I think that gameplay would feel too dated to enjoy. Remaster looks nice though.

The gameplay felt dated even when they came out. I could never get past the awful controls of those early games.

I watched my friend play a little of one of them back in like middle school or so.

My only experience with playing any of them is I bought the PSP version of the first game digitally on my Vita. It played pretty badly though so I didnít really get very far.

I enjoyed the first reboot game. Havenít played the sequels though.

This is great and all (I never played them) but just give me a new next Gen Tomb Raider. We're 5 years removed form the last one and 3 years into "next-gen." It's time.

*yes I know they said they're working on it.

I like the old Tomb Raiders. They're quiet, mildly entrancing games past the goofy boobage back in the day.

Didn't they do a full remake of the original back on the 360?

Yeah, I have it on PS2. It's both a remake of the original and a prequel to Tomb Raider: Legend.

They mentioned that it would include all expansions. It's been so long since my PS1 days so I don't remember, but how did expansions even work since there was no online back then?

*edit* nevermind, found out expansions were only a thing for pc.

Anyone else pick this up? Even with modern controls I'm still struggling to play. Graphics are nice tho and the ability to switch back and forth on the fly is cool.

I played through a bit last night. Just trying to get used to the controls while running around Laura's house was difficult. Going to take some getting used to.

That was the same issue when I tried to play it on Vita back in the day. Not sure if the first game just has wonky controls or what.

They were always clunky, but it was an early 3d platformer so we didn't know better.

I mean Iíve played a bunch of PS1 and N64 era games. I grew up with both consoles. To me Tomb Raider has to be one of the clunkiest games Iíve tried to play.

You guys playing with the old tank controls or the modern ones?
I can't bring myself to suffer through tank, so have been playing modern. The fucking camera is killing me. Certain positions you get in you cant see where you need to go for the jump and sometimes it starts reversing the controls on you which is infuriating. I hope they can improve it through patches.

The added modern movement control but didn't change the static camera angles? Yikes.

Yeah im playing with modern, but the camera goes crazy and some of the jumps still feel like they are on a grid, so you just miss them. Hoping for some patching.

Heres a good write up:

Aspyr is already working on a patch for Tomb Raider I-III: Remastered, "a lot of issues will be addressed"
