Tomb Raider was all about exploration, puzzles, atmosphere and platforming. The action was just filler till you got to the next major area and puzzle. It also let you do the exploration and never told you anything at all, it was all on the player. The old games also have underwater exploration. Action is the emphasis of the reboot which is a really dumb decision. Here's what's wrong with the reboot:

QTE's
regenerating health
solve puzzle vision
No swimming, on an island surrounded by water. No under water exploration in a f**king Tomb Raider game
multiplayer
cover system
automatic cover system
automatic stealth
shallow RPG elements
No vehicle sections
"I hate Tombs"

It's like there's no spirit of what the game should be at all, why is it even called Tomb Raider? It could have been a brand new IP.

I'd love them to release another game like the old ps1 Tomb Raider games but it just won't happen. They'd be afraid it wouldn't sell enough. It was always going to be more action orientated (which the last 4 or 5 have been anyway) I personally liked the look of it from the start, and It's getting good reviews pretty much across the board so, yeah, I'm looking forward to it.

It is sad that they've gone for the typical set piece action route that's been done loads this gen rather than a classic Tomb Raider full of exploration and puzzles to test the grey matter. :(

It'll be interesting to hear people's thoughts on the game once it's out.
