Its simplicity yet thoroughly enjoyable gameplay got me hooked. Only TR3 I thought was crap. All the rest were pure genius and I played them all til the end then again to try and find all hidden areas.
I always knew this new TR game would be shite from reading about how they changed it a bit from the standard gameplay we (or at least some) all loved. Im definately not looking forward to playing this. It sounds like they have shot themselves in the foot with a missing shotgun
Why they felt the need to revamp the series baffles me. The previous TR games always did well and people loved them. Are they trying to piss those of us who loved the gameplay style off and get a new audience because it seems like they havent pleased anyone. Its not as good as MGS or Splinter Cell if you like those kind of games (which I dont) and its not a Tomb Raider game anymore so I wont like it.
Such a shame. Waited so long for a new Tomb Raider game and along comes this steaming bag of wank.
