Its a SquareEnix game I actually like playing this gen took them long enough to do a great game besides Star Ocean.

I was looking forward to this one for a long while now. Happy that it delivered.

Thinking about Redboxing it, being that I want to play it, but I am building a pc that should be done soon enough and I want to buy it for pc.
It would also make for a good personal comparison between the two versions.

Cystal Dynamics/Square Enix did a spectacular job in putting Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider Series back from a monotonous past and spicing it up big time.

Question is how will they or any developer can ever top that?

I've seem what happens to good games when people have preconceived expectations. Most people accepted the new Tomb Raider... and that's good. What wasn't so good was that DMC got raked over for not being same as it's previous iterations.

Ironic ain't it!

I was just thinking that. Somehow Tomb Raider gets a free pass for changing it's formula, but other games change their formula and people are like "WHAT THE HELL DID THEY DO TO MY FAVORITE FRANCHISE!!!"

It probably has to do with the state of the series itself. The first few games were good though, after a point, quality started dipping. Only the last few releases were seen as quality games. With the last to be released (not counting the new reboot, obviously) not even trying to be similar to the past games.
With Devil May Cry, only two left a sour taste in people's mouths. Three is a lot of people's favorites, where 4, while weak in some areas, was still enjoyed by many.

I don't know though, personally. I appreciate both reboots of these series and consider them both quality games. Hell, I haven't even touched a game in the Tomb Raider series, but I have been looking forward to this one since they originally showed gameplay of it.

Already finished it with 100%. It was good and a lot of fun. But it felt more action packed than other Tomb Raiders. Uncharted is closer to the old TR feeling than this, but this is still a very good and fun game. They do deserve it.

This game is pretty incredible, graphically it looks superb the amount of detail in the environment is amazing. The controls feel great,Lara's development throughout the game is done extremely well, Tomb Raider is very cinematic with some truly epic and jaw dropping scenes and uses a minimalist Hud which is also something I absolutely love about this game. The pacing is also spot on allowing for you to wander off a bit and explore secret tombs and find hidden items while still progressing forward through the story. You have plenty of incentive to collect salvage and such to upgrade your abilities and weapons and as mentioned earlier the island looks so damn good you'll want to explore everywhere you can.I was expecting a good game when I picked up Tomb Raider but didn't really think it would be this good. I'm impressed and extremely happy to see a reboot of this caliber especially with a gaming icon such as lara croft. I'm glad to see it's selling well, If you haven't already do yourself a favor and go pick up this game you will not regret it.

Superb game, my hat is off well done Crystal Dynamics.
susanto1228  +   1067d ago
Im buying it once it reaches 39.99
MasterCornholio  +   1067d ago
I was going to dismiss this game because i thought it was a complete rip off of uncharted but due to all the positive reviews im willing to give this game a chance.

BTW Tomb Raider fans no offence.
EbeneezerGoode  +   1067d ago
It is better than I initially thought, the first hour or so put me off - too hand holding, too many QTE and cutscenes, but thankfully it does open out into a really good game after that.

It still has a couple of REALLY annoying pieces (non spoiler but lets say a couple hard to control + wobbly cam 'set pieces' when you can end up spiked to death even though you can barely see what's going on) - other than it has a good bit of exploring, but it's not your old style tomb raider, but fun anyway and has some lovely graphics in places (even just on my PS3) - more realistic/gritty than Uncharted but not quite as technically impressive (nor as slick controls/gunplay) but it's a good game.
Sugreev2001  +   1067d ago
I'm surprised this hasn't been brought up as much as I would've liked.The set pieces are great,but the level of error is way too high.You can barely see whats going on at times and the quicktime events can be grating too,sometimes asking for too much of a precise moment to press the button (usually the same button,but grating nonetheless). Still,the single player is absolutely awesome.
PersonMan  +   1067d ago
Thank goodness Uncharted games don't use QTE's.....whew.
TimeSkipLuffy  +   1067d ago
no wonder... Finally other ppl can play cool games like the PS3 exclusive Uncharted :P ;DD
ravibabu  +   1067d ago
Nice game.....
LAWSON72  +   1067d ago
I thought this game was going to suck, but it is pretty good. I think is fun but seriously it is so easy and simple a chimpanzee could beat it, no offense chimpanzees.
BioDead  +   1067d ago
I'm kinda cofused with the name. The original, the first one, were Tomb Raider as well? And this is also Tomb Raider but actually it 9th?
Or is this Tom Raider Origins ?

EbeneezerGoode  +   1067d ago
You never heard of reboots?
fsfsxii  +   1067d ago
Just finished the game.
And they deserve even more, the game was just PERFECT
Sugreev2001  +   1067d ago
I'm enjoying the single player a lot.I'm glad it's doing well commercially.Like Uncharted took it's basic concept from Tomb Raider,the latter has also learned some great things from the former.This is why competition is good for the industry.
PersonMan  +   1067d ago
This definitely feels like it took a lot of hints from the Uncharted series, but I look at that as a GOOD thing.

Please don't try to tell me that Uncharted copied Tomb Raider because the old Tomb Raiders were not third person shooters and they played nothing like Uncharted.

That being said... I don't know whether I've just played Uncharted 2/3 way too much or perhaps Tomb Raider is doing it BETTER than Uncharted ever has. I like the open-ness of Tomb Raider and the bow is just about the coolest weapon EVER!
latinillusion81  +   1067d ago
this game is great. plays alot like uncharted but better because of the free roam. it also has a twist towards the end just like uncharted 1 and 2 had
skyrimer  +   1067d ago
Such an amazing game, I thought it would be good but not this good, in many ways I like it better than uncharted, besides on PC in 3D is MINDBLOWING AWESOME!
EbeneezerGoode  +   1067d ago
I play in fake/2D>3D 3D on my PS3/TV looks great even like that. May buy the PC version in future for full 3D mode (when I get a NEW GPU)
KuroiTori  +   1067d ago
Glad to hear it.
Roper316  +   1067d ago
all's it needs in the sequel is more elaborate tombs & puzzles.
illustratedDEO  +   1067d ago
heck yea that what i like to hear.
lovegames718  +   1067d ago
From what i have read in regards to user feedback this game deserves all the sales it gets. I myself will be picking it up soon based off of user reviews (thanks guys that give us input on the game).

Lara your back with a bang! Good for you. And remember we as consumers have a voice which is our wallets. Buy good games and boycott bad devs like the bs with Final Fantasy and such!!!
HonestDragon  +   1067d ago
One million copies sold in just 48 hours? That's incredible. They really deserve it. It's a great game.
Acadius  +   1067d ago
This game is far better than I expected. Whenever Gamestop aired their stupid pre-order commercials for the game, I thought, wow this looks like crap. It wasn't until I saw the game on Conan's Clueless Gamer and was impressed. I love this game. And I'm a huge Uncharted fan. This game is great.
Silly gameAr  +   1067d ago
It's kind of sad that it's not the good reviews or praise the game is getting that made it to the top, but how much the game sold and how it's better than another game, that did.
