The Tomb Raider 2 fan game is wow!

We've been following the development of Tomb Raider The Dagger of Xian, a Tomb Raider 2 remake by a French fan, for a while, but sadly couldn't manage to download the recent demo as all our attempts to do so remained vain. Thanks to Sdarts, I finally put my hands on the game and, as a long time fan longing for a return to Lara's true roots, I must say I am impressed. First of all, the game looks gorgeous, but more importantly, it brings back Tomb Raider to what it was, a game in which you had to read the environment to figure out where to go, a game where you could die if you failed a jump. The original combat system is also back, which won't please everyone as the wildlife of the demo seems particularly upset with Lara. I really hope the project will be achieved someday and that it won't be shut down because of some copyrights issues. I even think Square-Enix would be well-advised to support the game's developer because this is looking more promising than many of the official remakes we've seen in the past few years.

    GriftGFX But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (2 Hours ago)

    Tinks the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (9 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (9 Hours ago)

    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (9 Hours ago)
