I'm sure they had to reinvent some aspects in order to appeal to the COD & Uncharted crowds to appease the shareholders but the direction this game has taken and the utter, utter garbage the PR people have thrown at us has soured me about the whole game.
So yes, i'd bloody love it if they were capable of putting together an old-school Tomb Raider experience as i'm really not that attracted to Uncharted. I'm sure this reboot will be a good Uncharted clone but that just means i'll pick it up in a sale later on in the year.
If it was like an updated old-school Tomb Raider game without the ham-fisted story then i'd be there day 1 but so far their PR has shown nothing of the sort.
Lara used to be a strong, intelligent and independent woman now they've turned her into some kind of nutjob. Weak and forlorn in the cutscenes and an unrepentant killing machine in the gameplay. It just doesn't fit especially after harping on about how they were adding story and a reason to care about Lara. Heavy handed and ill-placed.
Give me that and i'll buy your Tomb Raider game.
