"After three hours playing the game, it's clear that no expense has been spared on this reinvention of the action-adventure series and its iconic heroine Lara Croft. No trend has been left unfollowed, either. Tomb Raider is an exhaustively complete collection of fashions in contemporary blockbuster game-making." - Eurogamer.com

Tomb Raider explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold. Download the Turning Point trailer to see the beginning of Lara’s epic adventure.
Smart / Resourceful Lara:
Lara must use her brawn and her brains to overcome an impossible situation. The player must guide Lara through physics puzzles, challenging environments, and a high-octane story to overcome a harrowing situation and make it off of the island alive.
Tomb Raider is pushing the action genre forward with visceral third-person combat and a deep weapon and gear upgrade system that Lara will have to strategically employ to overcome increasingly difficult enemies and environments. If you like the Uncharted or Batman Arkham franchises, Tomb Raider’s offering will compare favorably to these high quality experiences, but with a unique Survival Action twist.
It wouldn’t be Tomb Raider without certain signature elements. In addition to platforming, Lara will have to explore large areas to earn experience points that will upgrade her weapons and gear. One of the key elements of dynamic traversal is the gear gating gameplay loop: over the course of the game, Lara will continually improve her gear and will be able to reach previously inaccessible locations that will allow her to upgrade her gear and weapons even further.

The ''Tomb Raider'' series always had an amazing story-line. This game has an amazing story too. I always loved the character of Lara Croft, and it was fun too see how her game model changed because of new graphics and technology, and in this game the model is fantastic and the graphics are great too. Really, the only thing I don't like in that game is the multiplayer. But I always just wanted the main single player in tomb raider, so I still had a lot of fun. The sounds in the game are just great and the voice acting is amazing in my opinion. The gameplay is great and not that complicated. Tomb Raider was always great, and this game is great too. Overall this game is not a downfall of the series in my opinion, but it's not the best game in the series. I give this game a rating of : 85 It's great, but not perfect.
LARA is BACKAlinasser | Aug. 8, 2014 | See all Alinasser's reviews »
Tomb raider's Lara is back and she's better than ever, the series reboot is something all people should try and it's highly recommended as a modern action game.
Story: You will feel LARA "not physically ofc, ehm" but emotionally, you will feel like you are there with her during her journey and you will want to know how her story uncovers 9\10
Graphics: Great graphical reboot, The island feels real and with the definitive edition, things can not get better specially Lara's "Hair" 8.5\10
Sounds: helps a lot with the atmosphere and the feeling of constant danger in the game even when the music doesn't stand out. 7\10
Gameplay: It's great. It's new ,and it's easier "for the hardcore fans." the climbing, jumping, shooting ,even the QTEs,, all was great "best part of the game"
Replayability: once you are done with the story there is no reason to play again and the multiplayer mode is bland and mostly dead by now.
overall, great gameplay and story driven action game that everybody should try.
I love Lara!dan13lcab | Aug. 3, 2014 | See all dan13lcab's reviews »
Tomb Raider is a game that I personally was a revelation for me, with infinite Bioshock i found it to be the best games of 2013. In the game we find ourselves with a history not very innovative, but a gameplay and a exquisite Lara with which we are identifying and feel up to the pain of the wounds that suffers, fraught with moments of action worthy of a Hollywood production, as a player feels the adrenaline by several epic moments within the game. Artificial intelligence is another significant point if we play in difficulty high , perhaps the negative point of the game is the multiplayer that it looks as if it had been as by obligation or filler and ends up being more of the same .... and today with servers dead! Highly recommended.

I went into this gaming thinking it'd be a bland and poor action game. I'm glad to say the game proved otherwise. I found myself getting immersed in the game very quickly and found myself enjoying it more and more. I am a little disappointed by the DLC that is currently available, but the campaign offers a fair amount of things to do (collectibles, upgrading, tombs, etc). The game also looks incredibly beautiful and feels sturdy, like you're in full control.
A return to form for Ms. Croft.JURGMANDR | July 26, 2014 | See all JURGMANDR's reviews »
Tomb Raider is great. Here's a quick rundown of all the things that make it great in my opinion: 1. Camilla Luddington feels appropriately vulnerable in parts of the story and bad-ass in others, and was a great casting choice. The acting in general, is great (though there's only 3 guys doing the voices for basic enemies, which is nowhere near enough). 2. The bow and the ice axe feel appropriately weighty and all the weapons deliver satisfying kills/executions. 3. Controls are absolutely fantastic (very responsive). The cover system is simple and very effective overall (no button presses necessary, just get close to it). 4. If you've got a high level graphics card you'll be in love with the visuals. 5. The level design is fantastic, there are multiple ways around (at least in the bigger areas) and plenty of secrets to be found. 6. I really loved the UI, which was simple and effective (not quite Dead Space level UI but still great)
Cons: 1.The tombs are fun but there aren't enough of them, and they're all quite easy 2. Game will force you to fight certain enemies for setpiece moments (like Uncharted), instead of being given the option to sneak around (this is relatively rare though) 3. the survival instinct button is basically like detective vision in arkham asylum and not necessary imo.
Single Player is the only reason to play this, although multiplayer is fun if you can actually find people to play with.
