It was nonstop action! I really like games that are more relaxed, but this was great! I love sniper games, so the arrows were cool also! I just finished so now I guess it's back to Far Cry. I can take my time on Far Cry!

Good

Good, but too unoriginal to be great

Well, it plays exactly like Uncharted meets Arkham City, so basically it's Uncharted 3. Only, without the ridiculous level of polish of those two games.

Don't get me wrong, the effort is apparent, and almost everything is done well. The collectibles are cleverly hidden to encourage exploration, the difficulty level is moderate (maybe a little too low), and the game is fun. However, Uncharted had the added benefit of the best voice cast ever assembled for a game, and Arkham City had the bleeping Batman. The new Lara is not on that level, at least not yet.

Definitely worth a play if you are a fan of Uncharted or Rocksteady's Batman games, as it is nearly identical.

Tomb Raider PS3

Great game! Multiplayer is really weak with bad match making and not many people playing, but the single player campaign was awesome!

This is the best 3rd person action-adventure game I've played on PS3. The story was great, with top notch voice acting that never takes away from the game.

Controlling Lara Croft in her environment and swinging and climbing over buildings and zip lines is very satisfying. The gunplay in this game is very fun and the shotgun is extremely brutal.

I was never a fan of the old Tomb Raiders but this game completely revitalized Lara Croft! Can't wait to check out the next game featuring Lara especially if its made by the same folks. This game would be a 10 if the multiplayer was more entertaining.
