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?
For me it went downhill when they went on with this one weapon one hit kill thing. Me no like.

I liked it when you had a minute to drive a boat from one end to the other, when you had the boulder crashing towards you and you had to leap out of the way. None of this slow-mo rubbish.

Feels like they ran out of ideas and now rely on cut scenes to explain whats going on, instead of figuring it out for yourselves.

I want them to remake TR1 in its entirety. No new moves, just give it a graphics update.

And that may have just turned me off this game... lol:shadedshu
That makes sense. W1zz didnt like the game so you better avoid it like the plague. :shadedshu

I guess if played the other games I would see your point. As it stand this is my first experience with TR and I really like it.

I have played only a demo and even didn't end it, but I wasn't bored at all. I chose not to play any longer, because I have played with no full effects and I had lags when there was immediate change of action (my PC is weak for that game). I must say that I love it for environment interactive - I really felt like I was there, not just watch...

This would be my first TR game too, so I might have to find a demo and download it before I just shove it to the wind. I'll do that tonight while I play GoW2 again :rockout:

Honestly the first 10 minutes were the least enjoyable. You have to dive and swim around looking for something and I could see people getting lost. Luckily I found the keys and never looked back.
