I'm told that the similarities to Uncharted is pretty obvious. But on the other hand, Uncharted kind of started off as a Tomb Raider clone. I think they were jokingly calling it Dude Raider (which isn't a good name for a game and probably better suited to other.... entertainment.).

That's a very good point that I am always forgetting. I'm being sincere though. Everything I hate about Uncharted is largely absent from this game leaving only the good stuff. This is a game I've been wanting to replay since the first time I finished it.

I'm going to try to make time for this one.  I've been meaning to revisit this game via the Definitive Edition on PS4 ever since it was given to me by a friend.  My hands are already tied with Paper Mario, so we'll see how that goes.

I'm teetering on playing this game. I was never a fan of the PSX games and sort of stopped playing the series after TR2. I think the rough controls and camera angles were what ultimately drove me away. However, I know that this more modern game will be totally different and more polished. It would be kind of neat to get the Lara Croft backstory. Like Disposed, I need to sink some time into Paper Mario........ugh, decisions.

Count me in. The German voice of Lara is done by my favourite actress back then Nora Tschirner, so I am excited to play my first Tomb Raider game.

I think I like the German voice over better.

Just found out Lara Croft was an archeologist. I can dig that  Cool. Always thought she was one of those rare cultural artefact thieves.
