I have not played the latest TR game. I was wondering who has played it on a PC and what you thoughts are on the game. Thanks.

You might want to check this thread for more info.

But to sum it up. it's a good game. Though you have to remember to use a video walkthrough for some of the more bigger areas and quests (if you decide on playing it) wink

I bought it at the Steam Summer sale. Some minor issues here an there but in my opinion a game worth playing.

I've played the whole thing and have to say that I loved the entire game. The story is compelling, the graphics excellent, the progression of difficulty challenging (but by no means too difficult), the side-quests fitting, and the combat model great.

Thoroughly recommended laugh

Gerry knowing how much you like the Tomb Raider games I'm very surprised that you haven't grabbed this one yet. I'm sure you would enjoy this game immensely.

I liken the controls to TR Underworld. The graphics are simply amazing and the acting superb. Completely different storyline as it is a younger Lara.

The only negative thing I have to say about it is the Quicktime events scattered throughout the game. The game is very unforgiving if you don't hit the right key at exactly the right time for these events but they are not that frequent and you can get used to them (frustrating as they are).

Thanks Smiley, Jarkeld, gremlin, and oldman. Oldman I have not been able to find a PC version of the game in any stores around here only the console games. I keep looking and in the mean time I'm replaying the old ones! Thanks again for your responses. It does sound really good. wave

Gerry, the easiest way to get it, assuming you have a good internet connection, is via Steam.

It looks like they decided not to make a boxed copy for the PC in North America so if you really want a DVD you'll have to order it from amazon.com as an import.

The download from steam works great though.

Thanks oldman. I have a slow DSL internet connection. It's not good for downloading games, especially one like the new TR. I guess the only way for me will be to get it from Amazon or hope it will eventually be released as a PC games in the States. Thanks again.

Gerry what I do is use steam to download and start the download at night and sleep on it. If it's still downloading the next morning you can still use your computer as steam will continue downloading in the background.

Started it today (ps3). Love it so far. Not too difficult. Reminds me of Uncharted smile
