Maybe it was just me, but the cars all seemed to control differently. Like the that huge track accelerated mad slow and plowed through everything while that little muscle-car-look-a-like was fast and light. As for aiming, yea, it's pretty much taken straight from the newest Tomb Raider game. Run and gun, I like to call it.


Blech, kind of turns me off getting the new TR if that's the case. The old aiming and shooting system wasn't the best but it worked and it at least felt responsive.

All of the cars felt more or less the same to me. Then again, there wasn't much to feel aside from a few rumbles from the controller every now and again. Even the motorbike didn't feel any different than the cars. Probably the only thing I noticed is that it's easier to go offroading with the Prototype than any other car I've stolen so far.

I also remember some weird ass glitches happening where I'd have a jeep or police SUV and I'd go plowing into a line of those striped yellow wooden roadblocks at full speed and the car would just crash into it and not even go through. That must've happened to me 3 times already while trying to get away from cops. It's more annoying than the glitch where the car disappears after I start the second mission.

And grouse all you want but as far as I care, the GTA car controls (maybe even the very first Driver game but I haven't played it in a long time) are the tightest I've ever played with out of all those open world free roam games out there. I already know how much you don't agree but graphical inferiority aside, the controls just plain feel the best to me. I can really feel the speed and handling differences between sports cars, basic sedans, and huge tanker-like vehicles on the different surfaces and I just haven't had the same experience with any other game yet. The only vehicles I like more in JC over GTA so far are the boats.

Most games do come with harder difficulty settings, but for all I know that could just make bullets come at you faster and do more damage. It would have been nice to see them try to duck or cover, but then again the AI in Tomb Raider was never that special.


Don't have the new TR so can't compare, I just know that the enemies from 1-4 & Chronicles at least gave me some problems and made me try harder to stay alive. There was no real urgency or need for me to at least attempt to keep myself alive because I could just run past everyone, as slow as Rico moves, and barely take a hint of damage or even have them really bother shooting at me. I know it's just a demo, but jeez...I really hope they just gave us the "Very Easy" version or something.

Edit: You like the music as much as me?


*shrug* didn't really notice the audio in general during the gameplay. I remember some cheerful island music, that's about it. I also remember hearing Rico speak one line out of 4 or 5 playthroughs and thinking "the f*** was that noise?" I didn't even realize he could talk.

What about the Helicopter? The one in GTA was horrendous. In JC I can practically dodge missiles because the controls are so tight.

Yea, I have yet to die from being shot to death, rather then me blowing myself up accidentally.

Yup yup, they all release the same day.

I just remembered that you can call in heavy drops (not in the demo, though) so that should rectify the thing about Rico moving slow as dirt. I wish jumping would be a little more responsive, though. He doesn't always jump as soon as I hit the button leading to some misses when trying to get on or over some things (on foot I mean, it's fine when pulling off stunts).

And the new fun thing for me to do....throw a grenade and shoot it in midair.

The helicopter controls are annoying in most GTA games but they allow you to strafe enemies in the air, which I like and always feel is, well, somewhat vital as far as helicopter controls go. You can't really do that in JC as the joystick is your acceleration AND turn. But overall the heli controls are easy as hell. One of the helicopters, can't remember what the name was, controls pretty horribly, though. Luckily I hardly ever run into it while playing the demo anymore, the rest are all fine.

The triggers do allow you to go up and down fairly quick you know. And why wouldn't you want to be going full-speed at all times? Just push the stick forward and turn when necessary. Being a pilot never seemed so easy.

Ah yes, and don't forget to leave the game at the demo menu. You'll be treated to a nice video featuring tanks and a pink monster truck. ^o^

But I don't have a problem with changing my altitude...nor do I have a problem with turning or accelerating. I don't have a problem flying, I just wish the helicopter could strafe, which it kind of can't. That's probably why the idiots that chase me in helicopters when I go up the mountain are constantly crashing into it while trying to turn and gun me down.

It's more like slow-motion strafing.
