"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.
One of the best, a brilliant story09baydas | Nov. 7, 2015 | See all 09baydas's reviews »
As someone who had never played a tomb raider or uncharted game, I was sceptical. I was wrong to be. This game is one of the best games I have ever played both in terms of its story and mechanics. The player has to engage in some problem solving, although if you like, you can lower the difficulty and the game will give you hints. The graphics are amazing and the game runs well on budget hardware. The game has an open world feel to it. The story lasts around 10-12 hours, and there is multiplayer too. In summary, you should buy this game.

I haven't played the other Tomb Raiders because I didn't liked them to be honest. I gave the series a chance by buying Tomb Raider Collection HD for PS3, but I really lost my interest after the first hour of playing. Everything has changed with this 'reboot'. The MC is now great, her movement and voice acting are done as it should. Making the game more realistic was something that the game needed. The crafting is quite interesting and it makes you want to explore more. It's not a perfect game in order to have a 10 from me, but it is close. Maybe a little more polish for the other characters and the game would've been better.

Because of nowadays trends, almost every game must have multiplayer mode... even when it's not needed. It's same in new (old) Tomb Raider game. If you ask me, that's almost all bad what I can say about new Tomb Raider. Well, maybe there is one more thing - it's not same as old TR games, which I loved even more than this new one. So, how is it? It's amazing. I would love to have this kind of reboot for every old game. Story is nice, world is interesting, beautiful graphics (and of course Lara!) with amazing climate. Even tho I'm not fan of QTE those were rather good in this game. Sure, it's also not so long, but for nowadays single player games it's normal. Since this TR game was so good I can't wait for another one. Hope it will be same, or even better. If you never played old Tomb Raider games, it doesn't matter. Since it's "restart" of series, it's a good thing to start your adventure as Lara Croft with this one.
A thrilling game that will keep you hooked!sig00 | Aug. 10, 2015 | See all sig00's reviews »
This game was a great reboot for the Tomb Raider series. The graphics are absolutely stunning in full HD but does not require ridiculous hardware to run. As for the gameplay, it's amazing as well. You truly feel as if you are Lara in this title. The storyline is thrilling and will keep you hooked until the end. The "leveling" system in the game is well thought out and balanced. Overall the game is great. The downfall is that the controls were slightly clunky at time and I personally would *very rarely* have random lag spikes. They weren't game breaking, but were slightly annoying. Very good game, and definitely worth getting!
Lara is back, HELL YEAH!Spartan_117 | July 25, 2015 | See all Spartan_117's reviews »
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 .
