Graphics: Absolutely great
Voice Acting: Oscar caliber (I'm serious)
Story: Deep, Rich, and Engrossing
Characters: Completely believable
Once in a GREAT while, gamers can look forward to a game that redefines a genre. In this case, the new Tomb Raider does JUSt that for the Action/Adventure Genre.
The action is believable, yet intense. The scenarios are fluid and ever changing. By that I mean they are never the same scenery nor the same group of mobs attacking.
The fights and slinking around is so fresh from one to the next, that you are never bored. You look forward to the fact that each encounter will challenge your ability to assess and respond according to its OWN merits.
It's is easily THE most enjoyable gaming experience I have had in a LONG time, and I play games all day , every day.
I have ONE complaint about the new Tomb Raider. The level of professionalism and perfection in this game is SO high, it resets the bar. I will now compare subsequent games to this one. That i do not look forward to since gems like this are rare indeed.
Whether you buy or rent.....do yourself a favor and play this title....you will NOT regret it.
