Tomb Raider is one of the greatest action adventure series since the playstation days but since it been through a bit of an identity crisis since the PS2 days, Crystal Dynamics decided to go back to a blank slate with the 2013 reboot. Tomb Raider didn't really did well in gaming community, just press and game conventions wise. Anyway Tomb Raider is re-done for the next gen systems, PS4 and Xbox One. The only difference between them is graphics and controller wise but is about the same.
Story is the same as it was before. Lara Croft and her crew mates of the Endurance gets shipwrecked on a island that is inhabited by crazed fanatics that wants to revive the old sun queen of the island. No matter if its on PC, PS3, 360, or PS4 and Xbox One it is a great action adventure ride story wise.
Gameplay is mainly the same except it makes use of some of the new features of the controllers, mainly on the PS4. Also all DLC is included on the disc so no more DLC downloading. Anyway it is great to have the lightbar and the speaker of the controller being used quite a bit, which I thought was cool. Multiplayer still is the same old modes that is not great at all.
Graphics is upgraded with the look and feel besides being at 1080p 60 frames a second (Xbox one version is at 720p at 30 frames, just saying) Anyway the graphics and sound makes the player more connected to the game, especially with Lara trying to survive and get off of the island.
Overall I give this game a 10 out of 10 and I think this is a great game to show off the new PS4 to anyone.

what a great game.I have played tomb raider games in the past but this is the best one ever. 1st off they finally got rid of the TANK controls so Laura is free to move about easily. also another problem fixed is the insane platform problems in the past so now if you trip off a ledge you don't spend the next 20 mins making your way back to the top. graphics are beautiful plus the story is too bad(I've seen worse) overall a game work checking out loved it
