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

Horrible

Complete waste of time

There are multiple issues with this game.

Lets start with the cinematic breaks. For the first hour of the game I felt like I was watching a poorly acted, B-rate film. I started to wonder if I accidentally rented a movie and not a game.

Secondly the button mashing.

Why in the world would you create a game where every few minutes you need to repeated twirl a joystick or maniacally cram buttons to get some result? It was annoying when they first thought of it and its just as bad now.

So between the obnoxious scene breaks and interruptions with button mashing, you cannot walk "50 feet" in this game without getting annoyed. They have completely forgotten what Tomb Raider used to be and they barely even paid homage..

I would suggest you do not waste your time on the game. Maybe, MAYBE if you have the two game package but now its Saturday and I have to wait at least 3 days to replace this dud... not worth it!
