I'm going to be very short on this review, I want you guys to find out how amazing this game is on your own. Oh, and before I start if you love the Uncharted series, and some Gears of War gore, you're going to enjoy this!!!!
Pros+ A beautiful and exotic open-world location.
The pace of the game, will have you glued to the T.V.
Lara Croft Is LARA CROFT!!! Believable in every way.
The games storyline is rich and deep. Heart-Racing.
Cons- As I was playing I didn't find that many bugs just a few.
It takes a while till the game actually starts.
Lastly, just the multiplayer was a bore. Not Interesting.
This was an amazing experience, and I am definitely itching that they keep this series going. It was dark, bloody, and heroic everything I wanted in a Tomb Raider. If you were ever a fan of the classics' prepared to be in aww..

Back in 1996 the original Tomb Raider was released on the first Playstation with wild success. Now, 17 years later we are treated to the reboot of the franchise that goes by the same name. Developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix, Tomb Raider puts you in the boots of a young, inexperienced Lara Croft as she searches for a lost empire within the Dragon's Triangle just south of Japan. Things quickly go awry as a storm hits the ship, beaching Lara and other crew members on a a nearby island that is as diverse as the characters. With dense jungles, snowy mountain peaks, and cities from a forgotten time, the island lends itself to Laura's arsenal of abilities, some of which she learns through a level-up system that doesn't take away from the game. Along with her new abilities comes new weaponry which are also upgradeable with the game's currency, scrap which you obtain in small boxes, off of bodies, and through gathering the plenty of well placed collectables. Tight controls make for some fun and exhilarating action sequences along with enjoyable platforming that feels as if it is your fault if you didn't make the jump. The game also features a multiplayer that uses the exact same mechanics from the singleplayer, but feels a bit tacked on for the sake of having it. The modes are the usual team deathmatch, and free for all;Though it also includes "Rescue" in which one team tries to capture medical supplies while the other tries to stop them, and "Cry For Help" which is basically territories. This game isn't perfect, however, with quick time events and multiplayer that seem unnecessary, characters that end up being very predictable, and the beyond ridiculous things that happens to Lara make this game miss just shy of the perfect mark for me.In conclusion Tomb Raider is a fun ride with amazing visuals, controls, and a story that kept me enthralled for hours on end.

I must say the single player aspect of it blew me out of the water. The puzzles weren't too complicated but complex enough for you to use your brain. The combat system can use a little more work even though I do enjoy the features that it already has. The voice acting was superb they definitely choosed the right casts. My only complaint is the multiplayer. I don't like it. Some other people may find the joy in it but I can't. None the less that still doesn't steal the thunder away from this game. I love the story so far and can't wait for the next game. Crystal Dynamics has establish a great relaunch to this beloved series but they have much work to do for the next Tomb Raider and I can't wait!
Also, I have to give them props on the new look for Lara. I'm glad that she doesn't have a skimpy outfit with sized Z breasts. It was a turnoff in the previous games but now she looks more desireable, more powerful and badarse. She's now an actual character with a story, a heroine, rather than just a $3x symbol in the previous game. And that is more of a turn on than her butt taking up more than half of the screen.
