This game is a re-boot and totally not like the original tomb raider's.Firstly the graphics are incredibly nice on the ps4 and the character models look excellent.Beyond that there is not alot of impressive things about this game.The game does not follow the the behavior or activities of the original tomb raider and simply serves as a origin story for the character.Instead of searching for treasure or mysterious ruins like tomb raider would, this takes a backseat in the plot with most of the game just revolving around a mission to survive on an island against a crazy cult.No one in the game is really that memorable and is one dimensional.
The game is one giant action film cliche.There's a great amount of brutality,explosions,combat in the third person and platforming.This game is the perfect example of accessibility concessions being used in most modern games.There is a ridiculous amount of hand holding in the game and a over use of quick time events can make the game both very easy and frustrating at very random times.The controls for the game are good.
Overall tomb raider in my opinion is mediocre.Too many quick time events,plot and characters that are lame,and too much emphasis shifting away from challenging puzzles in favor of third person shooter mechanics.This game is a rent otherwise skip it.

Very Good

Great Single Player Experience

The game delivers a solid experience in single-player mode. Can't say the same for multi-player. I gave this game an 8 for single-player.

The levels are nice and large. The gameplay is easy and fluid. I haven't played many 3rd person shooters lately, but this was easy to get into.

The story line was rich with content, although, to me, it got old fairly quick. You seem to find a lot of 'relics' that have no real reason for being in the game.

My main gripe with the game is that the bosses seem robotic. The main antagonist in the game was way to easy to beat - using a fighting mode where you just wait for buttons to flash on the screen, then press them. Might as well just make it a cinematic sequence if you're going to cop out on gameplay that much.

Gameplay - 9
Graphics - 7
Storyline - 7
Multiplayer - 5
