This is the first time I have every collected every item in an an adventure game. I was motivated to do this because I was collecting rewards toward upgrading weapons. When I "finished" the game I was at 95% so I could not resist.
The best thing about this game is its intuitive UI which is both forgiving AND gives you a sense that you are really leaping and climbing.
My only criticism is that the story was not very good, but longtime fans may disagree with me on that.
Tomb Raider is one of the best games I have ever played! It had the classic elements of what makes the franchise in the puzzles and eerie tombs, while keeping the content fresh and contemporary. Each dirty encounter left Laura dirty, cut, and covered in mud; which only washed away with the rain. The fighting was appropriate, albeit not challenging but fun.
The ease of play was astonishing to make it accessible for even brand new gamers (your girlfriend would love this!).
What impacted me the most was how the game played out like a movie. The cut scenes were fluid and added to the story, your emotions go through highs and lows and really grab you, the action was fun and exciting, and the landscape.. wow..
Grab this one and try not to play it through in one go, I couldn't look away. Just amazing
