Intro:

Tomb Raider is a reboot of an action-adventure video game franchise developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. The game was released on 5 March 2013 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and got an OS X Linux version in 2014 and 2016. The game, according to Crystal Dynamics, was in development since 2008. And, oh boy, it's hard to imagine how worth the waiting actually was.


Story:

Set on a mysterious island (which is populated by mysterious inhabitants), the game sees Lara find herself in a cave after a shipwreck. In the beginning, sadly, all you can actually notice (beside pressing the keys on your keyboard 20 times in a few seconds for the sake of Lara's survival who is running away from chasers or falling rocks) is Lara's scream which can become annoying from time to time. The developers seem to make us want to know that she is a young scared girl who needs to get used to all this, but I am sure there are better ways to show that. Though, Camilla Luddington's voice performance overall is really good and is definitely worth a mention.

The first hour or two are more-less sequences that help build the protagonist. Once you passed that, the game becomes a wonderful thing to play and will make you loose on the island many times. When you eventually move your head away from the monitor, you'll notice how time flies away really fast. Lara's character is built very carefully throughout the whole story which you can't, sadly, say about the supporting characters. They often feel pretty shallow, if you could say so.

A lot of times you'll have the feel of being an actual movie where a lot of the stuff that happens (which will either help or hinder you) is happening just in the moment you'd expect it to happen. While I wasn't a very big fan of that, I can't deny the fact that it really helped me solve some of the puzzles at times.

The first kill in the game is pretty dramatic and might have an emotional impact on some players. However, the transition from that over to a survivor who will happily kill enemies is almost instant and I didn't like that. Basically, you gotta get used to killing in an instant just like Lara herself.


Gameplay:

The combat in Tomb Raider games, if memory serves me right, had never been really beautiful. However, things really do change. Very often, you get the chance to feel like a hidden assassin and I can't explain how much I love that. The game approaches the combat in a very satisfying way. Cheers to Crystal Dynamics for that.

All the weapons are the way they should be. The star of the whole game is definitely Lara's Bow. All the main battles are challenging and require mostly patience. The enemies will be more than happy to take you out of your shelter.

The game's polished almost as much as it can be. The controls are pretty good - it's as simple as it goes. All the movement animations are very natural and as dangerous as you'd expect them to be. As you're building the skills, at the same time you get the chance to explore secret tombs that give you the feel of an actual explorer while at the same time not damaging the main story.

A lot of the puzzles are easier when compared to those from previous games. This may disappoint some older fans. With Tomb Raider being a modern adventure game, quick time events are there. Luckily, they aren't around as often as many were feared they would be and they're not very hard after all. There's a particular one that really annoyed me. It's set in cave where you get attacked by a wolf and I eventually completed it after retrying it around 20 times and that was the most annoying part of the game.


Graphics:

The whole presentation of this game looks and sounds just beautiful. The best experience will obviously have those guys with the strongest PCs and I would like to mention an option which enables more-less (for the period it was created in) realistic hair named TressFX which makes the end result even more beautiful.

Some tricks with slow motion as well as motion blur combined with great voice performances help create a real movie experience. The sounds are top-notch and perfectly follow the game throughout all its gameplay and cutscenes.


Verdict:

Some fans will not like the idea of the series getting a reboot after all these years, but this reboot, whether you like the idea or not, is really good and absolutely worth a try. Lara's transformation from a scared young girl to a survivor is a bit weird and kind of fast, but all the great aspects of this game (multiplayer excluded) make it hard to notice.

This is an exciting and beautiful-looking game. The single-player is very well-written and there are a lot of secret tombs for you to find and explore if you'd like to take a break from shooting all the enemies. Overall, the game is filled with action most of the time and action fans like myself will love that. If you got some spare time and would like to try an action filled game, this is the right thing to go for.

Tomb Raider Game of the Year
----------------------------------------------------------------------
As a long time fan of the series, and one who has played all the previous games I was super excited to get into this review.

What an Amazing new take on Tomb raider, The Graphics are insanely beautiful, the opening cut scene looking like more of a movie, and it has you on the edge of your seat. Love the effects of an "out of it" state after removing the thing that impales you in the start.

Lara is very well drawn, everything looks so realistic and artistic, the creepy skeletons everywhere are an excellent touch, the music is also good all around. I'm not a huge fan of Quick Time Events but the ones in this game aren't so bad.

The creepy cavernous crypts really set the scene for this game right off the bat, bring a much needed more scary tone to the series.

The Gameplay is great, Besides the Graphics, the Controls in this Tomb Raider are the HUGEST improvement by far, everything is very fluid, the original games controls where kinda weird and hard to control at times.

Love how everything moves, and your avoiding stuff like indiana jones or Prince of persia the way you evade.

I definitely enjoyed these cut Scenes more than the Tomb Raider movie.

Overall this is an absolutely Gorgeous masterpiece of art and a pretty cool game with evasion techniques that resember that of prince of persia while the action is constantly moving it keeps you on your feet and ready for anything in the crypts, jungles and beyond.

Pros:
+ Amazingly Gorgoues Graphics
+ A Nice Reboot to the series
+ Full Controller Support, and GREAT controls compared to the original games
+ Multiplayer
+ Steam Achievements
+ Steam Trading Cards
+ Lots of DLC, Making the GAME of The Year Version by far the best Value

Cons:
- Never Getting to see her Naked (Come on, you know thats always been a thing)
- The Saves not being explained, Its a checkpoint system which is good, but kept playing waiting for a place til save til I died and realized it saves at the checkpoints.

There are three things in this new Tomb Raider that I really liked.

1. Big open maps, designed with exploration in mind, cleverly broken into several parts that you uncover as you go, with the help of new tools you find along the way. Each map promotes exloration by having several secret areas with short puzzles in them. I'd spend hours making sure I got to every corner of each map.

2. Enemy AI. Human enemies use cover, flanking maneuvers, suppression fire, pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails to force the player to move and think on his feet.

3. Most platforming sections are really fun, with short in-engine cut scenes from time to time to make traversing maps a bit more interesting.

There are two things I didn't like.

1. QTEs (Quick Time Events) - these should've never been included. I have a feeling it was implemented under pressure to make the make more "cinematic". Which only manages to make TR look like an Uncharted knock-off. What's more, some QTEs are scripted so badly that a quick load would go straight into the QTE I just failed without giving me any time to gather myself. QTEs were by far the biggest source of frustration for me while playing TR.

2. Gunplay. For some reason shooting in this game feels weird (probably because of the fact that the game's controls also support gamepads and their sensitivity is tweaked with them in mind), it never felt saisfying to shoot any of my guns (shotguns have terrible range, rifles have terrible recoil, and pistols are generally useless when facing groups of enemies, without the extended magazine and increased damage). Fortunately, most locations allow a stealth approach.

Overall I loved the game. It could've been better, but I think it's a worthy addition to one of the most popular game franchises.

One of the best reboots in recent memory. A super enjoyable romp from start to finish. I previously beat this game on PS3 back when it came out but was pretty indifferent about it. Maybe it was the extra spit and polish of the PC version or the buttery smooth frame rate, but I enjoyed this a hell of a lot more the second time round on my personal computer. Awesome stuff from a series that was on it's last legs years before.

>Walk into a room all stealth-like
>A group of enemies is in front of me; they don't see me
>a gas pipe is conveniently throwing gas into all of their faces
>I conveniently got my fire arrows back 3 minutes ago
>I groan incredibly hard and let out a huge sigh

Man, I don't mean to sound like one of 'those' people but I just got done playing Doom and to go into a game whereby the ENTIRE experience can basically be summarized as one long cinematic is so awful. There are scenes in this game where woah holy sh*t everything is BEING DESTROYED AROUND ME LOOK AT ALL THE CHAOS all I gotta do is press forward on the control! Yeah it looks awesome and I loved it at first but after the fifth time I just rolled my eyes so hard. At a point I wondered what the difference would be between what I'm doing and just watching a Let's Play of the game. Because this thing might as well play itself at this point.

Just as the aforementioned room of explosive gas and enemies most areas you enter have everything set in a way that it might as well have been ANOTHER QTE. You are in a tunnel and crawl through it, and an enemy will always walk in front of you but not see you. The logical progression here is silently take him out, then take out his friend next to him on this small walkway where you have no option but to confront him, and then take cover behind this conveniently placed piece of cover on this small walkway and take out the enemies that are clearly in your line of sight whilst covering, proceed once they're dead to this QTE event where you press forward and ocassionally press the jump button as everything blows up around you. This isn't a game it's an ''interactive experience'' where even the shooting segments where you're actually playing the game feel like a QTE. That's amazing.

There was a point in the game where it started getting REAL good. This was somewhere around the mid point, where I find one of Lara's allies and am in a relatively large area with the task of getting to a waypoint. I felt like I was actually given a challenge and had to find a way to accomplish it. ''Ah, I can go here and then proceed this way''. Granted the solution was still just one, but giving me the space to FIND the solution rather than being given it makes a world of difference: you're still being linear in design but not in results and what the gamer is actually going through mentally. Allow me to fail; give me the space and vagueness to make me THINK and CONSIDER options. The solution can be one but give me the space to think of what it might be before you tell it to me cause having me stop and think is somehow an evil. Worry not cause the game defaults on QTE once again after that incredibly short section.

It's a shame; the game had a few glimmers of what could have been. Beyond the ''walk through small crevices really really really slowly'' sections, you had a few 'optional tombs'. Lara would monologue any pertinent information, and continue to do so as you explored it further. You walk in and find a way to get the treasure chest; simple but this is about as much puzzling this game will ever get. Too bad these tombs were short as hell and literally consisted of one puzzle each. One simple puzzle.

Then there was the Rambo feel I got at times: Lara making her way through the jungle alone with enemies looking for her. In the beginning you have to kill a deer for food; Lara is pensive but does what needs to be done. I was prepared for Rambo part 5. Nope; here's Lara's friends and people who's names you don't actually remember other than Sam and Roth (you know I'm right). We can't go down the internalized grief and silent suffering of a protagonist, gotta interrupt it with her friends coming on-screen every few seconds. Not caring for the storyline, which is typically VERY important in super linear games like these, is a HUGE detriment. I just didn't care about Bob or whatever the hell that dude who showed up for three minutes was. And it's not until now that I remembered there was that other explorer dude who was PRETTY IMPORTANT for 50 minutes. They're just not very interesting or, other than Sam, that vital to the storyline. Yet a lot of time is spent on them. It's really weird.

Anyway if you like Asura's Wrath but without an interesting plot or like QTE's in general and shaky cams that make your damn hurt (I'm not the only one) then this incredible game is up your alley. Otherwise stay clear; it's the WORST of modern gaming design. Which means an automatic overwhelmingly positive on the steam store.

Never played the originals. However some info on the reboot had me intrested. I think they did a great job laying down the foundation of a strong female character lead. It was a stepforward in building games and hope to see more from the franchise in the future if it continues down this path.

One of the few reviews I will ever make...I decieded to write it down now, after a few weeks finishing the game, to be more calm and some kind of objective.

To summarize, this edition of TR is a classic that nobody should miss. Basically, the hightlights are Great graphic and Good stroy.

Graphics are really spectacular, even to the standard of 2016. Cameras are in the best position most of the times. And the scenes looks real with little consumption on the resources, which is a rare quality in 3A works. The orgnization of scenes actually gave me a feeling of a movie and the shift and vibrant of the camera added the flavor magnificiently.

AND THE STORY. Rich in details and portaits. Every main character has some kind of essence that makes him or her real. They are no heros. They are ordinary people like you and me, even someone you see on the train. The story portries the characters to shows their history and indicates their own story. Working with the collective notes and artifacts, they make a more complete world.

The story is twisted, apart from the unlikeliness that soul transfer and such thing, the story is rich in twists and mistries to explore, with or without DLCs...

I can't discrible everything to you... Have fun exploring and experiencing : )

Tomb Raider 2013 is an odd one for me. As someone who grew up loving the original series, I don't consider this a very good Tomb Raider game; Nonetheless it's a fun experience. The story still involves plenty of mystical lore and exotic locals, I just wish the gameplay revolved more around exploration and enironmental puzzles rather than massive combat arenas and bombastic quicktime-event cutscenes.

The 2013 series reboot breathes new life into the long-running Tomb Raider franchise, shedding almost two decades of baggage in the process. Lara Croft is no longer a seasoned professional explorer, but a young adventurer shipwrecked on a mysterious island after a freak storm. Lara must learn to fight for survival as she attempts to rescue her friends and unlock the mysteries of the island.

Crystal Dynamics does a great job handling the reboot and deliver a thoughtful, grounded reimagining of the iconic character. Most notably, Lara trades her trademark short shorts and sunglasses for grime and blood and scars, all earned as her instincts are honed into those of a rugged survivor. Lara is imbued with quite a bit more personality than her previous incarnation and is elevated beyond a quippy gunslinger / sex symbol and revealed to be a determined and resourceful young woman who is fiercely devoted to her friends.

Tomb Raider's story is solid, if a little predictable, and the plot moves quickly enough that you don't really have to worry too much about the details. Like it's earlier iterations, Tomb Raider resides mainly in action movie territory, with big shootouts and explosions going off every few minutes. The gritty setting works well but is a bit overdone and the action and settings get shlockier the further you go into the game. Lara may start out as an inexperienced fighter, but you'll murder hundreds of deranged islanders and destroy countless blood-soaked ruins by the end of the game. That said, you do get some subdued moments of exploration and opportunities for stealth gameplay that feel all the more rewarding by contrast. I kind of wish CD had leaned a little harder on the stealth gameplay, but the 3rd-person combat is enjoyable and the weapon upgrade system is simple and compelling.

The level design is honestly some of the best I've seen in a triple-A game, and each area of the map is chock full of eye candy, both beautiful and macabre and setpieces are imbued with a tangible sense of scale. Strangely, the titular tombs are almost painfully short, with most only featuring a single puzzle element and a few rooms. Despite being some of the most visually interesting areas in the game, most serve only as simple detours.

Gameplay is solid overall, but there are a lot of on-rails quicktime events that you're either going to love or hate, and though these get pretty repetitive, the game uses them just sparingly enough that you don't feel like it's all you get to do. Beyond combat and puzzles, there's plenty of Assassin's Creed style vertical exploration and lots of interesting areas to explore. It's weighed down a bit by an excess of collictibles, which has you hunting for everything from intriguing relics and journals to simple GPS beacons scattered in tedious locations all over the map, but thankfully these are easily ignored and entirely optional.

Despite a few minor nitpicks, I found Tomb Raider to be a solid gameplay experience and a compelling reintroduction to the series.
