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.

I couldn't stop playing this game, once I started. I remember the very first Tomb Raider game, which was great for its time. This one has upped the ante, and delivered a beautiful adventure game that will bring you back for more. The island is gorgeous and I couldn't help but going to explore little corners of the place, trying to find new areas or ways around obstacles. The puzzles were the right difficulty level for me, as it was challenging, yet not impossible. The story is even pretty good, even though it reminded me a bit of Lost (mysterious island, the "others", ships keep crashing). All in all, a super fun game that did not disappoint. Go get it!
siempre fui fan de tomb raider pero este es uno de los mejores
I've played the first tomb raiders, and I loved them. This is just like a dream for ppl like me!
I didn't expect seeing Lara Croft in such good shape after so many years, this survival-ish action adventure stealthy game is now a huge pillar for the franchise, it brings back so much from the old Tomb Raiders, the Stealth, the Stunts, the Action, the Adventure, and even adds some survival elements. There's even a multiplayer mode for this that I haven't tried yet. This should be played by any Tomb Raider nostalgic fan or a fan of action adventure games.
I've never experienced the classic tomb raider, therefore can't really compare between them. The current generation tomb raider offers a high quality cinematic experience which reminds me of Indiana Jones. The gameplay is linear, not exactly much to wander about, maybe too much guidance. The third person camera is done well by means of playing like a shooter game while maintaining a full view of the beautifully recreated world. I like the idea that you can play this like an FPS run and gun, or completely go stealth mode and try to get by without anyone noticing. This game has a good amount of jump scares, creating suspense and defining how weak Lara Croft is and how she overcomes her fears and becomes stronger. As this is a reboot of the original, its a good place to start for a new game, if you haven't played the classics, I would be lost in the story if not for this game!
