Recent Tomb Raider worth buying on sale?

#1 Posted by Deaditelord (20 posts) -

Hello everyone, I was on Steam and noticed that Tomb Raider is on sale for $12.49. Is it worth buying at the price?

Hell Yeah, for 12 bucks you can't go wrong...

Yes, very much so. I've never been a TR fan, but I am really enjoying this one.

I think it is one of the best games made this year Not the best story but man its got some killer gameplay. I don't understand why Patrick or Brad had a problem with it.

Definitely. It'd be my GOTY so far if not for Bioshock and LoU.

Definatly. The worse I have to say about Tomb Raider is dont expect a very consistant characture. But the gameplay is very "Metroid" like in that you get items that you need to use to get by obsticals. I wish they would have gone further.

But I paid full price, whatever that was, and do not regret it. It is also a very good pc "port"

I really really enjoyed it. Got all the single player achievements and most of the multiplayer ones. You made the right choice.

It's like Uncharted 2, only more actiony.

Yeah. It's one of the best games of the year.

While I won't say it's the best game of this year, it certainly is the game i had the most fun with. Playing it bow and melee only was a blast. I highly recommend it.

Yeah I think it's worth it.
(Also the classic Tomb Raiders are on Steam for 44p each :D)

Yeah, but do not expect it to be as good as uncharted 2 though lol.

I just got Tomb Raider (for 360) from redditgifts a couple weeks ago, and beat it over the long 4th of July Weekend. It was an AWESOME game. I think $12 is an amazing deal. I would have paid the $60 it came out at.

I paid 30 and I think it was worth that. Just gift it to yourself when you buy it and don't activate it. If you decide you don't want it I'm sure someone will trade you something for it.

It was worth buying not on sale.

#21 Posted by golguin (4538 posts) -

Yes. I played the game on release day and couldn't put it down. It's GOTY quality for sure.

#22 Posted by jgravitt (2 posts) -

Yeah, it was my favorite this year so far.

This man is wrong. Tomb Raider outdid Uncharted in every way imaginable except for story and writing, which are the game's biggest weak points. And honestly, they aren't even that weak. They're on-par with your average summer blockbuster that takes itself too seriously. The game itself is simply great fun from start-to-finish.

EDIT: Aw, shit, necro'd thread. Oh well. At least I got to bash Uncharted again.

Seriously do people ask if a game is good enough to spend $12.00 on?

Yes, buy it.
