Tomb Raider 9 (aka TR 2013)

Has anyone ever played this? I finally played single player and beat it in a few days, and it's one of the best games I've played this generation. The story is great, characters are likeable (though at times very cliche), and most importantly the gameplay is solid and fun. Just wondering what people's opinions are on this game

Yeah but I'm not particularly far into it because I'm permanently working. The gameplay is definitely solid as you said, all of the mechanics are great too but my problem is definitely with the supporting cast, I feel as though Lara is so deep and realised though that she makes the other characters feel a bit 2D and unbelievable at times

Apart from that, it's no doubt worth a play and the story seems great so far albeit predictable

I swear half of the QTEs were broken in it. Like, the game will accept you pressed the right button when it wants to, regardless of you pressing it on time.

I recently got it during the Steam sale, and remembered how screwy the QTEs were within the first 5 minutes. Near the beginning, not quite the very beginning, but a little later in, there was this scene where Lara is grabbed, the first button to press, on a controller, was Y.

I watched that goddamn fucking grab scene 50 times over because I wasn't pressing Y at the EXACT fucking millisecond it would accept it.

A bit later in the game, you are hanging upside down, and have to do this rocking/swinging thing with the stick, I sat there near a fucking hour trying this shit, no joke. Could NOT fucking do it no matter what rhythm I kept.

I reload the game, do it within the first 5 seconds of starting, and damn near hulk punched the TV.

Overall, awesome game, but fuck the fucking QTEs man. QTEs already fucking suck, but broken QTEs are literally cancer.

QTEs do suck, but I played it on the PS3 and didn't have that problem. I wonder if it's a PC thing?

The one QTE I had a problem with was the first encounter where you had literally a fraction of a second to hit it just right near the beginning. The rest were okay. Still, down with QTEs in all games :l

Great game, but I thought it tailed off a small bit towards the end.

I liked it but I didn't like the emphasis on shooting. It should have had more platforming/tomb raiding like the older games imo. And I thought it was silly that your first kill is super difficult and hard for Lara to handle emotionally but right after that she's suddenly totally proficient with a gun and is just like "whatever." And by the end you're packing AK-47s and explosive arrows while mowing down countless droves of enemies. It was weird.

i really enjoyed it but the characters were kinda shitty, preferred them to the uncharted ones though.

preferred the gameplay too

yeah i liked it, boring once you've beaten it though
