I just finished this game on Easter Sunday and I could not put it down. I have played many tomb raider games before but nothing like this. The developers of this game took their time into making this into a great game. This game sucks you in and makes you want to finish it.
You really DO care about Lara Croft and the other characters she's protecting in this one; more so than the other games you've ever played before. You feel like you share her ultimate goal in survival and getting home. There are brief glimmers of hope and than it all crashes down. There were many moments I started to cry because I wanted her make it and I was dying to make it to the end to see how it unfolds. This feels like a movie you're playing by the way this game is designed.
This game is a wild ride that never stops. It'll make you cry and make work hard just to get to end. It is a beautifully game visually. This game worth the rent and so worth the playing time. If you read this review I hope my advice is taken and you play this game. I promise you won't go wrong. I really enjoyed this game and if you're a tomb raider fan I know you will enjoy this game too.
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.
