, as Dangerous, and watching the other traders scuttle away, and leave the best looking ladies behind....
Wait....I think I may have revealed too much about my pubescent self!!!
Managed to get about 20 minutes on it this morning while the nipper got ready for school (after trying to figure out why the hell it wouldn't start for 10 minutes - apparently my GTX560 doesn't like "exclusive full screen mode")
Really liking what I've seen so far. It feels very fluid when switching from cut scene to gameplay (in fact I just stood there a couple of times not realising it was "my turn"!), already had a nice simple puzzle to get started, bit of running and leaping and some reaction time scenes, all felt nicely balanced and flowed well.
Haven't played it for anywhere near long enough to form an opinion on it, but the outlook is good.
EDIT: it seems there are a lot of issues with Nvidia GPU's at the moment, hopefully Nvidia will get updated drivers out soon, though I haven't had anywhere near as many crashes as others are reporting in the Steam forums. Again, I only played for 20 minutes so I can't say with any authority that it's not as bad as people are making out...

I loved the first tomb raider it was the first game I saw on a 3DFX card 4MB voodoo and it looked so awesome compared to the Playstation version. - having to play it on a gravis pad + Also backing Lara into a corner to see polygon boobs!
aerospacemango of course )
I remember that a CVG published the codes for Action Replay that made Lara "naked" in TR2 - it actually just made her outfit flesh coloured and bizarrely turned her blonde! The code was a full page in the magazine and took about 20 minutes to enter assuming you got it right first time - teenage boys eh?!
Can't wait to play this one - hope they've posted it by the time i get in tonight!
Wonder if they kept any of the codes from the originals - I used to love getting the weapons code wrong and seeing her explode (or doing it in a cave and jumping backwards down a hole )!
Ah - the code to turn her "naked".... many hours spent on that...in my room...alone.
Got a couple more hours on this last night and I have to say, it's exactly what I was hoping for. It feels every bit the Tomb Raider game, just refreshed. Puzzles so far have been very simple, but I'm hoping that's just because I'm not very far in to the game.
Anybody else playing?
