Awesome game and graphics. This is the first time I got into the Tomb Raider series and now I am hooked to the series. Best game so far really feels like you are on a stranded island. The game always puts you on your toes and I love the side missions and searching for relics and documents, adds it's own unique style. Awesome Game!
If you liked Uncharted, you will enjoy this game. Solid combat mechanics. Linear tale on rails, but any intriguing ride nevertheless. You'll come back for the game-play and exploration.
Story was so-so and other than Lara herself, you don't much care about the rest of the cast. Good news is the majority of the game and pacing is done well with Lara alone, and the mechanics of play are enough to keep you wanting to figure out what happens next. Overall, it was fun to play, but after having just beaten Bioshock 3, the story of TR was a mediocre comparison at best.
