FIRST AND FOREMOST: This game reminds me a lot of Uncharted 2, but more depth and fun gadgets,
I'm not going to break it down into graphics, soundtrack etc. because everyone else has already done it. Bottom line: whether or not you've heard of tomb raider, you have to check this game out. I haven't really played any of the older games and I fell in love with this game.
Things I love in games that this game has:
Upgradable gear (nice and clean cut upgrades)
Skill trees that aren't overwhelming.
I usually NEVER backtrack for collectibles but for this game I did it just for fun.
And that's just the Campaign. Multiplayer is very balanced IMHO. Gotta earn weapons but the first perk you start off with is earning extra exp so it fits nicely.
I have personally put in over 26 hours into this game i enjoyed this game so very much. I found all the collectibles and tombs and i never got bored during the game. The replayability gets kinda low after you find all the collectibles buts its also fun to go threw and blow the bad guys away. Im not a big fan of the multiplayer modes i was also kinda bummed that the lack of map choices. Other than that this game is amazing and beautiful. Im giving this game a 9/10 only reason for not the 10/10 was because the multiplayer is lacking and did not catch my attention. But that's just me
