Tomb Raider is one of those series that has been around for a while. Well known for the its strong female protagonist along with the fun of solving puzzles and raiding ancient tombs, this game has made its place in the hall of legends. So, what does this installment of Tomb Raider have in store for us? Unlike, its predecessors, Tomb Raider (2013) is a huge step in a different direction. Lara Croft returns, younger, fresher and more relatable than before, on a great new adventure. The game focuses much more on action and adventure than puzzle solving. The main focus of the story is survival and shows how Lara evolves and how a survivor is born. The graphics are stunning. Featuring, ancient windy palaces to old WW-2 era bases on snowy peaks, this game is breathtakingly beautiful. The story is definitely better than before, with more focus being put on character development, due to the large array of supporting cast that accompany Lara. The story is fun to play and will keep you interested till the end. The multiplayer is the where the game falls short. It is extremely buggy, that is if you manage to actually find anyone to play with. Even if you are lucky enough, you'll often find yourself clipping through objects or being unable to spawn after dying. Another con here is that the number of tombs in the game is few. People who loved the previous iterations for their puzzle solving, may find the the tombs too few and too easy for their liking. The game also features a camera bob which makes Lara's movements much more realistic. Unfortunately, it also results in motion sickness for many people, myself included. So, be careful if you plan on playing for more than an hour. Overall, Tomb Raider (2013) is a solid entry into the series. Though, some might not enjoy the step away from the traditional style; the general public will find much joy in this title.
The 2013 Tomb Raider reboot is a game vastly different from its previous iterations, with lots of action, stealth and exploration and good story-telling. The game is heavily combat-focused, though the multitude of collectibles would lead you to think otherwise (they do play a part though, especially if you're the kind of player that likes exploring). While I don't want to make spoilers, I guarantee that you will at least be intrigued by the story, even though its quality may not be absolutely consistent. The few existent tombs in the game are not particularly challenging, but are a nice touch. If you enjoy Uncharted type of games or big budget games or both and want to find out more about the origins of Lara Croft (though they may not be what the original creator had in mind). then go and play this game. It's definitely a memorable experience!
I played this game with low expectations, the trailers and gameplay looked like Uncharted with a female protagonist, and after completing it, that is exactly how I would describe this game. The combat is your typical third person shooter with chest high walls scattered around, the combat controls are pretty good though. You also get to acquire a few weapons, a bow, a shotgun, an assault rifle, and a handgun, which can all be upgraded. It's not a huge selection, but it's still better than being limited to only two. The puzzles / tombs really let the game down imo, extremely short and easy to solve, the puzzles are mainly in the tombs, and only took me a minute or so to solve. The tombs are generally just one room containing the puzzle and a chest with some material you use to upgrade your weapons. The story was actually a lot better than I expected, though the ending was rather obvious. Most of the characters were also either uninteresting or annoying. I really only liked one of the characters, Conrad Roth. Overall it's a decent game, but not as good as the old ones.
Wow. Got this on sale and ended up enjoying it way more than expected. I’ve never been a fan of Tomb Raider. Lara Croft’s sex-symbol status makes her a boring character, and the tank-like controls were a real turnoff. And when I heard that a “gritty” remake was out, I just rolled my eyes, since it seemed like yet another misguided attempt to save a floundering franchise by Chris Nolan-ing it up. The reviews talking about how Lara quickly becomes a killing machine didn’t help my perception. But dang, this game is actually good. The best part of it is the island. It’s wonderfully realized, and becomes almost a character in its own right: harsh, malevolent, but with a stark beauty and mystery. Lara is actually a likable character, too. Yes, she becomes a killing machine too quickly, but the writers made it as believable as they could within the confines of a game that is largely about combat. I know it’s SUPPOSED to be about exploration, but honestly there’s not a lot of free exploration here. There are environmental puzzles and a steady progression instead. But the story itself and the way it unfolds make you feel like you are exploring and delving deeper, so in my book it’s a win. Lara feels vulnerable without being exploited, and I like that even while she’s kicking butt she’s not portrayed as a kick-butt character, but rather a desperate person trying to survive. She’s relatable to the end. It probably helps that she keeps all her clothes on. Combat is satisfying. Didn’t try stealth, so I can’t comment on that. But the controls are right. Platforming is surprisingly good, too. On the whole a great game, and it has me looking forward to the sequel.
Tomb Raider introduces a new, younger and more inexperienced Lara Croft. Compared to the previous games this one has less of a focus on platforming and more on stealth, combat and story telling. It looks fantastic and the game is really perfectly optimised which means it should run great if you pass the recommended specs. Unfortunately the tomb puzzles are not particularity challenging and replay ability is really low because enemies doesn't respawn making revisiting old areas for collectables quite dull.
