I'd take it one step further and asked if he played on a CRT tv.

The original 360 Arcade SKU only included composite cables.

Maybe he couldn't even do that and had to go RF on a black and white TV?

Screenshots don't show the jaggies and the low res textures or the poor motion capture work. Screenshots don't show the horrible AI or the generic music. Screenshots don't show the poor game logic or boring gameplay. What about you address those instead of picking out a nice view or two and posting them here to pretend the game is good?

Well the game might have some slighy graphic problems but saying it looks like a last gen game assuming you played it on current gen is going a bit far dont you think? I can agree that the AI can be weird at times but overall it wasn't a big problem for me. I enjoyed the gameplay very much thought. It had lots of interesting little puzzles here and it was very immersive imo and it made me think of what to do at times. Thought one of the major problems i had was the aiming which is pretty bad imo. Overall i personally enjoyed the game but it sucks to hear that you didnt.



It looks very good in carefully made screenshots (as with most games) but it's not Tomb raider. Evil twin is a certified pshycopath.

The level desing is messy, animations lack momentum, music is forgettable, way too many enemies, repetitive 'tombs', autopilot platforming, slow cutscenes, artificial barriers, invisible walls, but ehh, still sorta enjoyable in an always something to do kinda way. Baba Yaga was the best part.



Played on pc. The graphics were the best aspect of the game. Thought everything else was below average.



I couldnt get myself to finish this game either. Im just not a fan of the 3rd person roller coaster style. In saying that, the game looks amazing and the music and sound were above average.

Playing on ps4. Screenshots don't tell the story. Maybe you just don't like my opinion but perhaps my standards are just higher than yours.

I mean, you must be talking GTA5/Super mario galaxy levels of high here or something, right?

Wait.....where did he pretend or even say that the game was good? He just disagreed that the graphics were bad. Heck i disagree with you on that as well. I personally couldn't  get into the game myself.

It's a bad tomb raider game (puzzles are hella awful), but it's defly not ugly. It's also one of the better optimized games i play on pc



I like the game but my main problem with it is that it felt too much like the first one. Everything including the setup of the story and the ending and even the areas and gameplay loop. it all felt like dejavu.
