"After three hours playing the game, it's clear that no expense has been spared on this reinvention of the action-adventure series and its iconic heroine Lara Croft. No trend has been left unfollowed, either. Tomb Raider is an exhaustively complete collection of fashions in contemporary blockbuster game-making." - Eurogamer.com

Tomb Raider explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold. Download the Turning Point trailer to see the beginning of Lara’s epic adventure.
Smart / Resourceful Lara:
Lara must use her brawn and her brains to overcome an impossible situation. The player must guide Lara through physics puzzles, challenging environments, and a high-octane story to overcome a harrowing situation and make it off of the island alive.
Tomb Raider is pushing the action genre forward with visceral third-person combat and a deep weapon and gear upgrade system that Lara will have to strategically employ to overcome increasingly difficult enemies and environments. If you like the Uncharted or Batman Arkham franchises, Tomb Raider’s offering will compare favorably to these high quality experiences, but with a unique Survival Action twist.
It wouldn’t be Tomb Raider without certain signature elements. In addition to platforming, Lara will have to explore large areas to earn experience points that will upgrade her weapons and gear. One of the key elements of dynamic traversal is the gear gating gameplay loop: over the course of the game, Lara will continually improve her gear and will be able to reach previously inaccessible locations that will allow her to upgrade her gear and weapons even further.

This game had me hooked from start to finish. I managed to finish it in about 2 days, and got a 70% completion rating upon finishing the main story-line after 14 hours. Everything about the game felt fluid and enthralling. As I progressed through the main story-line (I'm not a completionist, I never aim for 100% completion rating) I deviated many times to do optional tombs that were short and sweet. All of the relics, diaries and journal passages had really good voice acting and added to the story-line in a compelling way that I haven't felt in a long time! Get this game!

Tomb Raider is the reboot that wasn't really necessary (just like the multiplayer mode tacked on the game, probably in the later development stages, really wasn't necessary), but it was certainly welcome. This game contributed to the series one of the best possible stories (though by all means not perfect), lots of new gameplay elements and mechanics (including the mighty bow), more nuanced characters and stunning visuals (not that previous games weren't pretty, particularly Underworld) and a solid character arc for Lara, now more humane and relatable than the previous versions, mostly pre 2004. The gameplay is Tomb Raider's most notable strength, with tons of exploration, scavenging and shooting hundreds of fairly intelligent (AI) enemies and some nice puzzles, locations and history lessons too. It's biggest flaw is probably the title. That's because, for all intents and purposes, this is not a Tomb Raider game, just a very well-made semi Uncharted clone, semi AAA title. Not to say that Lara didn't fit well in the pants of Nathan Drake - she did kill lots of people in Tomb Raider ii after all -, but perhaps this is enough of a departure from the traditional style of the series now, isn't it?

A very good game. Good graphics, good story, but a little bit hard for my pc with hair fx active. I recommend this game without any DLC.

As someone who had never played a tomb raider or uncharted game, I was sceptical. I was wrong to be. This game is one of the best games I have ever played both in terms of its story and mechanics. The player has to engage in some problem solving, although if you like, you can lower the difficulty and the game will give you hints. The graphics are amazing and the game runs well on budget hardware. The game has an open world feel to it. The story lasts around 10-12 hours, and there is multiplayer too. In summary, you should buy this game.

I haven't played the other Tomb Raiders because I didn't liked them to be honest. I gave the series a chance by buying Tomb Raider Collection HD for PS3, but I really lost my interest after the first hour of playing. Everything has changed with this 'reboot'. The MC is now great, her movement and voice acting are done as it should. Making the game more realistic was something that the game needed. The crafting is quite interesting and it makes you want to explore more. It's not a perfect game in order to have a 10 from me, but it is close. Maybe a little more polish for the other characters and the game would've been better.
