Everyone is loosing their minds over this game, and I truly don't understand why. Yes the reboot of Lara's character is compelling. I love how vulnerable and inexperienced she is. But it's the environments and gameplay that lost me here. Have you guys PLAYED the Uncharted series? The adventure bar was raised years ago. Go back and replay ANY of the big set pieces in Uncharted 3, like the CARGO PLANE. Mind blowing right? Ok, now come back to Tomb Raider reboot and tell me what moment in the game even comes close to blowing your mind like that. I played the game for about 4 or 5 hours and was struck by the SMALLNESS of the environments. I found the gameplay boring and constricted. Sorry. Wasn't interested enough to continue.
This game was kinda boring. There were a lot of cut scenes. So many that it felt more like an interactive movie than a game. It also did the thing where when you're in a fight scene it would flash across your screen press triangle now. I hate that. It feels like I'm just following directions and not playing a game. Anyway, I do have some positive things to say about this game. First off, I really liked that Lara Croft didn't look like Angelina Jolie ;) and the graphics were great. Next, I really liked the parkour aspect of the game. It kinda reminded me of Mirrors Edge.

At first Glance I was excited, The intro really brings you in the game and is impressive with graphics n such. Then I realized that This game is just two games mixed together. Far cry 3 and Uncharted. The only thing new is Lara Croft herself........but Really? its the same ol " Oh youre stranded on an island and your friends get kidnapped, and everywhere you go something is crumbling before your feet so press Triangle QUICK!" deal............Stop it. This Game would be great for a kid who doesnt kno what Tomb Raider is all about but it felt too much like recent games .Hopefully now they can get back to what made tomb raider "Tomb Raider". Another thing. Man She gets TORE up and she still able to go through this adventure after going through all that? i guess she gas wolverines healing power, nice job guys
