Fantastic reboot!Selona83 | Sept. 17, 2014 | See all Selona83's reviews »
When the first uncharted came out in 2007 it was clear Naughty Dog took a lot from the old Tomb Raider games and did it really well. When this game came out last year, Crystal Dynamics returned the favor by taking inspiration from Nathan Drakes adventures in the Uncharted series. And boy...in my opinion they knocked it out of the park.
Sure, the game have a bit to many quick time events. But the great writing, fantastic setting, fun gameplay, stunning graphics makes up for it in spades. This game is on the graphics side just awesome. If you have a good GPU, crank the settings up and enjoy one of the best looking pc games to dates. The gameplay is really fun (a warning to sensitive ppl. Cause its quite violent. Both the kills you do and also the ones Lara suffers).
Am psyced for the sequel late next year. And am hoping Crystal can make the same leap Naughty Dog made from Uncharted 1 to 2. But this is a fantastic start!

Tomb Raider has never impressed me before as it has just done. This game is absolutely magnificent. I purchased the GOTY Edition (Game of the Year) when it was 75% off and I must say I have never been happier with a game purchase. Tomb Raider has great puzzles and luring mysteries that entice you throughout the entire story-line. You create bonds with the characters and are heartbroken when some die. Tomb Raiders story-line not only is perfectly put together, but is very long, so don't expect to finish in one or two days.
My Rating for Tomb Raider is (9.5 / 10)
Incredible adventure game with a major disconnectbibboorton | Sept. 9, 2014 | See all bibboorton's reviews »
And I loved it. The magical elements actually surprised me a bit, but I may be just ignorant of the franchise's roots. But overall, it's a great 10-hour experience with lots of fun to be had.
There is a glaring complaint to be had here, though. The combat started off great. It felt like you won't have to do a lot of fighting, which honestly would have been a welcome change from most everything else I've been playing lately. Lara was very hesitant to kill even just one guy. Then, by the end of the game, you're taking out hordes of enemies. What? Seriously? The game happened over the course of like 3 days. She became a killing machine in the span of that time?
But that doesn't detract from the great experience that this title offers, and it is a highly recommended game to spend your weekend playing. Just suspend your disbelief and you'll find a well-realized action-adventure RPG.

Tomb raider is one of the best games out there,The story is very interesting.When it comes to gameplay we can use bows or guns which is really fun.The atmosphere and the areas around the islands are astonishing they look super awesome.Voice casting is also done well.GOTY edition will provide with some DLCs such as hit man absolution guns which we can use in multiplayer,new skins and maps. Multiplayer is good too. Over all the game is pretty awesome and worth the price.

Not only Lara. Whole game is nothing like the Tomb Radier games we're used to. And that's not bad, because what we get here is an intense single player experience. There are some inconsistencies. Like for example - At the beginning of the game Lara cringes from killing a deer, to feed herself. Twenty minutes later she kills her first man and is all sobs. Sixty seconds after that she's a killing machine, shooting and strangling everyone in her path. But if you get over it, like I did, Tomb Raider is an amazing action game. Everything's crumbling around you, explosions wreak havoc on the environment. Goons are shooting at you. One misstep and you're dead(fortunately checkpoints are numerous, so you will not have to repeat huge chunks of the game). And death... Some animations are more than suggestive. Outright sadistic. Either it's the enemies dying, or unfortunate Lara suffering a fatal accident(at one point you swim in a rushing river and if you're not fast enough Lara will end up with a metal bar, sticking through her skull).
As many people say - GOTY's not worth the price. I bought it because it was on sale, half the price of normal edition. The DLCs aren't anything special. But the single player campaign. It's worth every penny.
