It's hard to say exactly. They are fundamentally different so it's virtually impossible to compare them. However, here are some aspects (good and bad): 1) It has lame elements from Underworld, such as: white ledges, invisible walls, linearity, blackouts, no free climbing, no open world, no sprint, no tough secrets, no swimming! That was the biggest letdown about this game. It killed realism. 2) It's relatively easy game, at least for those who used to beat tough puzzles from old games. I remember that I've spent months (!) playing The Last Revelation and Angel of Darkness (for those who have no idea: it's Tomb Raider 4 and Tomb Raider 6) but TR2103 is indeed million times harder and better than LAU trilogy. 3) (for the first time) TR has day/night cycles which is amazing. You can revisit areas in different periods of time. It also has amazing weather effects. This is a big plus for TR. 4) This game is a total reboot but you can still recognize some nice elements from previous TR games which is really good. Even though Lara is no longer an anti-heroine, she's now just a good girl killing everyone around. 5) Characters are kinda lame in this game but the main protagonists Lara and Roth are quite cool. However Lara suffers way too much in this game but in the next second she's good to go lol. Wish I had such regeneration abilities. 6) Level design is beautiful. Beach, shanty town, forest, mountains are amazing. However there are some really crappy booooooring and cartoonish places like rivers of blood and shores of skulls Like they literally killed billion people on that damn island. Laboratory was a lame place as well. A huge building with zero equipment, what a lab is that. Geothermal caverns ain't good either with some cartoonish green gas lol. 7) This game lacks sense of danger. It's full of QTE and automatism. In 99% Lara won't miss ledge, you're virtually unable to throw her from the cliff. You no longer need to carefully choose timing and spacing to make a jump. You just jump and Lara will grab automatically. It's really lame. Sometimes she can't die lol. 8) Really amazing elements are not there: no monkey swing, no commando crawl, no tightrope walking, no rope swinging and all those good ol' acrobatics. Instead just lotsa ledge hopping like in Underworld .. meh. 9) Autoheal and checkpoints killed realism. You no longer need to care about HP. It reduces challenge. 10) No proper stealth system. So you just grab a gun and see how Lara turns to Rambo. Verdict: 8.5/10 It's still a nice game. Must-play game for a TR fan. It's better than Underworld. I like this new direction. If the next game will have more puzzles and tombs and less shooting it will rock.
