Excellent restart to the franchisekrimhorn | 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.
The Most Polished Game Of The Yearupandatom786 | Feb. 12, 2014 | See all upandatom786's reviews »
Tomb Raider was made with a specific goal in mind: to reboot a classic franchise for the modern age of video games. The development team succeeded tremendously in this goal. Although the game doesn't really tread any new ground, it's a really fun game to play, and it's obvious the high level of craftsmanship that went into making it. This is a smooth, smooth game. The controls are perfectly calibrated and tested, the graphics are immaculate, and voice acting and story are professionally done. This isn't the most exciting or innovative game of the year, but you'd be hard pressed to find one that's more fun to play.

I used to play a lot of Tomb Raider back in the day, and I can tell you that at least from my perspective, this doesn't feel that much like a Tomb Raider game, it feels you're playing a silly girl instead of Lara freaking Croft, you don't even wield dual pistols. Might as well call it Tomb Raider Origins. But aside from the feeling, it's a pretty good game. It's fun, it's one of those games that try really hard to be a movie with action packed quicktime events and everything. Puzzles, well there aren't many, I wouldnt call putting a barrel on a platform a puzzle but if you count those well there might be some puzzles in there. Graphical wise, the game is pretty nice, awesome textures, and if you have a powerful enough PC you can try out Tress FX hair simulation, which makes Lara look even better, but if you don't you don't need to panic, as the game is very well optimized and will run on lower end systems too.
All in all, fun casual game, you play the main story once, get the experience, and you're done.
They should have called it-Island RaiderDarkSparda | Feb. 8, 2014 | See all DarkSparda's reviews »
I have been Tomb Raider fan since time immemorial. This Tomb Raider reminds me back of the roots of the game in 1996. You can spend a lot of fun time while playing it. Sometimes this game reminds me of the Batman series. However, there is not a lot to choose as you play this game. It is prettly linear. The creators also managed very well to put RPG element in the game though it is not meant to be RPG at all. The action survival mode is quite engaging, but shooting and sneaking elements are not inventive. Although the story of the game is immersive it doesn't offer new elements to already similar game stories in the past. And thank God they put tombs to raid. It is of no coincidence that the game is called-Tomb Raider. This time they should have called it-Island Raider. I think that in some moments the actress that plays Lara has struggles in reading the script! All in all, good work guys! Wonder how will Lara look in the next-gen consoles!

I enjoyed playing this game from start to finish. I have never played any of the other games except a little bit of the first one god knows how long ago. So I wasn't really burdened with expectations however I really enjoyed this game. I found myself rooting for Lara all the way through. I can't really fault the combat or the exploration aspects of the game. The weapon upgrades are fun and going back to solve problems is enjoyable too. I can't think of any gripes I had about this game. However I have no idea how a purist would view it. I have actually recommended the game to a friend who also enjoys it.
