Ever since beating Indiana Jones and the Emperors Tomb 4 times last console generation on PC I was never able to find another game that had the archeology and action/adventure that worked for me. This game meets that requirement and goes beyond what I have seen a Single player experience do. The game is so well done in every aspect making it a truly immersive experience. Give it a Play, Crystal Dynamics has a gem of a reboot on their hands.

No filter so don't play around the kids.
I'm a HUGE fan of the franchise. I have actual leather custom-made holsters and airsoft pistols. When I saw this presented at E3 I SERIOUSLY had doubts. It wasn't "Tomb Raider-ish". The demo they presented didn't look nor have the feel. I wanted the franchise to stay true to the previous games with the exception of Angel of Darkness. Yuck! But wow...I was so wrong. The 1st few minutes of gameplay has me hooked. My sincere apologies Crystal Dynamics. And yes. It took me all this time to try it out. I don't have complaints but perhaps they could've or should've done what they did with Underworld. Enabling Lara to shoot while balancing or climbing. Perhaps they have that function in the upcoming. And hopefully she explores tomb(s) in the next to stay true to the franchise. Hense "Tomb Raider".

As in the review, Great story and graphics. Has a very smooth transition from controlling Lara to cut scenes. It kept me hooked on what's going to happen next.
Very beautifully of a game and had some suspense in the story. Enjoyed almost every minute of it.
The only down fall that I feel I need to give it. It has the cut scene actions of, quick...hit X, or Y..or whatever. didn't make me feel it was challenging enough. And if you messed up...oh well it saved you back a few seconds ago. So I would have preferred a bit more of a challenge to it, and more tombs/dungeons to explore as well. And when you beat the game, I feel it doesn't have enough replay ability. Fine go back and search for the missing items, but you aren't met with any resistance.
