In all honesty this is more like Tomb Raider III. Hope the next one focuses more on this...

Well, to be fair, technically you are raiding a tomb when you enter a Hidden Tomb and raid it of its chest. Obviously it's not like the original series. But it's still raiding a tomb.

Please don't insult TR3 like that. TR3 at least had challenging puzzles.

Funny because it's true. The game was very entertaining, but it was easy to see that the one-room "tombs" you "raid" in this game were put in only to justify still calling the game "Tomb Raider". I can only hope those were a preview of things to come in the next game. A proper sized tomb filled with the kinds of physics puzzles they had in this game would be fantastic.

I also though this was a fun game, and they nailed the approach to the tombs where you're slowly moving through caves armed only with a torch, but the tombs themselves were disappointing. I'd like a sequel to focus more on the exploration of these long-abandoned tombs and the secrets they hold within.

It's an origin story. Lara is too occupied with surviving an island full of crazy rapist archers to raid tombs.

Maybe the next game she'll actually raid some tombs. That or track down Trinity or something.

Besides, didn't you hear her? She hates tombs.

I know they meant that as a joke but it really doesn't seem like something she'd say. ESPECIALLY considering she was already an archeologist by this point.
