Ugh... Swimming is Back...

Seriously... Out of all the things to bring back from revelations... It's not Parker or the lack of QTE's...

But Swimming?

It wasn't bad, It just wasn't good either.

It was more tedious, time consuming barriers in a already fairly padded out game.

And it was only really scary in the very last stage, it was just frustrating the rest of the time.

Why, in 2012, do devs continue to insist on putting swimming levels in games? They're always terrible, without fail.

Treasures of the Deep was the only good swimming game. Ever!

Dino Crisis 2 had a OKAY swimming moment...but for a first timer, it got on my nerves royally everytime I missed the goddamn jumps >.<

Most of them just scared me as a kid, I remember chemical plant zone on Sonic 2...when that drowning music came up I literally turned the game off in fear...now that I think about it I f**king laugh at myself about it. If they can invoke good fear with good controls underwater I would love it.

And so what your saying is it was 'mediocre' at best, Zurkon?

Revelations was great, 20,000 leagues ahead of 5...

But the swimming was the low point, by far.

I dunno....I never knew why swimming was added in the first place. Probably to create more dread of being attacked from anywhere in a unknown depth however it wasn't really underwater sections in the old games. If done better than revelations it could be great but I hold major doubt if that was truly a low point of a past game. Capcom seems to have a sluggish time expanding on things :/

I think it was because they were on a boat, and knew it would sink at one point...

That still doesn't explain why Leon is swimming in a body pit in China.

Classic Tomb Raiders had good swimming
