This is How to Reboot a Franchise

cedarson | April 15, 2014 | See all cedarson's reviews »

I was one of the most devout Tomb Raider fans back in the day.

When I bought a PS1, Resident Evil and Tomb Raider were the primary reasons. So my standards for the Tomb Raider franchise are always pretty high. When I heard they were doing a reboot, I was a bit skeptical, but I decided to give it a shot. Man, am I glad I did.

I love just about everything with this game: The pacing, the realism, the combat, the puzzles. It's all here. The sense of adventure is here, too, thanks to the wonderful environments. This is how to reboot a franchise. In fact, I might just fire it up today after beating it a few months ago after writing this review!

Uncharted for PC gamers

spycid | April 15, 2014 | See all spycid's reviews »

You have heard about Uncharted before but you haven't played it? Then this is the game for you. Finally Tomb Raider gets a reboot (not that it was required) since it was long overdue for a new Tomb Raider to get out.

Tomb Raider is one of the best action adventure game of 2013. With a wafer thin storyline, the gritty gameplay, beautiful graphics and amazing set pieces, this game definitely deserves a goty award.

It's a must play for all Tomb Raider and Action-Adventure fans. This is the best deal out there right now, although it has most of the cosmetic dlcs. Still it's worth getting it now as the price is not going go down anytime soon.

Great in all Aspects

peshmi | April 15, 2014 | See all peshmi's reviews »

This game doesn't try anything revolutionary, it doesn't gamble. However, it has a very solid base. The graphics are great, the gameplay is ordinary but well done and fun, and the story is interesting. There are also a lot of extras that are interesting. Some inform on things such as WWII and history, which I personally found to be interesting.

When compared to the original series, I am unsure if a player would find them similar. They have their similarities, but I feel like this is a significantly different game.

I would definitely recommend it, though. It's well rounded and just fun to play. It's an AAA game done right.

New to the series

wooglah | March 25, 2014 | See all wooglah's reviews »

I never liked Tomb Raider. I know, it's a classic and everything and I've tried the first three games in the series back then when they were published... and later, gave it another chance with Underworld... But it was not my thing. I do not like games where hard puzzle means that camera is glued to your back so you can't see where to jump next. While there are some lame moments in this game, like all the quick time events, it's actually pretty fun to play. I had some free time last summer and managed to play and finish it in 24 hours straight, then went to sleep for another 12 hours. While that may sound insane, it does say a lot of the game, because I can't remember the last time that happened... Maybe with Sea Dogs back when I was below 20, and that was a decade ago. So, yeah, there's an interesting story, nice maps for exploring, a lot of action, some easy puzzling, beautiful graphics and sound, and a lot of optional stuff to collect if you like that. Get it sometime, you will not be sorry.

Excellent restart to the franchise

krimhorn | Feb. 20, 2014 | See all krimhorn's reviews »

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.
