This was a great read. The book contains extra info on how the game was built up, how the developers started with many ideas, a horroristic game with monsters, and how they ended up with a survival story. It was a long road and you can find many interesting concept arts about this in the book. If you're really into the game, you'll surely enjoy seeing all the awesome behind the scenes stuff.

Fans and gamers were spoilt with Tomb Raider - the rebooted origin tale of the titular Lara Croft - and this wonderful behind-the-scenes digital book companion will offer great insight into how it all happened. Veteran journalist Geoff Keighley provides a relatively comprehensive look at the design process, showcasing many concepts that never made it to the finished game, as well as artwork, sketches, interviews and reports on how Crystal Dynamics recreated the video game icon.

This well designed application is best used on a tablet computer, but can be enjoyed just as easily on a desktop. Additionally, there are interactive elements, such as panoramas of the developer's studio and a music mixer. Much of the video content is actually streamed rather than downloaded with the application, but I found the content both new and good quality.

While everything is well designed and easy to navigate, I found the content lacking. The whole book can be read in just over an hour, and there is little beyond the abandoned concepts that proves truly captivating. For those who have followed previews, the content could be considered lightweight. And for those who haven't, there isn't a great deal on offer to make this a must-buy.

For Lara Croft fans, this is a fine addition to a wonderful game, and for those interested in the development process, Tomb Raider - The Final Hours offers a glimpse behind the curtain into the industry and the pressure to reboot gaming royalty. Overall, however, this is just an optional add on that offers little value for money and should only be purchased as part of a collector's edition. There just isn't enough content to justify its asking price.

For the fans.

6.5/10.

Partly recommended buy, BUT it comes with quite some issues:

- videos get streamed from youtube! Which obviously means you can't watch them without internet connection.
- the interface is really annoying. No scaling options for the text, the "book" always goes fullscreen, but only takes a quarter of the screen, the "ingame" videos don't have basic options like a pause button.
- the readability of some text is plain awful.

If you like the game, and you're interested in some more content about it, i'd say it's worth the 0.49 on sale (or 1.99 regular). The delivered content is very good, the price is absolutely okay, but sadly the streamed videos, and especially the interface, is annoying and unnecessary.
Therefore i would highly recommend it if those issues wouldn't exist.

Awesome reading experience.

This is a digital book taking you to behind the scenes of the game development and take you inside the studio during development of game. It tells you about concepts that were never made to final game also it show panoramic views of the inside of island.There are many videos and the nice interactive music mixer and instrument playing and nice collection of artworks.

Would recommend this nice content........
