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.
Fantastic Game, Well Worth Your TimeDBOT187 | Aug. 15, 2014 | See all DBOT187's reviews »
Tomb raider is a fantastic reboot of the series, overall it is about 25 hours long, the story is good (if a little cheesy and somewhat of a disconnect between scared lara in the movie clips and then a murdering rampaging lara in the game)
Be warned some of the death scenes if you die can be a bit gruesome, but besides that a top game.
Don't bother with the single player extra tomb its 5 minutes long at best and not worth your money.
Creation of a Legend TombRaideryngdr | Aug. 14, 2014 | See all yngdr's reviews »
The latest version of TR has got great graphics, music, and controls. Playing and watching Lara develop has been a real pleasure. GOTY edition garners you everything with a lower price tag. AI scripts seem well done with bad guys ducking and dodging attacks and yell at you to scare the little girl. Crafting system allows players to play however they want, ie mod bow for silent killing, mod guns for blast'em up style. The puzzles are not hard enough to take days to solve nor easy enough to solve in a min. and the battle interact with puzzles swiftly and smoothly. Great game at a fair price

In a time where it's popular to make terrible reboots that miss the point of the original series, Tomb Raider is one of the few that actually improves a series. I would of liked to see more puzzle and jumping elements like the original games (though they are still core to the game), but nearly every other aspect of the game has been improved. I really liked exploring the environments and finding all the hidden items and improving your equipment and skills, however I would of liked the skill tree to have more meaningful choices (the amount of unlocks required to unlock the next tier of skills means you will get pretty much be getting everything anyway).
Sad to be a CroftNestorSaliven | Aug. 4, 2014 | See all NestorSaliven's reviews »
I know the developers wanted something new for a reboot, but honestly this is not Tomb Raider at all. The quick-time events really doesn't fit for tomb raider, not to mention that there aren't really tombs nearby just a jungle if you dont have the dlc-s. And those are also really small areas where you don't really need your brain only your gear to unlock. You can run around and kill animals and people, explore the area and search for stuff...well thanks...
The combat skills are nice and really useful and I really liked when it first appeared in a TR game, you can kill someone without a gun and stealth and stuff...but...this is not a Thief nor Dishonored nor....It doesn't really have a challenge at all. The enemies always know where to aim even when they don't see you. I think they have x-ray vision.
No hard puzzles which we loved in the previous games, no hard jumps, no timed open doors nothintg what makes Tomb Raider really Tomb Raider. Yeah a chick named Lara Croft but really thats all the connections we have. And here what broke the RE series either, developers made an action game like the other 500, of a game we loved just the way it was, an adventure game.(In RE a surival-horror) The action part really bored me. And the quick time events. I really hate those.
Also...No swan dive...
It has potentials and great ideas, but they erased all the earlier things which were awesome. It is really a nice and beautiful game though. The environment are really pretty. The combat elements are great, although Lara always ducks and none of those nice side jumps while shooting. No backward somersault. No feature like acrobatics. And I still think the last AC game has more of the adventurous exploring and tomb raiding than this game, but you should give it a try. Still a nice action game which somehow have a girl in it called Lara....
For a TR game: 65 For an action game: 95
