Tomb Raider campaign lasts 12-15 hours

Not able to swim?! I spent most of my time in original TR games doing nothing but swim...
Does that mean the potential sequel will be called something like 'Tomb Raider - The Adventure of the Adult Swim Classes'?

I really hope they just mean she can't swim under water and not that if she touches water at all she dies, this isn't the 80s.

Bit short for an open world game really.

Ughhh i'm not liking the sound of any of that.
12-15 hours. Developers always get this wrong. It is usually quite a bit lower.
Not being able to swim and regenerative health? Regenerative health i could live with but not being able to swim is quite silly.

I'm a big Tomb Raider fan, i even liked Underworld. I haven't been excited at all by this game. The only things we've seen are QTE heavy sequences and an uncharted-esque action sequence. We've not really seen any platforming stuff. I'm hope i'm wrong and the game turns out to be great as i don't think they'll get another chance if this flops.

Hmm, this could turn out to be a disappointment for a lot of people. Maybe.

Can't swim? 12-15 hours? Think I'll go back to Tomb Raider 2.Also,you didn't need to say 'the protaginist,Lara' Just had to say 'Lara'.Everyone knows she is the main character.This is another new buzzword like 'IP' isn't it? Sigh,modern journalism.

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...

I'm guessing they mean underwater because she swims in the first demo they showed off :P

A stonking 10 hour campaign that can be replayable through different outcomes sounds good to me.

This one is very high on my Must Have List!

Where have people got the idea this is an open world game?

Unless I'm mistaken, haven't they already said it's linear but with some open hub type sections to mix things up?

That passes my "No more than 2 quid per hour of gameplay" test. Pre-ordred it for €26 on PC on sale.

12 hours mwah, cry, sniff blah blah f**king blah. When oh when did we start buying games solely on the premise of how long they are?????? Negates a few things, ahem, as follows;

Multiple endings?
Co-op?
General replay value?
Difficulty levels?
Multiplayer?
Is it good?

Wait for a review perhaps?

I'm pretty disappointed by that tbh, I was expecting it to be closer to 20 hours long and, like someone mentioned earlier, if it's the devs themselves who are saying 12-15 hours, realistically you could probably knock a few hours off that. Still, if it turns out to be 10 high quality hours, I won't complain too much.
