    The game looks great also the only thing that has from Tomb Raider is the name, it looks more like Uncharted meets Tenchu.

    This lady certainly is getting proper mashed up.

    inb4 feminazis claim this whole game is just one long male sadomasochistic fantasy.

    They already did this since the trailer showed up last year. Even guys are calling this out a misogynist game.

    It's so ridiculous, I don't get offended when I see a male protagonist get all fucked up like in the trailers for "The Last Of Us", the point is the reality of being a hero is that you do have to go through some hardships, and if feminists want a strong female lead character then she's going to have to go through the same trials and tribulations, otherwise it's soft and unrealistic.

    I suppose they want to go back to the old BOOBIE RAIDER: ADVENTURES IN REVEALING CLOTHING games which weren't at all misogynistic.

    Funny since one developer/designer in Crystal Dynamics reportedly self-inserted her younger self in the new Lara

    Here's the thing: the violence in this game is nowhere near equal to games starring men. Jason Brody from Far Cry 3 doesn't get dragged around by his ankles by pirates. Nathan Drake doesn't have every death scene in Uncharted shot the way one would shoot a porno. The camera doesn't lovingly pan up to Niko Bellic's crotch bulge when he dies in GTA IV. There's certain stuff that "equality" doesn't cover. If Lara was just pulling the occasional bullet out of her arm or shit like that, then it'd be fine but a Tomb Raider game shouldn't be giving me flashbacks to The Condemned.

    Lara was sexualized in the older games, but going from one extreme to another, less pleasant one isn't progress.

    Again, go play any of the games I mentioned and tell me this is equal to what your average unstoppable male hero goes through. I can wait.

    From what I'm seeing the shots aren't sexualizing her at all in the death scenes, they are just showing it in a brutal way. If you want games to compare it to look at any of Leon Kennedy's death scenes in Resident Evil 4, or Chris Redfield's deaths in Resident Evil 5, or Isaac Clarke's deaths in any of the Dead Space games, or what about when Marcus Fenix explodes into a million little meat chunks if you fuck up in Gears of War. They all adopt the same technique of pausing and showing your main character get viscerally arse-bombed by the bad guys because that ups the stakes and makes the fear of pressing the wrong button at the wrong time that much greater.

    This is the style of death scenes they wanted to use in this Tomb Raider game, and it works well, but because it's happening to a woman you and every other reactionary ballbag out there project onto it heaps and heaps of non-existent sexuality and hate for women.

    Don't even try to lump me in with fucking feminists. You don't know me, bitch. Truth be told, a lot of the deaths don't bother me. It's just that a lot of them come off too... well, rapey for my tastes, and it makes me feel uncomfortable. And yeah, I don't tend to get that vibe when Leon Kennedy gets his head chopped off. But I don't get it when Ada dies either, so you can't claim I'm biased.

    Its a great game most of it, great way to refresh the franchise unlike RE6, still some details they need to correct if they want to release a sequel for this which is a possibility considering the reviews and sales, like I said just some details like the fucking trembling camera, also the abuse of QTE is really annoying, the game is too easy even in hard difficulty I guess they wont change so its k.

    What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

    I tried Tomb Raider 2013 but got bored after 2-3 hours of gameplay. Storyline itself feels too much rushed, I thought this game would be surviving in an hostile natural island (and discovering TOMBS because it is called TOMB RAIDER you know?) rather than being already chased by russian commandos in the beginning. QTEs are all over the place and I hate the new Lara with her constant moans. Seriously, it sounds like a fucking porn if I just close my eyes.

    Devs went full retard about her origins too, they wanted to make a character who want to make FRIENDS, and doesn't like to kill (though they fucked up that last point since she basically kill every russian at the second hour of gaming). I would have liked the game more if the devs did give the possibility to be stealthy instead, like in Deus Ex: HR.
