How much would you want to Raid this Tomb?

Ok so I have to say that I was not impressed at all with this new installation of the Tomb Raider series. The game has some really neat features that were taking from other games but doesn’t quite get it as right as the other game. Like the wall climbing was cool but often very sluggish and not as near as smooth as in Assassins Creed. The colorful environments really took me back to Uncharted Drakes Fortune but didn’t come close to looking as good. This game was very glitchy! For instance it was very cool fighting tigers and panthers but when you decided to take on a human adversary the fun stopped quick! It was almost like kicking paper enemies around. You hit them and they fly back and keep sliding. There were about 10 enemies you fought per stage until the final two but even then there were only two different type of enemies to take on. The main enemies were the stages their self. It was like playing a giant brain game which was very fun but by the ending of the game I just wanted it to be over with. The story was neat but it could have been a bit more CGI scenes. Over all it was a average game that was fun but
I would not want to play again. Game Fly is the perfect way to play this game.

I really enjoyed the visual aspect of the game. The graphics are amazing and the controls are much easier compared to Tomb Raider's of the past. Overall I believe this is a good game, its just not my style. There is too much wandering around trying to figure things out and not enough action for my taste. If you enjoy exploring and trying to figure out puzzles then this is the perfect game for you. The game and scenery remind me of Uncharted but the game play in my opinion is not as fun and exciting as Uncharted.

Shes back with a game that looks beautiful. The environments are huge and the puzzles, while they're not as difficult as past Tomb Raider games, are positively massive. All of the enemy bodies stay where they fall (no fading corpses!), this way you know where youve been. The combat element has been reduced dramatically making the games main focus exploration. There is not a single boss fight, something I consider a wise decision. The only problem with the game, as with most platformers, is the camera. It will zoom in a lara making it hard to navigate or get lost behind objects. The later happened very few times but its worth metioning. You discover more about lara's family which helps link the game to past titles. I do have to say- this is not an action title- It's exploration based gameplay.
