Rated 10 out of 10 by ToyMachineMan123 Tomb Raider (A first for me!)
Tomb Raider (as I have heard) has always been a popular series. One for it's unique play-style and awesome areas to explore. Unforgettably, it was one of the most best game platforms to play. I, unfourtantely, was not able to experience the old classics as anyone that could. I missed out on some great titles from that. When this game came out, I was always hearing good comments and reviews on it. So when it came out for Xbox Live for free. I decided to go ahead and grab it. Of course, I was skeptical since Square Enix helped work on this project (as most of their games don't really sell too well) so I took a stab at it to try it. Knowing that Tomb Raider was a story-driven action game, I knew I'd be seeing a lot of cliche story and fighting moments; but boy, I was wrong. Tomb Raider starts off with a great bang into the series introduction, giving you a climatic moment and tons of brutality to Laura Croft. The game deserves the M+ rating. Unlike games like Uncharted and Batman. This game isn't afraid to explore the true colors of accidents and terror. For me, it was mind blowing to see how crazy the game started off and it still continues to go on and on without letting up. The graphics are visually stunning and appealing to the eyes. Of course, since this is on the next-generation of gaming, the graphics are significantly improved slightly. When I played this I originally thought it was a movie! In all honesty, it's a great game to start with. The sounds are a little chippy and off, but the graphics and game-play make up for it all. I tend to think that this game was worked on for a long time and was actually produced to stand out. Because it did! Other than that, I still have tons of playtime left on that game though, but I will have to catch up with you guys later! Totally get this while it is still out gents and ladies!

Rated 9 out of 10 by NamelessJ Funnest game I've played so far
I got my xone at launch, and picked up BF4 as my first game. Then COD ghosts, and then traded in the two to get Titanfall. All first person shooters that weren't giving me the edge I wanted. I was barley even touching my xbox because I just had no urge to play. I finally decided I wanted to try something new, something more adventurous. It was between AC4 and Tomb Raider, and I must tell you TR was an excellent choice. Graphics are Great, Story is great, sound is great. I love looking for the different artifacts and documents placed throughout this game, and become real excited when I discover a new tomb to explore. The story of this game is great and some parts get eerie when your out in the woods at night and you can hear the wolves coming. As for the multiplayer, I think there's really something there, but there's not enough people who play it. The level designs are cool, you can set rope traps which I think is pretty funny, and there's lots of characters to unlock and play. If they could improve the graphics and mechanics of the multiplayer, then they could be on to something big.
Rated 0 out of 10 by GageB Hopepul, but doubtful..
First, I wish the game wasn't re-releasing as a full 60$ game. I would gladly pay 40$, but 60$ seems excessive. Considering it will contain all DLC though, and a texture and slight gameplay update it might be worth the full 60$ I guess. Second, I really hope it contains a new set of achievements. I would be upset if my achievements from the 360 version carried over considering I would think of this as a different game. I really hope there is even changes to existing achievements. Third, will my multiplayer status carry over? Like, rank, loadout, KD, etc. So many questions that I haven't seen answered yet. So far, I see no reason to get the new game until they provide more detail to achievements and multiplayer questions. (Here's to hoping that the MP on this version is updated and funner...)
Rated 9 out of 10 by itsjesus Great change of scenery
Having just gotten my Xbox One a couple of weeks ago, I wasn't sure what games to get and was disappointed by how few games are out for the new Xbox. I decided to try Tomb Raider because I had a roommate who had been playing it on the PS4 and it looked cool. I loved the story line and how it combined history with a little fantasy. I found the game play a nice change of scenery from the first person shooter genre that has been beaten to death. I would say that Tomb Raider closely resembles Splinter Cell in certain aspects like the 3rd person stealth/parkour based game play. I really enjoyed the game and it looks amazing with a 1080p tv and an hdmi cable. I would definitely recommend Tomb Raider for anyone looking for a slightly different game with and interesting story
Rated 8 out of 10 by QuackAttack2009 Next Gen Reboot
I bought this game on 360 and it was good for what it was. It looked great, played great, and was just a great game. But coming to the next gen, that hasn't really changed. Yes, they redid the graphics. Yes, that made it look great. Did it change the game? No... Same game. It came with all of the dlc which was nice. But to me it was not worth rebuying the game. Nobody yet again played the multiplayer. It was all about the single player. My friends and I tried to get together and play the multiplayer but nobody was playing. If you bought it for the 360 and wanna move up? Go for it. But do not go into this purchase thinking you have bought anything different from the original other than the graphics. I still love this game though.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Guitardude Great campaign while it lasts, less than ok MP
The campaign for this game is amazing and I really enjoyed it, but after the completing the story you're allowed to go back and continue, but without any enemies. You also cannot go back to any of the sections of the game which you missed, and i'm not a huge fan of playing games over and over just for my favorite parts, especially since this is a long game, which is good, but then....there's MP. The MP is terrible, looks terrible, it's glitchy, head-aching, and there can only be 8 people per game on from what I believe is only one map (correct me if i'm wrong). It's a great game if you love a great story, but after the campaign is done there's really no more to it...
Rated 4 out of 10 by dudenkd Graphics are horrible, Game is stale
This game is really not that fun. The worst part about it is that it looks no better than the xbox 360 version. The graphics are terrible in this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Lew570 About as good as you can do.
I can't think of anything about this game that I could have been much better. The only flaw, if you can call it that, is that it isn't the longest story in the history of single player games. I thought the length was about right, but it's the only legitimate gripe I've heard about the game. The people that are online complaining about a 99% achievement glitch are just not very smart. There is no glitch, they just didn't do everything as it turns out. I haven't delved into the online play yet, as I'm more the solo gamer still, but that's coming up next. Great game! Probably the best on the Xbox One as of right now. Come on Thief... waiting on you!
Rated 2 out of 10 by RC1138 Repetitive and boring
Graphics look fine but that''s the only thing I liked. This game feels like a rip off of assassins creed with it's parkour mechanics. Very linear despite being on an island. Exceedingly repetitive and the story is just boring and uninteresting. There is almost nothing reminiscing of the old Tomb Raider games other than the girl being named Lara Croft. I get it's her origin story (again) but still this game is so weak in every aspect of gameplay. The multiplayer is just pure garbage and should have never been created. Definitely a buy and return.
