    This is the problem people are having with it. It might no longer be a sequel in the classical sense anymore and had a 'refresh', but in doing so it's effectively become the exact same thing as all the copycat sequels we get every year. Its not that we think its a bad game at all, its that with this reboot its now become so goddamn generic that it may as well be one of the bland derivative sequels we see every year.

    Look at CoD. I don't think many people are really going to argue that purely quality wise its not an exceptionally well made game. But that won't change the fact that people hate what its come to stand for in the industry. Which is a sacrifice of the dev's creativity for the soulless search of the big bucks.

    Anyway. Here's hoping the rumoured Soul Reaver reboot doesn't end up as another setpiece driven QTE laden cover shooter. Now that really would be something to mourn...

    edit: For the record, I think the "point" Kalel was alluding to, is that (most) people aren't really hating on the game. I think people are more sad that a lot of the stuff that made the franchise so special seems to have been taken out. A lot of us feel that all these 8/10s could have been 9s or 10s had they kept a lot of the features of this remake while still keeping the old TR soul.

    I couldn't play the other Tomb Raider games because I tried them and thought they were crap. This new and different Tomb Raider is more my type.

    What problem? What hate? Don't get me wrong, I agree but the bazillions who buy these games love them and want more.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    I don't think bazillions will buy this. It's a somewhat irrelevant franchise that made a point of pissing off whatever dedicated fanbase it had.

    Like DmC, it now has to convince a whole new audience to not buy Uncharted or Crysis or whatever they were into, and by this instead.

    Make that three...

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    My copy from 2game.com was dispatched yesterday. It's the first time I've used them, trying them out of curiosity. A Friday or Saturday arrival would be very nice indeed!

    The "illegible" word is "ideal". Do we know what AC is?

    I was just looking at that site, don't like ordering from somewhere I've never heard of.

    Yeah, if the price is right and the tombs are properly old school in size and puzzle complexity could be good.

    Although should have had better tombs in game called Tomb Raider from the start huh

    Just took the plunge and ordered off 2game for 29.99. Was going to rent but 15 hours in 5 nights is pushing it. Plus cex will give me 25 cash in two weeks :)

    AC are probably the initials of the dev assigned to the DLC Side Corridors for the game. Looks like they've been assigning tasks during a meeting.

    Well, I though I'd ordered the Survival Edition but I had ordered the Collectors Edition. So, I'll get a thing to play with.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Shopto have just informed me all orders of Tomb Raider will be posted Saturday to adhere to strict release day.:-(
  • Deleted user 1 March 2013 11:54:19
    Shopto are poor of late or should I say poor compared to their old self. My last two orders have not arrived early and a lot of people on here are reporting the same thing. Perhaps got a slapped wrist for breaking date all the time.

    Metal Gear Rising arrived early last week, as did my Anarchy Reigns order in January. Haven't noticed any changes in there impeccable delivery times.

    This is slightly annoying if true, but I've got plenty to do this weekend anyway so it's not a hardship for me.

    Worst case scenario is that I'll lose thirty quid, but I've paid with PayPal I think so I'm fairly sure I can get it back. Thought I'd give them a go, they obviously want my money considering it's the lowest price, I just hope they don't screw me over!

    Credit card always good too. Money protected. They have a few thousand likes on facebook so cant be too bad.
