who thinks that the tomb raider games has got shorter.
The levels are easy in TRL TRA so you can finish the game just like blinking a eye.
I was flying to Spain from Iceland and i finished TRL in 2 and a half hour in, hard the old games are longer, better and harder.
Tell me what you think:D

I definatly think that the older games are more challenging, but i dont think anniversary is easy. I was stuck running around and getting killed in damoclis in st francis folly :rasp: But, everyones different ;)

I haven't played any of the old games although I have the Chronicles for my old dreamcast but I quit playing it because the controls were just awful. I think Legend is very short yes and easy too. Anniversary isn't short but could be longer :D I don't think it was very difficult but it was more than Legend was. I like both but I prefer Legend - don't ask me why :scratch:

I just hope Underworld will be longer :D

It makes me laugh that you should say this because I hate the new ones. I think the old controls were very intuitive and once you learned them, they became incredibly instinctive. Give them a chance, I say.

I agree on that; the longer, the better-lasting, the better.

Well may be I have to give a chance to it :D I think I dropped too soon :D
I have to try it again ;)

ALL single player games these days are shorter than they used to be, In fact Anniversary is pretty lengthy for a 2007 game, and I believe it is all the fault the best grafics race. Because the high standards in grafics these days, it takes a 60 men crew to make a game that is 4 times shorter than a game that was made 10 years ago by a 6 men team. It also takes way more time and money to make the game and therefore it has to appeal to a large group of mainstream gamers if they want to make a profit, or it would be committing financial suicide. So don't think that Tomb Raider has changed radically because Crystal D is evil or out of there minds, its simply how it works in the business these days.

A very astute observation. It's true; more success makes it harder for a franchise to remain good. It's the sad truth. :(

Older games are harder for sure but it's because they have bad graphics and it's harder to find a way.

You have to take the times into account, love. Even the Last Revelation is still very impressive graphically.
