    I get bored really fast with Tomb Raider games. Low replay value.

    Im not sure I'm gonna get it yet, maybe at a later time. It does look intriguing though... I haven't played a Tomb Raider game in a while and from what I am hearing this one is supposed to be good.

    Thanks for the screenies :D

    ah good old tomb raider. Haven't really got into these games since the third one. Still i do like the logically thinking aspects of the old ones than the graphics of the new ones.

    The first song that popped into my head after seeing those screen shots... ZZ Tops "Legs". :eek::ohwell:

    Game looks good though. I am thinking I will pick it up after I beat FC2 and Resistance 2, which is of course after I beat GoW 2 (WHICH IS AWSOME!!! :rockout::rockout:)

    Ah dude, I mean this is actually pretty cool, lara's got some new moves man and it makes it all the more fun, granted they give you weapons and ammo. and using weapons is still a pain in the rear, but at leasts she can target 2 enemies at once now.

    Thor's hammer is sooo cool. Is the dual handgun unlimited ammo? weapons you choose are limited in ammo and grenades so the dual handgun is unli ammo right

    actually the uzi's no those are limited ammo, her pistols are unlimited. And the AR15 is limited, along with the combat shotgun. I still got a while to go in that game. haven't found too much use for the shotgun, uzi's are great.

    I've been playing this game since Friday and I'm completely addicted. I've only just started the Mexican mission (4th I guess). I never played any of the other TR games but now I wish I had although I dont want to go back and play them with last gen graphics no support for the 360 controller. This game is great though.. it's a nice change of pace from the constant sound of machine gun fire. I really like all the acrobatics and problem solving (even if the problems are not that complex)

    A joke?

    TR games make me think hard, and they make him think hard too.

    How many hours did it take you to complete? I was new to TR so it took a good hour or two to get her abilities mastered for climbing and swinging.

    Man this game is weak.

    I'm not sure if it is because i'm getting old but seriously, motorbike level - what the hell were they smoking when they thought that one up?

    it's just one linear level after the other.

    I remember spending hours searching for that one little hole you had to get through in order to progress but now you drive a motorbike around... WHAT?

    again maybe it's because i'm older. It just feels as if the game has been dumbed down far too much now.

    OK excluding the bike level. Do you feel the other levels have the same linear feel? Did you play the other TR titles and this one sucks in comparison?
