4.0 out of 5 stars Survival Edition, 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Tomb Raider alongside Bioshock Infinite are undoubtedly the best games I've ever played this year on my PC. I ran Tomb Raider on a Phenom II X6, a AMD firepro v4800 graphic card for a 1920x1200 IPS monitor and it worked fine and with plenty of detail - this game like Bioshock, it's a game about detail, the astonishing environment, the sound, the enemies AI and Lara's hand touching the walls while running, just to name few... This particular edition is worth the extra money because you get a little art book with amazing illustrations as well codes for the full soundtrack download and a extra weapon Pack. I did miss some extra packs that are available on Steam if you pay for it. But if you are somehow an old date follower of the Tomb Raider series this Survival Edition may be the balanced choice for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not gory, just simple, experimental and a bit scary, 28 Sep 2010
The House of the Devil is one of those rare films in the world of horror genre. It is true that after watching it I got very intrigued with the fact that in this realistic but gloomy world created by Ti West there are place for mixer taps (with a single handle mixer) in the 80's! but that's fine 'cause it's just a experimental B movie with some cool references to the classics.
If I may say that Se7en has changed the way of making horror movies, both in terms of stylistic and narrative, dare I say then The House of the Devil is like a return to the old and classical way but with minimalist contours never seen before in such type of films. To me it's a true masterpiece to the level of Polanski's Rosemary's Baby or Hitchcock's Psycho. On the other hand and if you liked the Saw saga for instance, probably this is not a film for you, just wait for the next one to come.
