As a huge fan of all the Tomb Raider games, as soon as i saw this game first announced over a year ago, i for one truly could not wait for the release. Well today i bought it and i've played around 30% of the game in single player mode and it really is Lara Croft at her best. I've only played single player mode though, not multiplayer yet.
Everything about the game is stunning, the graphics are absolutely amazing, it still amazes me even these days how graphics are so realistic. The gameplay is easy to get used to, you can now upgrade your weapons by collecting salvage, found by looting boxes, chests etc. You can upgrade your survival and combat Skills in any order you want to be able to survive in the rocky conditions. I also take my hat off to Camilla Luddington, the voice of Lara Croft, she's done an exceptional job doing her Oooo's, Arghhhh's and Ouch's as she's falling down cliff sides getting spikes stuck in her limbs. I think it shares a slight similarity to Assassin's Creed with the looting, killing and looting animals for XP and challenges and exploring Tombs which are optional Challenges but well worth it for the achievements and experience. All in all, the best tomb raider you will come across. I honestly thought it might be a slightly cheesy rip off version when i saw the price it was being released at but i was far far wrong. A must game for any gamer, especially Tomb Raider fans.
