Having spent most of my weekend and much of last playing Lara Croft Tomb Raider (and still not completely finished), I can honestly say it is AWESOME. Really engaging, great story, fast paced with opportunity to slow down if you want to. I like the mechanics. It’s fun. It’s fun playing a girl too, although I might have more to say about Lara when I finish.
This dude, though, is inexplicable to me. I think he’s supposed to be a New Zealand Maori – judging by his t-shirt and facial features, but he sure doesn’t sound like he’s from any part of New Zealand I know (to paraphrase Gosford Park). Not Maori or Pakeha. And is the Bucks name supposed to be funny? I find him badly thought out and not realized as either a caricature nor the real thing. Couldn’t they have gotten a real Kiwi to voice the part. And maybe put a real jersey on him (not real team, but at least a jersey)?
