Re: Tomb Raider

Finished the game at 87% complete without making too much effort to find the collectables. Awesome, awesome game.

IMO this programmers who worked on the controls are geniuses. I'm not a fan of jumping puzzles and platforming in general but I don't recall any game where the controls felt this natural and easy to pick up. I did die a bunch of times trying to jump to a platform that was too far away but it was always my fault as opposed to bad game design or poor controls. I can't say that about too many games.

Went through the game with the bow probably 90% of the time and only broke out guns at the end when there were too many enemies. Setting enemies on fire with fire arrows was oh so satisfying.

This game wasn't even on my radar before it came out, but now I'm anxiously looking forward to the sequel.
