This game has sketchy controls and poor mission instructions. Easy to get Bored and play an old game again.

Summary: Controls terrible. No direction for mission. Ledges and treasures not clearly highlighted. 3D map is rather useless and does not reveal treasures or objectives. Character animation of LC is too cartoony and too AngelinaJolieish. It is easy to get stuck in an area and get bored. Graphics are OK.
Summary: How fitting that 2008, the year that Lara Croft reached her lowest point, is also the year that gave us Nathan Drake, a far more appealing and engaging treasure hunter/adventurer. The styles of the franchises have oft been compared, but where Lara breaks down and fails Nathan Drake excels.
Summary: This game takes one step forward and two giant leaps back. I'll get the positive things out of the way first, the grappling hook behaves much better than previous games, the graphics are quite good (when still) and there are some genuinely clever puzzles to be solved. Now for the bad stuff...
Fun at first but due to lack of clarity very irritating

Summary: The story of this installment of the Tomb Raider series is not terrible, but comes to an extremely unsatisfying conclusion. The levels are at first intriguing given their almost open world feel, but then, as the game progesses and the puzzles try ( I cannot say become because they did not for me) to...
Summary: This is one tired gameplay. It is time for Lara to retire. I could not finish the game, just not fun at all.
Pros: The graphics are quite good. Good enviromental details and I liked the fact you could choose how you were going to outfit Lara.
Cons: As most others, the camera angles were just plain horrible. The "freedom" involved in gameplay could let you just wander aimlessly without keeping you on target. The 3rd person shooter aspect is just plain boring.
Summary: The game is wonderful, when it works. It is plagued by constant bugs and glitches, many a time rendering your game unplayable, and having to restart a level completely. I have gotten stuck without possibility of a fix twice now, and promptly returning the game back to GameFly.
