Tomb Raider has dethroned Uncharted

#1ArevinPosted 3/6/2013 10:33:19 AM
Tomb Raider is now the king or should I say queen of cinematic set pieces with action adventure gameplay. Lara is easily the better main character. With Drake, you'd never really cared if he would die or not.

They're both excellent adventure titles, but Lara is definitely a better lead.

Though to be fair, she's constantly whimpering and is clearly scared out of her mind, and as males, our protective instinct kicks in.

So it's hard to say if she's a great lead, or i'm just having her assume the role.

Nah. The set pieces are neat, but I don't really like the game itself.

Maybe I don't like Drake as a character, or something, because even though Tomb Raider has some similarities to the Uncharted games, I'm enjoying a lot more than any of the Uncharteds.

Or maybe I just find the gameplay to be more satisfying, or the fact that, while sparse, TR has some exploration elements. Or maybe it's because I like Lara's characterization.

Dunno.

Am I the only one who sees this a negative rather than a positive? I hate cinematic set-piece crap - where did old fashioned gameplay and depth go?
