"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.
Good story, but not our classic Lara CroftThreshNautBlitz | July 16, 2014 | See all ThreshNautBlitz's reviews »
Tomb Raider is a good story with an annoying protagonist. The game is overhyped for having a female protagonist and needs to be looked at in closer detail just like any other game. The Lara Croft in this reboot does not possess the same personality as the original Tomb Raider protagonist. And while some may claim the new Lara is going to have differences than the classic Lara because it's an origin story, it still does not make up for the huge gap in the mindsets of each version. Overall the story is decent and worth a shot. The gameplay is cheap and throws immeasurable key mashes, quick time events, and jump scares at you. The only thing that kept me going on this game was the beautiful graphics, decent story overall, and the exploration side of the game. If this goes on sale, give it a try.

Different from from the other Tomb Raider Games.alanmaz567 | July 12, 2014 | See all alanmaz567's reviews »
The game looks visually amazing, and the Requirements to play the game are not too high. The storyline is well written, the game might take you around 6-8 hours to beat depending on how well you play. The gameplay has some elements of stealth in it. There isn't allot of puzzle solving in the game. The multiplayer in my opinion was really fun. After you finish the game you can come back and unlock all the hidden collectibles that you haven't gotten yet, some of which giv you a little back story to some of the characters that you will meet or have met throught the game. Overall the game is amazing and i recommend getting it on a sale.
A kinda different Tomb RaiderSeibitsu | June 30, 2014 | See all Seibitsu's reviews »
Don't buy this if you are expecting a Tomb Raider. This reboot brings you a new Lara, weaker who has to face difficult situations. This Tomb Raider is kinda more realistic, you find more crude scenes and loads of quick time events (which are a little bit hard to master at the beggining as they don't tell you which key to press). Still after all of that is a game you can easily enjoy as long as you don't have in mind you are playing a Tomb Raider.
Tomb Raider: A Wonderful Gamemrminecrafter1 | June 25, 2014 | See all mrminecrafter1's reviews »
This is different from the rest of the series. That doesn't necessarily mean it's bad. The graphics in this game are absolutely outstanding and ranks up in the top 10 most beautiful games on my list. The story is incredible, thanks to the excellent voice acting and animation. Watching Lara Croft grow throughout the game is really amazing. Gameplay is pretty good while admittedly linear. Every weapon is fun to use especially the bow. I would no doubt about it, pick it up. But caution to all Tomb Raider fans: This is a different game from the rest of the series. Completely different.
