Rated 10 out of 10 by Raindown Cinematic and Gorgeous on PC
Wow, the graphics on a good PC are amazing. I used to get frustrated with the past Tomb Raider (TR) games because I would mindlessly wonder or not be able to figure out a puzzle. This takes all the headache and leave all we love about the TR series, compelling store, adventure and the beautiful Lara Croft. The game play is fantastic and polished, well done. There are these epic cliffhanger moments that really give this game a movie like fee.
The story is compelling, but I can't say I was emotionally committed to it like when playing some other titles like Mass Effect or Dragon Age. Yes, you feel Lara's pain as she struggles again impossible odds. However, you don't really share in her loses or care expressed told her crew. That said I was compelled to finish the game.
The level and weapons systems add a refreshing a nice element to the game as you grow Lara. All in all great. It was enjoyable seeing the beginnings of the young Lara Croft and perhaps some insight to how she came to be.

I got this game for free via an AMD promo and WOW is it stunning. I didn't expect to start off the game in fear for my life or to struggle to figure out what would seem to be the simplest puzzle.
This isn't the game I expected it to be, but it's clearly something much better. This game isn't for the faint of heart nor the weak willed. You will need to gather some courage to explore deeper into the world of Tomb Raider.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Tivoo Pretty good
Long time fan of the Tombraider series since release on PS1. I was a little worried since the trailers looked like they were going in a different direction with gameplay with this one, but its actually pretty good. Great graphics, Leveling system with unlockable "perks",scavenging, hunting, puzzles to figure out to get our of different enviroments and a pretty good story line so far. I really like what they have done to change the game up a little bit but not to far from the original tombraider roots. I have yet to try the multiplayer. My PC set up is as followed: AMD 8350 eight core processor, Nvidia Geforce 560ti in SLI, 850watt XFX PSU. 8gb ram. And im able to run the game maxed out (excluding V-Sync) with an average of 34 FPS with the In-game Benchmark.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Gameman2001 A pretty weak tomb raider game......
campared to the older ones.thay just took away everything that i liked and was fun about the others like swiming under water, exploring. riding motor bikes and other things.I think thay should have kept theam rated t for teen.tomb raider games were fine the way thay were being made before this one.for me this is a really weak tomb raider game compaired to the others.tomb raider legend and underworld are still my two favorites to this day.I think tomb raider legend is my all time favorite.if you played the older ones and liked theam odds are you might not like this one.the best thing about this one is the Graphics but Graphics are not everything.I would not recommed this one to any body who loved the old ones.
Rated 10 out of 10 by FlashNova857 One of the best games I have played
I have played a lot of games and this one by far is one of the best. When I first saw that this game was coming out I didn't know what to think because I had never really played a tomb raider game. After it launched I waited a little bit and saw that the reviews were outstanding. So I thought I would download the game and I am so happy that I did. While my laptop could only play the game on medium graphics the graphics were still amazing. The story kept you hooked and on the edge. While the multiplayer kinda sucked I didn't buy this game for the multiplayer! If you have not already purchased this game you are missing out big time!
Rated 10 out of 10 by sniperguy1111 Tomb Raider returned to glory
I played all the other tomb raider games since ps1 and also all three uncharted games on ps3. This game was amazing from the story, combat, (lot of quick time events think god of war esk). I could not put it down until I finished it not a long long game but I would say I had 10-15 hours into it at about 70% completion. If you enjoyed uncharted and/or the original tomb raider then you will love this game. I did not play the multiplayer so I can not attest to how that is. I would say a half off sale on steam would be the perfect time to pick this up for a play through.
Rated 10 out of 10 by DefiantRules Very good game Wish multiplayer was better
i hate action games and never got into tomb raiders before but i picked this one up and was VERY pleased with how it was. the feeling that you get playing this is a heart thumping and it really puts u in the character shoes and u grow attached to the characters. My only complaint is the multiplayer. if you are going to buy this game just for the multiplayer DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT. the multiplayer is like a bad version of uncharted multiplayer. But the Single player is well worth the 45 and then some. high praise for this game high praise indeed
Rated 8 out of 10 by Coolyo A Great Game that thrives off of it's campaign
So yes, the graphics are amazing (and not demanding for PC), and the campaign was amazing, besides some of the cheesiness towards the beginning (adventure found me quote, meh). Anyways the multiplayer isn't anything special but it can be fun with friends and there is some good DLC. Overrall a good buy, and the game is always cheap or on sale so the price is always good.
Rated 9 out of 10 by GplayerX1 Warning !!! Not your old tomb raider
If you have played all the old T R games This may not be what your expecting. I like the game so far, but just be warned the violence is explicit. Lara will be doing a lot of killing in this game,and not just wolves, dinosaurs and bears like in the old games. People Lots of people. Graphics and sound are awesome !!! Got it on steam For my new rig that I built Looks and sounds amazing. (Warning parents) The M rating is there for a reason.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Sinmaster Just insane
This game is beautiful from graphics to storyline, and game play. I gotta say i have never scene beautiful scenery's such as this. This game has a horror feeling to such as stuff popping out. I had my Sony Stereo headset on and stuff pops out and i seriously jumped. The sound is amazing when playing with a gaming headset or non since i like bass which this delivers. The storyline always has you on the edge with a lot of action,suspense, and drama. 10/10 because this is like many genres in one, deserves game of the year.
