looks just as crap to me graphically compared to the ps1.
now graphics dont really matter but they can help to an extent, but to me its the gameplay. the original was amazing at the time but now with prince of persia domianting this genre, they should've done ages ago, what the PoP series has done, and its looks like they're just starting to. already i see pole jumping and swinging etc which they took from the PoP series which gets on my nerves a bit as i love the PoP games. what they need is solid gameplay. forget ps2 crap, release it next gen if they want updated graphics or even new gen if they want to freshen things up proper. (any hardcore gamer will know which console I mean)
they need to do what it sez on the tin. TOMB RAIDER!!!
Legends had you with machine guns rocket launchers chasing trains going off road junk & whatever. ok, decent game, but not TOMB RAIDER. fair enough, keep the arsenal of weapons, fine, but why be shooting humans? thats just plain old dumb. I imagine a Tomb Raider game where you have to climb a rock face using a combo of buttons, or motions on the Wii, just to get to where you need to go. creatures that no one new existed, locked in a tomb forever, built to protect the treasure by an ancient civilisation etc. swing on vines in an under ground jungle over a massive waterfall to get to an unsturdy bridge and to get of the bridge without ploughing to the lake below, you gotta get those combonations going again. to swim, rotate them analogues to swim fast away from crocs. even jump on their heads with combi buttons to cross the river etc. SOOOOOOoooo many possibilities and yet they use the same old game? if i want to play the old school, game, i'd play the old school game, no point wasting my money and just a slighty updated rehash which still may very well lose its charm.
anyhoo, i'm gonna stop here cuz i can go on forever.
