Everything in this game was better than I expected. The graphics, the effects, the story, it can' be put into words. You just have to experience it for yourself.
Also, to the reviews comparing this to Uncharted...of course its similar to Uncharted. Thats like complaining that Call of Duty and Battlefield feel similar. Apples to apples. Where this game really stands out is the story. Watching Lara develop from a helpless girl into the hero. Never thought a Tomb Raider game could be so thrilling.
If you play this game and it doesn't impress you then you don't have a pulse.
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.
