Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness

just got this game and its great... the first few levels are really dark and moody... im up to the fifth level of the Paris section, and ive written walkthrough's for everything previous to where i am now...

you can find them @ Tomb Raider Girl's website

im trying to get them on gamefaqs.com as well, but they require you have a non-Free email address (so NO hotmail or yahoo... that sucks) to register... ah well...

I'm sorry, but I've had enough of this Tomb Raider stuff. Unless this game is completely different, I see no reason to waste my money. Its not so much a series as it is an adventure in marketing: "How many times can we sell the same game?"

Each installment offers nothing more than better and bouncier boobs for Lara Croft...the first one was good, two was OK, but it should've ended there.

still... i find it a refreshing take on the game.

I have to agree with w0rd, the franchise is being done to death, if there was a continuing story ala LoK then I might feel differently, but who am I to complain, the revenues from TR fund LoK.

I don't find TR very engrossing anymore...they were tedious and repetitive...

Bond can never die, and that's just that...

god, the same can be said for bond... the only thing that changes over the years are the actors and the gadgets...

And the plot of the evil guy...

There's at least enough variation to keep them interesting.

If the only variation you require is a better looking body for Lara Croft, then have fun playing the game behind a locked door in your bathroom...

Dude, this TR is supposed to be a lot different than the old ones. They took her out of the caverns and tombs, put her in the city, and framed for murder. Its not suppsedto be a linear game with only one right way through it. Theres even another playable character. So you should actually play the game before you completely count the game out.

good point... divirging paths... interactive charchters... no more infinite pistols (kinda miss those)... gambling... etc... this is a much deeper game than those that have come before.

i read an article about that in the newspaper at work today. it's true that there are different paths to take in the game, and eventually you get to play as some beefy guy. but i think it's reasonable to say there's too much hype about this one. still, it's not a bad game to try out.

so stop being crybabies and just go play it, no one will think you're being too mainstream. what's the matter, too scared that your neighbors might see you playing something that their 8 year old son is enjoying as well? well then, you're a bitch. a Grade-A bitch. Get over it, I'll still consider you cool.

I still need to get Enter the Matrix...that's my priority right now. Maybe I'll check it out, but I might wait until I can get it used...I'll need to see something that makes me more sure about it.

Looking at the screenshots it seems like the game became.. more stealthy in approach? Am I right about that? Anyway, it seems to me like the game have changed enough to want to try it out. Too bad my video card is old and doesn't support hardware TnL...

yeah. apparently now you can sneak around in shadows and dark places instead of running balls out against a swarm of enemies. it would be pretty cool if you could get instant kills by sneaking up on them.
