Oh my freaking gosh! This game is by the far the best out there! I love puzzle-solving, hidden object games as well as games that have some thrill to it and not the thrill all the way through kind of thing. This was top notch! And I'm not a fan of first-person shooters, but this was a game that was as engaging as the hidden object games (e.g. Big Fish type) are with story plots. In the beginning it doesn't seem like there is anything that will jump out at you like Tomb Raider games, but hold onto your controller because that is just the beginning of the game and you'll see for yourself! It took me about 15 hours to complete the game. The environment is beautiful. It's almost like you are there because it's so surreal. Because of the amazing graphic features and the way you are pulled into the game I am so looking forward to the second game of this series! I don't even want to skip to the last game because I like the way this story pans out! It's also very challenging to the point that you want to give up, but if you hold on or have someone else play through the very scary difficult spots (like my husband did for me ha ha because it was a very intense part of the game) you will find yourself getting better as a player and more aware of your surroundings. That being said, I think this game has a good balance of everything that makes an awesome game! I like it better than Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider to me has always been like one of those hidden jewel finds.
