Needless Copycat Multiplayer.
Could use a bit more Tombs.
Definitely agree with you there.
Biggest Con: there is a multi-player mode. Period. This is Tomb Raider, I don't want ANY multi-player content, it is entirely
irrelevant to me and Lara!
Cons added (PC version):
Removal of the first Tomb in the Coastal Forest from the game (DLC)
That Tomb is available if you're playing the PC game, it's a free download from Steam.
Requirement of Steam for a Singleplayer game
A good deal of my games these days are Steam games; it's no longer an issue for me, and it's not as if they're requiring an "always on" connection, it's only idiots like Blizzard and EA that think that's a good idea in a single-player game.
While you get plenty of value for your money, the ending is a bit of a let down. Plus that you won't get enough salvage to upgrade all your weapons.
I disagree, the ending worked well for me. Loads of open-ended possibilities, which is what you expect from an 'origins' story.
get enough salvage to upgrade all weapons. I nearly did it today, but I was about 100 points short at the final 'fast travel' camp, so I missed out on 100% completion by just one weapon upgrade. (I was playing 'Hard' combat level too :), it's not much harder than 'Normal' though, the bad guys are a bit tougher, and can aim slightly more accurately, that's about all I could tell)
Which also brings forth the next question. Is it worth buying the game on a disc now days when the game itself is downloaded from Steam?
I've stopped worrying about Steam being online, but then my study is stuffed to the gunnels with hard-copies, whereas Steam copies only take up space on my HDD when I want them to, and I can still play games I bought on Steam in 2009 without having to root around in dusty piles of DVDs, or worry about a disc being missing, or leant to a friend....
My only long term concern with Steam is if they go out of business, or I can no longer get to my games.
