Great Game - BAD Road to a Platinum

Well this game is pretty darn good. I really enjoyed the gameplay the entire time through. I watched my fiancee play it and then I would play and catch up to her. We took turns and it never got dull. That is... until I started caring about the platinum trophy and my overall trophy completion rate. Yes, the plat is nearly impossible (without going insane) to get.

The reason for a hard platinum is the crazy amount of time you have to spend in Multiplayer (which is a useless and boring mode). Not enough people are online to make it worth it at all, so you'll wait 20 minutes in between matches sometimes.

But the kicker is not getting to level 60. Oh no. It's basically getting to Level 60... 3 times before you're able to unlock the last character. Just making it to level 60 with an exploit that makes it a bit faster takes around 10 hours. Nearly all of the MP trophies are a pain.
So if you're looking for a great story and gameplay, go for it!
If are a trophy hunter like me (I also enjoy story), then dont bother trying for the all rewarding platinum.

It's hard to explain everything that is great about this new Tomb Raider. There is many things it does not have from other Tomb Raiders but at the same time it adds so much more than previous Tomb Raiders.

Combat is much more involved and you won't get by with just button mashing like all previous versions.

The annoying puzzles every 15 seconds are gone. You have 1 large area to explore at your leisure and do what you want (as you progress in the story anyways). If you find yourself needed a stronger weapon, you can go back a few camps and kill easier things until you build up some points to purchase them.

The graphics are stunning. I found myself looking at the background way too much during my first play through and I ended up missing key button presses or signs an enemy was coming.

One of the few GameFly games I'm considering buying.
