Some games out there have little side missions which seem pointless but this games and their tomb raid side misson puzzels keep you looking for more. The reason i gave it an eight is because it has the power to have an awsome multiplayer but the only time i tried to play multiplayer i waited over ten minutes before i gave up waiting. Highly recommend.
I never tried any of the old Tomb Raider games but this game is outstanding! Great gameplay with a mix of action, stealth and even horror elements makes it an experience that hasn't been matched for me in a while! I was on the edge of my seat from the beggining!
