Wow. This is by far the most graphically enhanced game I have ever played. As if the Xbox 360 or PS3 versions weren't good enough, this game brings next-gen graphics to an entirely different level. The game is almost identical to last-gens, so unless you haven't played the game yet I wouldn't suggest renting it just for the graphics, but everything about this game is perfect. Everything runs fluidly, and I would highly recommend it to anyone that likes Action/Adventure games. Tomb Raider receives a perfect 10 out of 10 from me.
Amazing to look at, a pleasure to explore the world around you, and the combat system is fantastic. As a new player to this franchise (despite gaming for over 15 years now...) I can't wait for possible future editions to this team's solid product here. Just solid A+ fun.

The story has a hard time pulling my interest and the characters, other than Lara, don't seem to connect with me. However, the gameplay is smooth and leaves the player to decide how he/she wants to approach the objective. There is nothing new about the style of upgrading weapons and your skill tree and it is a bit like Assassins Creed gameplay, if the scale of area you could traverse was much smaller and limited. But I have found myself having fun beating the game and grabbing the trophies, so I would say it is a good rental until the next games arrive.
