I personally loved the game. It was my favorite of the whole Tomb Raider series. The controls are easy to get the hang of, which is a good thing because the puzzles can get kinda hard. You don't want to be focusing too much on what to press when you're trying to solve a puzzle, right? There weren't any boss battles, and I can see how that could upset some people, but I actually preferred. I was never a fan of boss battles. I really like the puzzle solving. And the graphics were astounding! It really took me to where Lara was exploring, and I KNOW it made me want to go explore there too. All in all, I think it's a great game depending on your tastes.
The main reason that I wanted to play this game was for the story. A lot of things about the previous Tomb Raiders had always made me angry (camera, not being able to jump to things that seem to be reachable, etc.), but in this one everything is much more accessible. I will admit the camera still has some problems, but it is definitely playable. Not to mention the story line. The cut scenes have always been Tomb Raider's best quality, and this game is definitely no exception. This is a great game. An easy 10.
