"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.

This game is a Brilliant title, being a prequel if you haven't played any other Tomb raider titles then, don't worry! you wont be left confused in the story line in this game. the gameplay is brilliant and expect it to be very similar to uncharted as you climb to places to progress through the story and sneak around and kill the enemies trying to keep out of sight all through the story, even if you play this game once, if you go back again you will always find something you missed, be it the hidden tombs in the story line, or the collectables thrown around the map. you will fight your way further through the story while upgrading Lara's guns, bows and perks to help her in combat and help her while killing the savage island people who don't want her to leave the island. this games visuals are very well done, they have the Grizzly, scary look to give you more of a understanding of what Lara is coping with and going through in this game. this game also has multiplayer, it is similar to the single player in gameplay and has the weapons you use throughout the game in, like the bow which gives a great twist to the multiplayer and adds a unique gameplay mechanic to this multiplayer. you will level up and use salvage points which are the currency in this game, to unlock new weapon upgrades and new people to play as, this game is definetly worth every penny and is a great title to add to your game collection and has plenty of gameplay to keep you gripped in the story

This remake of Tomb Raider hits the spot - and it hits the spot good. As a girl growing up with the old games I find myself extremely relieved that this game exceeded my expectations, to the fullest. And Lara finally has normal boobs! I love this game. I loved every moment of it and I can truly say that it's been a long time since I felt this passionately for a game.
The visuals are stunning. It is a gorgeous game. The scenery is beautiful and the details are remarkable. The way Lara changes throughout the game, the wounds, scars and scratches, it all adds to the experience. Even her clothes takes a beating! This makes the game a lot more immersive. There is a lot to discover and many different ways to explore.
The main story and characters are interesting, however nothing beats Lara's own story that is (not very subtly) being told, a story of how she became the Lara Croft we've all grown used to. The sound and voice acting is superb and it is used well. You can hear the panic in Lara as she struggles through her adventure and how she overcomes her fears, which is made in a very delicate way.
I usually find myself struggling with the latest AAA games when it comes to gameplay but this game is well optimized. I rarely found myself annoyed or confused with the controls which was very welcomed.
Overall, this is a great game. It is an adventure and it will amaze you. It's stunningly beautiful, compelling and it's a game done right. Even the AI is more than decent and might give you a challenge or two.
Without a doubt, I highly recommend this game. Get it.
Not the usual Tomb RaiderAsphodel | May 16, 2013 | See all Asphodel's reviews »
There is a curious sensation on playing this game. If some say Uncharted was inspired on Tomb Raider, the fact is this new Tomb Raider takes its roots on the Uncharted. It's like an Ourobouros. It is appealing that Lara looks more human in this game than in any other game, and it feels quite fast-paced to play it through. A must have for all adventure games fans.
Second best game of march.GaMaGamer | May 9, 2013 | See all GaMaGamer's reviews »
March was a pretty silent month game wise.
Most companies was frightended by the anticipation of Bioshock Infinite and waited until April and March to relase their completed titles.
Tomb Raider mixes great gameplay, good visuals with a better than decent story to keep you motivated trough this great game.
A great game, it is probably not the same as the previous ones but it is also one of the better games in the franchise. I recommend it.

I really wasn't expecting much from Tomb Raider since the series was getting pretty stale. I have to say, this game is just amazing. The graphics are some of the best I've seen on PC and the gameplay is varied enough that you don't feel like it's a chore playing through it. Overall I'm extremely happy with the game overall and it's been a blast to play.
The only negative I can think of is the multiplayer is just throwaway stuff you usually see in games nowadays.
I definitely recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a good single player game!
