I havnt played any Tomb Raider games since they were still on the PS1. But comparing those to this, i liked those better. First of all i get pretty scared from about any game where its mostly in the dark, so if you get scared from dark games too, you might want to not play this one. Its not the most scary game ever made but since its based upon ruins and things like that i get freaked out. I also noticed something that i LOVE about this game and that is if you die, in most cases you respawn very close to the point where you died and you can keep spawning forever. Also you dont run out of pistol ammo with comes in handy. Another really nice thing if you get stuck in this game is you can go to your PDA (Back button) and go down to one of the options and itll give you two hints on what to do next. I really wish this feature was in the Lego games because i spend hours walking around trying to figure out what to do next. The graphics are pretty average. Or maybe just a bit better than average. Also if your a guy and you just play this game so you can watch Lora Croft run around, she looks very nice in this game. And sometimes she barely wears anything. Overall if your a Tomb Raider fan go ahead and rent this game. Otherwise just play some other game because you prouble wont like this game, besides watching Lora Croft.
The graphics are beautiful, though. What hurts thsi game is the poor controls with grappling and the camera not being able to rotate to see where Lara would jump to. I probably died a dozen times trying to get from one wall on a grapple to another ledge just right behind me. These type of annoyances make a game a chore to finish even though the puzzles are pretty fun. This is a rental for sure, you'd have to be a diehard Tomb Raider fan to buy this.
