Completed it today. 7.5/10

But another game that resorts to QTE final bosses and a practically non existent conclusion. Two short clips and then straight to titles.


The ending was a rather rushed affair and actually a lot less difficult than previous parts of the game. Having been disappointed that you didn't get to go one on one with the Oni when they first appeared I was thrilled when you finally did, but that was underwelming as it was easily dropped like a sack of shit. I did like the birth of Lara using the twin pistols though. Anyone else, collected all the GPS Caches yet? Interesting hint with the last one of what might come next...

Easy final boss, you say? You're not just getting my hopes up, are you?

6 hours on this yesterday (takes me a while faffing around looking for stuff) and as I was quitting I somehow ended up I a multi player death match . Not being a multi player sort of person I died the minute it started . Won't be going back there!!

I've JUST got past that bit yesterday. Like you i'm really liking it although i've run past all of the side missions (apart from lighting statues). The dismembered bodies everywhere is pretty graphic for TR. I'm not sure how much more of the game remains but I get the feeling possibly not much...!?

The radio tower? That's pretty much right at the start. Loads more to do.

I'm running around collecting all the stuff I missed on the run through. Am on the mountain temple and can't see any way to get down to the lower levels other than a rope ladder, but no matter what I do the silly cow just won't climb down it, if I'm lucky she kind of crouches near it, but usually just flings herself off the cliff and screams like it's my fault!?!??!

Any suggestions????

If I remember rightly you need a rope arrow to get down the levels. You fire at the posts with rope wrapped round them which then gives you a kind of rope/zip wire.

Had a pretty heavy (well for a casual gamer like me anyway!) gaming session this Easter weekend and now 62% complete... just been spotted in the Monastery by that giant warrior bloke and his minions dressing him. The bit on the ship was sad and i've just stood and looked out to sea a couple of times, the sunset was gorgeous. Amazing graphics on this! Unless it REALLY picks up in the last quarter I think this game will be a 3.5/5 for me, it's good but it's not quite excellent. I think you can very easily run/glide through a lot of the scenarios and the QTE events are over way too quickly, so a brief thrill and then back to running around shooting guys/animals. However, as reboots go it's good and I would love to see an 18 rated film version!

I started this last week. It's good, I just feel like I'm killing too many people but maybe that's because I'm shit at being stealthy. I just got the climbing pick so I'll hopefully enjoy it a bit more if I get to do some proper exploring and if there are actual tombs in the game. It looks great though.

More often than not killing folk is the only way.

Or maybe I'm just shit at being stealthy also.

I learnt from my time in Skyrim that I'm shit at being stealthy

In fact I'm surprised it didn't take me longer to sneak past the guys at the beginning of the game (it did take a few tries though....)

I finished it last weekend. Like someone else has said I think the ending was very rushed and it was obvious the big bad wasn't going to take much killing as he was human afterall. I stick to my main concerns in an earlier post... too many QTEs, was like watching a movie with a bit of gameplay thrown in; I never really found myself blown away by it tbh and I think the sequel will probably iron out some of those issues. However, graphics wise and scale it was stunning.

Oh and it turns out the movie rights for this more adult rebooted version have already been sold to MGM I believe?

I was quite the stealthy fucker in Skyrim, moderately successful so far in Tomb Raider, but totally hopeless in a "might as well have cymbals attached to his feet" style in Hitman: Absolution.  Seriously, I couldn't sneak up on a corpse in that game!

I got TR for my birthday at the weekend and have played nothing else since.  It's bloody marvellous, if a little unforgiving of mistimed jumps.  But then again, so was the original game   I'm pretty much ploughing through the single player game (just met the big guardian fella) but there's so much I know I'm missing (discovered yesterday that I could steal eggs from nests!  WTF?)

A sequel to the reboot is happening, but only for the next gen consoles, mixed news for me as I probably won't be buying a next gen machine!

Well, I didn't see that coming!

Rise of The Tomb Raider, exclusive to Xbox One. Clicky!

Balls. I was really looking forward to that... Hopefully a 'Special Edition' PS4 version will be released down the line - I'm thinking similar to what was done with Bioshock or Alone In The Dark.

It seems that MicroSoft's exclusivity on the new Tomb Raider may have a duration, so hopefully it'll come to PS4 down the line

Was about to post that, I wonder how long it is.

Appears to be cross-gen as well, was really hoping they'd go all out on the new consoles. Still I guess for those that can't wait the 360 version is an option at least, assuming they have one that is.

I think the wording infers that you can only play it on 'holidays 2015' on Xbox, so my assumption is PC/PS4 get a release in early 2016

Based on word from the devs it wont be coming to PS4.

I imagine MS will be providing a massive amount of input in terms of marketing, dev tools etc so the Xbox iteration of this sequel will not be coming to PS4 at all. Phil Spencer has stated that they have exclusivity on this particular game and not the franchise. So they can't control a separate game coming to the PS4/Vita/Wii U etc

Personally I think it is a big move and good for MS, it will appear on the 360 too probably.

If it was a Sony exclusive I also imagine the uproar wouldn't be as loud. Just my opinion though.

I think they will position it as an Uncharted competitor.
