I've never been a fan of the Tomb Raider games, or movies, or anything other than the cosplayers, but this game seemed intriguing, and boy, if there ever was a game I glad i didn't skip...actually, there are quite a lot of those. Anyway... Unlike the previous games, LAra here looks like a human being. A perfect, unbelievably hot human being, but real nevertheless. Now, her personality is a little weird. She starts off kinda bossy, then when the going gets rough, she becomes this cute person, who worries about everyone, which is fine, i guess, and then kills an animal, and feels bad about it, which is also plausible, but after that, she becomes this one man army video game protagonist killing machine a little too fast. I guess, killing a levels worth of human beings can have that effect on you, but it still looks weird. Unlike the game, which is gorgeous. Even my aging video card was able to make this a stunning experience, where even just stopping for a few seconds, and looking around is a good time. The gameplay changed significantly, ina way, that now i can actually control this game properly. Previous games gave me such a hard time, that i would've fared better in real life, because the i would've only died once in the ruins. Anyway, here, i can do amazing stunts, and fight with army without any problem. Also, the treasure hunting is great!
Fantastic game! Control "Lara" as she tries to survive on a mysterious island, home to an ancient civilization whose Queen had magical powers,and which the Nazis tried to use during WWII !!! +Great Story and Acting. +Great Graphics(Even in 2016-looks amazing in 4K) +Return to form for TR. +Smooth, Intuitive Gameplay. +Very Few Bugs or Performance Issues. I don't know why and how this franchise does it, but I'm hooked to Lara Croft games since the triangle boobs Lara era. Keep 'em coming!
Hard reset for the Tomb franchise - for some step in right directions, for others not so much. To be honest game is nicely done. Spectacular graphics, good gameplay and intersting story will keep you in front of the screen enough to get Lara crawl under your skin once again, Unfortunately bad thing is that Tomb Raider feeling is pretty much gone... very small number of quests require "tomb raider" skills, which older players will not like at all. Best description for this game is survival arcade shooter, with accent on arcade shooter - very few times will you have to include your gray cells to finish a quest or find "the end of the tunel" Game itself is...let's say half linear, open world is not so open, but you travel from one location to another to revisit locations and use new skills to finish some leftover task or quest. Game is solidly optimized, but for the best feel you will need decent machine with enough graphic card memory and solid processor to run that smoothly. To sum up good game, great graphics, good arcade feeling, but very little tomb exploration, and all raider feel...
As my first entry into the Tomb Raider franchise, I found this reboot a very well-crafted game. It was very apparent to me that a lot of time and care was put into the making of this excellent game. The visual effects were stunning. Cutscenes were directed very well and provided for a lot of great screen shot moments. Character animations were realistic and played smoothly. The writing was done pretty well for an Origin story. The plot mostly takes a survivor story spin with a small amount of adventure thrown in. The story is linear, though once you get access to fast travel, you can go back and get collectibles you may have missed earlier. The game took me roughly 20 hours to complete on normal difficulty settings. Voice acting was also very good. I really enjoyed seeing Lara starting out so green and inexperienced and then grow into the seasoned adventurer that she eventually becomes. The game is very tough on the young Lara and I could not help but feel bad for the character as she gets battered and bruised repeatedly throughout the story. Combat takes a cover shooter approach. The game does provide some small amount of stealth activities to take out enemies silently but few options exist to stealth past encounters entirely. There is a simple progression system that allows Lara to aquire skills that improves combat and survival. There is also a system that allows upgrading and improvements to weapons that Lara acquires throughout the game. I found the progression to be extremely well-paced throughout the linear plotline, much like the Arkham series of games. In addition to the shooting, there were a good number of well-placed QTE activities that mixed things up a little. The maps were very nicely done and made full use of all dimensions to provide for lots of platforming opportunities. The game auto-saved progress regularly and had very generous checkpointing so that you will not have to redo much at all after a death. I only had a couple of issues with the game overall... There were a few crashes as I played through the game. Especially if I ALT-TAB frequently. My system is well above the recommended specs but found that reducing settings helped a little with the sudden crashes. The game still ran very smooth when my settings were maxed-out but those occasional crashes did get annoying. For an action/adventure type game, it was a bit heavy on the action and a little light on the adventure. Not quite what I would normally expect from a genre that is heavily inspired by Indiana Jones. Shooters are one of my favorite types of games but this one felt a little too "shooty" for my tastes. I was not keeping a tally, but Lara would have claimed a body count the size of a small army by the time I completed the game. Boss encounters were also very lacking. I would have liked to have seen more tombs that had something to do other than simple physics-based puzzles to complete and ways to complete more sections of the game through stealthy non-lethal means. One other minor complaint are the death animations. I already had a hard time seeing Lara put through some of the tortures of this adventure, but a few of the death animations were a little over-the-top. Not sure if getting impaled through the face was really necessary after failing an action event. Overall I was very surprised and pleased by this game. I am hoping that we will see further adventures for this rebooted series with the same attention to quality.
Really, really nice and surprisingly poignant game. The supporting cast is a bit weak at times and there are a few too many quicktime events, but, overall, the game is definitely memorable and, more importantly, fun. Such a nice game; I can't recommend it enough, really. Pros: - Immersive environment, music, graphics, and animations - Inspiring protagonist - Fun combat system - Challenging puzzles - Many rewarding collectibles Cons: - Relatively weak supporting cast - Weak antagonist - Too many "frustratingly cheap" quicktime events - Not enough puzzles
