Summary: I've been a fan of tomb raider series for along time, played most of them. this one is pretty much at the bottom of my list. It looks good, and its nice that Lara is realistic...and some of the perks they put in like being able to go back and look for relics is a neat idea BUT after playing at least half of this game, it really doesnt feel like a tomb raider game, like the creators didn't know what TR is supposed to be about.
Summary: Ok...I've been playing TR since the first game. I've always been a fan of the action/puzzle combination of the game. But...this one was quite disappointing from a longtime TR player point of view. This game has really nice graphics and there are some very nice improvements to weapons. It will be a very good game for first time TR players. But the puzzles are very simple and easily solved for those of us who are used to the "old ways".
Summary: You gotta be crazy to not love this game. Well, paint me crazy then. Look, I wanted to love Tomb Raider. I really did. Crystal Dynamics did an astonishing job on crafting this origin story for the oft-drooled-over Lara Croft. The wonderful graphics create an environment which alternates between being lush and inviting to haunting and mysterious.
