I was a huge fan of Tomb Raider when it released for Xbox 360 and I completely 100% the game. So I figured it would be a great idea to pick it up again and play through since I haven't touched it since release week. I made it about halfway through the game and hit about 6-7 bugs already on my playthrough until I ran across the final one. A game breaking bug that completely stopped me from progressing my story. I don't know if it was a bad port or if the remake was just filled with bugs, but my friend also rented it and ran into several bugs himself. Overall a great game if you can play through the whole thing, but for now I'm giving it a 1/10 because I was extremely upset with all the times I had to restart checkpoints and finally just couldn't play.

Ok here is my breakdown to this game. First off I would like to input that I have NEVER played a Tomb Raider game before this one. Second, I dont like Square Enix AT ALL. With that said, lets get started. First, I want to start off by saying this game has pretty good graphics. The lighting and environment are well put together and even though I know these graphics are just the start of next gen consoles, they can only get better with future games.
Now, the fun part, THE CONS. Like I said, I never played a TR game in my life and was expecting this reboot to have more of a background story of the protagonist considering well...ITS A REBOOT. This story line throws you in a WILD storm of events that just have you dazed and confused the whole game with little background and no idea why its all happening. The antagonist, whom I wont spoil, is seen very little of and has no background or even the slightest bit of showtime in the game. Finally, I'd like to mention the attempt of making a skill tree. Even though it was THERE it was too easy to fill and had little to no meaning.
Next, the multiplayer. Although I loved the attempt at this Gears of war type multiplayer, it lacked in server dedication and consistency. I know games like these don't really have an AMAZING multiplayer but I would like to try it out without getting disconnected ever other game.
Lastly, I'm a hardcore achievement hunter and I will say most of these achievements are pretty easy but when it came to the multiplayer achievements they were almost impossible to get (like Assassins Creed) if you know what i mean. I did end up getting them thanks to a boosting partner but by yourself its almost impossible.
All in all, I am just baffled by the amount of people who rate this game above 7. It is confusing how a game like this can get a higher rating than a game like Forza 5 or Titanfall not because they are big titles just because this game lacks a lot of things. Peace
Technically, this game is really solid, but it's so disappointing that another classic franchise has been ruined. This is just another "me too" action shooter trying to be Uncharted. Shooters like this are pure drab, as they are only there to appease the masses. Awful AI, and cut and paste scenarios are in abundance. Imagine a crappier gears of war. This series needs to go back to its noble roots and make a real tomb raiding game.
