You're a Croft.SnowQueen | May 24, 2013 | Review of Tomb Raider Steam -
Get use to that saying because you'll be hearing it a lot.
Lara has a firm place in my gaming heart, she's someone I always wanted to be when I was a little girl. Big boobies and all. So I was very excited when I heard they were making a new game. Was I disappointed like some fans were, no, I can't say I was at all.
Strait from the get go poor Lara is put through the ringer, We already seen from the trailer that lovely moment she falls and gets a re-barb through the side for her trouble. Is that the worst of it, 'fraid not. The poor girl gets battered and bruised through the entire game. we see a insecure girl with a golden heart become the Lara croft we all love and admire albeit with a few scratches to go.
The games view over all is stunning, the lighting in points of the game is very well done showing the love the creators put into the island. Lara herself is a stunning creature we see slowly change through the entire game (Her looks that is). As for her hair, well if you have a PC that can handle it you can for sure see the difference with the option on and I would strongly recommend it.
Game play wise the bow is you're friend if you want to play through without getting caught, but otherwise the range of weapons is good, on the harder difficulty ammo is a bit harder to come by but that's to be expected. The story flows well, bringing you and Lara into a world you never thought existed and forcing Lara to think back and see things in a different light.
I would whole heartedly recommend this game if you're a fan of the old/young Lady and would recommend the game to people who like exploration puzzles and story oriantainted game play. It took me about 12hs to complete but that was with a 70-80% complete ratio.
I do hope we see you again Miss Croft, a spot of tea would be lovely with you.
