"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.

Well it was a great game. Loved the new Lara and her origin story, a great fresh start for her. The game was well paced. Had a great soundtrack and Atmosphere was amazing throughout, loved it. Graphics were pretty good, nothing outstanding but sill pretty good, Fire effects and lighting was great. Character animations were kinda rigid or maybe I have been spoiled by Uncharted :P. Gameplay was good but can be improved upon a lot, it didn't felt polished. Liked the cusomizablity of weapons and such and having ablities/perks etc. Raiding tomb's was kinda fun. The cinematic sequences were, for the most part, great although some of them were kinda meh. Quick time event were really annoying, a real turn off. Aside from Lara, there weren't any interesting characters in the game. Her friends were not developed and had poor voice acting. Lara voice acting herself was also sometimes not that good but the british accent kinda covered it .
One of the best portrayals of a transformationMaNonF1rE | July 22, 2015 | See all MaNonF1rE's reviews »
When I first bought Tomb Raider I was a little concerned going into it. I'd played the originals on PS1, but never liked the mid 2000s reboots. So going into another Tomb Raider, I had to wonder what direction they would take it. Like most games this generation they tend to be flashy and center on character stories (more cinematic), usually hit or miss. I can gladly say this game is a huge hit, there are dozens of moments that stick in my mind to this day after playing it that I don't tend to get from most games. You find this girl that you don't really feel connected to and maybe even dislike at the beginning and happens to be accident prone, but as the game progressed I found a girl who was transforming into a strong woman, who realized she could do more than she ever thought (both mentally and physically). I'm not gonna talk about the QTEs since all games use them these days, I wouldn't say they were overdone. Watching Lara visually transform from being terrified to fearless was one of the most convincing journeys I've ever seen. I look forward to the upcoming sequel.

Another well crafted masterpiece by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix .This game is about Lara and her friends and their adventure in a mysterious island .The story is good and interesting but what won me in this game is something else ... The tombs were if not the best one of the best things in the game .Getting to explore and solve the puzzles of each one was great and at the end there was always a treasure for you .The upgrades for your weapons were also really good and also the tools were nice and interesting .This game made me care about collectibles because it gives a backstory for them + the journals were really interesting .The combat was also good especially the bow .Overall a must buy IMO

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

I've been wanting to get into the Tomb Raider series for quite some time now, but only now, after playing this reboot/origin do I feel confident enough to dive into the older games. This is something that Sqenix seems to do pretty well. As gameplay goes, I can't say that TR blew me away. I found that the only thing that challenged me was catching the damn QTE prompts before it was too late and I had to watch it again. This wasn't enough of a problem that I didn't have a ton of fun exploring the island and seeing Lara get the shyte kicked out of her. All in all, I'd recommend it, and I might even play it again.
