Lara Croft Back from the Dead,
This review is from: Tomb Raider (PS3) (Video Game)
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 and 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.
