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

I am only 25% thru but I love this so far, its especially good for me because I am very disabled so I cant go out and when I play this (I use 2d to 3d tv) I feel like i am in a cave with dripping water or in a temple like im there. I only wish they had made it in real 3d. The parts I dont like are the few times where you have to exactly punch buttons in sequence and if you dont you die and have to do it over and over about 6 times! That was unnecessary. I do love the way you can make your own decisions for the most part on where you want to go and what you want to do. You could play this over and over and have a different experience almost every time! AWESOME!
