    Downloaded it this morning, just expecting same old same old and im suprised. This is one is actually looking really good, perhaps maybe the best TR game ever IMO. Graphically its a massive leap from the other ones on 360. Has a very Uncharted Drakes Fortune look about it i find. Certainly one of the best looking 360 titles ive ever seen. What does everyone else think?

    Can't wait to download the demo and try it out as I'm a big fan of all Tomb Raider games (though Legend was a bit meh (anniversary was awesome though)).

    But I can't afford a Live subscription so I have to wait until some time next week to download it [​IMG]

    Its a step in the right direction for the series after years of dumbed down versions.

    you basically need to only hold down 1 button to do everything
    where as all the other games you would need hold down about 3

    Who cares?
    I believe that Anniversary had it where she would grab ledges automatically, where you didn't have to hold down a button [​IMG].

    First thing I did was kill all the sharks in sight.
    Then I proceeded to smash my 360 and throw it into the fiery depths of hell.

    Do you find Tomb Raider that agitating? I kinda feel it mildly relaxing to see Laura die an uncountable number of times as she keeps fumbling her jumps.

    the controls are slight clunky, they worked better in anniversary (though I played it on the ps2, dont know if that has anything to do with it...)

    also most anoying part in that game was the swinging wall jump move
    I could never get it right and died like 50 times
