this wasnt what i was expecting when i rented this title, first off the tombs are optional.. why call it tomb raider, she keeps getting hurt, falling alot, and seems to be fine like 2 minutes after, to many enemies come at you its an island and theres that many people there?, not enough stealth either. where are the puzzles? 6 outta 10 stars.
The makers definitely did a good job of creating Laura Croft from the school she starts out as to the gun slinging action hero we know her as today! Don't go into this game thinking that its just another Tomb raider. This is a great way to revive the franchise. The game play is smooth 95% of the time. There is a lot of in play videos that seem to slow the game down but it doesn't change my review. Some of the enemies are repetitive, its like they just changed their clothes. Great weapon upgrades and character attributes. And most importantly the voice actress who voices Miss Croft (Camilla Anne Luddington) Did an excellent job! Enjoy!

well the game was done not too great and not too bad. they hardly give any back information on the other characters it would've been helpful if they did so you can feel a bit of sadness when the time came. i didn't feel anything when the characters died. the game also couldve had new game plus as well. the mp is so terrible and is poorly done. they shouldve stuck to the main story instead copying "The Last Of Us' tomb raider game of the year? highly unlikely maybe if it was done better it couldve been a contender for it. soooo many things wrong with the mp. maybe with next gen coming it'l be done different. but as far as game of the year is really impossible for that to even happen. so play the last of us instead graphics are way better, mp is awesome, story-line is superb on the last of us. no flaws in that game. so this game is a rent not a buy.
