I could never get into the older tomb raiders with the uncomfortable controls, bad camera, and just not that much character development. But I still wanted to give this one a try and I am glad I did this game is one of the best action adventure game I have played in a while, lasting about 8-12 hours with a good story and characters, I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good adventure to go on.

LARA CROFT IS BACK FOR VENGEANCE
The newest game in the Tomb Raider franchise has hit the stores and it is by far one of the best games of this year already.
Presentation - Lara and her crew of shipmates crash onto an unknown island with legends of the deep about bad luck and bad things happening there. Lara soon realizes that these legends are actually true. Lara gets viciously attacked by not madmen but also wolves and other animals in this vast jungle.
Gameplay - This is a survival shooter game. You can tell when you play this game that they took the basics for gameplay from the Uncharted series. The only difference is that this game executes the gameplay far better than Uncharted and Uncharted is a great franchise. The game keeps you alive and hooked in it with all of the buildings, planes, waterfalls, trees, vines, branches and just about everything else breaking and falling apart in slow motion. There is multiplayer in this game but it's still the story that shines brighter.
The Verdict - Tomb Raider is the game for true survival shooters. It takes mechanics from Uncharted and the survival mechanics from Far Cry 3, mixes it into one game, and you have one of the best games of this generation. I give Tomb Raider 9.5/10
