    Oh and for what its worth, after about an hour and half's play I think itt's like a lovely mix of Arkham Asylum and Uncharted. Nicely focused but still vaguely open areas with lots of detail and things to pick up.

    I'm finding myself compulsively searching every nook and cranny. I'm a sucker for the finding new items to reach earlier areas design school.

    So far i quite like it.

    If you're not awake 24 hours a day you're doing it wrong.

    Beautiful tender beings.

    Just picked this up from Grainger, traded it for Crysis 3 and only had to pay 1 difference!

    Good deal, especially as this game shits all over Crysis 3 from a great height.

    Just travelled back to some earlier camps for the first time - you get to see places you've already been at different times of day, and under different weather conditions. Lovely.

    Also just realised that I missed a Tomb early on. It definitely pays to study your map closely.

    This popped through the door I'm informed by my girlfriend, who is off today whilst I'm at work. I got a text an hour later saying it's epic....

    I could go off her ;)

    The QTE's suck and as much as the combat feels good theres starting to be too much of it 3hrs in. Can't believe just how much they have plagiarised from Uncharted for it too from the way the enemies move to hulks with shields. Love the sense of exploration and want more of it.

    potential to be better than the others 'TR's' IMO.

    I am assuming there's just tons of gears of war/uncharted cover shooting, and very little exploration? Whats the balance like?

    Also no icons on the screen unless it mentions you are picking up ammo or xp gained

    Yeah the QTEs, actually don't mind failing them just to see the death scenes. :)

    Has the TR look with an Uncharted style adventure. Only about hour into the game, so can't comment about the later parts of the game.

    The few Action shooting scenes have been fun so far , now on a killing spree of chickens

    @Benno That's what I assumed but in fairness in the first 2 hours there's very little. I hit a good half hours worth though after that which as nice as it was to control, bored me I just wanted to get back to the exploration. I sure the pace is set just right and if you hunt for hidden Tombs too I reckon it will balance in favour of down times.

    Just found a bug in the first tomb you can raid. Raised the cage so I can jump from there to the wall I can climb up. Now the game won't let me jump from the cage in any direction.

    Not been online so might have been fixed in a day one patch

    Gamepad here, just feels more natural. Especially for controlling walking pace - I like to stroll along with a burning torch in my hand.

    Had a couple of small, inconsequential glitches, the funniest of which involved Lara spontaneously dying for no reason. didn't happen again when it reloaded just before that point so all fine.

    @richardiox wow! That's a hell of a deal! I can only rely on blockbuster over here so I'm expecting little change from Crysis 3 and A:CM

    Grainger Games are kings of the indies. In context, to get the same deal from Game, I would have needed to trade Cry3 AND another recent big name release.

    Can't wait until later, going to get forced to watch Manchester vs Madrid but then I've got Xbox time :)
