and I'm only like 90 minutes in. And don't get me wrong, I actually enjoy the game (well, what i've seen so far) but....seriously? WHO WROTE THIS?
Mild spoiler alert, if you already fought some wolves you are good to go otherwise...well it's not really a spoiler but whatever. You have been warned.
So to summarise : After shipwrecking on some lonely island in the middle of nowhere Lara is (immediately) split up from her group for at least...12 hours I guess, maybe more? The last time they saw here was, when she fell into the ocean. Then (after some shenanigans) through a magical tunnel that leads her STRAIGHT to the other group (seriously, that tunnel starts like 5 meters away from Lara's first camp and leads directly to the camp of her friends, but whatever that's not the problem) she finally encounters what I guess is supposed to be her best friend, and how does Sam react?
"Oh Lara. You made it...*yawn*" Oh wow, no Sam please. Stop being so overjoyed. No, don't stand up, just sit down and don't ask me where I've been or why I'm bleeding. No, please don't tell me what happened to you either or where the rest of the group is, this weird creepy old man you somehow found somewhere on this island wants to hear some stupid myth you like to tell. Please go ahead, I'm just going to collapse a bit, no need to worry.
This scene....oh god this scene. And I'm normally not even somebody who cares about plotholes or stuff like that in games but wow, is this bad. She seems as excited to see Lara as a kindergardener discovering that his mum made him a sandwich, and the same goes for Lara herself. Nothing here makes sense, and it's just baffling. Where is the rest of the group, why did they leave you behind with this creepy old man?
As I said, the gameplay is enjoyable and obviously that's the most important thing but please tell me the writting gets a bit better latter on. This is just....amateurish...
PS: It's 5 in the morning here, so please excuse my sloppy spelling
