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.
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.
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.
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.
A Must Play!!!!!!
This game is very solid. The single player is where this game shines most. Why they made a multiplayer mode is questionable. I didn't find it appealing at all, but that is just my opinion. The storyline is very intense and keeps you interested the whole time, with a few surprises along the way. Obviously the best Tomb Raider thus far.
I think the campaign mode is great .
I think that the campaign is good but when it comes to the online multiplayers it kind of sucks because it's a 3d gsme but when you're playing online it kinds of 2d instead
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.
This game has excellent character development, graphics, and gameplay. I love the use of the bow, as well as the ability to be stealthy with silenced weapons. The story is great, and the environments are amazing. Definitely would recommend!
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
Since its release I've played this silly game 4 times. lol It's that good. The graphics and sound are great, but what keeps me coming back is the incredible story progression and the talented actors who make the characters come alive. ( Camilla Luddington did an amazing job capturing the essence of a young and vulnerable Lara ) Bravo!
