    I was a huge fan of TR: Legend and Anniversary, and I'm really looking forward to TR: Underworld.

    The only thing that bothered me about the demo was the clunky camera. Sometimes you can't even see where you're about to jump.

    ^ I had that same problem and so did many others, it's not that bad though. If you leave the camera alone, it'll fix itself and show you where to jump.
    Definitely. This game takes place right after Legend and will answer the questions it left, it'll also have some connection to Anniversary, but you don't need to play that in order to understand the story (it'd probably help though) as there'll be a recap video to watch in the extras menu.

    Hahaha really good, my man....you? :up:
    Just debating which games I'll be getting.
    I think I'm gonna go with CoD:WaW and TR: Underworld.
    I'll be getting Mirror's Edge when it becomes cheaper, since it's a short and strictly single player affair.

    Can you take pics of her posability and stuff outside the package? I've been thinking about picking her up but she looks like she's in kind of a meh pose.

    I played the demo and kind of liked it. I'm wary of all the control changes and sprinting and all that junk. The older TR games started to go downhill real fast when they strayed from that basic control formula of the first couple games. In addition, Lara felt sort of... weird to me. Bouncier than in Legend or Anniversary or any prior TR game. Anybody else know what I'm talking about?

    I felt the bounciness was toned down from TR: Legend.....her movements seem a little stiffer to me....

    That looks pretty sweet. I'm glad they're embracing the idea of changing Lara's clothes to match her environment again. I remember playing through Anniversary and right from the start, seeing Lara run around the frozen tomb area at the beginning in a sleeveless shirt and short shorts made me roll my eyes.

    Anyway, so long as the gameplay is nice and smooth and there aren't any quicktime events, I'm sure I'll enjoy this TR game like I've enjoyed most of the previous ones. Plus, this one's got Norse mythology. :up:

    you know, like when there's a story and half way through you have to hit X or you're fighting a boss and then you have to hit certain buttons as they pop on screen, like in God of War for example

    I hate those. I hate pretty much anything that doesn't let me fully control the character. They're a lame attempt to excuse uninteractive cinematic sequences by forcing a really clunky, terrible method of interaction into them. God of War is basically the only thing that's ever done them well.

    me neither and I have a feeling there will be some, it's becoming sort of a staple in action games, but who knows.

    you control freak you.....:oldrazz:.....If I didn't know any better, I'd say you didn't like them because you can't hit the buttons fast enough....

    I hate them because they're ill-conceived pieces of crap that pull me completely out of the game. I can hit the buttons just fine, I just don't think I should have to.

    Well, I mean, do you even really like them, or do you just tolerate them? Even if they're not terrible or obtrusive to you, I can't imagine how they really contribute anything to the game or the gameplay experience.
