Substandard Movie, Boring Game.sycomantis1991 | May 15, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
It's barely a game, really. Most of what you control is running and quick-time events. Much of the action is played out as cinematic cutscenes. You get to do some decent problem-solving puzzles, but that's about it. It's an action-platformer with emphasis on taking away both the action and the platforming. The cinematic-centric nature would be ok if the "movie" aspect was good. it's a very uncreative "strong female protagonists are still new,right?"approach and it's brutally dull and predictable. You know she's going to get caught, and almost immediately escape. Sometimes you can even guess exactly how it'll happen. It looks nice, but who cares if it isn't fun or creative or enjoyable, or barely a game?

At first I was hesitant. I saw videos, didn't like what I saw. As a fan of TR for years (since the first one that came out), I'd say that this is not a Tomb Raider. So if you're looking for the old TR experience, you won't find it. Seriously, if you change the name of the character and the title of the game, nobody would think it's a Tomb Raider. No puzzles, no creative climbing, press a button and you'll see where you have to go, a lot of 'push forward and jump from time to time' scenes... definitely not an old school TR game. But on the other side, I have fun playing with this. The environment is gorgeous, the graphics are really great, there's a lot of extra items to find. The story takes place in Japan, which is something I was expecting in TR. Another game I bought in both PS3 and PC, and I enjoyed a lot of hours playing it. But again, not a Tomb Raider, call it reboot, call it 'next gen', but not a Tomb Raider.

This tomb raider is my favourite for a few reasons. The major reason that this had become my favourite version is the combat. The combat just really flows well and most weapons work well on all enemy's with a few enemy's being weak to different types of weapons. The other two reasons is the design of the levels and the writing. While the writing is a little weak it is still a fully complete story that keeps you entertained. My only knock against it is that there is little to no tomb raiding going on in a game named tomb raider but that doesn't distract to much. The game of the year edition is pretty good because for just a little more you get an extra tomb which only take a few minutes but has a few good puzzles in it. You also get all of the outfits so that you can change what Lara looks like. which if you don't like here current out fit then there are some good ones in there. my favourite outfit was the archery or marksman one. I really recommend this game to everybody as it is very captivating. PS: I started playing it at about 8 at night and ended up staying up all night until about noon the next day to finish the game as I liked it so much and didn't want to stop playing

Tomb Raider is an excellent game overall. The game is incredibly visually appealing, though depending on your rig some adjustments will need to be made as this game can be very taxing on your gpu. Gameplay and controls are tight and give a solid 3rd person experience. I was not a fan of the somewhat large number of quick time events, but that aside it provided a very exciting action adventure experience.
A survivor is born, for the beginning of a journeySparksStones | March 20, 2015 | See all SparksStones's reviews »
Tomb Raider is a great franchise, one of the best in his genre. In 1996, we met Lara Croft, a brave woman that like to travel the whole world searching for relics and treasures, killing wild animals e fighting against supernatural powers. For 17 years, we followed this "tomb raider" in your quests. In TR 2013, we can see the beginning of Lara's journey and how she decided to follow his father's path. Lara is traveling on an expedition to find the lost kingdom of Yamatai when the ship is struck by a violent storm, causing a shipwreck and leaving the survivors stranded on an isolated island. Lara and the others will have to survive in this strange island and his unfriendly people. Graphics are beautiful and the physics is amazing (the TressFX technology make the move of Lara's hair be like no other seen before). The sound is gorgeous and the songs are very well chosen, playing on right moment of action and suspense. Now we have QTE's moments. In combat, the gameplay is a bit different of the previous games, but easy to learn. The game has a kind of RPG system, with an skills tree, where you can upgrade your habilities and your guns (by the way, Lara's Dual Pistols are not present in the game, this time your friend is a crossbow, which can be upgraded too). For that, you need to hunt animals and find fragments hidden into trunks in the scenario. In short, this is a great reboot and need be played by every fans of Lara Croft. It's my second favorite of the series by now (1996/Anniversary is still my #1).
