I'd put it on par with Uncharted 2 overall, but I think the combat is better in TR and the collapsing / running sections feel more natural too. It's absolutely better than Uncharted 3 by a desert mile.
Seems, judging by some topics I saw, the rabid PS3 fanbase seem to need this to not be as good as an Uncharted game just because it's multi-platform and that seems to threaten their exclusive series...or some nonsense. Meanwhile, us gamers probably play both series and enjoy them both.
Thats exactly whats going on here. Uncharted is a PlayStation exclusive, so they have to say it's a better game because if they say Tomb Raider is better, then Uncharted being Sony's best exclusive becomes irrelevant when there's a better game in that genre.
Some textures are low res, colourless, some animations during action sequences are quite janky and out of place, it's quite rough around the edges in places, the AI is terrible and it's not anywhere near Uncharted 3 on a technical level, at least on consoles, obviously.
I prefer Uncharted more but I beat them haven't beat TR yet
Funny that a lot of people don't even use examples of why one is better than the other. One guy did say that uncharted had more memorial over the top moments that were done better and this point in the game I agree.
I also like the variety of environments in uc 2 and 3
I get TR is on an island but so far I'd like to see some other environments than jungle (maybe that comes later)
