If you're the kind of gamer who doesn't have time to appreciate the game and likes when most of everything is right there so you don't have to spend time trying to figure things out, you'll probably like the new Tomb Raider from Crystal Dynamics, which has a lot in common with Naughty Dog's Uncharted.
Only SP picked up on a community Q&A between gamers and Crystal Dynamics global brand director, Karl Stewart, who took to twitter to answer questions regarding the upcoming Tomb Raider game for Xbox 360 and PS3.
The game will be approximately 12-15 hours long. Lara will regenerate health just like Call of Duty so you won't have to worry about actually trying to survive in this survival game. Also, Lara can swim but she can't swim in this game. I imagine most of the water sequences will take place as quick-time events as opposed to, well, letting the player swim.
The length of the game seems about fine and Stewart states that the time may vary depending on play-style, which probably means casuals will may take 15 hours and core gamers will blast through in 6 - 8 hours.
As noted many times before, the game is focused on more storytelling than gameplay so presumably fans of Uncharted will be drawn to the title.
If you were hoping for a story-oriented version of DayZ, ZombiU or Survival Kids, or a game designed in a similar vein to The Last of Us...think again.
Still, what do you think of the changes for the game and does it make you more or less excited about this Tomb Raider reboot?
