    This seems to be going under the radar a bit, very little buzz about it and its out in two weeks time. Think its gonna suffer coming out around the same time as spiderman. Really enjoyed the last two games, never liked the original ones.

    Prob wait until november and get it discounted in the thanksgiving sale, still have god of war (though I think I'll have forgotten how to play that by the time I get back to it) and a load of other games to play first.

    Last one was good so will definitely get this. Will wait until its in the sale though.

    Loved the originals on PS1 but prefer the way they aren't as linear now

    Both of the rebooted ones have been....fine.

    They had to reboot them for the modern era I suppose but she have lacked the sassy confidence of the older titles. Everything has to be a film these days.

    Has anyone clocked this yet? How many hours of game play would you say?

    Considering getting it but wondering if it’s worth the price?

    Not seen anyone talking about this and this thread has had minimal interest. What an awful time for them to release it :lol:

    Thankfully it should mean it'll be in the sale soon enough

    I'd wait for a few weeks for the black friday sale (if you buy from the PSN store) this and assasins creed are pretty much guaranteed to have a good chunk knocked off the price

    ridiculous time to release it, up against spiderman and red dead. They fucked up the last time by doing the xbox exlusive and now fucked this one up by releasing at the wrong time. They seem determined to kill the franchise.

    Throw in call of duty & fifa too. Not that I'll be buying them but they're incredibly popular and none of their customers would buy tomb raider over it.

    Mate at work said it's a bit of a let down this time around, gonna wait and pick it up cheap. Already down to £30 most places.

    Was going to wait for this anyway, and already down to £30. Hopefully it comes down a bit more in the January sales

    I'll rent it I reckon, renting games has saved me an absolute fortune in games or at least I've played a lot more games than I would have for the same outlay over the past year or two. Need to stop playing on Red Dead first though which isn't gonna happen for a long long time

    Worst one of the series IMO. Hardly any combat and boring missions. So disappointed, I loved the first two. :(

    I could never bring myself to play a game where the central character was a female, as I just couldn’t do the usual ‘put yourself in their place’ type of relating to the game. I always used to design the characters in games to look as much like me as possible, and back when I was young enough I’d use my actual real stats in football and cricket games when creating my player (impossible on Fifa now, being an overweight 41 year-old *sadface*). I even play games making moral decisions that I believe I’d make in the same situation. I’ve tried to be evil and antagonistic in rpgs, but it just doesn’t sit right. It’s sad as fuck, I’m well aware of that....I’m just a horrible misogynistic prick at heart, I guess. Sorry.

    Sexist fucking bastard!! ;)

    Mind, when you can design a character, I also make them as much like me as possible too. I hate it when glasses aren’t an option!

    I enjoyed the first two games of the reboot for the gameplay but the character development, especially with NPCs did nothing for me. Think I'll give this a miss until it's on a deal

    Bought this for 30 from Smyths - finished it in 10 days (about 3 hours a day), then trade in for cash at CEX today for £23.00

    This is generally what I do. Very rarely keep games these days.
