Top Notch Excitement

This game has everything that I love.
The graphics and setting are amazing, the soundtrack gets your blood pumping.
Even the quiet moments when you are entering a dark tomb, squeezing into the small space between boulders and can only hear Lara's haggard breathing produce a fear response that made me realize my heart was beating faster and I was short of breath.
I loved the collectibles too. If you found the treasure maps, you could get them all without too much difficulty. The challenges were a bit more difficult and required keen observation, but I didn't feel they were impossible and online guides were helpful if you get stuck.
Overall, however, the pacing of the game keeps you GLUED to the game for hours. It was literally impossible for me to stop playing it. You get to one area, clear it of enemies piece by piece, hunt around for stuff, then get treated to Hollywood-level excitement as the next area's scene is set.
Another plus is that you actually LEARN stuff about the ancient Japanese kingdom of Yamatai, and some of their culture too. This adds to the coolness factor.
I haven't played multiplayer, and may not, but I don't care. You need to rent this game, if for no other reason than to EXPERIENCE it.

This was a great game, but I never got to finish it because it glitches and I got stuck 63% through the game. Apparently there are a lot of glitches though. I'd wait to get this till they patch some of these problems.
