I got my 100% done. Started my 2nd play and got 2 of the 3 achievements I'm missing (the 25 counter knockdowns and the rope pull 5 enemies ones). Just got to

so I'm getting close to getting chatterbox. Then onto the boosting with a friend.

You're free to go back and find all the collectibles after finishing the story, right?

Yeah you are. It is quite easy though since you can find a map for each area that will show where each is located. Some of the GPS caches can be a pita but thankfully you can mark those and when you go into survival instinct they light up bright ass blue. :D

I must say that this game is as good as it is going to get visual wise on the 360. Honestly I would not have mind if they pushed this to the PS4/720 ... that's probably where the sequel is going to be.

Hopefully it won't take 6 years to arrive either. It is amazing to me that although highly modified Tomb Raider is running the same engine Underworld was made on.

That's both really quite impressive and disappointing at the same time... Impressive because the game is absolute beautiful. Disappointing because they obviously could have made a proper Tomb Raider game and not this. Don't get me wrong this TR is a decent game, I don't find it to be nearly as impressive as others have, but the big issues with TR have always been the camera, the combat, and the lack of people for Lara to interact with. This solved all of them quite nicely but pretty much abandoned its soul in the process. as the “Tomb Raiding” in this game is a slap in the face with its simplicity.

Anyhow, I haven't tried the MP and sadly I got it for the PS3* but it looks like most of them aren't going to give the MP an honest try... :cry:

Yup. I haven't actually seen sales for this game but I imagine they are very good. Like Far Cry 3 I'm sure they're going to get the sequel moving right away.

My only gripe with the game is the Tombs. They were nothing short of a joke and didn't require much thought. Hopefully they get some feedback and if they do more SP DLC, that they make more challenging tombs.

Also anyone else find it funny that when you completed a tomb that is says "Tomb Raided" :lol:

This is a reboot to draw in new fans. Simpler is better in that regard. They can always get grander in the next one.

Also the way they designed the game, the fact that the tombs are skippable is great. That way they can get more complex as the series goes on and it won't scare away people without the brainpower to pass them. Even people that love the complex puzzles won't hit a brick wall that you can't pass to advance the story, you can always come back to it later.

Mostly I find it annoying and a slap in the face to long term fans... but if I think about just how easy the puzzles are I guess I could let a chuckle out at they're over excitement in completing them.

This is a reboot to draw in new fans. Simpler is better in that regard. They can always get grander in the next one.


As you point out they are optional and in this day and age even the most complex puzzle could easily be solved with youtube... So their really was no reason to do anything less than grand other than CD/SE deciding that people don't want elaborate/complex puzzles anymore and instead would rather have combat every 5 minutes.

This TR got the same issues as RE and/or Dead Space series... They are removing their unique elements in favor of drawing, hopefully drawing that is, a bigger audience... I doubt we will see something more grand in the next TR game.

If the sales are there CD/SE will follow the same path we have in this TR... Lots of gunplay and easy puzzles and if the sales aren't there (which I'm not expecting, I think the game will sale well) than they'll decide that their isn't enough interest in TR and shelve the series for awhile.

I can’t say that their in the wrong here... Even the Uncharted games, which have always been lighter on puzzles than TR, have become even more lighter on puzzles as the series has gone on... So maybe their isn't a market for an Action Puzzle game anymore... but I would have been happier to have seen them give it a real try, even the best modern TR game, TR: Legends still had serious camera issues and well, rather weak gun play... If they had fixed those and it still didn't sale well enough I would be more accepting of the changes...

As is I still enjoyed the game enough to be glad I got it... but I don't really look at as a real Tomb Raider game.

So the "numbers" are out on US and UK sales for 1st week.

Across all platforms.

US 420,000
UK 252,000

For Comparison 1st week sales

Crysis 3
US 220,000
UK 40,000

Dead Space 3
US 386,000
UK 61,000

And sadly

Aliens:CM
US 353,000
UK 92,000

So it looks like a good start for TR. Hopefully the UK numbers mean Europe as a whole will be good.

I just looked at the Far Cry 3 first week numbers and it looks TR is on par with those sales. FC3 hit about 4 million worldwide as of now and the sequel is a go. Hopefully we see the same trend for TR.

1st Week All Platforms

Worldwide 795,000 (PS3 628,000, 360 167,000)
US 285,000
Europe 110,000
Japan 319,000 (pretty much 100% PS3)


I am using vgchartz which I know is sort of a soft way to get numbers but I think in the end they are pretty close.

http://www.vgchartz....y/41329/Global/

It looks like it is over 1 million worldwide now.

wow, if the alien colonial marines sales # are anyway close to accurate to what you just posted. That is considered pretty good for that mess. I guess all the alien fanboys turn out in full force. LOL I smell another "reboot" of the alien game in 5-10 years.

They are close I think. It dropped so hard the following weeks though that both Crysis 3, Dead Space 3, and MGR :Revengence outsold it for Feb even with one less week for Cysis and MGR.

NPD Feb

  • Dead Space 3 (360, PS3, PC)
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops II (360, PS3, Wii U, PC)**
  • Crysis 3 (360, PS3, PC)
  • NBA 2K13 (360, PS3, Wii, Wii U, PSP, PC)**
  • Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PS3, 360)**
  • Aliens: Colonial Marines 2013 (360, PS3, PC)**
  • Just Dance 4 (Wii, 360, PS3, Wii U)
  • Far Cry 3 (360, PS3, PC)
  • Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (PS3, PSV)
  • Madden NFL 13 (360, PS3, Wii, PSV, Wii U)

Pretty crazy Madden still top 10.

So lets take the best part of the game and not do anything with that. At least I won't be complaining they held anything back in the SP. What you got on Day 1 is what they envisioned as the story. I am not against MP for the game but if they continue with it going forward it needs a lot of work.

So Global week 1 sales have been updated. Looks like 1.1 million units sold across all 3 platforms worldwide. Not a bad start considering lifetime sales of the last Tomb Raider game (Underworld) is only 2.8 million.

After the three games of MP I finished I can't see what anyone would enjoy out of that. It's playable but brings absolutely nothing new to the table.

I think it is just that MP DLC is easier to develope than single play items.

Single player DLC would be awesome, but on the other hand, I think of the devs devoting their time to creating a next-gen sequel instead, and... damn.

Yeah, I haven't done it yet but if the value holds for the week I'll likely trade my copy in on the weekend. Tuth be told there's no reason to keep it around and if I can cost SE/CD a handful of dollars by someone buying my used copy I will gladly do so. (Maybe next time they do some decent tombs.)
