    I found a lot of bugs into the game, but most of them were unnoticeable.
    The game was normally not like the old one and it felt so much like Assassin's Creed...
    The Sims diamond was so copied :rolleyes:

    Smells like NVidia attacking the title.

    Just like Aliens, I don't get any of the issues so many "guides" show. Maybe they shoulda actually BOUGHT the game. :p

    I played through Aliens twice now, have yet to encounter ANY of the "reported" bugs. Not one. But then, I buy games. LOTS of games.:roll:

    Only time I notice a slight slowdown is when menus pop up for the first time aside from that it looks nice and the game is okay so far. It might just have to do with background apps and memory usage but thats the only critique I have so far.

    Well I don't generally drop below 30 FPS ave even at max settings, but you really can't tell what the min FPS is until you run the in-game or Fraps benchmark. It's also hard to tell how much effect it has since it's more of a subtle drop in movement speed than noticeable hitching or lagging. Trust me though, I can definitely tell after changing the settings.

    After seeing the benches posted I'm thinking it's mainly due to the game being very CPU intense. Everyone getting pretty good min FPS is running a current or recent gen CPU.

    I played through it on an NVIDIA with no issues myself. I guess buying the game does make a difference. :laugh:

    a) what nvidia got to do with gameplay bugs?
    b) it happens on ps3 and xbobx as well (it's all over the TR and eidos forums)
    c) what makes you think that they didn't buy the game? :rolleyes: what a pathetic statement
    d) what aliens got to do with this? :confused:

    Well, I've swapped out my two 7970's and have installed with great trepidation a GTX Titan. The frame rate is obviously down but all i've done is taken off AA (not really required on a 2560x1440p resolution).

    I've kept Tress FX on and ultra settings. I'm getting about 30-40fps but the game play is pretty smooth considering. The only visual thing is the lower fps but I' not noticing any major downgrade (i'd have to run them side by side to tell).

    Well I wanted to run the benchmark last night after work but instead I found myself drinking beers and banging my ol lady.

    Benchmark tonight for sure!

    Just played the game until meeting Roth.
    So far bugs/glitches/errors free (except that floaty TressFX hair) and also no crash or any stability issues at all.

    First impression is good.
    Good storyline; interesting mechanic, leveling, and upgrading system; too many QTE; and I hate wolves :D

    a)I dunno, the spread of hate towards the title stinks of it, to me.
    B)This is a PC forum, I don't expect console videos. I expect PC videos, and that said, on PC, this issue is not present for me.
    c)Traditionally, versions found on torrents in early days of release are not retail, and are usually one form or another of preview code given to the media for review purposes. As such, the code is usually not final, and many times bugs reported in reviews aren't seen in retail. It's not pathetic, except maybe because maybe you are taking this a bit personally. I often find videos like this on many titles posted by users that torrented the game, and they expect that retail copies have the same issues. It's not a big deal, but it's something to be mindful of when looking at YouTube videos.
    d)Aliens was reported to have many bugs, AI specifically, but I found none. This title is the same, for me, right now.

    Where did I say that I hate nvidia?
    Ok so if this is PC forum then it means that I can't speak my mind? TR is a console port so ps3 and xbox gameplay bugs are present in pc version as well. So it's not ok if I say this but it's ok when you shove your aliens here? Hm ok...
    I may have ignored this but it riled me up. Why? Because I'm TR fan and I play TR games since the late 90s. I own all TR games for all consoles even crappy LAU trio, just to make my collection of TR goodness complete. Retail version I bought is buggy and even Eidos confirmed that. Your statement that "buy the game, got no bugs" is pointless and meaningless. You sounded like you're the only one in this world who bought this game. I bought TR too and millions did as well. And many people experienced bugs but I dunno maybe you rushed through the game with zero achievements just from A to B and had absolutely no bugs *shrugs*

    I never said you did. We should chalk this up to language barriers, IMHO.

    I simply do not see these problems many users report like the recently reelased Aliens, if it is hard to see the correlation there, well, that's that.

    I too have been playing Tomb Raider games since they first came out ,and I do own multiple copies of every game, on every platform ever. I even have a couple of import copies.

    If this game sucked, I'd still buy the next one.


    I use a very basic high-end config with NO oc to play games on, and 99% of the time, I rarely have issues, and I have none with this title. IF me saying that gets you excited, I'm sorry, but that's my experience. BTW, I haven't finished the game yet. I'm not the one trying to insinuate things here, there's no need to from my perspective. :p

    I'm getting toward what appears to be the end. I've done a couple tombs that are more along the story line than optional, and it's getting better gameplay wise. I have tons of tombs showing on the map that have been discovered but not explored though. Does anyone know if you can go back and raid tombs after finishing the campaign? I plan to fast travel back to the camps showing them on the map, but I may miss some.

    No, game never crashed/lagged. I just got those common bugs (like this one) which many people experienced (on all platforms from pc to ps3). Glitches disappear after respawning/reloading so it's definitely gameplay bugs.

    All TR games have bugs, however I never got one in Angel of Darkness but got a couple of really annoying ones in TR 2013, maybe just bad luck with this game. Whatever I hope there'll be a patch.

    Tomb of the Unworthy? The one that Lara can enter after she got her climbing axe, right?
    I did raided this tomb, no bug at all.

    Have you tried restarting from the last checkpoint?

    Wow, I think I spoke too soon. After raiding several tombs only a couple had any kind of challenge, and literally none yet have any of the awesome platforming of previous TRs. I can't beleive how small and easy most of these tombs are. No bugs yet, just disappointment in game design.

    Jesus,

    Its a Tomb Raider series reboot! REBOOOOOOOT. And with that Reboot they are trying to compete with Uncharted. Obviously its not going to the same as other Tomb Raiders.

    It has aspects of the other Tomb Raiders, but the way it plays out is different.
