Lara Croft Back from the Dead,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tomb Raider: Collectors Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
With this edition you get everything packed in the white survivor tin, on opening it you will see some cover art which is hiding the Lara croft figurine which is a very detailed figurine with props such as the bow and additional hands to change weapons.
On removing the figurine you will see the survival edition box which looks awesome with the cover art it has on the front. Within the box you will find a survival pouch which could be used store whatever you see fit which also comes with a neck lead which can be attached or removed as required.
A Map of the Island is provided though its a shame its in black and white and not in colour,it also gives brief descriptions of the island which you will get to know as you play the game. On the other side of the map you get a poster of Lara.
You will also the find the art book in here which is a hardback which includes art work of scenes, places and people from the game.
You will find the copy of the game here as well(includes the Hitman weapons pack for the game and the download code for the music) which is in the standard PS3 case with the standard art cover as the standard edition. The shanty town code will be sent by Amazon.
I found the game to be thrilling and on your first play through you will really get emotionally attached with the story and Lara and everything that happens to her and around her. you could class this game as an action/adventure/thriller/horror as it is an intense experience.
The game play is good there is a good balance between fighting enemy's, button bashing ad cinematic's which doesn't lose the flow of the story and game, though I did expect more puzzles than I found in the game. There are various weapons; Bow, Pick Axe, Shotgun, Rifle and Pistol which can be upgraded but you do have to find pieces and salvage in order to upgrade.
People have complained that there are too many enemy's (you should play on easy then) and personally playing on Normal difficulty it was challenging when there was an area of large amount of enemy's but it would be no fun if it was totally easy.
The graphics, sound and details are amazing during game play and cinematic's and I personally feel is faultless.
People who have given the game of 1-2 stars I feel are people in their 40's who don't like change and fell in love with a trans-gender looking Lara in the 90's who basically went down hill after Tomb raider 2 and basically died.
The new resurrected Lara is absolutely beautiful in body and mind and is a great reboot to start a potential successful Tomb Raider series.
This game is alot of fun with a good story and plenty of game play, worth the purchase and you wont regret your decision.
