This game has to be this years greatest so far when it comes to a reboot. The story had me wanting to go even further into it and not stop exploring all the island. There is a lot to do just in the single player as in hidden tombs and gps caches. Visually,it is beautiful to look at and I really enjoy all the landscapes and climate changes the game brings. Now the multiplayer is like the uncharted which I have fun with for a few days then I can not play without a friend on my team which,on its own,is very difficult since you can not have a party but they have to just jump in through invite. This can be frustrating at times due to them appearing on the opposite team, not bad some times if you want to see who is better,or you are already in a full lobby and have to constantly search out a game that is about to start or has few teammates. All that said this game was amazing and will be added to my buy list once I can do so.

Tomb Raider overall was an amazing re-boot for the franchise. It had absolutely beautiful scenery, a very deep and well written story, and a decent open world feel to it. One of the main flaws of the games campaign was that it was a bit of a rail ride. On normal mode the game seemed very easy and felt like it didn't take a lot of skill to complete. A bit movie-esque. There were multiple times where the game would cut to a cut scene without you really knowing because all you were doing was holding up or X. This is all being a bit nit picky of course, and overall the game was a very good experience. I just hope for a longer campaign in the next title for the franchise.

Lara is back, and better than ever. What an outstanding experience, top to bottom (pun intended). Lara is both beautifully done, and emotionally engaging. Surprises abound at every turn. A great experience that, almost, brings back memories of old. The controls are not as clean as past version of the game, but other than that, its a great game. 9/10
