You know its a great game when you get instructions telling you to "Mash E". There are far too many QTEs and "mash" scenarios in the game. But apart from them I quite enjoyed it. First Croft game I've actually enjoyed playing, never did understand the recent ones though.

QTE's should never be in any game. Ever.

Agreed. They just add nothing to the game for me. Mashing E to open a door, or turn a valve doesnt make me feel more immersed in a game, if anything it pulls me back from it. I could live with a hold E but mashing.... consoles really have to answer for that mechanic some day. That and regenerating health.

I was very close to the greenman deal on this. So, by saying "it's just a bomb", means it's actually very good? I'm not up to speed on all the slang. FC3 was ok, I suppose there's a bit more replay now that enemy checkpoints can be reset, but what's the replay value in TR? (besides multiplayer).

Yeah,it's very good Sadly,You should not replay it at all,it's not an open world,really linear and always a cinematic so no,it's a magic game,you know,those games that you don't forget,that really bring something else,by the story,mostly.For example,assasins creed 3(the parkour system),farcry 3,crysis 1(this one it was graphics,not story -_-),etc...but when it's done ,wait a year before replaying it.For that i prefer farcry 3,but it's not the same thing,i mean,farcry 3 is bigger,and it's more open,i like that.But when a linear game is really well done,like TR,i like.

PS:it is not but it smells like an Ubisoft Montreal game :D

Ubisoft Montreal are awesome.

I'm waiting until they fix the nvidia performance issues before I play this one. It runs like crap on my 590.
