As a fan of the old tomb raiders long ago I was wondering how they would go about remaking this title. Let me tell you this is the BEST reboot I have ever played! From the opening cave scene you will be hooked. Everything is masterfully done, from the controllable cinematic scenes and events to the gunfighting and exploring. Controls are smooth and fluid and are easy to master. The skills and weapon upgrading are awesome. I especially liked the way your weapons change appearance as they upgrade, the attention to details in this game are great. The story is amazing and the landscapes and views are some of the best to date for a video game. If you are a fan of uncharted/resident evil/dead space/prince of persia any good third person games TOMB RAIDER blows them away. I give this game a 10 theres nothing negative about it at all other than the fact that it leaves you wanting the next one NOW! Great job Crystal Dynamics/Square enix/Edios for bringing Lara back with a big bang.

From the moment the opening scene starts, you are hooked. Everything about this game is epic. Controls, voice acting, story, game play, superb detailed graphics and weapons are all extremely well done. The transition into each section of the game is so smooth that you can't tell the difference from a cut scene to game play. It's very easy to learn how to use your weapons and upgrade from all the salvage part you collect. I also like how the developers made it very speedy when you're looting caches and dead bodies so that it doesn't slow down the game at all. It's tiny details like that which makes the game that much better. I've also never had so much fun using a bow as a weapon before. Silently sneaking up on someone and putting an arrow through the back of their skull is awesome! The time and effort put into the gorgeous detail to show the depth of the island you're on is absolutely amazing! Not to mention the replay value...there are so many collectibles, hidden tombs, documents, letters, challenges and treasures to discover that keep you hunting the island for hours. Tomb Raider deserves a solid 10/10 and anyone out there that hasn't picked this game up yet should quickly do so because this game isn't a renter, it's a definite buy! Can't wait to see what's next for Lara Croft! Good job on the reboot!!
