Good action adventure refresh of the TR series

Wakki | June 23, 2013 | Review of Tomb Raider

This game has a fantastic story, showing how Lara developed into the adventurer we know her to be in previous games. The graphics are good and the story is emotional in places. The environment was a joy to move around in, and the jumps/climbs were smooth. However, the path you need to take can be obvious most of the time; the side quests are much more challenging that the story routes, and that's where you'll have to do most of your thinking. Combat is done in a FPS style, and upgrades to Lara skills are based on experience you get from killing or collecting stuff.

One thing to be aware is that this game has a lot of gore, and Lara can die in many (horrific) ways. While the setting of the game calls for a lot of it, I personally feel it's over the top and doesn't add much to the game. If you're not a fan of this sort of stuff, I recommend you do a bit of research online to see if it's acceptable to you.
