I'm just waiting till mid summer to pick this one up. Sounds fun, but I like to give most games plenty of time to patch up mistakes and bugs. Didn't think Tomb Raider would have something like that though. Sorry about, and I'm sure most of us have felt your pain at some point in our gaming endeavors.
For 2013 I have completed a few game on the Xbox 360:
DMC: Devil May Cry
Dead Space 3
Metal Gear Rising
Tomb Raider was the latest game I've been playing. I was enjoying the game a lot and I do mean A LOT! I haven't enjoyed a third person action game like this in a long time...then all of a sudden bam! I was hit with a f*cking game breaking glitch almost to the end of the game. The glitch hit me at the Chasm Stronghold, where the enemies refused to spawn and I cannot progress. I did quite a bit of searching for a solution and nothing is possible (unless a patch is released). It seemed to affect all console and PC versions of the game. After cursing very loud today and getting in a rage. I am calmly going to toss this game aside and start Crysis 3!...shame this game could have been a firm contender for GOTY 2013 for me
I'm going to rent Tomb Raider next week....After all the previous TR games. I'm not giving up on Lara, being a TR fan since the good old PS1 days. Proble is that almost all of the previous games were awful.
Never encountered that one. I did encounter one where I jumped on a cage to lower it and I sank through the floor, died and got a black screen of death. :?
@JustPlainLucas Hope u don't get the one I did, cause you wouldn't be able to progress or backtrack
@Soulreavercross @JustPlainLucas I've already finished it, so no worries. I did, however, notice a couple of stalls, like it had to wait a minute or two before more enemies started coming, and there's a part near the end when you're trying to get up to the top while Mathias is performing the ritual and the camera zooms in to an icy ledge, and you're like, "Now what?" Somehow, I died trying to figure out what to do and when it reloaded, the camera put me at that same angle, and then lightning struck, knocking off ice sheets exposing a wall I could anchor to.
Oh my gosh! I am so very sorry to hear that because it is a fantastic game! I was so blown away by it, being I was alot more critical than others because of my love for the Tomb Raider series. I do know that Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix are really listening to any and all complaints right now and working on a patch for a couple things that have already been brought to their attention. Maybe you could go to their site and hopefully they will get enough complaints to fix that one too. :)
