Tomb Raider - Rapture - 03-09-2013

I was getting close to completing it and I was having fun, just a couple of issues with it...

But then... I got struck with a problem I've only ever had happen once before in a game (Similiar thing in Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga, I was around 85% story completion their to), ever. The fucking file got corrupted (70% completion about 6 hours played).

Somehow me blasting one of the Samurai with a shotgun made him disappear and the sound becoming an air pumping, bass, beatbox.
Found out his model was just invisible, killed him and the sound problem persisted. I saved the game, exited out and bam, message saying that the save file was corrupted so everything was reset to defaults. >.>

So... other than needed more polish, pacing was extremely fast (story wise) and poor story (Character to character interactions and dialogue) IMO. Game is alright.

Your opinions?

I haven't played it, but I'm probably gonna but it because it looks cool. I like that kind of adventure games or whatever you could call them. Sorry for the corrupt save file though :c

Tomb Raider is a masterpiece. A very good adventure.
I will post my review when I finished this game.

I'm playing for 15 hours now and completed 60% (never use survival instinct etc.)

That your saves become corrupted may is a problem of steam cloud.

Been watching a guys lets play of it, seems like a really good reboot.

@CorinthianMerchant - What?

I'm glad I bought it in Steam, because I guess in the background the game was constantly saving my data to their Cloud (Didn't lose any progress so I was able to complete the game.). I guess it took awhile for the steam files to sync my computer back up, because I'm happy that my save file was saved when I checked this morning. Although I wouldn't of minded of restarting the game again on Hard and trying the game without using Salvage or increasing my Skills.

RE: Tomb Raider - Googolplex - 03-10-2013

I played 22 hours now and completed 79%.
Tomb Raider is also very good at horror.

RE: Tomb Raider - Arvuti - 03-11-2013

I don't think that Tomb Raider is scary...But it is unsettling, creepy and quite disturbing at times.

One thing though, haha dat hair [Image: iBVaMU41d3WSY.png]

Still an amazing game though.

RE: Tomb Raider - Googolplex - 03-11-2013

Yes, it is not scary, but some locations are extremely disturbing! And that means a lot when playing Silent Hill before.

Tomb Raider has a couple of horror, RPG, shooter and is a very good adventure at all.

It's an excellent reboot to the series, there's much to explore, good puzzles, fantastic environments and technologies. Never saw a game before looking so realistic and you really felt the same like Lara, that means you are immersed.

OK, the cutscenes and QTEs are a break of immersion, but they are not bad and don't ruin this good game.

When you don't use "survival instinct" mode, then Tomb Raider is a whole experience, better than all before.

RE: Tomb Raider - Arvuti - 03-11-2013

QTE's don't really break immersion that much IMO, it's kind of shitty on how in PC version it sometimes doesn't tell what keys to press...But well smashing a button is KIND of being involved with the cutscene, so you won't just be staring motionlessly on how Lara fights some russian guy who is trying to rape her.
