I was a little skeptical to give Tomb Raider a try but boy am I glad I did. Tomb Raider will keep you on the edge of your seat and keep you wondering what will happen to poor Laura Croft next. I would say the only real flaw is that it's to easy, even on the hardest difficulty. Still if you are looking for an action packed, thrill ride then Tomb Raider is for you!
I give Tomb Raider a 9/10 because the story is done wonderfully, challenges are challenging enough that you want to complete them, but not so difficult that they just frustrate you. This open-world type of play allows you to fast travel to different areas of the island and explore where you want, which is much different than previous TR games I've played, and let me feel a little more in control.
My only issue with the game is the QTEs-- never have been a fan of them and in the beginning of the game, there were quite a few to get through. Thankfully, as the game progressed, they became fewer and far between.
I remember when tomb raider was about the mythical stuff you'd find like the hand of Midas or Excalibur Thors hammer now its like shooting every two feet. for one thing the only exploring in the game is these little caves that have one puzzle and a chest with a gun part or loot and that's supposed to be a tomb!? are you serious!! And whatever happened to fighting other animals besides wolfs like bears, tigers, panthers, and getting eaten by Parana's.Another thing is there no heath anymore its just screen going red OMG they even took out swimming. what happened to heath kits that still could have been used and in a much more realistic way.Some of the game play elements like hunting are cool but completely useless because you don't need to keep fed.Also like i said theirs injueres she gets pretty beat up but theirs no bandaging yourself up or anything. Ultamitly the game has good graphics and solid shooting and an interesting story line but that's it. so yeah not really a tomb raider game.
