Why is Tomb Raider a success but DmC isn't?

#1JELIFISH19Posted 4/3/2013 4:02:55 AM
Both were radical departures from previous games
Neither character fits the old series
Both were origin stories
Both were darker than older games
Both had a lot of fan backlash
Both got good reviews

So what happened?

Because Tomb Raider had good gameplay actually better in alot of ways than old games. DmC is not better than old games in no way gameplay-wise. In action game this is most important ingredient mate.

Also DmC not origin unless you mean it be origin of reboot but that just sound curaazy since it only game now.

another one of these topics? It's pretty simple really. Tomb Raider was turned into a VERY casual cover based shooter. That's where all the big bucks lie. next DMC5 will most likely be one. With dante, his trusted ak-47 "olga" and his trademark combat knife "rebellion" wreaking havoc against middle eastern terrorist organisation "charlie's devils"

Tomb Raider actually turned out to be a good game, DmC turned out to be a very average action game that had trouble standing apart from other average action games when it had the standards of its predecessors to live up to.

Tomb Raider was as good if not better then its predacessors.

DmC was worse then those that came before it and an insult to its fans due to a lot of bad publicity and overall changes

DmC was an ok game while Tomb Raider was pretty great

Crystal Dynamics didn't "hilariously" compared old Lara with the new one, the way Ninja Theory did with DmC.

yes, why?
TR got aesthetics of a Tomb Raider game but DmC retains a whole lot more in gameplay department.

aesthetics > gameplay?

A good reboot can revive any serious and be successful. But DMC was in the hands of inexperienced lunatics with ridiculous ideals.
