Excellent restart to the franchise

krimhorn | Feb. 20, 2014 | Review of Tomb Raider Game of the Year

It's no secret that I was hesitant about the reboot of Tomb Raider. Comparisons to Uncharted made it seem like it was more about the shooting than about the platforming and puzzles. On the one hand that's correct, there's more shooting and fewer puzzles than most previous games in the series. On the other it's so, so incorrect. This is one of the most well built, presented games that's been made. It's a third person platformer with elements of Metroidvanias. It has a believable progression for Lara from a normal, unskilled college girl to her first steps as the Tomb Raider.

TR was my biggest (pleasant) surprise of last year. Heartily recommended.
