Symach is 100% correct. I am blown away at how much better this game is than uncharted. This game is some well balanced. It just keeps pulling me through the game to the point I cant stop playing. in uncharted It felt like so much of the game was ridiculously unbelievable and the slow part were boring. Uncharted is like a a roller coaster with highs and lows, where as Tomb Raider like a fast moving river. Can you say Game of the Year?
Well I've played all the Uncharted's and enjoyed them all (esp UC2) but this new TR is better in every conceivable way. The combat is tigher with much more dynamic shootouts, the guns feel better to use, it has less linear and non-automated exploration, the set-pieces are on par if not better, the graphics are actually better than UC3 (for a multiplat that is one hell of an acheivment) and the leveling up system is more in-depth.
The only area Uncharted has the upperhand is in the co-op segments which this game lacks. I would say the storyline is TR is better too, it's more mature and doesn't suffer from Lara making sarcastic remarks every 10 seconds through the entire game.
