Hi all,

Anyone have any thoughts on this game? It's due out in a few days and I am anxious to see if it will be something I can handle.

I really enjoyed Underworld but Legend and Anniversary were a little too much for me. I would not have made it through them without the help of Stella's save games.

I've been reading the reviews of the new TR and have mixed feelings. They indicate that it will have the same controls as Underworld but will be adding several elements that may require more finger dexterity than I will be able to handle. It has mentioned some RPG elements that may or may not be a good thing.

Anyway since it is due to be released on 4 March (at least from Steam) I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts.

I'm a sucker for Tomb Raider games, so I've not bothered with any reviews, as it's inevitable that I'll buy it ... [short break whilst I pre-order on Steam] ... see? Told you so. wink

Hiya Oldman, I haven't played the TR games, so I am no help. I know we have an enthusiastic TR group here, so hopefully you'll get the info you need.

Gremlin, play play play and come back and let us know what you think puppy

I'm a Tomb Raider addict! I love and have all the TR Games. I watched a video of the complete new TR Game that included an interview with the creators. It looks excellent. Gremlin and I are on the same page when it comes to TR games. I never get tired of replaying them.

Best Buy stores is showing they will have the game for XBox 360 and Playstation for $59.99. I'm hoping for a PC version.

Kaki's Sister, there is definitely a Steam version for PC, where the cost should be about $40, not nearly $60! The only downside is that you don't get a physical disk or box, but there is an upside - Lara Croft and the Guardians of Light comes as a free extra.

Gremlin is right it is $45 if you preorder from Steam plus 3 rewards which you can see on the site. If you already have the steam application you can preorder directly from the Steam app.

I'm going to wait until you two have been playing for a while and then try to pick your respective brains for input on the difference between this one and Underworld.

I'l be awaiting your comments on the game.

This is a game that I'm actually looking forward to (except for SimCity 2013). But I might have to invest in a new graphics card just to play it smirk

Going to go with the Survival Edition though for about $63 (428 SEK)

Smiley, sounds like a great reason to get an upgrade to me. What is in the Survival Edition?

Gerry, hi! wave

I see where you saw a video of the
new TR game the other day. Was it
the PS3 or PC version?

What's the difference between the PS3
TR Underworld game that was released
in November, 2008, and the one being
released in a few days? Is this an
upgraded version with better graphics?

Thanks, Gerry!

Aser rah

Aser, Feeb88 posted a link where you can watch an interview and a video of the new Tomb Raider. Here is the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9i_U9y4BWI

This is a completely new game and nothing like TR UnderWorld.

I have never played a Tomb Raider game. Is there respawning of bad guys in this game? I like a game where there is no respawning (except for specific quest purposes)such as in the Elder Scroll games. The Sacred games had ridiculous respawning.
