Years ago i played the original tomb raider and boy did i enjoy it. It was the first game id played with a woman and the main role and it wasnt just that she was hot for a computer figure but the games were epic. Years went by and tomb raider as a product vanished.
Well along comes the new tomb raider available on the PS4. I thought it was worth a try, just for old times sake but i wasnt expecting anything great.
My oh my how wrong was I.
Lara as tomb raider is back, and shes back with a bang!
This game has it all. Its gameplay is smooth and much improved, the storyline is good, the hidden items and easy to find, the customisation is good, the weapons are brilliant, charaters and graphics are absolute quality.
Lara is easy to control and she moves quite simply in every which way you can hope for. Its simular to AC controls but without the ever present button pressing to climb and grab ledges. Its very impressive. Quite simply she is better to control than the master assassin. The graphics really do look brilliant on a big telly in hd, and you can definately see the difference from a ps3. When shes wet she looks wet and when shes climbing or fighting or just in a cut scene everything is just as good as you could wish it to be.
The game suprised me in that it is quite raw and the fighting and kills are pretty graphic, not what you may expect from TR of old.
The setting is class too and the enviroments are easy to negotiate with the story split into sectors which you can also fast travel between if you want to go back for something you have missed.
The cut scenes and action scenes are quite simply some of the best and it just makes me wish i could play as Lara in a micro bikini lol.
Ok maybe im too old for falling in love with a computer game figure now but with the extras just check out the Girl that plays Lara Croft. WOW.
Ok so shes hardly working class, actually growing up trying archery isnt exactly everyones cup of tea or available to 99 percent of the population but she is definately made for the role.
Now i feel its just time for a new generation to enjoy TR and for Lara the journey continues and its only going to get better.
Great news for us.

Rebooting a franchise is a delicate matter as I'm sure many would agree, not just the logistics of redesigning a specific, memorable character but to entice a new audience and produce something as fresh as the franchise was back then.

Lara Croft is no exception. She made the jump from her limited polygon days throughout the 2000's but not many people cared. Thus she faded from the limelight. Until 2013 when Tomb Raider was released.

Story

The only complaint that most reviewers have and that i tend to agree with is the story. Truth be told it's not the best story ever written. You will recognise certain ploys and plot twists and may even see them coming. But it's the island that fleshes this story out, it's the story behind the environments that guide you through the story and you end up just appreciating the narrative for what it is.

This is a origin story, it's taking a sweet and innocent girl, determined to follow her fathers legacy, and transforming her into a symbol of the strong, confident woman who can tackle anything in her path. Lara is not just the body that the player inhabits, she is a realised character, strong, confident and determined to survive (By the end, I'm sure you will agree with me!)

3/5

Graphics

Originally released in 2013 I must say the graphics were fantastic from the off. They were gorgeous, and well rendered, I personally never encountered texture pop-ins or any other occurrences that would have put the score down. Depending on the age of your machine the frame rate could sometimes stoop during intense firefights, but this was rare.

This definitive edition ups the ante on how powerful next gen consoles are. The team has rebuilt many environment and character models, using a higher pre render method allowing for the console to push what they have produced. Lara herself is more realised and fleshed out (literally!) Her hair flows naturally in-game and her skin shows the scars and wounds that she braves with a realism that is unmatched in many games. Particle effects seem to be all the rage right now with most next gen games, and Tomb Raider makes full use of that technology, firefights explode with beauty, dust falls from ancient environments and flames look fluid and glossed against a midnight backdrop. To say this game looks gorgeous would do it a disservice, but it's safe to say this Definitive edition packs an enormous amount of punch!

5/5

Gameplay

Like the original there is platforming aplenty, however most of the "Tomb Raiding" is left to 8 secret tombs hidden throughout the world (Including the 1 new tomb added with the new edition) Instead the game follows a more Uncharted-like experience, with extravagant set pieces and atmospheric exploring providing an almost movie-like experience. You collect a number of weapons throughout the game and are able to level-up and mod them to your hearts content. I should note however by the end of the game you will have pretty much maxed out everything.

The island is split into different areas and camps and features a Metroid style navigation where you can go back to previous locations to pick up any treasures you may have missed. It's not an open world game, but it comes pretty close.

You will be forced into firefights with many enemies and will be forced to use different firearms to deal with them, these fights get intense fast and will push you to use everything in your arsenal. To help you can use Survival Instinct to highlight items in the environment to help you out.

5/5

If you didn't get the chance to play this the first time around, it is now the perfect time, want action, drama, adventure and epic set-pieces? well here it is on a polished plate!

EPIC!
