Short, simple, decentSulfie | Oct. 28, 2015 | See all Sulfie's reviews »
I played this game with low expectations, the trailers and gameplay looked like Uncharted with a female protagonist, and after completing it, that is exactly how I would describe this game. The combat is your typical third person shooter with chest high walls scattered around, the combat controls are pretty good though. You also get to acquire a few weapons, a bow, a shotgun, an assault rifle, and a handgun, which can all be upgraded. It's not a huge selection, but it's still better than being limited to only two. The puzzles / tombs really let the game down imo, extremely short and easy to solve, the puzzles are mainly in the tombs, and only took me a minute or so to solve. The tombs are generally just one room containing the puzzle and a chest with some material you use to upgrade your weapons. The story was actually a lot better than I expected, though the ending was rather obvious. Most of the characters were also either uninteresting or annoying. I really only liked one of the characters, Conrad Roth. Overall it's a decent game, but not as good as the old ones.
Actually quite goodibookworm | Oct. 16, 2015 | See all ibookworm's reviews »
Wow. Got this on sale and ended up enjoying it way more than expected. I’ve never been a fan of Tomb Raider. Lara Croft’s sex-symbol status makes her a boring character, and the tank-like controls were a real turnoff. And when I heard that a “gritty” remake was out, I just rolled my eyes, since it seemed like yet another misguided attempt to save a floundering franchise by Chris Nolan-ing it up. The reviews talking about how Lara quickly becomes a killing machine didn’t help my perception. But dang, this game is actually good. The best part of it is the island. It’s wonderfully realized, and becomes almost a character in its own right: harsh, malevolent, but with a stark beauty and mystery. Lara is actually a likable character, too. Yes, she becomes a killing machine too quickly, but the writers made it as believable as they could within the confines of a game that is largely about combat. I know it’s SUPPOSED to be about exploration, but honestly there’s not a lot of free exploration here. There are environmental puzzles and a steady progression instead. But the story itself and the way it unfolds make you feel like you are exploring and delving deeper, so in my book it’s a win. Lara feels vulnerable without being exploited, and I like that even while she’s kicking butt she’s not portrayed as a kick-butt character, but rather a desperate person trying to survive. She’s relatable to the end. It probably helps that she keeps all her clothes on. Combat is satisfying. Didn’t try stealth, so I can’t comment on that. But the controls are right. Platforming is surprisingly good, too. On the whole a great game, and it has me looking forward to the sequel.
A new better LaraCorax_E | Aug. 15, 2015 | See all Corax_E's reviews »
Tomb Raider introduces a new, younger and more inexperienced Lara Croft. Compared to the previous games this one has less of a focus on platforming and more on stealth, combat and story telling. It looks fantastic and the game is really perfectly optimised which means it should run great if you pass the recommended specs. Unfortunately the tomb puzzles are not particularity challenging and replay ability is really low because enemies doesn't respawn making revisiting old areas for collectables quite dull.
Fantastic Series beginningDemadizz | June 16, 2015 | See all Demadizz's reviews »
Fantastic reboot to the franchise and series. I look forward to playing the next one in line. The visuals were stunning the game play was tight and fluid. Tons of actions and lots of destruction all around. Lara seems to be accident prone with disaster and mayhem in every aspect. Solid game all around with tons of collectibles and side activities. Upgrades and level trees, it's all you could ask for in an action adventure game. 8/10
New elements on a new gameCastro0001 | June 10, 2015 | See all Castro0001's reviews »
A new approach on an old series the reboot of Tomb Raider share lots of similarities to the Uncharted series, but with more rpg elements and less platform exploration. The visuals are amazing and the story is very good. It's extremely violent what can be a good or a bad thing depend on your taste.
