How do you get it to auto-aim or target? I really need that with the gamepad I'm using. Actually, just auto-target would do for now.

Edit: Nevermind, figured out what I was doing wrong.

LOL, how do you get it to STOP!?!? I could never get her to shoot the target I wanted. She would just randomly target one, not always the best or nearest one.

FYI, I love my Rumblepad 2, but I found this game to be much, much better on keyboard/mouse.

The 1.1 patch is included with the US version as it removes the breast texture files, Eidos wouldn't release the game in the US with the files still in there.

That's really disappointing. I don't mind the nipple patch but a lot of people said they changed more than that and I would have liked at least to be able to see the original content. Oh well, I think it still looks really good so I shouldn't complain. Besides, since I don't have the other version, it's not like I know what I'm missing.

I keep getting an error that says, "Please insert the original disc instead of a backup (1000)."

Wth, the original disc is inserted. I reinstalled and still get the same thing. Anybody else have this problem?

EDIT: Fixed it. I had Oblivion still set in the control panel.

Gameplay was fairly bug free and enjoyable, but was nothing like a Tomb Raider game used to be. There are no difficult puzzles at all. All the movable objects and "puzzle" pieces pulsate with light, and you get these 2 annoying people constantly telling you what to do over voice com, so nothing is left for you to figure out on your own.

The controls are not sluggish like in TR-AOD, but they are so simplified with auto-grabbing ledges, auto targeting everything (the change target function didn't work at all) that the game is basically on auto-pilot for you.

I tried to drag the game out as long as I could to get the most enjoyment I could from it because I loved the old TR games, and still the credits were rolling 6 short hours after I installed the game. Literally. I installed it at 1 pm and it was over at 7 pm the same day.

There are only 6 levels that take from 30 - 50 minutes to complete (without rushing) and 2 others that are little 5 minute, interactive cutscenes more than anything else.

The graphics are nice, but other than that, there's really not much to enjoy. Nothing to explore. No puzzles to solve. the game is basically: 1. Enter room. 2. Move the shiny, pulsating object to the shiny, pulsating spot on the floor. 3. Watch cutscene that ends level. Repeat 5 times and game is over.

I give it 4/10 and that is only because it was mostly bug free and had nice graphics. There is hardly any content, hardly any challenge, and zero replay value. The booby jiggling animation is insulting to my intelligence. The extra costumes useless junk to me and the fact there are more bonus costumes in the game than levels to play speaks volumes about the developers priorities.

Next Gen mode is brutally unplayable on my system and really doesn't look any better to me, just different. So that was just a huge waste of hard drive space to me that could and should have been used for more quality levels than the pathetic 6 the game has.

What a huge disappointment.

Hey Elvin I'm stuck in a certain part of the game. Can I PM you with a question?

Hey Jakup, you use the 360 controller for a gamepad right?

Seems that vibration and the "player 1" part of the ring lights up. I think this is the first game that has that functionality for the PC.

I don't want to nitpick, but looking at the screenshots I'm feeling that texture detail is a bit low, pixel shader effect is a bit high and facial geometry is a bit ****ty... that an s, and h, an i, double t's, and a y.

I am having difficulty trying to programme all the buttons on my joypad especially the camera. I had this in the demo as well. Maybe i should get one of those ps2 joypads.

Or a wired Xbox360 controller. The game works fine with that.
