Very Good

Beauty, action and...script?

Tomb Raider is a beautiful game, (not to mention Lara herself is the perfect looking woman. Almost every player will fall in love with her). The direction of the game is so free and yet constrains the player enough to not feel lost and become an open world game. The action is on quality blockbuster material, in which you won't find on another game this year. The length of the game is at an even end, making you feel like wanting more but still satisfied.

The script writing isn't the greatest and the story doesn't fascinate one so much. Hyperbolic myths and obscure relationships muddle the story into some sort gathering of strangers who happen to be stranded on an island together. The antagonist Mathias is much too typical, (reminds me of a less characteristic Salazar from RE4), and the main boss too implausible. Of course though, it's a Tomb Raider game: the story will literally be incredible.

Overall the game is fun in every sense and aesthetically pleasing in every sense, if you know what I mean (wink wink, Lara). Not to mention multiplayer mode ain't too shabby! If you get it, you won't regret it; but give it a test drive before buying it.

Everything in the game looks real and gameplay flows after you get down the simple controls. Some puzzles got me frustrated(that's why i rated a 9) But after a quick google search i was back to playing an awesome game that did not make me lose interest.

This game is similar to the last of us. It is a very good game. Lara is hot and you get to kill people! Love it.
