5.0 out of 5 stars Like going back in time. 29 Mar 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
Took me back to when games were fun, played it though twice, has everythng you want in an adventure game, oh the fun of using the bow and flaming arrows to take out the baddies is pure joy, im gonna try to complete it just using the bow.
Usually the controls on games like this are a bit dodgy but not here, every button you touch does what it says on the tin. I have been gaming since Alex Kidd on the master system so over 30 years, this game would be in my top 5,one gripe and that is I wish it was longer.

Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
So first off, let me establish something. This game is not classic tomb raider.

Ok so let's focus on what you get, Gameplay wise this game is excellent a few realism issues aside (weapon damage can be a tad inconsistent) the game features 3 main areas of play, They are:

Exploration, This side of the game has Lara scouting her surroundings looking for "Salvage" to upgrade her weapons and various collectable items that expand on story play or award trophies.

Combat, This is stealth / cover based shooting.

Puzzles, Various tombs usually require the player to solve a puzzle to unlock its secrets

Exploration is easy and fluid, you can run around jump to walls and clamber your way up without any break in immersion. You can use Lara's "Survival Instincts" to highlight nearby objects of interest such as salvage enemies or treasure items. At times exploration can be somewhat slow Climbing walls and ropes can take a rather long time. Very rarely I found that I would make a jump which I had not properly estimated resulting in death. The Acquisition of rope allows Lara to use her Bow and Arrow to launch a rope into certain targets which can then be zipped down. I find it slightly odd that something like that could hope to support the weight of anyone but it's not too great a stretch of the imagination and does not greatly affect immersion. Overall 4/5

Combat, This at times can be a little clunky, without a designated "use cover" button Lara tends to crouch behind nearby objects and occasionally it's hard to tell if you are actually in cover or not. As I said earlier weapon damage can be slightly inconsistent Head shots are not guaranteed kills. There is also a lot of Quick time event style combat moves that can at times be irritating.

4.0 out of 5 stars So how do you solve a problem like Lara? 2 July 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, you reboot the franchise using a company best known for top-selling games such as Deus Ex and its more recent prequel Human Revolution, as well as the infamous Final Fantasy series. Add Rihanna Pratchett as a writer (daughter of fantasy novelist Terry Pratchett - yes, he of the Discworld) and a heavy dose of Uncharted and you get a darker, more adult origin story that puts the player in the shoes (and full-length trousers and sensible strappy top) of a quieter, more introspective young Lara Croft.

All in all, it's a great effort. It's just so easy to get drawn into the game and its world. The areas you explore are nicely varied: from lush forest jungle to abandoned buildings to dirty, muck-filled, claustrophobic passages; there are also mountain villages and one very, very tall radio tower. The enemies are likewise varied, ranging from general pistol carrying cookie-cutter minions to snipers, molotov cocktail throwers and heavies, and they all need a different strategy to defeat. Combat, like climbing, is not terribly difficult, but it's nicely implemented. Lara has to build the weapons she needs, including a bow and arrows. Want to crank up the challenge? Try completing the game using nothing BUT the bow and arrows.

The game does depart quite dramatically from previous releases in several ways. Tackling an established and much-loved title and character comes with a certain amount of risk. How much do you change so that it feels fresh, and at the same time not alienate your core gaming audience whilst simultaneously making the game accessible to those who have never picked up a Tomb Raider game before? This is where the development and writing in the game really shine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant game, I didn't expect this at all 18 April 2013
By K. Trebell TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I should start by admitting I've never been a huge fan of Tomb Raider games and this was bought by my wife who did like them in the past as we saw it cheap at another retailer.

This game tells the story of Lara Crofts Origins, from callow young graduate explorer to the bad assed Tomb Raider she would become. It is a Tomb Raider game in it's DNA, there are puzzles, there's fantastic platforming, there are Tombs (albeit mostly optional and short) but there's also a change in focus to a more open feel and something much more akin to a modern third person action adventure like Uncharted (though personally I've found this so good I think Lara has claimed her crown back).

I had low expectations for this and wasn't at all excited but I really cannot recommend it enough. It races along there is constantly something new and fresh to keep you highly engaged and the story is more than good enough and the characters really good. Lara herself is voiced very professionally, spot on. A brilliant game and a bargain at this price.
