i'm going to hire this rather than buy.
everything i've seen and heard of this game is seriously iffy. obviously, i've not played it though.
some things that stick out:
the scene where lara's climbing up the planet, are a total rip off of uncharted's climbing up the plane scene, only in TR it looks extrememly cumbersome, full of QTEs and the graphics, i'm sorry, just look retro compared to uncharted.
12 hours, in an open world game. really? i bet 6 of those hours are travelling in between missions.
also, lara's character. she better turn into the lara we all know and love by the end of the game, because all the ads just show her as a wimp. and i just wont be able to believe a wimp can do the things we see her doing in the vids so far.
i LOVE tomb raider games (nearly all of them), but this looks like they are making a (cheap) copy of uncharted rather than taking the tomb raider formula and improving on it.
here's hoping the actual game says different...
