It's a typical action/adventure that throws explosions in your face constantly. The shooting mechanics are pretty bad. The side characters are really bad and I, personally, didn't care for them at all. Lara has rocks for brains and is, yet again, reliant on a man to help her through some thick spots. Seriously, this is what butchers female protagonists. This is one of the reasons why people hated Other M.
The scene where Lara first kills a guy was pointless. She just goes on and racks up enough kills to rival Kratos. How did she get so good at killing, too? How did she get so good at holding and shooting several different types of guns? Who taught her to shoot a bow so good? How can she jump so far? How can she take so much punishment? I know this is a game but if they wanted to try to make it realistic, they failed. No one can just walk off get impaled to their side.
There are other pointless scenes as well. When that Sam chick was filming life on the boat, why did the developers feel the need to hint at sex? It was that one clip with the black edgy chick luring Roth or whatever his name is into some room. Just because the game is rated M for Mature does not mean the players need sex and gore shoved down their throat. I hate this.
Don't even get me started on the multiplayer. It was so tacked on. Not every game needs multiplayer tacked on. Now, ME3's tacked on multiplayer was really good but that was a special case. This multiplayer is just bad. It has no identity to it. Heck, the whole game doesn't have it's own identity. I also heard the game released with already 30 different DLC pieces you could buy. If true then despicable.
Just my opinion of course. No need to go spreading it around or anything. --- http://i.imgur.com/GB0T9jD.jpg http://i.imgur.com/IUIssak.jpg http://i.imgur.com/t2fVxSJ.jpg http://i.imgur.com/n5tQhgJ.jpg
I agree that it was completely overrated and isn't as good as this board made it seem, but for different reasons than you stated. --- Help me Squirtle, dont just stand there...Im freaking dying "Snyder, Nolan and Goyer need to be lined up and executed." - animeape
never got why people need to say "hey guys, I know it's a practical impossibility for everyone to like the same thing... but this game that not everyone will like, well I don't like it" --- <-<- Proud Graphics Whore ->->
I surprisingly liked it even though I was diehard for the classic style games. I think it's a good game overall, but you can always find unrealistic things, shoehorned themes, bad characters, etc in any and every game. I still hope they somewhat revert back towards the classic elements of TR.. otherwise I believe the series will go downhill.
Time will tell if it really was a good game to stand with the rest of them, my guess is that it will get lost in the sea of "pretty good" games..
