I read that Declassified was like ME3 which I found fun, but there are tons of shining reviews for Tomb Raider.

Should I just wait longer? Think prices will go lower than that for steam maybe? Can anyone who played them both recommend one vs the other?

Haven't played Declassified, but I can tell you that Tomb Raider is a great, great game well worth that price, hell I'd say it's worth it at full price.

Go with Tomb Raider.

Yeah, Declassified is sorta like ME3 gameplay on steroids except it's not very fun. The introduction level is a blast but that's only because it gives you some awesome characters with fun abilities... and then it takes them away from you. I only played through the first few level before putting it away but I remember the cooldown on abilities taking waaay too long and that my AI teammates don't seem to understand how cover works (they'll go to cover like I order them to but won't actually use the cover in an effective manner)

So yeah, go with TR.

is that the xcom 3rd person shooter? that game is a whole new level trash, Tomb Raider is atleast a solid game worth playing once

I read mixed reviews. Most of the bad reviews just deal with how the game wasn't what the poster expected, which to me isn't a reason to give a game a bad review.

Implying there wont be an Xcom bundle with The Bureau in the $1 tier.


I hear nothing but great things about The Bureau, lack of advertising but "spin-off" probably caused it to sell poorly

Well, I already own the most recent X-com. Not the DLC though. So I'm not really interested in a bundle.

Its down to 5 dollars already, wow, fell hard. Its cheaper than the actual x-com game now.

Declassified is a bag of ass. I'm sorry. It's a clunky, uninspired mess that they threw into the Xcom universe and tried to force you to love it with unlikeable characters and a bland environment.
