The graphics are phenomenal and very smooth. Some of the cut scene interactions are more difficult than they need to be, like the parachute through the pines and the ride down the rapids, but overall it was terrific. Best game I've played on Xbox so far. The story was well-written, engaging and kept me up till 3AM nightly wanting to see what comes next. As soon as I finished it I used my Gamefly reward bucks to buy it. Very fun and very well done.
From the start to finish an incredible game, great story, which will keep you interested until the end, beautiful scenery, amazing cut scenes, I could go on and on...Camilla Luddington should play the role of Lara Croft in the next movie adaptation!

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.
