Tomb Raider - New Lara for All Stars

12 replies 208 views Edited Mar 6, 2013
So Tomb Raider has released amongst very positive reviews & a heavy marketing push. I luckily enough received my copy via my LoveFilm rental service, which has saved me shelling out the price for the full game.

I've poured a few hours into the game and inital thoughts are very positive, and while I still can't get over how much Lara talks to herself (which is often the case for many games, but it just lacks the charm and seems very odd amongst the realistic and gritty setting the game is trying to paint). Overall, I'm sold on the new Lara, and think shed make a fine addition to the roster, which as we recently discovered, is very much possible aslong as SSM are game for more DLC.

The main motive of this thread however, is to hear other people's impressions of the game (spoiler free please), and ideas for how Lara could be incorporated into All Stars whilst keeping her fresh and unique from the rest of the roster.

I don't care which Lara gets in here as long as she does. I haven't played the game, but does she use her dual pistols at all?

Or did she decide to go all Hawkeye?

Lara is probably the only Squeenix IP will ever get.

I haven't progressed too far into the game, but I myself have been looking out for the dual pistols, their trademark Lara Croft. The games narrative is beautifully paced (except for the bizarre instantaneous transition from first kill to cold blooded murderer), so we will see what else there is to receive. I've been favouring the bow though, pulling off a few silent kills is really satisfying.

Really ? I have yet to try it - although from what I've seen, it looks like a poor attempt to replicate Uncharted's multiplayer.
