5.0 out of 5 stars Lara gets rebooted, but how does it fare? 17 Mar 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have had this game on my radar since it was announced several years ago. As a casual follower of the Tomb Raider franchise since Tomb Raider II, I was immediately intrigued, because I'd always felt that while the games were brilliant back in the 90s and early 00s, it seemed that interest in the young Miss. Croft had faded significantly in recent years. So I was fascinated to find out how a new, younger version of Lara would work in the context of a more modern, grittier story. So how did it do?

It's impossible to review Tomb Raider without first considering its modern competitors. The first, and most obvious of these, is the Uncharted series. When Uncharted was first announced back in the mid-00s, reviewers and gamers alike were quick to brand the game as a 'Tomb Raider knock-off'. And it was no surprise really; both series feature a strong lead character who is in search of a particular ancient treasure, trying to claim it before a stereotypically evil bad-guy gets his hands on it. Both series incorporate supernatural elements into an otherwise realistic world, and both borrow heavily from the Indiana Jones films. And it's true; Uncharted certainly owes some of its success to the 'Tomb Raider'-shaped hole that had opened up in the market, and turned out to be one of the greatest games series of the last decade.

But this isn't a review of Uncharted; it's a review of 2013's Tomb Raider. Ever since gameplay was shown, gamers have been labelling the reboot as an Uncharted 'clone'. And while it is certainly true that the vast majority of Uncharted fans will undoubtedly love Tomb Raider, the two games are not as alike as many gameplay videos or gamers would have you believe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, just not for me 15 Mar 2013
By Sam
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
To be honest I was disappointed with the game, but I can't in good conscience give it a bad review. The story is excellent and the concept and setting set the game perfectly. The dialogue is natural and gives me great confidence in Rhianna Pratchett doing great things with the upcoming television series The Watch. From the first tomb raider, the game has evolved, from being mostly about puzzle solving, with some gunfights to a more even mix. Less challenging puzzles, but more fighting. The game play here has almost done away completely with any puzzles. There's one or two that take a little thinking about but nothing like the vast monster that was sir francis's folly. Remember? The giant tower with the rooms leading off with Thor's Hammer? The game play itself is almost like a film. Long cutscenes, and when climbing, every few seconds control is taken from you to show her almost lose her grip. For the first hour it felt like I was watching a film but with minor input. This then gives way to what feels like wave after wave of bad guys.

If you're after a game where you can climb and gun down endless cult members, this is undoubtably a very good game for you. It's kind of more like uncharted than ever. If, like me, you were wanting puzzles that you can spend hours climbing around trying to find something in the room that has any effect on anything, I'm afraid it's time to get the ps1 back out of the attic.

Please, do not let me put you off this game, it is an exceptional example of what it is, just not my sort of game. Now I must go and lock the butler in the fridge!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Reboot that's worth it 9 Mar 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great game. I wasn't happy about the reboot as a long time Lara Croft fan but it won me over. The action and puzzles are seamless and it has a story that makes sense and is engaging. As for the new Lara she is a real character fully fleshed out and very likable.

If you liked Far Cry and Uncharted you will like this game. It has the sense survivor element as Far Cry with well executed actions scenes that are actually better than Uncharted.

A definite buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Straight To The Point Review 6 Mar 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got TOMB RAIDER yesterday and have only stopped playing it to eat and sleep, the game is truly amazing! First off the gameplay is great and the animations are also very good, graphics are very impressive and the sound is superb.
Now this is a reboot so i wasn't surprised that the game ain't nowhere near as hard as the original TR on PS1 (which is my favorite in the series, didn't like the rest!), but for reviewers to give this game 1/5 or 2/5 is just crazy! I'm a fan of the original but i am also a hardcore gamer and know when i play sumthing special and this is exactly that, i treat this game as a stepping stone for our heroine LARA to learn her skills and transform into the RAIDER we all love as this is an ORIGIN STORY!

I have yet to play the multiplayer so i really cant comment on that, but i did buy this game for its singleplayer campaign!

For me this game and NI NO KUNI are the best games of this year so far, CRYSIS 3 was good but these two are of a superior caliber!

Thankyou for reading! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic reboot. 8 Mar 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been a big fan of the Tomb Raider franchise since it's initial release on the Sega Saturn back in '96 and loved every entry in the series that CORE Design developed. Yes, even Angel of Darkness. When the reigns were handed to Crystal Dynamics I feel the games took a massive slump. Legend was utter tripe, Anniversary was average at best and Underworld needs to burn in the pits of hell. Needless to say I was not impressed with Crystal's lacklustre attempts. So naturally, I was sceptical when this new Tomb Raider was announced. Even more so being the third reboot of the franchise.

So. Now I have played through and completed the single player I can safely say that this game is just fantastic. Crystal have finally managed to create a decent TR game!

Story -
Unlike previous games in the franchise, this title is heavily story driven. It's a dark and gritty tale of overcoming mystical, horrific and insane odds whilst desperately trying to find a way to save her friends and escape the island of Yamatai. The story itself is told well, with additional tidbits revealed in documents scattered about the island.

Graphics -
The game is beautiful and highly detailed. Definitely one of the best looking games I have seen in a while. The lighting is superb, more so when it's day time with the sun beaming beautifully down on the island. The PC version in particular is one of the most graphically impressive games available.

Gameplay -
The games play well and the controls are easy to pick up. Lara will automatically assume a 'cautious' stance when enemies are detected and thus automatically take cover when within range of low walls, etc.
The emphasis on survival is lost pretty soon after the game begins though sadly.
