While probably too similar to Uncharted (is that a bad thing?), this game successfully reboots the Tomb Raider franchise. The story and characterization are at times sublime, particularly for Lara Croft. The graphics, gameplay, and voice acting are top notch and assists both the story and setting in feeling both genuinely moving and real. The only gripes with this stellar game are the lack of quality characterization for Lara's party and the rather rushed feeling of Lara never having killed to slaughtering hundreds by the conclusion. Aside from these minor gripes, this was a superlative experience and will most likely be a game of the year contender.
