Get the funk out of the way Unchrated, Tomb Raider is back and blew me away and gives Uncharted a run for its tresure. 10/10 in my book a must play !

Excellent

More believable. No longer innocent.

Well, we've always known Lara was a killer, but up until this reboot of the series that point never really was driven home. The grittiness of this game destroys the image of an innocent, tomb raiding Lara that many fell in love with in the mid-90's, and replaces it with a much more believable young girl that is forced to do some very naughty things. Yes, this Lara will still shot you in the face. But, she'll also cry a regretful tear afterwards.

Her sense of disgust from the actions she's forced to take are conveyed convincingly via current gen tech, and at times the graphics are able to reach near photo-realistic levels. Make no mistake about it, this is one good looking game. The same can't be said for Lara however, who starts off looking cute enough but soon gets covered in mud, blood (hers and other peoples'), crud,.... and did I mention blood? Yes, this girl bleeds it, gets splattered with it, and at times even swims in pools of it. If you couldn't tell, this game is very gory. It's definitely not for the weak of heart and earns its "M" rating well.

Also, Lara should be a poster child for the virtues of a diet containing high amounts of calcium and vitamin D, because this chick takes some extreme tumbles let me tell ya, yet still doesn't ever manage to break a bone or two, or three,... or twelve. Sure she gets cut, scraped, punctured, and even shot, but she sure could give Wolverine a run for his money in the unbreakable bones department.

All in all, I'm having some fun with this game. I definitely find it more pleasing than the Devil May Cry reboot, however that's not saying much because I wasn't expecting too much with that one. Since this generation of consoles is winding to a close, Tomb Raider will be one of those games that people in the not too distant future will look back on as an example of what the Xbox 360 and PS3 were capable of.

I played the game and it took me 6 days to complete the game without game book, used walkthrough guide but the next game Lara needs to be older and at least have infinite ammo on side guns
