Dear Abandoneers,

I just bought this game on the internet :whistle:

For the first moments of time i was really happy, Lara looked better, the graphics were doing there thing and the atmosphere was amazing good!

But most of all: The gameplay was going smooth and comfortabel...


But now we has past and week and the game is still very cool to play and the atmoshphere is getting better and better where it reach his top at the England levels (looking for King Arthur)

Only after 8 days i just reached the end of the game (playing on Hard mode) and that was all...i completly discovered the Maison (hard to find the last golden Piece..) and found out all the secrets there.

Now i got a complete score of %95 after only 1 time playing..

I think that makes the game way too short for 45 or more...we should has at least more levels then 7 (real levels...not including the last end boss) and some more special things to look for when you has complete the game...

Like that you can go outside the house (as in 2 and 3) and find something special like a cross bike...

Now i dont like to play all the levels again to find that golden piece (so far only founded in England and the maison) and a few silver/bronce pieces...and with only reward some new clothes (who are looking good BTW)


So far my short opinion on the game but please let me hear yours....(someone sees a album name in it??)

Ps. the rides on the bikes were terrible...but that was so short that i wont complain too much about it....


Regards,

Wormpaul

Well, if you actually paid that amount of money, I can see how you might feel a bit let down by the length of the game. Next time buy your games cheaper from places like play.com

If it took you 8 days to finish the game, it doesn't sound like too bad, though still less than I would like it too.

Have you tried the Indiana Jones games released 1-2 years ago? Very good, similar to Tomb Raider (the good parts, though no boobs), and with an IMO excellent fighting and exploring gameplay.

I am looking forward on buying Tomb Raider Legends sometime this summer.

Hmm...

maybe for nowdays 8 days is pretty long but i was used to play games like:

Heroes of might and magic

Dungeon Siege

Warcraft 3


And those games got such a high replay value that it didnt felt out so hard when you completed the game the first time...

But i almost never play straight action games (except shooters online and GTA games) but it sounds like that more games of that genre got the same play time because in none of the reviews of the internet i read about the short time play...

Maybe i just need to be realistic, gamers of these days doesnt have the patience to play weeks the same game?? (or is that a totally other discussion )

Producers nowadays rarely care for gameplay as much as they do for GFX. Just check that out - almost every new game has some snazzy new bling-bling graphic effects, but most of them are at the same time sorely lacking in actual gameplay.

Oblivion is such a game that should be a long playable..

As i read in the reviews because i has never played it....

But if that also feels shorter we got a real problem with the games of this generation... :ranting: :ranting:

HOMM of course it can be longer, there are "skirmishes" right? FFS, you can play this game for ever LOL. Not fair to compare it with TRL.

Dungeon Siege...hmm, leaving aside that it is a RPG, thus again not the type of game that TRL is, I reached half the game in about 1 day of gaming, so, I am not sure how it is longer that 8 days...Never finished it though so...

I rented it for the PS2, and I'm pretty sure I'm at least three quarters through the game, and I've only had it for 5 days, it is pretty short, but compare that to God Of War which I beat in two days (at least it had lots of unlockables) or Metal Gear Solid 3, you can beat that in one day if you skip all the cinematics and etc.

LOL...

Dungeon Siege took me at least 20 hours to reach halfway the 3 act...(and that is for me around 2 weeks) and then ill gave up because of the bority...

But it looks like that my 8 days for TRL were also slow...but still way too fast for me


But other people:

Someone already reached the 100% score without cheating/walktrough??
