The game delivered more than I expected. I don't play on a pc and am an xbox guy so I cannot snub the graphics of any other versions. The 360 version however cannot compare. I played the 360 version and this game not only looks miles better but also plays better too. Also, the graphics are better than par compared to most of the current next-gen games and it actually amazes me how they could not give assassins creed black flag the same treatment. Assassins Creed BF looks like butt compared to the graphic overhaul of this definitive edition. I hope they make a definitive edition of GTAV now. I've held off on playing the game so far in hopes that a next-gen version is released so I may enjoy the at a much higher level. I finished and beat TR on 360 and liked it a lot. After seeing some previews, I was very curious to see what they meant by definitive in terms of difference between the last gen and next gen. I played the game the whole way through this time and enjoyed the enhanced 5.1 Digital Sound, the improved physics and graphics, as well as the more responsive controls. The game is really enhanced and cant wait to see how what other games get a makeover based on my experience. I bought the digital version on the xbox full price and thought I got my money's worth.

Although I have never played any of the previous Tomb Raider titles from the previous generations of game consoles, I thoroughly enjoyed this title. In my opinion these graphics are the best on Xbox One. Overall, the game play is immersive with great execution of music and various changes in camera angles to add intensity. From the very first level, I was impressed with the way this game pulls you into the moment. There are several game play sequences throughout the campaign, such as sliding uncontrollably down a river or parachuting through a forest, only barely missing certain death, that really mange to get you heart pumping. Level design is creative as is the integration of various tools which are used to access previously inaccessible areas. Puzzles are placed throughout the game; however, the frequency and difficulty of the puzzles are not too great to distract from the main story. I found the story line very interesting an surprisingly dark. The combat was fluid for a third person perspective, and included various melee moves, a bow, pistol, shotgun, and machine gun style rifle. As the game progressed, the combat did become somewhat unexciting; however, unlocking new finishing moves as the game progressed did add some new excitement. This game has more collectibles hidden throughout the levels than any other I have played. Although I am the type of gamer who typically enjoys taking the time hunting for hidden objects, the sheer volume of collectibles did have me wondering if this was an over attempt to add substance to the game.

I found this game to be a great breath of fresh air amongst the sea of first persons shooters, racing games, etc., and though the experience was incredibly unique and enjoyable.
