The single player campaign is great, very easy to get involved in. Really looking forward to a sequel to this one. The multiplayer leaves something to be desired however, it's ok for a while, but gets very bland after a while. Oh and unless you want to spend a week or more getting the 1000 gamerscore for this game, or if you're one of those people that HAS to get every achievement in a game... plan on being very bored for a while. While there is a cheap way to raise MP experience to streamline the process of leveling, it still takes forever to raise to level 60 3 times and then to 58 in order to get the "shopaholic" achievement. In other words, if you want all achievements, you are FORCED to play multiplayer for quite a long time. Only gripe about the game really.
I am not the biggest fans of the Tomb Raider series. I played the PC version back in 96 and after that I have really felt like it was a lost opportunity. Until now. This is a great game on it's own. Forget what you know about Tomb Raider and get ready for a thrill ride and more than a reboot. My favorite game of 2013 so far. Even if you are not a fan give this one a try.
The first thing I will say is that the graphics are real clear & defined. The details of the game are good. The water look like water, the grass looks like grass and so on and so forth. The story line is awesome! What I specifically liked about the story line was how they went into the background of Laura from before she was an actual tomb raider. Game play gave you a lot of objectives to accomplish, so there wasn't a stand still in the game. The action was non-stop! I was never bored with the game play. The only downfall to the game that I found so far was the multiplayer mode. So if you're use to playing 'Call Of Duty" type multiplayer games this wouldn't appeal to you. But the game play and story line of the campaign was good, after beating it I wasn't left with feeling lost with what happened within the story. By the end you will be waiting and wanting for the 2nd part! All in all the game play, graphics, and sound was up to my standards. I would rate this a 10 for game play and graphics, but a 7 for the multiplayer mode. Its worth getting!
