Thoughtfully put together, and detailed enough you feel you got a true behind-the-scenes look. The “Final Hours” series is one of the only media products I’ve seen that takes advantage of what tablets can offer, with 360º imagery, reader polls, embedded video, and optional drill-down content. The writing is a bit too gentle, and some hard questions seem to have gone unasked (e.g. I’d like to know what made the team move away from the comically-busty Lara to a realistic model — was it really just a focus group?). Several pages have pixelation issues, which detracts from the experience. Overall, easily worth the $0.99 price tag, even for casual Tomb Raider fans like myself.
Broken Video Links
I really like reading about how games like Tomb Raider were made. The behind the scenes stuff is interesting to watch, and almost makes me appreciate the final game more.
The Final Hours apps are really well put together and well written. However, I've found that most of the "prototype" and "never before seen" videos in this Tomb Raider edition fail to load, even with a working internet connection. Very disappointing! If I were able to view the videos, my rating would easily be five stars.
This has been one of the most interesting looks into a game I've ever had. There's a lot of content here, it's beautiful.
