Lara not under pressure to out-do Drake


There’s no denying that the Tomb Raider franchise and the recent PS3-exclusive Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune have their share of similarities. But directly comparing the two games is unfair to both since, at the end of the day, they’re still two very different games. Both do include a healthy amount of pathfinding, but Uncharted is a lot more focused on the action while Tomb Raider has always been a puzzle/adventure game first and foremost.

But a lot of gamers still fear for some reason that the new Tomb Raider might end up being too similar to Uncharted.

Well fear not. Kathryn Clements, Tomb Raider’s senior brand manager, too admitted that there were similarities between the two games in an interview this week, but said that they’re not feeling like they’re under pressure to out-do Uncharted and that the upcoming Tomb Raider: Underworld “will be very different to Uncharted”.
