I was excited to receive this game as my first gamefly game. I must say, this game looks great. The graphics are so crisp and their is hardly any lag at all. I give the graphics two thumbs up. The overall simple player campaign is great too. Of course, they have to stretch the campaign out and the game is very unrealistic but that is what makes it interesting and fun. I am hooked on the story. You play as Lara Croft and you are stranded on an island filled with bad guys and untold secrets dating back centuries ago. I am not going to get too into the game because you all will have to see for yourself. I highly recommend this game. The only thing I don't like is the multiplayer. As soon as you hop into a game you are instantly killed by people with upgraded weapons that kill you with one shot while you are stuck with a sub machine gun that takes at least 6-7 shoots to take someone down. The multiplayer felt cheap and rushed. This is a single player game!
It's a shame that the next-gen consoles didn't launch with a good action-adventure title from first-parties, but the next generation did get this, which is Tomb Raider the way it was really meant to be played. My only complaint is that the trophies/achievements are the same as the last-gen release. Including a hefty number involving the lackluster multiplayer that really has no place in this game at all.
