Being a somewhat older gamer I found TR to be a good game, but not worthy of a 9+ rating. Graphics were good, movement was good and story line was ok. The game did make you think a little in deciding paths and angles to solve problems.
The fighting sequences quickly became redundant with little variation in the attacks and lulls in fighting. The big boss fights were unimaginative and the ending was boring.
Overall a good game for the rent, but nothing especially new or overly challenging.
